HKUST Card has been issued to members of the University since February 2003. It is a smartcard stored with user’s information such as student ID, name, department, etc. University members can use this card as their personal identification for access to University resources and services.
To further enhance our computing environment, ITSC has designed a new type of digital certificate, namely Personal (Smartcard) e-Cert specifically for the HKUST Card. University members can apply for their digital certificates and store on the HKUST Card. We believe this smartcard will play an important role in our campus IT infrastructure in various aspects like
- Efficient Proof of Identity
- Secure Authentication
- Improved Access Control
- Reduced Administration Overheads
- Faster Electronic Transaction, etc.
With the HKUST Card, you can enjoy a number of services in a different way now and in future such as:
- Windows Logon at Computer Barn
- Send Secure Email
- Purchase of Print Budget (subject to bank agreement)
You may refer to the Use of HKUST Card for more information.
We look forward that, with more and more applications developed by us and other departments, this smartcard will bring us to a secure and efficient computing environment and lead us to a new digital era.
