Multifactor authentication requires multiple forms of identification at log-in. Two-factor authentication systems generally have 2 components "what you know" and "what you have". The traditional password is static – it is something that the user knows – just having this on layer of authentication leaves the user vulnerable to attack. The second layer of authentication is an extra layer of security that is known as "multi factor authentication" that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand – such as a physical token like the UniOTP.

Embedding multi-factor authentication is a no brainer for developers dealing with sensitive information. UniOTP delivers a sophisticated and affordable multi-factor authentication capability. The UniOTP token enables software vendors to augment their software by seamlessly adding an extra layer of security within systems to facilitate secure network access and perform secure password management.

Dynamic Authentication:

The UniOTP generates passwords that using a series of efficient algorithms compliant with the OATH standard and will be invalid after the time/event limit.

Strong security guarantee:

The passwords are generated by an intricate mechanism that involves a 160bit encryption key and 64 bit counter. Each UniOTP device has a unique symmetric key that is combined with a proven algorithm to generate a new one time password at the press of a button or every 60 seconds. The security of the passwords generated by UniOTP guarantees that that they are impossible for a hacker to circumvent.

Driverless and easy to use:

With UniOTP customers do not have to install any additional drivers or software for the authenticators work. Making the complicated process of authentication as simple as ‘plug and play’. The UniOTP provides network security for a range of devices – PCs, tablets and smartphones .
