PALO ALTO, Calif., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nok Nok Labs, an innovator in modern authentication and founding member of the FIDO Alliance, today announced that Samsung and PayPal have selected the company's NNL™ S3 Authentication Suite to enable the new mobile payment system introduced at Mobile World Congress. As Samsung and PayPal announced, the next Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone will enable seamless and secure mobile payments via an integrated Fingerprint Sensor (FPS). The S3 Suite from Nok Nok Labs allows both Samsung and PayPal to provide a simpler, more secure mobile shopping experience, leveraging the emerging FIDO™ standards.
The NNL™ Multifactor Client (MFAC) Mobile Edition (also called the "NNL FingerPrint Passport") allows the Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Sensor to connect securely to online services, and will help Samsung enable users to authenticate any FIDO Ready™ application with the existing security capabilities of their device. PayPal has deployed the NNL™ Multifactor Authentication Server (MFAS) to provide a unified and flexible authentication infrastructure that communicates securely with the NNL client on the Galaxy S5. Both Nok Nok™ products are FIDO Ready, meaning they have been certified by the FIDO Alliance.
"This is a tremendous opportunity to collaborate with Samsung and PayPal to help drive secure mobile payments around the globe," said Phillip Dunkelberger, President & CEO, Nok Nok Labs. "By providing the NNL FIDO Ready solution, we are bringing the vision of the FIDO Alliance on a global scale, and at the same time providing PayPal, Samsung and their customers with an easy-to-use and more secure solution."
"Combining FIDO Ready authentication with the new biometric security feature on the Galaxy S5 means users will no longer need to type passwords or login details when they shop," said Hill Ferguson, Chief Product Officer, PayPal. "Users of the Samsung Galaxy S5 can now benefit from a uniquely secure and seamless online, mobile and in-store shopping experience across the millions of merchants that accept our trusted PayPal service – this means that consumers don't need to sacrifice convenience to increase security."
The S3 Suite enables the next generation of authentication for Internet-scale applications and services, leveraging the existing security capabilities on a device, such as a built-in fingerprint sensor, camera or Trusted Platform Module (TPM), to provide user-friendly, strong authentication to any FIDO Ready application. While improving the user experience and unifying authentication silos, the S3 Suite also reduces the cost and complexity of authentication infrastructure. With a flexible and extensible architecture, the S3 Suite provides risk-appropriate authentication capabilities for a wide range of applications.
"Web services such as PayPal can now seamlessly add support for new and innovative methods of authentication, while ensuring that aged or broken authenticators can be quickly removed from circulation," said Michael Barrett, Executive Director of the FIDO Alliance. "We congratulate Nok Nok Labs on being selected by Samsung and PayPal to provide the first FIDO Ready deployment that will enable a simple, more secure mobile shopping experience."
Samsung is one of the world's most trusted handset makers, with a strong presence in more than 150 countries. PayPal enables global commerce and processes more than 9 million payments every day.
The Galaxy S5 will be available in April 2014. PayPal payments will be available from launch in 25 markets, including Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States.

[session] Focusing on Time-to-Value in Big Data Deployments By @AndyWarfield | @BigDataExpo #BigData
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

How Best to Integrate Cloud Foundry into Your Existing Ecosystem By @Gidrontxt | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps
As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
