Logging into devices, networks and cloud services is an everyday part of modern work. It⁹s also a risk factor and a potential inconvenience, because standard login methods such as entering passwords are not optimized for either ease of use or security.


 

Passwordless reject IconYour company should reject the legacy login model and begin its move toward a passwordless era as soon as possible. This journey can start with the selection of new authentication factors.



SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication goes beyond traditional passwords using
asymmetric cryptography

Passwords come with drawbacks, in terms of both security and convenience. SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication gets aroundPasswords come with drawbacks, in terms of both security and convenience. SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication gets aroundthese disadvantages with a different kind of methodology: asymmetric cryptography.

How asymmetric cryptography works: The login process uses two keys, one public, stored by the site or service being logged into, and the other private and held only on the user⁹s chosen security key device.

The service sends a nonce to the device for identity
verification and the user unlocks access to the private key with a local gesture such as a biometric scan or entering a PIN. Then, the private key signs the nonce, sends that signal back to the service and the login verification is complete.
 




Using this system overcomes the security risks that come with lost, hacked or reused passwords, as well as the countless employee hours lost to managing and retrieving passwords.

SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication enables convenient login processes with extra security

When using a standard two-factor or passwordless login system, employees need to have an external token, an app on a mobile device or some other type of extra item for verification. SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication supports identification via PIN backed by a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip and unique to a device.

There is no need to select a new PIN for every website or service a user logs into, and logging in without the device is impossible, oiling attackers⁹ attempts to compromise accounts protected with this methodology. Someone trying to break into the system would need to steal both the device and the PIN, and the device locks after too many failed entries for security against brute-force PIN theft.




 

 

SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication supports top systems and services, with more being added constantly

Support is expanding for asymmetric cryptography login methods. Currently, there are many solutions that support SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication as one factor in twofactor authentication, with others that allow single sign-on via asymmetric cryptography.

Microsoft services including Office 365, Windows login and VPN access via Microsoft Active Directory are compatible with single sign-on, making SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication your employees⁹ quick and easy way to log into these systems.

Common software-as-a-service applications such as Salesforce support asymmetric cryptography as one of the factors in a two-factor authentication login process. The presence of this more secure credential means users don⁹t have to put so much security importance on their passwords.

Organizations of all kinds can get security and convenience benefits from SecureDoc Passwordless Authentication

The more intensive the security requirements facing an organization are, the better the use case that business has for advanced asymmetric cryptography authentication methods.

Fields including government, health care and finance have the highest levels of demand for advanced login methods that go beyond standard passwords, as these sectors face the greatest risks regarding data loss and attacks. When even one compromised password can cause untold losses, including both fines and reputation damage, it makes sense to deemphasize passwords as a login method.

Even beyond the highest-risk sectors, virtually every business today maintains protected information on customers, employees and intellectual property. Protecting this content with new authentication methods, without sacrificing convenience and efficiency, is a top reason to seek out new authentication technologies.
