Codeless Solution Offers Phishing-Resistant Authenticators, Identity Verification, and Centralized Identity Management for the U.S. Federal Government
DENVER, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Ping identity (NYSE: PING), the intelligent identity solution for the enterprise, Yubicothe leading provider of hardware authentication security keys, and Access pointa leading credential management platform, has partnered on a common solution that enables phishing-resistant FIDO2 Derived Credentials (DFCs), along with identity verification and centralized identity management.
“Phishing-resistant MFA is an immediate priority for businesses and is now a specific requirement for the US government,” said Andre Durand, CEO and Founder of Ping Identity. “By incorporating federation and enterprise-grade access controls into this joint solution, organizations can easily use derived FIDO2 credentials to improve the security of virtually any individual or asset, regardless of location.”
The standards-based solution works off-the-shelf with no custom coding required, including:
The solution enables organizations to establish and prove organizational attestation of FIDO2 hardware tokens, enabling them to better protect against multi-factor authentication (MFA) exploits.
By enabling organizational attestation with FIDO2 security keys, the solution applies the Zero Trust concept of “trust nothing, verify everything” to FIDO2-based MFA authentication. This minimizes the risk of cyber attackers using external credentials to break into a corporate network – a common vulnerabilitythere known to be exploited by nation-state threat actors.
“Proof of possession is not enough,” said Eric Hildre, president of EntryPoint, Inc. “With the addition of our identity binding capabilities, organizations can now confirm that FIDO2-derived credentials are being used by the intended user and not a malicious actor.”
“Recently, OMB Memo M-22-09 was released citing FIDO2 and WebAuthn, as well as PIV, as approved phishing-resistant credentials that meet EO requirements,” said Jeff Frederick, Director, Solutions Engineering at Yubico. “This partnership supports these government regulations and enables agencies to trust and verify that FIDO2 security keys in their environment can only come from their authorized supply chain, and nowhere else.”
