Seamless, Secure, and Convenient: The Future of Windows Authentication is Here
In a groundbreaking move, CodeB Identity Solutions has unveiled a revolutionary feature that allows users to utilize their NFC-enabled mobile devices as contactless NFC cards for Windows login. This innovation is made possible with the integration of the CodeB Authenticator app.
The Power of NFC-Based Multi-Factor Authentication
Logging into Windows has never been more secure and convenient. With the CodeB Credential Provider, users can now harness the power of Multi-Factor Authentication for Windows Logon, RDP sessions, and even for authenticating to remote shares. This means that NFC cards or NFC-enabled mobile devices can now serve as tangible, personal items for authentication, offering a higher level of security compared to traditional passwords. This is especially crucial for industries handling sensitive data, ensuring compliance with regulations like GDPR.
Mobile Phone NFC: The Game-Changer
The NFC technology in mobile phones has transformed the way we interact with devices. Beyond just enabling contactless payments, mobile phones with NFC can now emulate NFC/RFID cards. With the "CodeB Authenticator" app, any mobile device can be transformed into a versatile authentication tool, eliminating the need for traditional plastic cards. This promotes sustainability and offers users a more integrated authentication experience.
How It Works
1. Install CodeB Authenticator: For Windows logon, while a compatible NFC Card like MIFARE or DESFIRE is ideal, if you don't have a supported contactless card, simply download the "CodeB Authenticator" on your mobile device. Ensure NFC is activated on your device.
2. Register CodeB Credential Provider: The "CodeB Credential Provider" is available in two editions: the System Tray Stand-alone Application and the Comprehensive Suite of Tools and Applications. After installation, navigate to "Credential Provider" -> "NFC Credentials".
3. Link Account to NFC Token: Ensure your NFC Card or mobile device with the "CodeB Authenticator" app is close to a CCID-compliant contactless smartcard reader. After detection, enter your credentials and set a Logon PIN. Click on "Link Card" to complete the process.
4. Transitioning between Credential Providers: Users can effortlessly toggle between the standard Windows credential provider and the CodeB Credential Provider during Windows login.
