US-based IT management software developer CA Technologies has partnered with Poste Italiane, a provider of postal, banking, insurance and payment services in Italy, to provide the latter with CA AuthMinder authentication solution for its mobile payment application used by customers on their smartphones and tablet devices.

Postepay application allows customers to interact with a range of Poste Italiane services allowing them to check account balances, add funds to prepaid cards, add funds to a prepaid mobile phone and transfer funds. Postepay app uses the PosteID system based on CA AuthMinder.

To use the service, the Postepay customer must sign-up on the Poste Italiane website and register the mobile devices intended for use with Postepay app. A text message is then sent to the registered mobile number with a unique activation code associated with the Postepay app installed on the device. On activation, the PosteID software credential is sent to the device. The PosteID credential is locked to the device and can then be used in combination with the user’s PIN to verify his identity.
