AdmitOne Security Joins OASIS Consortium.Innovator in Risk-Based Authentication (1) Verifying the integrity of a transmitted message. See message integrity, e-mail authentication and MAC.
(2) Verifying the identity of a user logging into a network. Software Demonstrates Commitment to Delivering an Open, Standards-Based Solution
SEATTLE -- AdmitOne Security (formerly BioPassword), the leading innovator of risk-based authentication software for preventing the fraudulent use of digital identities, today announced it has joined the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), a not-for-profit consortium that drives the development, convergence and adoption of open standards Specifications for hardware and software that are developed by a standards organization or a consortium involved in supporting a standard. Available to the public for developing compliant products, open standards imply "open systems;" that an existing component in a system can be replaced for the global information society. With this membership, AdmitOne announces support for the Security Assertion Markup Language markup language
Standard text-encoding system consisting of a set of symbols inserted in a text document to control its structure, formatting, or the relationship among its parts. The most widely used markup languages are SGML, HTML, and XML. (SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) An XML-based format from OASIS for exchanging security information for single sign-on. The "assertions" are statements from a SAML authority that authenticate a user, confirm some attribute about the individual and grant or ) to enable integration with web application servers, access management products and SaaS applications. OASIS membership will also help AdmitOne accelerate incorporation of additional standards to ensure the availability of quick-to-deploy, cost-effective authentication solutions for the Web.
"With more than 100 customers, AdmitOne Security's decision to implement SAML 2.0 in its Authentication Suite demonstrates how standards can deliver value to enterprise customers," said James Bryce James Bryce can refer to:
Founded in 1993, OASIS has more than 5,000 participants representing over 600 organizations and individual members in 100 countries. The consortium produces more Web services standards than any other organization and is dedicated to developing worldwide standards for security, business transactions, supply chain, public sector, and interoperability within and between marketplaces.
"As a company focused on delivering unmatched protection for digital identities, we share the OASIS commitment to interoperability on the Web," said Matthew Shanahan, senior vice president of marketing and strategy at AdmitOne Security. "Our membership signals AdmitOne's dedication to delivering an open, standards-based offering and to collaborating with other leading companies for the benefit of customers."
The AdmitOne Authentication Suite links users to their digital identities using multiple factors, including keystroke dynamics Keystroke dynamics, or typing dynamics, is the detailed timing information that describes exactly when each key was depressed and when it was released as a person is typing at a computer keyboard. , secure device signatures, one-time passwords (security) One-Time Password - (OTP) A security system that requires a new password every time a user authenticates themselves, thus protecting against an intruder replaying an intercepted password. OTP generates passwords using either the MD4 or MD5 hashing algorithms. and challenge-response questions. Without requiring provisioning of hardware or software, the Suite reduces risk and removes the most challenging security hurdles by combining requested authentication factors (a username The name you use to identify yourself when logging into a computer system or online service. Both a username (user ID) and a password are required. In an Internet e-mail address, the username is the left part before the @ sign. For example, KARENB is the username in karenb@mycompany. and password) with observed factors (e.g., keystroke dynamics and device signature) to provide access. The Suite assesses the risk of fraud to determine confidence level of the user's identity. If the confidence score is too low, additional authentication factors (e.g., one-time password to email or SMS (1) (Storage Management System) Software used to routinely back up and archive files. See HSM.
(2) (Systems Management Server) Systems management software from Microsoft that runs on Windows NT Server. ) can be employed based on assigned policies. The Suite delivers robust web-based administration and reporting capabilities to allow IT and security personnel to monitor and act on anomalies indicating potentially fraudulent activity.
