Fujitsu enables secure use of cloud services via IoT devices using a smartphone's biometric authentication
TT Correspondent |  |  16 Feb 2017

Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. today announced the development of a technology that enables safe and easy use of cloud services through IoT devices using the biometric authentication functionality of smartphones and near-field wireless functionality.

In the era of IoT, various devices are connected to cloud services. When using these services such as parcel delivery lockers in apartments or public facilities, or when using car sharing services, user authentication will need to take place each time a service is used. With existing ID and password systems, users have to manage multiple IDs and passwords which make the authentication process cumbersome.

By applying FIDO technology that enables biometric authentication of a cloud service's user without extracting biometric information from that user's smartphone, Fujitsu Laboratories has developed technology that establishes a secure network between a cloud service, an IoT device, and a smartphone, and then simultaneously verifies the identity of the user and that the user is in front of the IoT device.

With this newly developed technology, users can safely and conveniently access cloud services through a variety of IoT devices without inputting an ID and password, using just their smartphone's biometric authentication. In addition, this technology enables the provision of a strong personal authentication service using biometrics without requiring service providers to manage an individual's biometric information for each device or service.
