Take Control of Your FIDO Authenticators

As you may know, the recent Versasec integration with Entrust IDaaS provides many security advantages for enterprises looking to take control of their FIDO authenticators in their organizations. Let’s take a closer look at how this integration can empower companies.

Broadly acknowledged, traditional passwords fall short in terms of security. FIDO presents a straightforward and effective solution to address this vulnerability. Versasec products provide access to the latest technologies integrated and ready for the enterprise.

As FIDO grows, it presents security challenges to organizations around the management of FIDO devices. Versasec is proactively solving these issues as we work closely with some of the largest adopters of this technology today.

Today, enterprise leaders who want to adopt FIDO authentication for their organization rely on employees managing their FIDO security keys or smartcards. This approach pushes security and protocols aside, creating vulnerabilities and errors without any visibility from the organization.

A better way

However, with Versasec’s integration with leading Identity Providers (IdPs), our latest being Entrust IDaaS, and our advanced credential management capabilities, organizations can welcome FIDO enterprise management. As a result, securely manage and orchestrate FIDO security keys and FIDO smart cards. Versasec provides end-to-end orchestration of phishing-resistant credentials, including FIDO credentials. As a result, employees can authenticate to registered sites, avoiding authentication to any look-alike sites and decreasing phishing risks.

In the end, once the employee or contractor receives their assigned FIDO credential, they can log in, register to applications and sites, and enjoy single sign-on! There is nothing left to chance but seamlessly orchestrated for a superior user experience for the employees, administrators, and operators.

Take Control of Your FIDO Authenticators

In the video above, we demo:

  • Issuance of a FIDO credential using the vSEC:CMS Agent application on behalf of the user (employee) with enrollment to Entrust IDaaS.
  • Once issued in the Agent application, the device is turned over to the user.
  • Now, the user with the vSEC:CMS User application unblocks the credential and sets a FIDO PIN. The credential is now active.
  • Then, the user logs in to the IDaaS portal to showcase the usage of the FIDO authenticator.
  • Finally, the revocation of the credential: if you then need to revoke the credential, for whatever reason, the credential will be revoked on the IdP.
