Identification, Authentication, Authorization Solutions

  • As more and more of companies are being of their of the power of information systems enabling their businesses with complex these and the ubiquitous presence of applications also increases. Age application has its own identification mechanism authentication mechanism which the organizations all not able to cope up to enable its users to easily get into the applications to any kinds of transactions. Identification solutions held the organizations to unify their identification principles mechanisms by which people can be having a single forward approach to reach their applications. As an example in a banking process, a corporate customer might be identified as a separate user and the same customer in the retail banking may be identified as a different user relating to different identities. On the other hand the same internal employee of the ban might use and application which is part of another branch in another country and he may have to use another identity in order to get into the application of the same ban but as a different user because that identity education mechanisms or different according to their warm countries principles and the banking regulations.
  • Federated identity principle is what is explained as the second example bearing the same user can be identified across the different entities of the same bank lets say in different countries using the federated identity approach.


  • Nbiz Provides the best authentication solution products to ensure your organization has secured transaction and operations.Below are the authentication types where Nbiz provides.
  • Two Factor Authentication

Two Factor Authentication is simply means what you know and what you two days typical banking transaction customers were given a simple token in order to authenticate to the banking the token beach the band’s provide and the passwords that you need to put in addition to your username and the number that flashes on the token is called a two factor authentication.

  • Three Factor Authentication

Three factor authentication simply means what you know, what you have and what you are. The simplest example is fingerprint biometric. You need to enter your password, and to the token number, and put your fingerprint in order to enter the particular secure area.

Weak passwords are a problem because they are easy to guess – and they are certainly no match for brute-force password attacks by criminals using automated password cracking software such as John the Ripper.

One way to beef up the security of your authentication process is to force users to create long, complex passwords, but such enforcement comes at the risk of employees writing the passwords down – thereby defeating the attempt to increase security.

A better method is to adopt a two-factor authentication system. To authenticate, users have to supply a password ("something they know") as well as information from a second factor – typically "something they have," such as a one-time password generator token.

The Biometric Advantage

Of course, one-time password tokens can be lost as well as potentially hacked, so relying on "something they have" is not always a foolproof approach.

Instead, an even more secure two-factor system can be based on "something they are" – that is, biometric information derived from measurable biological or behavioral characteristics.

Common biological characteristics used for enterprise authentication are fingerprints, palm or finger vein patterns, iris features, and voice or face patterns. These last three involve no physical contact with a biometric sensor, which makes them less intrusive to use.

What To Look For ?

  • Cost- The purpose of implementing any biometric system is generally to maintain the same level of security at lower cost, or to improve security at a reasonable cost. The cost of implementing a biometric system will depend on whether biometric authentication can be added to your existing authentication infrastructure using standards such as BioAPI (vendors such as Entrust support fingerprint readers as authenticators on their platform), or whether your entire authentication platform has to be replaced, or whether you decide to use an additional biometric authentication system in parallel with your existing one.An alternative approach could be to use biometrics to access a single sign-on system that then accesses your existing authentication system(s).Other factors include the cost of sensors such as fingerprint readers or iris scanners that have to be purchased. This drawback obviously does not apply with biometric system that use smartphones as sensors.
  • Biometric type and security. Different biometric systems provide different levels of security as measured by FNMR and FMR scores – and with the current state of technology, a good fingerprint reader   generally  offers a lower FNMR and FMR (and therefore "better security") than non-contact technologies such as voice or face recognition.But before rejecting any biometric type on the grounds that its FNMR and FMR scores are too high, it is important to consider what level of security you really need a biometric system to provide. A biometric system that you plan to use as the single factor for authentication needs to offer more security than a system that you plan to use as a second or third factor.It's also important to take into account the environment the biometric authentication system will be used in. For example, fingerprint readers do not work well in environments where users' fingers are likely to be dirty. Similarly, voice recognition systems are not a good match for excessively noisy environments.
  •  Anti-spoofing measures. One potential problem with biometric factors is that they are not "secrets" in the way that passwords or tokens are. This means that it could be possible for a hacker to present a photograph to fool a facial recognition system, to present a wax cast of a fingerprint to a reader, or to play back a recording of a voice to a voice recognition system. It may even be possible to intercept the biometric data from the reader and replay it later, bypassing the biometric sensor. Before purchasing any biometric technology, be sure to understand what types of anti-spoofing measures it employs.Vendors tackle this problem in a number of ways. For example, some voice recognition systems require users to authenticate by asking them to speak a series of random words, preventing them from using a previously recorded voice sample. Similarly, face recognition systems may attempt to detect blinking to ascertain that the image in front of the camera is not a photograph. Sophisticated fingerprint readers also measure heat or electrical conductivity to establish that the finger is "alive."
  • Revocation. Unlike a password, biometric characteristics such as fingerprints can't be revoked or changed. This can pose a serious problem should a hacker successfully compromise the database housing the biometric credentials. Some biometric systems may deal with this challenge by uniquely distorting or transforming the biometric template when it is stored, and transforming or distorting the biometric in the same way during the match process. If a hacker compromises a fingerprint template database, users can then re-enroll and distinct templates can be generated by using a different distortion or transformation. Ask any vendor you talk to how their system deals with template revocation.
  • Compatibility with operating systems and devices. Make sure any biometric system you are considering works with every operating systems in your organization that will use it. The same goes for mobile devices such as tablets and cellphones.
  •  Ease of management. When evaluating a biometric authentication system, make sure to pay particular attention to how easily the system can be managed using the management software provided to you by the vendor. It's particularly important to investigate how easily you can enroll large numbers of users into the system.
  •  Integration with directory systems: It's advisable to consider if the system can integrate easily with Active Directory or any other LDAP directory system you use. If not, does it use its own directory system, and how practical would it be for you to use it?
