NEC server software enables advanced and secure login to websites in compliance with FIDO2
NEC announced today the availability of its enhanced NC7000-3A server software, which will enable simple, secure and swift authentication of users for access to websites and mobile applications through biometric authentication. NC7000-3A integrates with business/service provider user profiles and manages authentication activities for web services. This software is a FIDO-certified product that enables users to be authenticated without sending biometric information or any other personal information outside of a terminal, thereby reducing the risk of compromising biometric identities and passwords. Following this update, NC7000-3A server software is now certified with the FIDO2 standards established by the FIDO Alliance, which promotes international standards for “password-less” online user verification.
In addition, SDK that support a variety of authentication options, including fingerprint, face and voice recognition, are available for Android OS and iOS, enabling customers to freely select and combine multimodal authentication. This server software and SDK will improve the convenience of logging in and prevent spoofing, which will contribute to the security of web services that require identity authentication. Specifically, it will enable password-less authentication for e-commerce, digital banking, and web services provided by municipalities and government agencies. In addition, NEC is also releasing SDK-based voice authentication that accurately identifies users by extracting the unique characteristics of their voices when they speak predetermined phrases. The FIDO2 compliant server software and updated SDKs are scheduled to be available in July and August 2019 respectively.
