Authkit.io – the cidaas Developer Tools for Identity & Access Management

Authkit.io – the cidaas Developer Tools for Identity & Access Management

Authkit.io offers various tools for Identity & Access Management. With Authkit.io, cidaas launches a new portal for easy integration and to work with cidaas.

cidaas as a modern Cloud Identity & Access Management System offers many features such as Single Sign-On, Multi-Factor or Passwordless Authentication (more about the cidaas Features Set). In addition to the standards OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect and SAML 2.0, the numerous SDKs and interceptors provided by cidaas or in open source ensure easy integration of cidaas into modern IT landscapes.

With the new Dev Tools for Identity & Access Management, which cidaas offers through Authkit.io, the integration and work with cidaas shall become even easier.

Tokens, especially access and ID tokens defined through OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect standards, are central elements in modern identity & access management solutions. Tokens are often mapped in JWT format, as in cidaas.

Token handling is one of the everyday tasks for developers, business analysts and often also technically savvy project leads. Therefore, cidaas offers a JWT decoder as the first feature on Authkit.io.

Now that Authkit.io is live with a first MVP, the JWT Decoder, new features will be added continuously in the future.

Tschüss Passwort: Die Initiative für Passwortlose Authentifizierung

cidaas takes initiative for password-less authentication – tschuesspasswort.de

cidaas takes initiative for password-less authentication – tschuesspasswort.de

With the initiative “Bye password! The future of login” cidaas is launching an initiative for passwordless authentication. From now on the campaign site can be found at www.tschuesspasswort.de.

As a Cloud Identity & Access Management system, cidaas offers a wide range of authentication methods, including password-less authentication. This type of authentication has several advantages over the classic login with e-mail/username and password. In particular, authentication for users becomes much more comfortable and more secure. If one looks at some of the most common hacker attacks, these focus on identity theft in the context of the password. The most common hacker attacks and the meaning of passwords in this context were recently published by cidaas in a blog.

.

Customers of cidaas already offer their users the possibility of passwordless authentication in almost all of Europe. With the initiative “Bye password! The future of login” cidaas wants to push this further and has therefore published the landing page www.tschuesspasswort.de. In addition to some information on the various authentication methods, such as device biometrics (e.g. TouchID) or FIDO2, topics such as additional protection using multi-factor authentication or identity verification, as well as the possibility of a live test of password-less authentication are also offered.

cidaas now joins as a member of the Alliance for Cyber Security!

Since mid-July we are a member of the Alliance for Cyber Security. With this great news we want to take this opportunity to explain some of the points.

The Alliance for Cyber Security is an initiative of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). This platform was developed in cooperation with the German Federal Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications, and New Media. (BITKOM).

The Alliance for Cyber Security is a combination of a broad range of information on cybersecurity issues and a forum for cooperation with industry, authorities, research, and science, and other institutions.

Why is this membership so important to us? cidaas itself offers several functions to improve security against unauthorized access. For example, in the age of digitalization, the number of endpoints has increased dramatically, so the standardized API security provided by OAuth2.0 and OpenID Connect makes a critical contribution to protecting digital channels.

Tools such as secure, passwordless authentication methods, Multi-Factor-Authentication, and fraud detection & botnet detection are also used in the fight against cyber threats.

We are looking forward to the exchange, the discussions and are looking forward to making tomorrow’s world a safer place – now also as part of the Cyber Security Alliance.

Modern login to Flutter: Social Login, Single-Sign-On and Device Biometrics

OIDC and OAuth2.0 with the Flutter SDK from cidaas

With the cidaas Flutter SDK, it is now easy to connect cidaas as identity and access management and use functions such as device biometrics, social logins or multi-factor authentication.

Flutter is an open-source UI framework developed by Google. It is based on the programming language Dart and allows to build a native app for iOS, Android, and web and desktop apps with only one source code.

In identity management, OpenID connect and OAuth2.0 are the de facto standards for secure and reliable user identification and authorization.

The cidaas Flutter SDK is available on pub.dev. There we also show how easy it is to implement the authorization code flow to OIDC.

We will answer your questions:

  • How is the access_token stored securely?
  • How are the login and logout triggered?
  • How do I create Single Sign On easily?

With the cidaas Flutter SDK, you can also use Social Login procedures such as AppleID, Facebook and Device Biometrics authenticate.

Have fun with the development and contact us if you have any questions!
