ZenKey: Cellular Network Enhances Security

In 2020, we saw the pandemic accelerating the digital transformation three-fold. In 2021, the ability to adapt to the predominance of the digital realm will make or break businesses across industry verticals. Fraudsters watch and wait while consumers struggle to manage each of the accounts integral to their daily lives

The coin of this digital realm, for service providers of any stripe and consumers alike, is identity. Historically, the relationship has been one-way; a user authorized a provider to act on his/her/their behalf. The accelerating reliance on digital access to services, along with increasing legal and social demands to protect PII (personal identifiable information), means everyone must rethink identity.

ZenKey: A Network-Based Identity Solution

As threats of data breaches, identity theft, and large-scale fraud seem to grow daily, millions of online users also face the burden of managing multiple passwords. The digital economy is growing faster than ever and so is the need for a radically new identity management solution. One that eliminates passwords and provides seamless, user-centric security. One that provides privacy controls with a high level of confidence.

That solution is here. Introducing ZenKey. A joint-venture between AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, that provides a highly secure network-based identity solution. It delivers a seamless experience with unique fraud detection signals that only the largest mobile carriers can provide.

Why ZenKey is Better

The ZenKey identity solution provides multi-factor authentication and authorization based on a user’s mobile device and network attributes. It integrates the trusted security attributes of the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card with the OpenID Connect1 authentication protocols.

An identity solution generally includes four key actors – (1) Users, (2) Identity Providers, (3) Relying Parties, and (4) a Governance Body. The Users are entities for which the identity solution provides authentication and authorization. The Identity Providers manage user attributes to validate, process, and assure digital transactions on behalf of Users. The Relying Parties accept user assurances from Identity Providers to allow service access. This is the standard structure. But what makes ZenKey a better option?
