We are happy to announce that the SecSign ID server has passed the official FIDO certification program of the FIDO Alliance. This will allow you to use the complete FIDO2/WebAuthn standard for passwordless 2FA sign-ins in your existing applications with the help of our SecSign ID server.
The SecSign ID server is a two factor authentication (2FA) and identity and access management (IdM / IAM) solution. It allows you to secure your logins and transactions in all your applications including, but not limited to, web and mobile. It also has user management and access controls included and allows you to integrate it with your existing user directory like an Active Directory (AD) or Azure. The SecSign ID server can be integrated in all your existing flows using SAML, OAuth, Open ID Connect or REST for example. It supports a wide variety of authentication methods to use and combine as needed including our SecSign mobile app for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows and other methods like TOTP (e.g. Google Authenticator), SMS, Email OTP, certificates, smart cards and now also FIDO/WebAuthn.
FIDO2 is a set of specifications including the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Authentication (WebAuthn) specification and the FIDO Alliance’s corresponding Client-to-Authenticator Protocol (CTAP). FIDO2 enables users to leverage common devices to easily authenticate passwordless to online services both in mobile and desktop environments, and to utilize authenticators including USB/NFC security keys like the YubiKey or smart phones.
With the certified FIDO implementation of the SecSign ID server you have full compatibility with all existing and future FIDO authenticator devices and the server supports the complete FIDO/WebAuthn standard including the FIDO Metadata Service. You can integrate FIDO in all the authentication flows that are supported by the SecSign ID server and add FIDO support to your applications.
The SecSign ID server also supports multi-device FIDO credentials, known as “passkeys”. Passkeys extend the concept of FIDO platform authenticators. You don’t need a special hardware or app but just use the device you already own to sign-in. Passkeys are based on the FIDO standard, are being supported by Apple, Google and Microsoft, and make the use even easier than before. They give you access on all platforms and synchronize the credentials end-to-end encrypted between all your devices in the cloud. For example you can use FaceID on your iPhone to do a login on a Windows laptop. Likewise you can use your Android phone unlock pattern to authenticate a login on a Mac. On top of this they also improve the integration of the FIDO authentication on the native platform. And to prevent the loss of the credentials they enabling the recovery to a new device through your cloud account. The SecSign ID server allows to you to easily onboard and manage the devices and supplies you with the needed WebAuthn backend to use passkeys in your applications. Our server also allows a seamless integration with other FIDO devices and many fallback authentication methods with the same security level.
Trust in our 22 years experience with public key infrastructure (PKI). We design signature and authentication solutions that are built on PKI just like FIDO and WebAuthn. We deliver on premise and cloud solutions for our customers in highly audited environments and for extremely sensible and critical infrastructure but also for normal customers in the private sector who just need a secure and modern authentication or signature component.
