iPhone Security Token
The SolidPass™ family of security tokens supports Apple's iPhone mobile phones and iPod touch devices. The SolidPass™ software token for the iPhone 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.
iPhone One-Time Password Generation Application
The SolidPass iPhone mobile or iPod Touch application can be used for either event-based one-time password or time-synchronized OTP generation.
iPhone Mobile Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Application
SolidPass™ also supports the following additional strong two-factor authentication methods on the iPhone mobile or iPod Touch device platform:
- PIN control mandatory/optional
- Security Question
- Transaction Data Signing (TDS)
- Mutual Authentication
iPhone Mobile Token Convenience
The key advantage of the mobile token is that there are no new devices or wallet-fillers for customers – just an add-on to the device they already carry everywhere. Since customers already own the “hardware” (the iPhone enabled handset or iPod touch), SolidPass™ can be provided and managed at a fraction of the true cost of a hardware token solution. Thanks to its flexible framework, the application can also be updated to guard against new security threats.
iPhone Mobile Software Token Embedded
SolidPass™ is a software token built such that it can be used as a standalone product or embedded in iPhone applications such as mobile banking.
The iPhone 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.
