Introduction for Solutions for Governments

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

We believe in a better, safer, and more sustainable world where everyone has access to a secure and trusted identity, which is a vital component of a well-functioning society. That’s why improving security, slashing ID fraud and identity theft, and creating an infrastructure of trust for new online services are also high on every government’s agenda.

We support this vision by providing identity and biometric solutions to governments, public authorities and private entities in the fields of civil identity and public security. And we deliver highly secure documents with embedded software solutions, such as passports, ID cards, drivers’ licenses or health cards, that are at the heart of national identity schemes and that provide secure and convenient access to eGovernment and private eServices.


Introduction for Solutions for Financial Institutions

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

The rapid evolution of financial services is being driven by regulatory changes, digital transformation, and the arrival of new fintech players.

We help more than 3,000 financial institutions, retailers and other players meet this challenge with a wide range of software and services for digital banking and payment services.

This includes strong identity verification for enrolling new customers, payment data encryption, and multiple authentication schemes, including biometrics, to access digital banking services.


Introduction for Solutions for Enterprises

Improve 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, no mobile phones) are accessing their workstation and/or SaaS applications, Thales provides FIDO passwordless authentication using multi factor-authentication hardware devices.

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.
