Hello Dear Reader !


In previous blogs we have mentioned the existence of Trust1Authentication, but as we have not yet dedicated a blog to this wonderful product.....here it is!


All the answers to your questions on authentication and why T1T has developed this product.



Enjoy reading !

 

Authentication: an intro


Authentication (from Greek: αὐθεντικός authentikos, "real, genuine", from αὐθέντης authentes, "author") is the act of proving an assertion, such as the identity of a computer system user. In contrast with identification, the act of indicating a person or thing's identity, authentication is the process of verifying that identity.

(thank you wikipedia)

Authentication is proving to a system or application that it is YOU who is trying to access. A lot of systems and applications still allow username and password as means of authentication. It has been proven numerous times that this is not a safe way of authentication.


There are better and safer ways using smart cards, tokens, other hardware means or mobile ID's (Smart-ID) and of course there is Trust1Team to facilitate that for you.


The T1T Authentication service

Here is the good news. It is a SERVICE. The only thing you need to do to is integrate two or maximum three steps in your web application:

  • start a new session and redirect the user to the T1T authentication page

  • parse the result (through a webhook) and give access to requester (user of your application)

  • [optionally] retrieve a detailed validation report


Benefits when using the Trust1Authentication service:

  • very quick and easy integration (documented on gitbook)


  • dynamic configurable means (ways for a user to authenticate, any of the long list that are supported by the Trust1Connector or the Truststore)


  • detailed report for certificate validation


  • no need to dive into detailed security implementation in a complex domain


  • dynamic branding with customisable authentication flows (Brand the authentication service to your look and feel and the user will never know that you redirected him to our service)


  • low-cost and maintained externally


A bit of technical information


The T1Authentication service, hosted by Trust1Team is an authentication page which can be used to authenticate users to your application using:



The service is web layer on top of the Trust1Connector.


Conclusion

If you are looking for a low cost and easy to maintain but most importantly a much safer way for you users to authenticate to your application start using Trust1Authentication.


Implement the validation report (optionally) to keep your CISO and CIO happy!
