iPad Security Token
The SolidPass™ family of security tokens supports Apple's iPad. The SolidPass™ software token for the iPad is engineered to generate a one-time password (OTP) that dynamically changes. Potential uses of SolidPass include securing access to enterprise applications and vpn connections. The security token can also be used to authenticate users and sign transactions. This is especially useful for online banking and mobile banking security, where it can be embedded in a mobile banking application for seamless authentication.
iPad One-Time Password Generation Application
The SolidPass iPad application can be used for either event-based one-time password or time-synchronized OTP generation.
iPad Mobile Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Application
SolidPass™ also supports the following additional strong two-factor authentication methods on the iPad:
- PIN control mandatory/optional
- Security Question
- Transaction Data Signing (TDS)
- Mutual Authentication
iPad Mobile Token Convenience
The key advantage of the iPad tablet token is that there are no new devices or wallet-fillers for customers – just an add-on to the device they already carry. Since customers already own the “hardware” (the iPad), SolidPass™ can be provided and managed at a fraction of the true cost of a hardware token solution.
iPad Mobile Software Token Embedded
SolidPass™ is a software token built such that it can be used as a standalone product or embedded in iPad applications such as mobile banking.
The iPad security token can be used to prevent the following:
- Phishing Attacks
- Pharming Attacks
- Man-In-The-Middle Attacks
- DNS Cache Poisoning Attacks
- Trojans Attacks
- Man-In-The-Phone Attacks
- Browser Poisoning Attacks
Hardware tokens have a limited life span. After their obsolescence, they have to be discarded and new ones have to be issued. By contrast, iPhone tokens are a virtual product using existing hardware, thus minimizing negative externalities.
OATH Compliant Tokens
As a member of the Initiative for Open Authentication, SolidPass™ tokens are built OATH compliant.
Regulatory requirements are pressuring organizations to adopt stronger authentication methods and to secure access to data systems and applications. Static username/password identity management no longer provide enough security to authenticate users accurately. This has led to adopting two-factor authentication systems. Legislation from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), guidelines from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), and recommendations from the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) all require that organizations use stronger forms of authentication to mitigate data theft, prevent fraud, protect customer information and patient privacy. SolidPass helps organizations and enterprises comply with regulatory regimes that cover authorization rules and auditing protocols. In addition to non-compliance, organizations that continue to use static username/passwords face numerous problems ranging from brute force attacks, dictionary attacks, guessing and social engineering.
