NEOWAVE, a French leader in digital security solutions, and AET Europe, a Dutch manufacturer specializing in PKI security solutions, are proud to announce the joint launch of their latest innovation: a strong authentication and qualified electronic signature card, designed and manufactured entirely in Europe.​​

A sovereign solution compliant with European security standards

Resulting from the NEOWAVE-AET Europe collaboration, the Badgeo FIDO2 + QSCD card offers a new approach to digital security. It integrates the technologies of FIDO2 for strong online authentication and eIDAS QSCD for qualified electronic signatures. This combination guarantees a high level of security, reinforced by a Common Criteria (CC) EAL6+ certified smart card component. It meets European security requirements (eIDAS, QSCD, PSD2 etc.). It is perfectly suited to the high cybersecurity requirements of professional environments and can be easily deployed in an office environment​.

A reliable solution for optimal protection

The Badgeo FIDO2 + QSCD card is compatible with the FIDO2 (CTAP 2.1) and FIDO U2F standards. It integrates a QSCD eIDAS certified PKI applet as well as a Common Criteria EAL6+ certified smart card component. It thus allows users to benefit from an optimal level of security. The FIDO protocol provides strong and secure authentication, protecting online accounts against phishing attacks. The eIDAS qualified electronic signature guarantees the authenticity of the author, the integrity of the signed document, as well as its non-repudiation, in accordance with European standards and regulations regarding electronic signatures. It protects businesses from the risks of identity theft.

A unique offer in Europe

The Badgeo FIDO2 + QSCD card allows strong authentication and a qualified electronic signature dedicated to professionals in health, law (lawyers, notaries, etc.), the public service and others requiring very high levels of security. It can be inserted directly into a PC, laptop or tablet or connected via the USB-A or USB-C port of a smart card reader. It is compatible with major OS and browsers (Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, etc.)​.
We are delighted to present this solution resulting from the historic collaboration between NEOWAVE and AET Europe, an alliance that has lasted for many years. This joint initiative embodies European excellence in digital security. Within its product range, NEOWAVE also offers the LinkeoA-Y and LinkeoC-Y contact smart card readers labeled “Cybersecurity Made in Europe”, which can be combined with the Badgeo FIDO2 + QSCD card. NEOWAVE completes its range of authentication products manufactured in Europe with a unique offer on the market.





By combining our respective expertise, we offer businesses and individuals a complete and efficient solution to secure their online operations. The Badgeo FIDO2 + QSCD card helps ensuring digital sovereignty for Europe as all components of the solution are designed, developed and manufactured in Europe.
