Intel IPT Can Now Have Digipass Embedded

Vasco : 11 February, 2011  (Application Story)
Vasco Digipass can now be used as an embedded token in Intel's Identity Protection Technology for strong authentication
Vasco’s Digipass authentication technology can now utilize the embedded token of Intel Identity Protection Technology (Intel IPT). This will allow customers to easily deploy two-factor authentication without the need to roll-out software or hardware devices to end-users. This collaboration results in the availability of market-leading authentication available on select 2nd Generation Intel Core processor-based PCs.¹

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 to an Intel-based server. 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.

“We are convinced that the option of embedding authentication technology on the majority of the world’s desktop and laptop computers will open new market opportunities for authentication. The authentication technology on Intel IPT is the enabler for multi-application authentication,” says Jan Valcke, President and COO at Vasco Data Security.

”The integration of Digipass authentication capability with Intel IPT is the result of intensive teamwork between both our engineering departments,” said George Thangadurai, general manager of PC client services at Intel. “With online fraud, credential and data theft continuously on the rise, the need for more secure log-on procedures and e-signatures is only growing, especially in the online consumer sector. We are convinced this approach makes authentication easier and more straightforward for end users.”
