Two-Factor with
FIDO standard

Initial Situation

Two-factor authentication is gaining more and more traction across the globe, especially due to the continuously high rate of cyberattacks. It is already integrated into many IT solutions in the healthcare sector and more companies are following this trend. Clinerion is even one step further. The company relies on a particularly advanced form of authentication. The company was recently looking for a suitable provider to secure its Patient Network Explorer applications using two-factor authentication in accordance with the FIDO standard (Fast Identity Online), which facilitates passwordless login.

It should not be possible for external parties to gain unauthorized access to the Patient Network Explorer. Researchers can use the cloud application to display search results for suitable patient groups for clinical trials of new pharmaceutical products, for example. It simultaneously serves as the basis for requests to hospitals in the network. Clinics have on-premises servers for patient data, which has been de-identified in accordance with GDPR and needs to be reconciled. Patient data can not be found in the cloud itself. That means these systems exchange information when requests are received.

The actual API integration of the solution in the backend went off without a hitch and onlytook a few days. On the other hand, it took more time and some corrections to adapt thesoftware, especially for Android. The presence of biometric sensors, which are only installedin newer devices, is also mandatory. Alternatively, authentication can be performed per emailor SMS. The situation is different for iOS devices. It proved advantageous that Apple alsoprovides an updated version 14 of its operating system for older models

The mobile app was put to the test by the developers themselves. Since the project was relatively, there was no need to outsource inspections or carry out extensive testing with user participants.
