A major advantage of the BlueID SDK is that each service provider / operator who uses BlueID, decides for themselves which of the additional security layers that are currently available on the market shall be used. Thus, they can opt for a fast roll-out speed while at the same time incorporating hardened security for specific user groups such as staff with higher privileges and administrators. BlueID works seamlessly with:
The use of pre-shared key systems on always-on mobile devices is risky. In the event of security breaches it leads to unforseeable costs and manual updates of all objects sharing the same key. The way, in which key diversification is ensured is often intransparent.Utilizing secure elements to protect pre-shared keys properely undercuts unlimited scalability and compatibility with all mobile devices.
Modern service business models result in a growing number of users and a rising interconnectedness of devices. Communication takes place more and more between a rising number of different systems. For efficient permission management in a scenario like that, for easy and fast identity creation and adaption, and for protecting the integrity of each single permission, the concept of identity management must be thought of differently. A Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) based on Asymmetric cryptography offers an enormous potential in a situation like that. Today, PKI is in use mostly in high-security banking and governmental environments. The challenges of PKI lie in:
- The complexity of the security processes
- The long encryption key lengths & hence the slow execution speed
Our long standing research and development has leveraged these challenges.
The BlueID software technology
BlueID consists of software packages for smartphones and control modules as well as the BlueID Trust Center service, which is connected to your backend or IAM system using standard APIs. You can license BlueID for use in your services.
