Summary:In this special review, we round up the various authentication devices on the market. From fingerprint scanners, to single sign-on software and biometric technology -- we have the authentication market covered.
Device to device authentication and secure online transactions are a little bit harder to achieve, particularly if the customer is not already known, qualified and trusted by the merchant.
In this new era of corporate compliance and policy enforcement, it is best to cover all bases when it comes to security.
So to ensure a device is really what it says it is then digital certificates come into use. Two vendors who are well established in electronic transactions, secure communications, encryption and authentication are Verisign and RSA. These security vendors also have a range of tokens and associated software available.
