Flexible and fast security solutions

Infineon Technologies is to present the SECORA ID with FIDO for secured authentication to online portals with user-friendly tokens at this year's Trustech in Paris.

The security solution has been designed to actively protect devices from tampering and fraud.

Based on FIDO, Infineon's latest addition to the SECORA ID portfolio is intended to make it easier to enhance security of digital identities. The solution utilises 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 users 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. Available both as a standalone product as well as in combination with the eMRTD applet, it covers all markets - consumer, enterprise and eGov applications.

Across 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, 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 to be shown at Trustech will show 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.

The SECORA Pay family offers customised Java Card-based solutions for fast and agile implementation in payment card and innovative form factors. The product family is based on a SOLID FLASH chip platform from Infineon and supports the latest EMV applets. To expand the offering, a new SECORA Pay portfolio based on the latest 40nm technology platform has been added to the family. The solutions are available in three version to support efficient card production for different use cases:

  • SECORA Pay S: ready-to-go, off-the-shelf, optimised EMV solutions with reference approvals from major global payment schemes (VISA, Mastercard, Discover and American Express) as well as personalization scripting support
  • SECORA Pay X: an enablement platform giving customers flexibility to support EMV-based payment schemes and local content in combination with Infineon’s ready-to-use reference solutions
  • SECORA Pay W: turnkey EMV solutions based on innovative packaging technologies to support non-connected, passive wearables or payment accessories.
