Thales’s tokenless technology enables any user to be authenticated anytime and anywhere. Thales’s context-based authentication offers convenient, frictionless strong authentication while maintaining the flexibility and agility to add protection with stronger methods of security in higher risk situations. Combined with “step-up” authentication, context-based authentication optimizes a layered approach to access security by assessing user login attributes and matching them against pre-defined security policies.
Pattern-based Authentication works by presenting the user with a matrix of cells during enrollment containing random characters, from which the user selects a Personal Identification Pattern (PIP). Every time the challenge grid appears, the characters in the cells are different, so the user is always entering a one-time passcode.
By assessing a user’s contextual login attributes, single sign on and access management solutions can continuously match the level of authentication required from the user with the access policy defined for each application.
Interface devices, or readers, are an essential component of any smart card deployment and ensure communication between smart cards and network services, but they must do so in a convenient yet secure manner. Thales’s full range of smart card readers provide the perfect balance of ease of use, backed by the highest level of security.
