G&D, Vodafone present SIM card-based login protection

Monday 16 February 2015 | 10:11 CET | News
G&D partnered Vodafone Germany to develop Vodafone Secure Login, a platform for corporate and public sector customers which acts as a second authentication element in addition to a password. The platform is based on a SIM card and incorporates a special security mechanism. Vodafone has already made it commercially available on the German market. The SIM card can be used as a second component that is a mandatory requirement when logging in to networks or services. In this way, it safeguards internet transactions or confirms access to a network.
