Recently we were asked by our customers – is this possible to use “Wireless PC lock” tokens with Rohos Logon Key for user authentication into Windows. This week we got a sample of this product into our Lab and we are going to test it and then integrate into Rohos if possible.
We ordered our sample from SPIRIT-ON Enterprise Co. Ltd based on Taiwan. This hardware vendor produces PC accessories including RFID devices. This is the basic idea of the wireless token (scanned from the box):
When you step away from the computer with the token – it locks the desktop immediately and vice versa coming back will unlock the desktop.

It is important to note that logon information is not used in standard way and extracted from the card, only then directly submitted to logon process. Logon profile is encrypted in the cards.
