AffirmID Auth

A Security First Authenticator App
Some things in business are a given and the loss of an authenticator app or token is one of them that only AffirmID Auth can prevent from becoming a calamity.
Statistically speaking, 4.3 percent of company-issued phones and tokens go missing every year, BYOD device loss is somewhat higher. With each lost authenticator there’s only a button tap standing in the way of ransomware or cyberattack. For businesses large and small, this kind of loss could spell disaster potentially affecting millions. Why take that unnecessary risk?
AffirmID Auth is not just another authenticator, it is the only authenticator to limit access to its original user and it does so without credentials. Instead, original user recognition from their behavioral traits means prevention of app access by any other person.

Nice to meet you

I’m Rick and I’m pleased to introduce AffirmID Auth. The intent of authentication is to “prove an assertion of identity”. However, authenticators no mater cost, form, or brand fall short by only delivering an “assertion of identity”, no matter who has possession at the time. AffirmID Auth is different, it “proves identity” as part of making an “assertion of identity”. It is the only app to do so while providing standards compliant passive and active authenticators.

Endpoints are the Gateway for Ransomware and Cyber Attacks

Endpoint Security is Imperative

Endpoints are points of access to the corporate security zone where all business data are safe. Nothing gets into the security zone without passing through an endpoint, equally true for both on premise networks and cloud platforms. Of course remote user login is an endpoint. So too is Virtual Private Network (VPN), Remote Desktop connection (RDP), File Transfer Protocol (FTP or SFTP), and Secure Shell access (SSH).

A Ransomware and Security Solution for Organizations Big and Small

Key Benefits

Affirmation of User Identity

Never has an authenticator of any type actually “affirmed” the user’s identity. AffirmID Auth adds this new dynamic to the authentication process thereby enhancing its accuracy and security.

NIST Compliant MFA

AffirmID Auth is unique in its meeting NIST recommendations for multi-factor authenticator by delivering: your phone as something you have; BioPIN as  something you know; and up to ten of your behavioral human traits as something you are.

Multifaceted

AffirmID brings order where chaos reigns by supporting both OTP and cryptographic protocols, both FIDO2 and WebAuthn standards, both TOTP and HOTP one-time-passcode formats, and both local and Bluetooth protocols with NFC and Push in the works. So, rather than a phone and pocket full of tokens consider AffirmID Auth, the single solution to multiple needs.

Security First

With Security First as our motto, it makes sense the internals of AffirmID Auth are likewise secure. Internally no data is at rest without encryption. Encryption keys and secrets are stored safely in the Security Element of the phone. No user data, biometric data, or sensor samples are ever stored.

Why AffirmID is Right for Your Organization!

affirm-id-suitability-to-purpose

Suitability to Purpose!

Suitability

Does the authenticator prevent attacks using leveraged credentials? Does it prevent use if lost or stolen? Does it foreclose account takeover? Does it ensure use by only the designated user? AffirmID Auth does so and more.

Trustworthiness

Assured authentication of a singular person from recognition provided by an AI system considering the biometrics of several human behavioral traits.

Convenience

A professionally designed app presenting an intuitive non-technical user interface on ubiquitous smartphones well suited for BYOD authentication.

Mature solution

A solution evolved over 5 years of research and development with the objective to bring affirmed personal identification to authentication and other identity-centric applications.

Privacy protection

Personal identification data is discarded immediately following input to an AI process while other private data are securely stored locally.

Fulfillment

Provides “strong authentication” as defined by NIST, European Central Bank, and FIDO Alliance.

Biometric Identificaiton

Behavioral biometrics

Sensors of your phone detect the way you do the things you do thereby becoming the biometrics of your behavioral human traits. These are unique and not replicated by any other person.

Local biometric identification

With the aid of artificial intelligence, locally captured behavioral biometrics are used to learn to recognize you.

Identity recognition

Artificial intelligence processing newly acquired behavioral biometrics to project identity of the person in possession. Identity affirmed if it is you.

The BioPIN

BioPIN supplies the “something you know” component of multi-factor-authentication with a major reliance on the biometrics of BioPIN entry.
