Nok Nok Labs' S3 Authentication Suite unifies FIDO UAF and U2F protocols across biometrics solutions, including voice.
Nok Nok Labs, a provider of customer authentication solutions and a founding member of the FIDO Alliance, has launched the Premium Edition of its Nok Nok S3 Authentication Suite (S3 Suite), supporting existing and emerging methods of biometric authentication, such as fingerprint, iris, and voice.
Nok Nok Labs designed the FIDO protocol as a dynamic architecture that could adapt to modern security and customer needs. With this new release, Nok Nok Labs supports the next generation of FIDO capability.
"Nok Nok Labs recognized the need for a universal FIDO Server that supports any FIDO authenticator or protocol in the market, to provide more flexibility to our customers," said Phillip Dunkelberger, president and CEO of Nok Nok Labs, in a statement. "With this announcement, Nok Nok Labs continues its FIDO leadership as well as demonstrates our ability to innovate and expand beyond the underlying FIDO technology."
This newest version of the NNL S3 Suite will include a next-generation FIDO Server, which enables organizations to maximize their secure authentication posture with both FIDO UAF and U2F capabilities for all of their users. With FIDO UAF, users have strong multifactor authentication support, and with FIDO U2F, users can strengthen password-based authentication with a strong second-factor challenge, including pluggable, built-in tokens.
"This next generation of authentication capability continues the core FIDO mission of implementing an authentication framework that enables stronger security, better user experiences, lower cost, and increased user privacy," said Rajiv Dholakia, vice president of products at Nok Nok Labs, in a statement. "In the pursuit of this mission, we will help reduce reliance on passwords and the risk created by shared, centralized secrets."
