SecureKey Concierge to add ING DIRECT as Trusted Sign-In Partner

Wednesday 27 November 2013 10:20 CET | News

SecureKey, a Canadian online authentication services provider, has added ING DIRECT as a Trusted Sign-In Partner participating in the SecureKey Concierge service.

ING DIRECT clients are now able to access online services from the Government of Canada using their existing ING DIRECT login IDs and passwords instead of having to create new authentication credentials.

The SecureKey Concierge service brokers the authentication process between the individual, their bank, and the government online service, while keeping the individual’s interactions with their bank and their government service provider separate.

ING DIRECT joins three of Canada’s five banks in providing authentication credentials that may be used to access a number of online services from the Government of Canada. Among the Canadian federal departments and agencies currently offering access to their online services via the SecureKey Concierge service are Service Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency.

SecureKey is working to expand its portfolio of online services that will accept Sign-In Partner credentials to include many Canadian provincial and municipal government agencies, as well as some commercial entities.

The SecureKey Concierge service is based on the SecureKey Exchange bring-your-own-credential (BYOC) platform, which provides clients of the Government of Canada online services with more choices by enabling them to bring their own credentials from third-party providers like ING DIRECT and the other Trusted Sign-In Partners.

In recent news, SecureKey has added FIDO specification support to its cloud-based authentication platform to expand the range of hardware-based authenticators that can be used with the service.
