“STC Innovations” is the newest member of the FIDO Alliance!

“STC Innovations”, an experienced developer of voice and mutlimodal biometric solutions and the subsidiary company of Speech Technology Center, has joined the FIDO Alliance (Fast Identity Online Alliance).

The FIDO Alliance was nominally formed in July 2012 to address the lack of interoperability among reliable authentication devices as well as the problems users faced with creating and remembering multiple login credentials. The FIDO Alliance plans to change the nature of authentication by introducing the standards that would define an open, scalable and interoperable set of mechanisms that supplant reliance on passwords to securely authenticate users of online services. These new standards for security devices and browser plugins will allow any website or cloud application to interface with a broad variety of existing and future FIDO-enabled devices that the user could use for online security. “STC Innovations” became the third Russian organization represented in the association.

VoiceKey software applies the latest technologies for secured customer authentication and personal data protection. It’s based on voice biometrics technologies as voice becomes the most reliable way of user verification for remote services, as it is the only feature that can’t be stolen or counterfeited. The association with FIDO Alliance will make STC Innovations’ technologies compatible with solutions of other international developers and increase availability to the end customers.

“The growing interest in biometric verification technologies and their increasing penetration, create a need for development of corresponding security standards. We share the ideas of FIDO Alliance founders. There’s no need to memorize a lot of information such as passwords, security words etc. Customers can use their own voice and facial characteristics for verification, regardless of the method or device (phone, Internet resources, special mobile applications etc.). STC Innovations' solutions adhere to the modern quality and safety standards, and we will work together with the Allaince to promote widespread user adoption of FIDO authentication technologies” - says Dmitry Dyrmovsky, President of STC Innovations.

“The FIDO Alliance is proud of our associate member ‘STC-innovations’ for its dedication to the vision of industry standards for strong authentication. They join a powerful FIDO ecosystem vital to widespread adoption of interoperable, strong authentication that simplifies the user experience while raising security and privacy at the same time,” said Michael Barrett, FIDO Alliance president. “FIDO Alliance members embody the innovation that FIDO specifications enable. ‘STC-innovations’ joins FIDO Alliance members in rigorously defining and outlining the FIDO specifications, preparing all use cases for the public release of FIDO specifications later this year.”
