SINA Terminal

A smartcard secured workstation without a hard drive

SINA Terminal

Only graphical screens of standard terminal server protocols of a terminal server located in a protected area are processed on the client. Data classified up to TOP SECRET can be processed ‘remotely’ through a cryptographically secured network connection via a potentially insecure network.

SINA Terminal (Thin Client) meets the most stringent security requirements and is, depending on the classification level of the data, available as a desktop PC as well as on a notebook platform. Access is protected by means of a smartcard or a USB smartcard token and PIN. The network traffic is cryptographically protected by an integrated IPsec VPN Gateway.

The SINA Terminal is:

  • a secure workstation within the communication network of a public authority to access classified information.
  • ideal for a home office connected by a cost-efficient Internet connection to the communication network of a public authority.
