Fido Authentication Features

Simpler, stronger authentication with FIDO U2F, UAF, and FIDO2 solutions


Unrivalled user experience

Passwordless Solution

Eliminating passwords improves usability. Remove friction and deploy stronger, more convenient authentication with fingerprint biometrics.

Intuitive to use

DIGIPASS FX1 BIO is intuitive to use. To authenticate, users simply scan their fingerprint.

Do business, anywhere, anytime

Log on with confidence anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Different connection options

While DIGIPASS FX1 BIO can be connected to a desktop via USB, it is also Bluetooth/NFC-enabled. This means it works seamlessly with any laptop, desktop computer, tablet, or phone, to ensure maximal user adoption.

Cost-efficient solution

Reduce operational expense

FIDO eliminates the need for password resets and the associated support costs. With the reduction in password-related issues, IT support teams spend less time addressing user password-related problems.

FIDO also allows for one device to manage multiple service specific key pairs. This, simplifies user authentication management and reduces administrative costs.

Future proof security investment

The FIDO Alliance continually updates its standards and specifications to address new security challenges and evolving threats. As a result, FIDO-based solutions can adapt to and protect against emerging security risks. FIDO supports multiple authentication factors, including biometrics and PINs. This flexibility enables organizations to adapt to changing security requirements and user preferences.

Choose a scalable solution

FIDO can scale to accommodate the growth of an organization without significant increases in operational costs or complexities. This scalability ensures that security investments remain effective as organizations expand.

Easy to manage and integrate

Mitigate social engineering fraud

DIGIPASS FX1 BIO is a phishing-resistant authenticator that enables passwordless authentication. The device works in connected mode, so one-time passwords are never disclosed. As there are no passwords to phish, organizations are less vulnerable to attacks that rely on passwords, such as adversary-in-the-middle and adversary-in-the-browser attacks, account takeover, and replay attacks.

Stronger authentication with FIDO key pairs

FIDO replaces traditional username-password combinations with cryptographic key pairs which are more secure and less susceptible to common vulnerabilities like password theft, phishing, and brute-force attacks. FIDO uses a private/public key pair for authentication. This means that even if the public key is compromised, unauthorized access is virtually impossible as the private key is secure. The private key stays on the user's device, and it can only be unlocked through user action.  

FIDO's two-way verification process checks the match between the private key on the user's device and the public key on the service's server, offering a robust authentication mechanism. This method offers stronger protection compared to code-based verification methods like SMS and one-time passwords (OTPs).

Enhanced security

Works with any FIDO2-enabled service

DIGIPASS FX1 BIO supports the FIDO2 protocol and works out-of-the-box with any FIDO2-enabled service, ensuring a faster time to market.

Easy to setup

DIGIPASS FX1 BIO works in connected mode via USB, Bluetooth, and NFC. Users simply plug in the device via USB. To enable Bluetooth, the device must be paired to the user’s mobile, PC, or other device of choice.

Upon first use, you users will be asked to set a PIN code and register their fingerprint. After the PIN is set, users can log on to any FIDO2-enabled service. No additional drivers need to be installed, ensuring a frictionless and intuitive user experience and, resulting in higher user adoption.
