The Raritan P2-EUST/C is an Enhanced User Station with an integrated Smart Card Reader for the Paragon II product family.

Raritan's Paragon II Common Access Card (CAC) solution enables government users to enforce HSPD-12 security regulations, while maintaining convenient access to IT equipment. Partnering with SCM Microsystems - an industry leader in smart card technology - we've redesigned our Paragon II Enhanced User Station (EUST), integrating their standards-compliant reader. It now provides operators with a single, universal smart card interface to each connected server. 

This CAC Solution offers you:

  • Highest Security. Paragon II does not store or cache any card data whatsoever; and each server's own authentication requirements are strictly maintained.
  • Proven FIPS 201 Technology. CAC card readers from SCM Microsystems are already widely deployed in government installations all over the world.
  • Turnkey Solution. Paragon II EUST's 1U form-factor saves space and reduces complexity.
  • Easy Upgrade. Our many existing Paragon II users can simply replace user stations and CIMs to upgrade to a CAC-enabled solution.

The Paragon II CAC Reader Solution is made up of the following components (all sold seperatly):

  • Enhanced User Station - Provides front-end interface for operators to access the integrated KVM environment
  • Matrix KVM Switches - Family of switching units, available in a variety of port densities, which seamlessly interoperate to provide a single logical KVM matrix.
  • Computer Interface Module (CIM) with Smart Card Reader Emulation - Small form factor 'dongles' attach to each server's KVM console and USB ports, integrating them into the matrix
    via standard Cat5 cabling.
