Device manufacturers are looking to ensure that their solutions continue to be relevant to consumers. Authentication is an ”ignition key” for delivering a range of local and online services, as well as personalizing a device to meet a user’s specific requirements. Consumers are looking to access online services via smartphones and tablets, more so than desktop computers. Add to that the potential of wearable technology and other connected devices, and device manufacturers must ensure that their hardware meets ever changing requirements.

The Nok Nok™ S3 Authentication Suite offers significant value to device manufacturers. By integrating the Nok Nok Multifactor Authentication Client (MFAC) into their offerings, Device Manufacturers are able to provide a significantly higher level of security to their customers. Key benefits include:

  • Relevance of offering - Through the addition of MFAC, they can provide a wide range of different authentication experiences – such as Fingerprint, Voice, and Facial recognition.
  • Leverage existing investment – The Nok Nok solution can take advantage of the presence of TPM’s, SE’s and TEE’s, therefore delivering a more secure authentication experience at little or no additional cost.
  • Additional service opportunities – device manufacturers can provide online authentication services for their customers through the addition of the Nok Nok Authentication Server.

An area of significant investment for device manufacturers has been the distribution of hardware-based security. This has been present across the PC OEM world for many years with the Trusted Platform Modules (TPM), and is now available on smartphones and tablets via Secure Elements (SE) and Trusted Execution Environments (TEE). These security features offer increased assurance through their ability to create and store cryptographic materials in malware-resistant hardware components. These features can now be more fully utilized with the use of Nok Nok technology.
