The SolidPass family of securtiy tokens provide strong authentication. SolidPass helps organizations and entities to realize stronger authentication than a static username and password by providing two-factor authentication. The SolidPass security token is engineered to to dynamically generate a one-time password (OTP). 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.
SolidPass supports the following strong authentication methods:
- Event-based One-Time Password (OTP)
- Time-based One-Time Password (OTP)
- PIN control mandatory/optional
- Security Question
- Transaction Data Signing (TDS)
- Mutual Authentication
SolidPass can be used to prevent the following attacks:
- DNS Cache Poisoning
- Browser Poisoning
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.
SolidPass works on a number of different platforms. The mobile platforms supported are as follows:
- Java ME
- Windows Mobile
Desktop Soft Token
SolidPass also supports desktop-based software tokens as well. The Desktop Operating Systems and Browsers supported are:
- Toolbar Token
- Java Token
- Linux Token
- Mac Token
- Windows Token
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.
Thus strong authentication can be built into standalone applications.
Regulatory requirements are pressuring organizations to adopt strong authentication methods and to secure access to data systems and applications. Static username/password identity management are no longer suitable 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 keep in
compliance 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
