IDEX ASA and Nok Nok Labs have partnered to integrate IDEX’s new line of touch based fingerprint sensors with the Nok Nok Labs S3 Authentication Suite, which will be offered to OEMs as a pre-certified solution.

By combining IDEX’s secure off-chip touch sensor solution with Nok Nok Labs robust implementation of the FIDO Universal Authentication Framework (UAF) protocol, the two companies are able to develop an ideal solution for OEMs and their customers.

The integrated biometric authentication solution has many benefits, including easy integration to dependent parties and to online services requiring security in mobile applications, lower authentication costs, significantly improved usability, and stronger security and privacy.

“Fingerprint sensors are gaining wide acceptance, especially in the mobile market leading to rapid adoption of biometric enabled mobile payment and enterprise security services worldwide,” said IDEX CEO Dr. Hemant Mardia. “With our partnership with Nok Nok Labs, IDEX is complementing our high performance sensor solution with strong online authentication to a widely-deployed and accepted industry standard. We are confident this solution is an important part of the value proposition as we sample our new sensor to our customers.”

“As consumers get increasingly comfortable with biometric authentication and the number of enabled applications continues to rise, solutions need to ensure the security of these devices and provide for simple integration with backend systems,” said Phillip Dunkelberger, president and CEO of Nok Nok Labs. “The combination of IDEX’s high performance fingerprint sensors with Nok Nok’s S3 Authentication Suite provides the users with the usability and security they need and offers organizations a simple framework to support strong authentication in their mobile and web applications.”
