Synaptics Inc. Delivers SecurePad for Notebook PCs
Dec 10 14
Synaptics Inc. announced the availability of SecurePad, the latest Fast Identity Online (FIDO) ready authenticator to support the use of password-free security. Leveraging Synaptics' fingerprint ID technology, SecurePad is the first solution to be integrated directly into the TouchPad, delivering high level security without sacrificing any convenience for the consumer, while also eliminating the need for OEMs to implement duplicate hardware components, simplifying the supply chain and reducing manufacturing cost and complexity. Synaptics SecurePad enables password-free security and login to any online service that supports the FIDO Unified Authentication Framework (UAF). Instead of creating passwords, end users complete a fingerprint authentication on the laptop to register a public/private key pair, unique to the laptop, the user account, and the online service. To login, the end user performs the same fingerprint authentication, initiating a cryptographically secure challenge/response with the online service provider. As a result, the solution does away with storing password databases in the cloud, thwarting the efforts of thieves to steal and exploit consumer passwords.

Recognizing this trend that I talked about was inevitable, we could either decide to exit touch or we could make the necessarily acquisition and have an integration strategy in play."
