Multi-Factor Strong Authentication

Passwords are no longer sufficient to fend off hackers. Strong authentication services enable web applications to identify end-users securely. This gives high level assurance and control to every organisation that needs to protect access to its web services.

Strong customer authentication (also known as multi-factor authentication) uses two or more of the following elements:

  1. knowledge (something only the user knows),
  2. possession (something only the user has)
  3. inherence (something the user is)

Does my company need strong authentication?

Yes, if you need to protect access to on-line services and personal data in order to reduce financial and reputational risk

Yes, if you need to comply with:

  • Payment Service Directive 2 (PSD2) which requires strong authentication “each time a payer accesses their payment account online, initiates an electronic payment transaction or carries out any action through a remote channel which may imply a risk of payment fraud or other abuse
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which requires strong protection of users’ personal data

Finding the right authentication solution for you

LuxTrust’s Strong Customer Authentication services are available through a “Strong Authentication as a Service” platform in SaaS mode. They are delivered via the easily accessible LuxTrust ORELY portal, which is hosted in Tier IV Data Centres in Luxembourg.

Services can be integrated easily into existing Web application environments, using the SAML protocol. LuxTrust can provide sample libraries to accelerate the implementation process.

Your end-users are equipped with LuxTrust electronic identities, also called certificates. Once the authentication portal is integrated with your system, LuxTrust provides users with an authentication device linked to their certificate. This device will give them access to your website through a strong authentication process. Below are the different supports available.
