VASCO’s DIGIPASS offering for Intel IPT replaces the use of static passwords by dynamic one-time passwords (OTP). The dynamic password is user specific and only valid for a limited period of time. Authentication technology protects against online transaction fraud, data and identity theft.
The 2nd Generation Intel Core processor platforms will support a VASCO applet. When an end-user wants to log-on securely to a website using DIGIPASS, the applet on the chip will send the OTP for validation. The server will request validation from VASCO’s back-end authentication software, which will send the response to the server of the application service provider, who will grant access to the end-user. The Intel IPT technology works seamlessly with VASCO’s range of authentication server software, VACMAN and IDENTIKEY, as well as with DIGIPASS as a Service, VASCO’s cloud-based authentication platform.
DIGIPASS for Intel® IPT allows customers to deploy two-factor (OTP) authentication without the need to roll-out authentication hardware or software to the end-user. Two-factor authentication is present on laptops or PCs based on the 2nd Generation Intel Core processor platforms. End-users only need to activate the authentication capability online.
DIGIPASS® for Intel IPT is suited for use by online application providers wanting to add a second authentication layer to the DIGIPASS hardware based authentication they already use by binding a specific user to a specific PC. Its use is manifold: It can be used by insurance and healthcare agencies to protect client or patient confidentiality, by corporations to protect e-mail and network traffic, or help providers of online subscription-based service to preserve their revenue stream.
