End users use the Privakey App or apps embedded with licensed Privakey CX technology to approve logins and other authorizations. Privakey enabled apps connect to the Privakey Auth Service to secure these transactions. Each enabled app instance registered with the Auth Service can approve its authentications, providing users convenient and strong authentication wherever they’re working.
The user’s device functions as something the user has. The user’s PIN or biometric assertion serves as something the user knows or is, effectively enabling simple, two-factor authentication or authorization. The second factor is used to protect and access the private key of a unique asymmetric key pair generated on the device. The corresponding public key is bound to the user and device record in the Privakey Identity Server. The Privakey app is available for Windows (8.0 and higher), iOS, Android, and Chrome.
