Depending on their configuration, the certificate-based USB tokens can be FIPS and CC certified.
sKey3250, a high assurance certificate-based USB authenticator ,contains a custom smart card ASIC, the SCC650, developed on-shore by Thales TCT. This SCC650 ASIC designed to the highest security principles, implements a security architecture found in other Thales TCT certified ASICs, and is fabricated at a trusted foundry.
SafeNet eToken 5110 provides PKI based two-factor authentication for secure remote and network access, as well as support for advanced security applications, including digital signature and pre-boot authentication.
SafeNet eToken 5300 is a compact, tamper-evident USB, which creates a third factor of authentication. This next generation eToken features presence detection functionality, is FIPS 140-2 certified and is available in Micro and Mini form factors. It holds CC EAL 6+ certification at the chip boundary.
Thales’s SafeNet OTP hardware tokens provide a strong and scalable foundation for securing access to enterprise, web-based and cloud applications, and complying with privacy and security regulations.
Thales’s SafeNet hardware tokens offer rich case-branding options, and are field-programmable by the customer, enabling organizations to maintain stringent control over their own critical OTP security data.
SafeNet OTP Display Card is an OATH-compliant 2FA token designed in a convenient credit card form factor.
SafeNet OTP 110 is a cost effective OATH-compliant OTP hardware token that features waterproof casing, and enables two-factor authentication in time-sync and event-based modes.
SafeNet eToken PASS is an OATH compliant OTP hardware token that offers secure two factor authentication, in time- sync and event-based modes.
Offering an additional layer of security beyond basic OTP, the SafeNet GOLD is activated with a personal identification number (PIN), which prompts the authenticator to provide an OTP. In challenge response mode, users activate GOLD with their PIN, and then must validate a numeric challenge on their GOLD authenticator.
Offering the convenience of phone-as-a-token authentication, Thales offers PUSH OTP software authentication for tablets and mobile phones.
MobilePASS family of one-time password (OTP) software authentication solutions combines the security of proven two-factor strong authentication with the convenience, simplicity, and ease of use of OTPs generated on personal mobile devices or PCs.
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.
Discover the benefits of SafeNet IDBridge family of contact and embedded smart card readers. IDBridge products are backed by more than 30 years of security and cryptography research and development and are reliable, versatile and compliant with relevant standards and certifications for each industry.
