Munich, Germany, and Paris, France – 29 November, 2021 – Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) is presenting the SECORA™ ID with FIDO® for secured authentication to online portals with user-friendly tokens. The leading security solution actively protects from tampering and fraud. Additionally, the company will showcase other products of the SECORA family of one-stop solutions at this year’s TRUSTECH from November 30 to December 2 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in Pavilion 5.2.
SECORA ID with FIDO for online authentication
Based on FIDO, Infineon’s latest addition to the SECORA ID portfolio makes it easy to enhance security of digital identities. The solution utilizes the open industry standard and provides a simple, reliable and secured method for online authentication. In combination with an electronic identity document (eID), FIDO can also be used by citizens to authenticate themselves to government portals and access their services. The solution is implemented on an EAL6+ certified security controller and a Java Card™ operating system. Being certified by the FIDO Alliance as a roaming authenticator, it supports FIDO’s CTAP2 protocol, which enables 2-factor and multifactor authentication via the NFC interface. As a versatile offering, available both as a standalone product as well as in combination with the eMRTD applet, it will cover all markets – consumer, enterprise and eGov applications.
Secured access to blockchains with SECORA Blockchain
In numerous use cases in industries such as logistics, automotive, and energy, the blockchain technology helps to track supply chains, protect brands, prove asset ownership, and manage contracts. However, to add transactions to a blockchain, the users usually need a private key that must be kept in a secured area. Such a secured “vault” for storing private keys is enabled by SECORA Blockchain security controllers, protecting access to blockchains. The SECORA Blockchain demo at the TRUSTECH 21 shows how to protect brands integrating a SECORA Blockchain chip into the products, and then link it to the blockchain to prove that the products are genuine.
Connected Payments for wearables and IoT devices with SECORA Connect
Payment wearables and smart IoT devices in different form factors are becoming increasingly popular as additional functions such as ticketing and access are added. With SECORA Connect, Infineon’s solution family for connected IoT devices, it is easy to secure payments and enable convenient biometric authentication.
