Secure identity solutions firm Intercede has launched a fingerprint login service for the blogging platform WordPress.The solution RapID Secure Login (RapID-SL) is a Plugin for WordPress that enables administrators and subscribers to log into websites and blogs with fingerprints instead of usernames and passwords.In a statement, the firm said it harnesses Intercede's RapID credentialing service to provide high security authentication using 2048-bit cryptographic keys. To login from any desktop browser, users scan a QR-code with RapID-SL on a smartphone. The app then delivers a cryptographic signature which logs the user in without having to enter any details into the browser. To login with RapID-SL from a phone or tablet, users simply tap the QR code on screen and subsequently provide a fingerprint or PIN.”Based on Intercede's proven experience working with some of the most security conscious organisations in the world, this new Plugin provides users with a secure, easy to implement and simple to use authentication service for any WordPress site,” commented Intercede's CEO, Richard Parris. “The solution is security magic for small businesses and consumers who have previously felt digitally disenfranchised from enjoying strong levels of security and privacy. Faced with the harsh reality of today's digital economy, usernames and passwords are no longer fit for purpose as they become an easy target for hackers. RapID-SL provides an alternative that is both more secure and user-friendly. We expect more businesses and consumers to demand this level of security in future to protect their sensitive information from prying eyes.”
