Synaptics, Nok Nok Labs to simplify FIDO certified app development


Synaptics has partnered with Nok Nok Labs to provide OEMs with real-world test and development environments that combine FIDO Certified Synaptics and Nok Nok Labs solutions.

The partnership simplifies the FIDO certification process for Synaptics’ customers. By using Nok Nok Labs servers and software, Synaptics and OEMs are able to verify FIDO enabled devices in real-world authentication situations.

“The Nok Nok S3 Authentication Suite enables organizations to leverage the FIDO protocol for strong authentication, and our relationship with Synaptics helps to expand the ecosystem of FIDO Certified solutions that deliver a superior authentication experience and complete end-to-end solution,” said Phillip Dunkelberger, president and CEO of Nok Nok Labs. “The Nok Nok Labs relationship with Synaptics helps to deliver simplicity and speeds FIDO certification.”

As founding members of the Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) Alliance, Synaptics and Nok Nok Labs aim to develop open, scalable and interoperable standards that promote the adoption of mobile payments and move away from the use of passwords.

The Nok Nok Labs FIDO development and support infrastructure has been built in tandem with FIDO specifications and will continue to further strengthen Synaptics’ FIDO verification suite.

Along with the expansion of its verification suite, Synaptics can now provide end-to-end FIDO Certified support for OEMs to ensure that smartphone products are ready for deployment into the FIDO ecosystem.

“Synaptics develops hardware and software components to enable FIDO to be integrated and operate in our customer’s smartphones, tablets and laptops,” said Anthony Gioeli, vice president of marketing at Synaptics’ biometrics product division. “Adding Nok Nok Labs development and support components to our verification suite, provides assurance to our customers that their FIDO solutions have been tested to ensure compliance and interoperability.”

Previously reported, Synaptics received FIDO certification for four of its biometric products, including VFS6100 (swipe), FS4200 (small area), and VFS7500 and VFS7500S (large area), fingerprint sensor products.
