InAuth adds biometric authentication to its mobile security platform

April 19, 2017 - 

InAuth has formally launched InMobile Biometrics, which adds biometric authentication to InMobile’s core capabilities.

InMobile Biometrics combines fingerprint authentication technology with InAuth’s InMobile solution to deliver a device identification solution with fully integrated and secure biometric recognition.

The solution leverages a mobile device’s native fingerprint sensor to authenticate users, offering strong two-factor (2FA) security.

“This makes perfect sense for InAuth, as we are on the end point, the consumer’s device, to begin with,” said Michael Lynch, chief strategy officer at InAuth. “We secure all the interactions of the device, we provide a secure token, and our technology makes sure the device itself is secure, and then passes the native biometric results securely.

“We also never transmit the biometric itself, which ensures the consumer’s biometric is not at risk of interception or compromise. Now clients have a really locked-down device plus verification of the authorized user’s access, which provides multifactor authentication. In addition, this is a technology that is easy to implement and provides a seamless, positive customer experience.”

InMobile Biometrics is built on InAuth’s Trusted Path architecture, which prevents data compromise by providing a direct, fully secure channel through which to transmit confidential information between the customer and an organization.

The solution ensures that every communication is encrypted end-to-end, digitally signed, and safeguarded against replay attacks.

Previously reported, InAuth, ImageWare Systems, Intelligent Environments, Mitek and Trunomi partnered with Fujitsu to develop the customer onboarding technology Smart Origination.
