VINCSS Internet Security Services Limited Liability Company, an affiliate of Vingroup, has just been awarded the FIDO2 Certificate for its authentication key product by IDO Alliance.

FIDO2 is the overarching term for FIDO Alliance’s newest set of specifications. FIDO2 enables users to leverage common devices to easily authenticate online services in both mobile and desktop environments.

Around the world, there are 13 countries capable of mastering technology for producing FIDO2-certified products, led by developed countries such as USA, Japan, Canada, UK and Germany.

This makes Vingroup one of 34 companies capable of producing and mastering the most modern technology in the field of security authentication.

This event not only marks VinCSS in the world security technology community but also affirms the transformation of Vingroup as the leading technology corporation, gradually integrating with world-class and complex technologies.

This result also enables VinCSS to rank among FIDO2-certified technology companies and corporations such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, Fujitsu, Yubico, Solokey and Kensington.

To achieve the certification, VinCSS FIDO2 Authenticator must pass the interoperability testing with a rate of 180/180 on two consecutive days. All product operations must be compatible with all popular browsers. Interactions with ten authentication servers specified by FIDO Alliance must have zero errors.

Besides, design engineers of VinCSS must pass a face-to-face interview with the FIDO Board Certification Committee with lots of difficult questions about the technological design details of the product. Last but not least, VinCSS was required to submit a Vendor Questionnaire detailing all the technical specifications of the product for evaluation by the FIDO Alliance.

Nguyễn Phi Kha, Director of Research and Development of VinCSS, said it took nine months of research and development before VinCSS was FIDO2 certified by FIDO Alliance.

“This success of VinCSS will make a big change in defence activities of modern network security in Việt Nam. With our team of world-class experts, VinCSS will continue to introduce a series of practical products and services such as MSSP, VinSOC, Zero Trust Platform, ThreatHunting and IoT Security Lab,” Kha said.

In 2020, VinCSS will aim to provide an authentication service chain using the most modern technology, including types of authentication keys that support Bluetooth, NFC (Near-field communication, fingerprints, authentication solutions using applications and mobile phones as keys and services to support agencies and organisations converting authentication systems to prevent threats from network attacks such as phishing attacks.

FIDO2 authentication is the safest way to authenticate users. FIDO2 aims to eliminate the difficulty of having to remember too many passwords for end users as well as eliminating the risk of phishing, account cracking and hijacking network attacks. FIDO2 has been supported on all popular browsers, products and services of major vendors such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Samsung, Sony and Huawei. This product is becoming a global conversion trend with an increasing number of users. — VNS
