E-Banking Authentication with the Ergonomics Authentication Server (EAS)

Reliable and Cost-Effective Authentication of E- and M-Banking Users

A major Swiss bank uses the Ergonomics Authentication Server (EAS) for reliable identification of e-banking and m-banking users. In the current configuration, photoTAN (colored barcode) and M-TAN (SMS password) are implemented. The technology used in the SMS scenario works without caching sent passwords, thus eliminating one of the potential attack vectors.

The solution also supports transaction verification with both methods. The financial institution identifies critical or unusual transactions, and asks the customer for an extra confirmation. Critical information, such as amount and destination account are sent to the photoTAN app or via SMS to the customer’s mobile device for approval – attacks that manipulate target account or amount can be detected.

The EAS also supports other technologies for strong authentication and transaction verification, which are not yet used in the current implementation. The EAS is available to all financial institutions as a scalable, flexible and proven solution for securing E-Banking transactions.

Our latest cooperation with the BehavioSec’s Behavioral Biometrics Platform enhances security by invisibly authenticating individuals according to unique online behaviors nearly impossible to impersonate with malicious code, like how a mobile device is held in the hand, touchscreen inputs, cursor and mouse movements and physical time and location data. Integrating with risk scoring systems, BehavioSec’s real-time analysis of these and other metrics power a new line of defense blocking suspicious activities or triggering additional monitoring - without impacting productivity and the user experience.

Anyone selling software protects their products, internal designs and customers with digital certificates - as well as the value of their own brand. Indirectly, this also boost sales: Customers tend to download and install software more frequently, when a trusted manufacturer certificate is displayed. Modern operating systems (Windows and Mac) also explicitly warn against the installation of software without or with insufficiently verified certificates. End users and professional developers appreciate trusted certificates that promise the authenticity of applications.
