Palm Security Token
The SolidPass family of security tokens supports the Palm. The SolidPass software token for the Palm is engineered to generate a one-time password (OTP) that dynamically changes. Potential uses of SolidPass include securing access to enterprise applications and vpn connections. The security token can also be used to authenticate users and sign transactions. This is especially useful for online banking and mobile banking security, where it can be embedded in a mobile banking application for seamless authentication.
Palm One-Time Password Generation App
The SolidPass Palm application can be used for either event-based or time-synchronized one-time password generation
Palm Mobile Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Application
SolidPass also supports the following additional strong two-factor authentication methods on the Palm mobile platform:
- PIN control mandatory/optional
- Security Question
- Transaction Data Signing (TDS)
- Mutual Authentication
Palm Mobile Token Convenience
The key advantage of the mobile token is that there are no new devices or wallet-fillers for customers – just an add-on to the device they already carry everywhere. Since customers already own the “hardware” (the Palm mobile phone), SolidPass can be provided and managed at a fraction of the true cost of a hardware token solution. Thanks to its flexible framework, the application can also be updated to guard against new security threats.
Software Token Embedded
SolidPass is a software token built such that it can be used as a standalone product or embedded in mobile applications such as mobile banking.
The Palm security token can be used to prevent the following:
- Phishing Attacks
- Pharming Attacks
- Man-In-The-Middle Attacks
- DNS Cache Poisoning Attacks
- Trojans Attacks
- Man-In-The-Phone Attacks
- Browser Poisoning Attacks
Hardware tokens have a limited life span. After their obsolescence, they have to be discarded and new ones have to be issued. By contrast, Palm security tokens are a virtual product using existing hardware, thus minimizing negative externalities.
