Gemalto showcased its extended range of Ezio tokens for eBanking authentication and transaction signing at Cartes 2012. The Ezio token portfolio, recently reinforced with the new Ezio Pico, combines security with convenience to support the need for instant and easy access to online banking services.
Used in conjunction with the Ezio Library software development kit, these devices deliver a response to the need for protection during eBanking and eCommerce transactions.
Designed to enhance online banking services while also addressing online banking fraud attacks, the Ezio token range encompasses different security methods, including One Time Password, challenge/response verification and transaction data signing. As a result, solutions can be tailored to individual market requirements and different banking security systems.
Utilizing encryption based on industry standards, with the support of the popular Ezio Library, new applications can be implemented quickly and efficiently whilst minimizing total cost of ownership.
Ezio tokens presented by Gemalto at Cartes 2012 include the Ezio Lava, the Ezio Pico and the Ezio onCard. The Ezio Lava features a single button which is pressed to generate a unique, one time password. The latest addition to the Ezio range is the Ezio Pico, an updated form-factor that is replacing the Ezio Grip. The Ezio Pico delivers a higher level of security and control by allowing the user to digitally sign requests (also called “challenges”) and transaction data.
The Ezio onCard device offers further levels of convenience, as it is coming in an innovative credit card size format, featuring a flexible embedded display with either a single button for OTP generation or a 12-button touch keypad enabling PIN code protection and challenge/response verification.
