Although Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is considered a strong authentication mechanism, all existing MFA methods are vulnerable because they are based on a fixed secret eg: FIDO, OTP. Securing highly confidential information requires a stronger authentication mechanism and that is what CASQUE provides.

CASQUE is an authentication mechanism that does not rely on a fixed secret so there is nothing to target or disclose. It allows the customer to own and control their independent Identity access provision without any reliance or exposure from manufacturers or managed service delivery partners.

The CASQUE connector extends the functionality of WSO2 Identity Server where WSO2 Identity Server does the Primary Authentication of User ID and Password with prescribed IDs referred to CASQUE for Secondary Browser Authentication.

Join our webinar to learn:

  • What is CASQUE SNR
  • Why your business needs to consider CASQUE for authentication
  • How to use CASQUE with WSO2 Identity Server
