Introducing StarSign®: scalable solutions for different security needs

It’s happening everywhere. Enterprises are bringing their business processes and transactions online with cloud and mobile services. Yet as simple as it may seem, this trend holds some of the biggest challenges. Digital often implies a constant trade-off between fast and easy authentication systems on the one hand, and robust and secure access management om the other. G+D’s StarSign® solutions, based on standards from the FIDO Alliance, bring these two seemingly contrary positions together. They make online security simpler and easier to use while providing stronger protection and reducing risks for the enterprise.

Authentication with a FIDO solution means replacing password-only logins with secure and fast login for websites and apps alike.
Our StarSign® FIDO solutions offer a wide variety of options that can be tailored to your specific needs. What they have in common is that they are easy to implement and flexible. Once they are integrated into your environment, you will enormously improve user experience and benefit from cost efficiencies, such as lower support costs.

Our StarSign FIDO-standard-based solutions turn that around and make online security a simpler and better user experience while providing stronger security and reducing risks for the enterprise.

Introducing the StarSign® FIDO Mobile Authentication Server

Our StarSign® FIDO Mobile Authentication Server enables seamless, real-time, frictionless authentication according to the FIDO UAF, FIDO2, and FIDO U2F specifications. Employees, customers, and end users benefit through compliant, convenient, and secure access to their digital systems and services. Users of both desktop and mobile environments can chose among a variety of authentication factors for multi-factor authentication (MFA) – from hardware and software tokens and solutions to biometrics. The combination of convenience, security, compliance, and flexibility is key to the success of StarSign® FIDO Mobile Authentication.

The main advantages of StarSign® FIDO Mobile Authentication Server are:

  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) server covering both enterprise- and consumer-focused use cases

  • Supported for the FIDO UAF, FIDO U2F, and FIDO2 protocols
  • No need for any PKI or complex infrastructure
  • Straightforward integration into your existing backend environment via REST API and SAML2, and hosting on any Java EE supporting environment
  • Thanks to multi-tenancy support, largely scalable and deployable in HA redundant clusters
  • PSD2 compliant and Common Criteria certified
