Swiss bank uses mIdentity for secure authentication

Kobil Systems : 10 November, 2009  (Application Story)
Online banking customers at Hypothekarbank Lenzburg in Switzerland rely on mIDentity technology from Kobil for secure e-banking transactions
Kobil Systems, a provider of mobile IT security solutions, is now cooperating with the Hypothekarbank Lenzburg (HBL). The bank offers its customers online banking as well as secure data signature and transaction signature services (in preparation). The goal of the cooperation is to equip all e-banking customers of HBL with Kobil mIDentity, today's most secure and most convenient mobile e-banking solution.

Until now, HBL has been relying on standard installable PKI tokens. Consequently, the advantages of the mIDentity technology are obvious: No more CD rollouts are necessary for the bank and no more installation of software is necessary for the bank's customers. All updates to the device are conducted through a central Kobil server, which is also hosted by the bank. The USB-based mIDentity device supports the three most common operating systems Windows, Linux and Mac.

It is of great importance to the bank that as many customers as possible use the HBL e-banking system and, while doing so, are protected against possible attacks. Marianne Wildi, Interim Chairwoman of the Executive Board at HBL, gives the following reasons for the bank's decision:

"We chose the Kobil mIDentity solution because it ensures highest protection against attacks in e-banking at all times, and because it is a field-proven technology. It offers highest user convenience because it works without any installation under Windows, Mac and Linux. Additionally, the solution is an updateable system, which adapts to future challenges in an efficient way, and it integrates smoothly into our own PKI infrastructure."

Kobil's CEO Ismet Koyun is pleased to see that his goal to set trends and ensure security in e-banking finds more and more satisfied customers. "At Kobil, we are very proud to have won yet another customer who relies on our proven mIDentity technology. HBL has an excellent reputation in Switzerland. This shows that the Swiss banks are increasingly leading the way in Europe when it comes to security in online banking without having to give up convenience and ease of use.
