BIO-key International and InterDigital, Inc. have announced that the companies have introduced InterDigital’s groundbreaking multifactor authentication (MFA) solution working with BIO-key’s fingerprint authentication for the Android mobile platform at Mobile World Congress (MWC), Barcelona, Spain this week. The newly developed solution is the first product to emerge from the collaborative efforts between BIO-key and InterDigital, announced in February 2013.
The new product is tailor-made to address consumer authentication needs for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and other large-scale service providers. Featuring full compliance with OpenID (OID) and capable of leveraging Trustonic’s Global Platform compliant Trusted Execution Environment and API, InterDigital’s MFA combines the most secure and transparent device level authentication with user-specific authentication options that leverage BIO-key’s interoperable fingerprint matching capabilities. The product is designed to utilize a variety of authentication factors and include support for FIDO authenticators. The architecture accommodates alternative federated authentication methods besides OID and BIO-key’s existing IAM integration with the IBM, CA and Oracle security platforms.
