Summary:

RSA Adaptive Authentication Mobile SDK Modules enable mobile application developers to integrate the world-class security of RSA Adaptive Authentication risk-based authentication into mobile applications on device platforms that include Android™ and Apple® iOS. Adaptive Authentication benefits the customer through offering multi-channel fraud protection. By providing a unified view of the end user of web and mobile channels, Adaptive Authentication provides protection and authentication per channel while analyzing behavior and activities across channels.

 

The Mobile Data Collection Module provides collection methods for mobile device identifiers and mobile device geolocation data that are used for risk assessment in Adaptive Authentication. The module is designed to be embedded in the customer mobile application, from where it enables flexible and customizable collection of device identifiers and location information. The Mobile Data Collection Module powers the Mobile Channel Protection Module, an extension of Adaptive Authentication that compliments the Web Channel Protection Module.

 

 The Mobile Authentication Module provides integration for Adaptive Authentication to enable mobile application developers to utilize fingerprint and eyeprint biometric technology for out-of-band step-up authentication purposes in Adaptive Authentication. These features leverage the end-to-end integration of the Adaptive Authentication Mobile SDK biometrics authentication methods (Fingerprint and Eyeprint) as an out-of-the-box step-up method within Adaptive Authentication. Biometric authentication enables customers to provide end users with ease-of-use, flexibility, and security through a variety of innovative authentication methods, which are appropriate for different end users, scenarios, and device types. To ensure maximum privacy protection, all of the biometric data that the SDK collects remains on the user device. The SDK provides a set of API calls that support initial end-user enrollment and subsequent authentication validation. The Mobile Authentication Module can be integrated within the logical mobile application flows, to provide in-app and on-device biometric authentication methods.
