The extended functionality of the solution allows it to support MasterCard CAP Modes 1 and 2, alongside existing multiple authentication mechanisms, such as mobile readers and cards, One Time Password (OTP) tokens, OTP SMS in addition to traditional static passwords. Users of the Authenticator will be able to use the CAP standard on an authentication server that supports additional authentication options. All servers are hardware enhanced, ensuring that sensitive operations take place within the protected environment of a hardware security module (HSM). In addition to offering HSM protection of all keys, the company says Authenticator offers role assignment, dual control, and independent auditing.
