VASCO and Intel have started a collaboration that will enable VASCO’s DIGIPASS authentication technology to now utilize the embedded token of Intel Identity Protection Technology.
The new offering will allow customers to deploy two-factor authentication without the need to roll-out software or hardware devices to end-users. VASCO’s DISIPASS for the Intel Identity Protection Technology replaces the use of static passwords with dynamic one-time passwords that are user specific and only valid for a limited period of time.
The 2nd Generation Intel Core processor platforms will support a VASCO applet. When an end-user wants to log-on securely to a Web site using DIGIPASS, the applet on the chip will send the one-time password for validation. The server will request validation from VASCO’s back-end authentication software, which will then send the response to the server of the application service provider, who will grant access to the end-user.
The Intel Identity Protection Technology also works with VASCO’s authentication server software, VACMAN and IDENTIKEY, as well as with DIGIPASS as a Service, VASCO’s cloud-based authentication platform.
