MUNICH and SAN FRANCISCO--23 Apr--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Infineon Technologies demonstrated its FIDO2 reference design as an authentication token for logging on to the Azure Active Directory joined device. FIDO2, based on specifications developed by the FIDO (Fast Identity Online) Alliance, provides a framework for easy-to-use authentication. It allows protection from being phished, replayed or revealed through server breach attacks.

Infineon, a co-founder of the FIDO Alliance, is the first supplier of hardware-based security chips to publicly demonstrate a reference design for FIDO2. The design uses the Infineon SLE 78 security controller based on the security certified SLE 78 chip: the only single chip solution on the market that integrates a USB and NFC interface for use in both USB and USB/NFC token designs. The security controller is equipped with Infineon Integrity Guard, which features robust digital mechanisms to protect secret data, highly sophisticated error detection and countermeasures against chip-level attacks.

"Windows Hello is paving the way towards a password-less future, and today we are pleased to introduce Windows Hello security keys," said Dave Bossio, Group Program Manager at Microsoft. "Our collaboration with Infineon allows these FIDO2 based security keys to securely roam user credentials using the same trusted technology that Infineon has been delivering to Windows devices for well over a decade."

Inadequate password protection is a factor in the majority of attack-related data breaches across both business and consumer computing environments. The FIDO authentication ecosystem helps web service providers and corporations meet the challenge of secured authentication.
