ThinC-AUTH BioPro

Biometric PIV & FIDO2

Download Brochure

ThinC-AUTH BioPro works with AzureAD Certificate Based Authentication (CBA), Local AD SmartCard Login, RDP and Windows Server machines.

A PIV (Personal Identity Verification) uses certificate-based authentication (CBA) enables enterprise users to securely authenticate to access controlled resources (Servers, Workstations, Applications etc.) and information systems at the appropriate security level. ThinC-AUTH BioPro also works with Azure Active Directory and Microsoft Account to access Microsoft Cloud Services, including Microsoft 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and Microsoft Azure with a simple touch of a fingerprint authentication using FIDO2.

• Compatible with Microsoft Windows, MacOS, and Linux platforms — works with most of the latest version of browsers
• Smart card-based public key infrastructure (PKI) authentication for Windows login, VPN, Web Login, Remote Sessions, as well as data security, digital signature and secure email.
• Two-factor authentication with PIN
• Request a certificate from a Windows Certification Authority, generate a self-signed certificate, or import an existing certificate to the AUTH BioPro Key.
• Generate a certificate based on the Server CA Template stored in the secure element on the device. Supports all Windows smart card behaviors, including lock on removal.
• Authentication to the application is less than 750ms
• Durability tested for more than 20,000 insertion cycles
• Temperature: Storage —20°C to 70°C
• Temperature: Operating —5°C to 55°C

Benefits of Biometric PIV & FIDO2

Eliminates password related common attack vectors such as phishing, intercepting, stealing, sharing or any other compromisation factors.
Simplifies the authentication process
Simplifies the authentication process. PIV doesn’t require hard-to-remember or confusing passwords for the client. When employees don’t need to remember passwords, it’s easier for authorized users to access privileged services and sites. Additionally, this reduces IT support costs and employee frustration.
