Infineon reports to securely boast and simplify new solutions online authentication based on the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) open standard. The German semiconductor giant claims that its FIDO Certified USB Token reference design has enabled GOTrust Technology (Go-Trust) to validate their U2F (Universal 2nd Factor) authenticator at the U2F interoperability testing: GOTrust obtained the certification in one month – one third of the time it would require without Infineon’s reference design.
Infineon’s FIDO Certified USB Token reference design and proven security controllers are known to be used by manufacturers of FIDO authentication devices. The U2F reference design has been tested with Google/Gmail and other U2F reference servers used in the interoperability tests. The company provides all source codes and documentation pertaining to U2F thus freeing the developer to work on the additional functionalities that they require for the U2F token.
The reference designs and security controllers include:
- Application Note: FIDO certified USB Token U2F (Universal 2nd Factor) Authenticator based on the SLE 78 security controller
- FIDO certified NFC U2F (Universal 2nd Factor) Authenticator based on the SLE 78 security controller
- First FIDO pre-release interoperability proven BLE U2F Authenticator reference based on OPTIGA™ Trust P security controller
- Infineon TPMs compliant with UAF Authenticator solutions
- Customer Solution: µSD form factor UAF (Universal Authentication Framework) Authenticator based on the SLE 97144 security controller
As FIDO’s founding and Board member and a leading supplier of secured controller technologies protecting personal identity and computer data, Infineon is known to actively contribute to the development of FIDO specifications and has released a number of products compliant with the standards.
Infineon will demonstrate GOTrust FIDO Ready U2F authenticator (GO-2Factor) at the DigiTimes Technology Forum on May 3, 2016, B3F, The Westin Hotel, in Taipei, under the theme “FinTech – Challenges & Response to a new financial service model”.
