Personal Security Device genucard Home: Simple Exchange of Confidential Data

genucard Home Enables a Highly Secure Connection of the Home Office to Company Networks.

Employees working from home frequently need to access the internal network of their organization via the Internet in order to access confidential data or use software applications there. genucard Home protects this exchange of information against data espionage and other cyber risks. The security device is connected to the laptop or PC via Ethernet and ensures secure access to your network.

Installed as security systems on the security device are a firewall for connection monitoring within and outside of the VPN and a highly secure VPN gateway for smooth data communication. A smart card reader can be connected via USB.

Approved for classification levels German and NATO RESTRICTED as well as RESTREINT UE/EU RESTRICTED.

genucard Home Enables a Highly Secure Home Office Connection

Today, employees are increasingly accessing internal networks from their own home via the Internet. But if there is a lack of protection, this access can be the soft spot for IT security. The self-contained genucard Home IT security device uses Plug & Play to protect home office users against cyber-espionage, sabotage, data tampering, and theft.

genucard Home can be combined with any common laptop or PC and allows the home office to be securely connected to an organization’s network. Through the BSI approval, the solution is suitable for users from the public sector and companies with an obligation to maintain secrecy.

VPN for High-Security Data Exchange

As soon as genucard Home is activated, a strongly encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) is created for the remote peer configured in your network – all data communication is carried out exclusively via this highly secure data connection.

Authentication via Smart Card

Additional security features are authentication and key handling using a smart card. A supplied smart-card reader can be connected via USB. Without knowing the PIN and possessing the smart card, no one can initiate a connection to the internal network.

genucard Home Safeguards the Entire Data Communication Process

genucard Home is simply connected to the laptop or workstation via Ethernet and ensures secure access to your network. For this purpose, the compact device offers the following security systems:

  • Firewall
  • VPN gateway
  • Included smart card reader

Secure Communication on All Channels

genucard Home is equipped with the following interfaces to allow high-security data communication across all network channels:

  • WLAN Wi-Fi 5, dual-band
  • USB connection for smart card reader

A Self-Contained Device That Guarantees Security

This combination of features provides security for data communication that reliably protects external users. But that’s not all – with genucard Home, you also have another significant advantage: The security solution isn’t installed on the computer that it is supposed to protect but rather on an autonomous device with its own operating system. As a result, genucard Home remains fully functional even if the computer has already been compromised through careless handling. This means you are guaranteed the highest level of IT security right when it matters most – in an emergency!

Central Administration via Management Station

genucard Home can be connected to any laptop or PC. While Internet access and VPN profiles are selected using a local GUI, configuration and administration of genucard Home is carried out centrally from the Central Management Station genucenter. This means that you can control numerous personal security devices centrally and ensure that your desired configuration is installed uniformly throughout, monitor to ensure the correct function, and easily transfer updates.

Approval for Classification Level RESTRICTED

genucard Home has the official approval of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for classification level RESTRICTED.

Official public bodies, military units, and contracting companies with access to classified information can therefore use the personal security device to ensure that employees have secure access to data classified as restricted when working from home or in branch offices. According to the new directive for classified information (Verschlusssachenanweisung, VSA), the approval includes the firewall in addition to the VPN component.


Product Trainings genucard

With a setup consisting of the personal security device genucard, the firewall & VPN appliance genuscreen, and the central management station genucenter, it is possible to operate a VPN approved for classification level German RESTRICTED. The transmitted data is reliably protected from attackers by strong encryption algorithms. In this training, you will learn how to manage genucard and genuscreen with genucenter and how to handle keys with smart cards.
