Symbian Security Token
The SolidPass™ family of security tokens supports Symbian phones. The SolidPass™ software token for Symbian handsets 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.
Symbian One-Time Password Generation
The SolidPass Symbian application can be used for either event-based OTP or time-synchronized one-time password generation.
Symbian Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Token
SolidPass™ also supports the following additional strong two-factor authentication methods on the Symbian mobile platform:
- PIN control mandatory/optional
- Security Question
- Transaction Data Signing (TDS)
- Mutual Authentication
Symbian 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 mobile phone), 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.
Symbian Mobile Software Token Embedded
SolidPass™ is a software token built such that it can be used as a standalone product or embedded in mobile applications such as mobile banking.
The SolidPass Symbian 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, Symbian security tokens are a virtual product using existing hardware, thus minimizing negative externalities.
The Symbian platform is an open source operating system for mobile devices. It was created by merging and integrating software assets contributed by Nokia, NTT DoCoMo, and Sony Ericsson, including Symbian OS, the S60, UIQ and MOAP(S) user interfaces.
