The Hardware Security SDK is a vendor-independent framework for using security keys and smartcards over NFC and USB.
Using our SDK with security keys prevents your accounts and sensitive data from being compromised by malware and network attacks. The user experience is improved, because two-factor authentication with security keys reduces the login time by over 60% in comparison to SMS-based solutions.
We secure successful projects for businesses across the globe.
Supports a wide range of Security Keys over USB, such as the YubiKey 4 and 5 Series, Nitrokeys and Google's Titan Key. YubiKey 5 NFC and YubiKey NEO are also supported over NFC. Of course, it also supports smartcards over NFC.
The FIDO standard allows for two-factor authentication with web services. It protects your account by using a hardware security key in addition to your username and password. FIDO has been deployed successfully by large services, including Google, Facebook, Dropbox and Salesforce.Add FIDO to Your App
Manage your critical infrastructure or Internet of Things (IoT) easily and securely with security keys. No longer require your technicians to synchronize cryptographic certificates between their devices or memorize complex passwords. Use YubiKeys, Nitrokeys, or printed smartcards, to access your Secure Shell (SSH).Simplify Your SSH Server Access
With PIV cards and PIV-capable YubiKeys your network login is centrally managed. Standardized by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) for government entities, it is also widely deployed in the private sector.Add PIV Login to Your App
Prevent unauthorized access to sensitive files by encrypting your whole app database. Instead of using complex user-entered passwords, security keys can provide real public-key cryptography. By simply holding the user's security key against the device, the app is decrypted and unlocked.Encrypt Your App
Google's research study shows that two-factor authentication with FIDO security keys reduces their employee's login time by over 60% in comparison to SMS-based solutions. Authentication failures fell to zero saving thounds of hours per year in support cost. Our SDK brings the FIDO standard to your app.
The Hardware Security SDK can also be used to encrypt your app's sensitive data at rest. Our study shows that using NFC keys for encryption is 50% faster than entering passwords on smartphones. Users prefer to use security keys in comparison to passwords-based encryption.
