Cloud based digital signing provides secure authentication

Avoco Secure : 04 November, 2009  (New Product)
The I-Card cloud based information card selector and signer provides secure web content signing capability
Avoco Secure has launched the first Information Card Cloud Selector and I-Card Cloud signer, which both have a zero desktop install, so they work with any browser installed on any device, anywhere. They offer customers enhanced security including anti-phishing, as well as a user friendly experience and the ability to easily sign web content like mortgage application forms.

Avoco Secure will give the first public demonstration of these capabilities at the OpenID Summit today.

The I-Cloud signer can be used with Information Cards as well as conventional digital certificates and many other forms of digital identity The demonstration will cover using the Avoco IDP, Avoco cloud services, and applying access control and rights management controls to documents using an Information Card and secure2trust.

'Avoco Secure's achievements are game-changing: an I-Card selector in the Cloud truly removes one of the key barriers to adoption of Information Cards and makes the power of interoperable digital identity credentials available to a much wider audience,' said Drummond Reed, Executive Director of the Information Card Foundation. 'Avoco's new technology will enable I-Cards to be used for digital signing and document access control applications that previously could only be handled complex digital certificate solutions. These new techniques are not only much simpler than digital certificates, but are browser and device independent.'

'Avoco Secure's 'shared secret' authentication is a highly innovative solution which addresses the need for easy-to-use and user-centric security. It looks like a viable potential solution for mass-market global finance related transactions,' said Randle Cowcher, Director at Aicoute Consulting and former Head of Information Security at the Royal Bank of Scotland. 'The ability to take a graphic image, like a photograph, as a shared secret combined invisibly to the user security element (such as transient session keys) and the demonstrable signing of digital claims builds on the fact that humans have a hard-wired retinal memory for, and an ability to interact with images that is better than for most alpha-numeric characters'.

I-Cloud Card Selector is the world's first fully cloud-based Information Card selector, offering the ability to access your Information Card identities no matter which operating system, browser, computer of mobile device you are using. It truly gives anywhere, anytime, secured accessibility.
