SecureKey Technologies Inc. Key Developments

Securekey Technologies Inc. and Oberthur Technologies to Collaborate on GSMA Mobile Connect-Based Solutions

SecureKey Technologies Inc. and Oberthur Technologies announced their collaboration to bring to market a range of solutions compliant with the GSMA-led Mobile Connect initiative which provides secure access and authentication for online services. Based on SecureKey's briidge.net(TM) Connect cloud-based digital identity management platform and leveraging OT's long standing expertise in secure element-based security, these solutions allow mobile operators to provide consumers with secure smart phone-based authentication solutions across the broadest range of devices in the market, eliminating the need for usernames and passwords when accessing online services. The solution increases convenience, while reducing fraud and risk for online services for both service providers and consumers. As online services proliferate, in industries such as financial services, government and healthcare, consumers are often forced to use multiple identities and passwords to access services. This accumulation of log-in credentials represents a burden to consumers and also opens them to critical security and privacy vulnerabilities. Mobile Connect brings together an ecosystem of trusted mobile operators and service providers to provide consumers with the ability to use their mobile phone for managing their access to online services, giving them greater control and a means of access that is more secure and convenient.

Royal Canadian Mint Chooses Securekey Technologies Inc.'s briidge.net Connect Platform to Authenticate Mintchip Digital Currency Consumers

SecureKey Technologies Inc. announced that its briidge.net Connect Platform has been chosen by the Royal Canadian Mint to provide device-based multi-factor user authentication for its new MintChip cloud-based digital currency. The briidge.net Connect Mobile SDK built into the MintChip consumer mobile app, combined with the briidge.net Connect service, will enable consumers to make cash-like MintChip payments using their smartphones and other mobile devices more conveniently and securely than current contactless payment card transactions. The briidge.net Connect Mobile SDK embedded in the mobile app allows the MintChip system to positively identify the mobile device connecting to the consumer cloud account through a unique device ID. Prior to a payment transaction, the software authenticates the user by their 4-digit QuickCode PIN. This QuickCode is like a debit or credit card PIN, but instead of being limited for use with just one card, the QuickCode can be easily extended across the user's preferred devices for added convenience. The briidge.net Connect service is easily adaptable to all forms of existing and emerging hardware-based security and can be applied to laptops, desktop PCs, mobile devices and even wearables to support payment of purchases made online and in-store. Developed by the Royal Canadian Mint, MintChip is a secure protocol for holding and transferring digital value. MintChip has many of the attributes of real cash: its transactions are instant, irrevocable, easy and inexpensive for both consumers and retailers. And unlike other digital currencies, MintChip value is denominated in Canadian dollars. The MintChip technology can be also easily adapted for use with any recognized national currency. SecureKey briidge.net Connect is a cloud-based multi-factor authentication service platform providing the strongest level of security available today, while delivering a simple user experience. Through the briidge.net Connect Mobile SDK for mobile applications, users can enroll their devices with the briidge.net Connect service as strong 'what user have' factors for authentication. The platform is designed to support all in-market devices today, enabling strong security across all delivery channels.
