Reliable online authentication is one of the foundations of modern society. Government agencies need to be able to firmly establish the identity of citizens over the internet. Enterprises want to do business securely online, both with consumers and with other businesses. Without a digital identity, a person is effectively excluded from the online economy.
In both public and private sector, there is growing demand for reliable login solutions. New laws and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the eIDAS Regulation, are important drivers for that demand. Good authentication is now a requirement for any organisation with a public function. In addition maturity of technological developments and the extending digitisation of online services enhance this market need.
In this whitepaper, Connectis examines the current landscape. What are the defining trends and drivers in the field of online authentication? Which challenges do service providers face and how do they deal with this? We also look at the future and the technologies that will play a key role in this.
