AGNITiO and Nok Nok Labs Demo Secure Mobile Transactions at CES with FIDO Ready™ “Voice iD”

Consumer Electronics ShowAGNITiO, worldwide market leader in voice biometrics, and fellow FIDO Alliance founding member Nok Nok Labs, a company founded to transform online authentication for modern computing, announce the world’s first demonstration of a FIDO Ready Voice iD implementation, showcasing the market-transforming benefits of spoken voice authentication and identification for digital transactions.

“The hacking of personal information persists on a massive scale, costing businesses millions of dollars to mitigate fraud, while consumers remain frustrated with password-based authentication methods. The time is now for a change in the industry,” said Emilio Martinez, AGNITiO CEO. “With FIDO Ready™ Voice iD, the entire mobile ecosystem benefits – consumers simply authenticate by speaking, developers add personalization to their apps, commercial entities can provide expedient customer service and minimize security risks, all while saving time and money.”

The Agnitio and Nok Nok Labs FIDO Ready™ demonstration at CES 2014 shows how Voice ID and Nok Nok Lab’s Multifactor Authentication Client can be integrated into a mobile application to perform voiceprint-based strong authentication. The solution shown illustrates how FIDO-based authentication can replace the use of passwords to log in or confirm an e-commerce payment. This combination of Nok Nok Labs and AGNITiO FIDO Ready™ product empowers users of online, mobile, and point-of-sale applications to conveniently access sites and services, and perform transactions that are more secure, private, and easy-to-use.

Nok Nok Labs’ client and server software leverages the existing security capabilities on a user’s device such as a built-in microphone, fingerprint sensor, camera or Trusted Platform Module (TPM) in order to provide user-friendly, strong authentication to any application. Unlike current siloed authentication solutions, Nok Nok Labs allows organizations to support a wide range of authentication technologies from a single, unified platform.

“The FIDO Alliance is gaining momentum with more than 70 members joining in the last year including Microsoft, Google, Discover Financial, MasterCard, Aetna, Goldman Sachs and more,” said Phillip Dunkelberger, President and CEO of Nok Nok Labs. “AGNITiO shares our leadership in the FIDO Alliance and together we take pride in the rapid steps we are taking to create universal strong authentication through open standards. AGNITiO Voice iD demonstrates a compelling user experience that epitomizes the FIDO Alliance goals of simplicity and security. Importantly, AGNITiO’s and Nok Nok’s solution can be adopted for use today on the large existing install base of mobile devices, as well as for future devices.”

The AGNITiO Voice iD Advantage
