EMBED DIGITAL IDENTITY INTO YOUR PLATFORM AND SERVICE OFFERINGS

As organisations and governments move to embrace cloud and digital service delivery, digital identity is becoming an important enabler in the increasingly open and always-on world of service provision.

Platform providers and service providers need to ensure that services are accessed by known individuals and devices and that transactions and operations carried out as part of the service are protected against impersonation, data manipulation or data breach.

The most effective ways to protect services against the number one cause of data breach is to replace passwords with digital identities for people and devices.

Strongest form of digital identity

The strongest form of a digital identity comprises a PKI certificate issued to a secure device, as recognised by standards such as US FIPS 201 and eIDAS.  A secure device protects a private key which cannot be copied or stolen and a digital certificate issue by a trusted authority enables the identity to be cryptographically verified by a relying party.

In addition to securely authenticating a person or device, digital identities can be used to encrypt sensitive information both at rest and in transit, ensure data has not been tampered with and provides digital signatures for non-repudiation of transactions.

For person identity, the private key can be protected by a second factor such as a PIN, fingerprint or facial recognition, ensuring strong authentication is balanced with convenience, essential for service providers wishing to offer consumers a frictionless experience.

Many consumer devices such as smartphones and IoT devices such as IP cameras, set top boxes and industrial sensors already provide the ability to securely store and use digital identities, but to deploy keys and certificates at scale, service providers need an efficient way to issue and manage their lifecycle that integrates seamlessly with the technology and business processes the overall solution relies upon.

In addition to offering MyID as a market-leading credential management commercial off-the-shelf product, Intercede supplies MyID as a platform, providing service providers with a range of software and service tools enabling them to embed digital identity into their own solutions.
