Infineon Technologies AG today realized its pioneering vision with hardware-based security practices supporting the just released FIDO 1.0 specifications. FIDO defines an open standard for implementation of simple and powerful multi-factor authentication of computing devices that access Internet-based services, private networks and cloud applications. With FIDO authenticators, internet users now can more securely and easily log on to their online accounts using a password combined with a USB key or a local security token.

As a founding member of the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance which is supported by Alibaba, Google, Samsung, and other major industry players, Infineon is an active contributor to development of the new specifications. Infineon is one of the first suppliers of security chips and FIDO Ready™ authenticator reference designs for secured devices, including a Google Security Key compatible USB token and the Infineon OPTIGA TM TPM (Trusted Platform Module) solution. Infineon reference designs speed time-to-market of solutions that allow enterprise and individual end-users to reduce the complexity of password-based log-on to services, and strengthen protection against unauthorized access.

“The FIDO Alliance specifications define an authentication method that is more secure and provides a better user experience than passwords alone,” said Joerg Borchert, vice president of the chip card and security division at Infineon Technologies North America. “It is a remarkable achievement that the vision shared between Infineon and other founding members is now available as an open standard, supported by a broad and growing ecosystem of industry leaders that recognize the value of making strong, secure user authentication available to any user, using any connected device. The new standard provides extraordinary benefits and strong industry interest; therefore, we are confident to see a broad adoption for years to come. Infineon is proud to be a key enabler in this new technology.”

As a leading supplier of secured controller technologies used to protect personal identity and computer data, Infineon offers a wide portfolio of products paired with unsurpassed expertise in the implementation of hardware-based security solutions. Detailed information about the company’s offerings in multiple security device categories can be found at infineon.com/FIDO.

Availability of Infineon FIDO Security Solutions
Infineon currently offers two reference designs to enable fast and easy implementation of the FIDO standard for authentication tokens as well as implementation experience with customer specific design for multiple authenticator form factors. Infineon has passed FIDO Ready testing on the following designs:

• Reference Design: USB Token U2F (Universal 2 nd Factor) Authenticator based on the SLE 78 security controller;
• Reference Design: TPM form factor UAF Authenticator Reference based on the SLB 9660 security controller;
• Custom Solution: µSD form factor UAF (Universal Authentication Framework) Authenticator based on the SLE 97144 security controller.

About The FIDO Alliance

The FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance was formed in July 2012 to address the lack of interoperability among strong authentication technologies, and remedy the problems users face with creating and remembering multiple usernames and passwords.
