Solutions for Government

Increase user experience and decrease the risk of security breaches with passwordless and phishing-resistant FIDO Authentication

Thales is the leading supplier of electronic cards and passports for national identity programs worldwide, offering a comprehensive set of unique features, functions and solutions.

These official identification documents have to comply with many national and international standards, are designed for 10 years validity and include many security features preventing fraud and making it easy to verify the identity of the citizen and the genuineness of the document.

Electronic documents are equipped with a secure microcontroller and Thales embedded software solutions. They provide all the features that modern identity programs demand for travel, biometric verification, secure storage of sensitive user data, payment, qualified signatures and strong authentication to eGovernment and eServices.

The latest generation of Thales Gemalto MultiApp Operating System is Common Criteria certified at highest level and offers as part of a comprehensive applet suite an eIDAS compliant PKI solution and supports FIDO 2 (FIDO Alliance certified) for both contact and contactless uses.

The combination of the two applications on an official identity card brings distinct benefits:

The electronic ID function enables identity verification at high assurance level when a card user accesses a governmental or private eService for the first time.

Subsequently, the FIDO function provides strong and convenient 2-factor authentication for returning visits to these websites and availing services.

This combination of identification and authentication is also possible with Thales Gemalto eTravel for use in ICAO compliant biometric passports and residence permits. This dedicated OS not only facilitates easy and secure border crossing. It now supports FIDO 2 standard to enable citizens to trustfully interact with official websites to manage their travel or use related eServices.

Governments issuing Thales state-of-the-art and FIDO enabled smart ID, health and driving license cards or passports facilitate their citizens’ access to secure and trusted public and private eServices and help slashing fraud and increasing trust in the digital space.

Increase user experience and decrease the risk of security breaches with passwordless and phishing-resistant FIDO Authentication

Organizations expanding their digital transformation are moving applications and data to the cloud to enable accessibility from anywhere and decrease operating costs. As users log in to an increasing number of cloud-based applications, passwords are emerging as the primary cause of identity theft and security breaches.

To reduce such risks when your users (high privileged, VIP, frontline workers) are accessing their workstation and/or SaaS applications, Thales provides secure and robust FIDO2 certified hardware authenticators that combine multiple authentication journeys and use cases in one single device (physical and digital access, authentication and digital signature or encryption)

Thales FIDO2 security keys offer superior certification for easy compliance, excellent security, long life duration and the widest use case coverage on the market.

SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Bio smart card: This biometric smart card allows faster & easier authentication by tapping the card on the device and putting a fingerprint on the sensor. Enjoy from convenient FIDO, Biometric & contactless authentication for better MFA adoption!

The SafeNet eToken Fusion series is a set of USB tokens combining FIDO2 with PKI in a single authenticator. With this token series, you can deploy FIDO authentication to securely and easily access modern applications or Windows desktops, while retaining PKI use cases such as CBA for legacy computing resources, digital signatures and file encryption.

SafeNet IDPrime and IDCore FIDO smart cards series: organizations that already rely on PKI and Certificate based Authentication (CBA) or need to manage physical access control can now use smart cards combining PKI, FIDO, RFID and NFC to facilitate their cloud and digital transformation initiatives. Discover the widest usage coverage of the market!

SafeNet eToken FIDO USB token: An ideal cost-effective solution for enterprises looking to deploy passwordless FIDO authentication for employees (frontline workers using shared workstations, VIP, Administrators)
