Finema’s Cryptographic Key Authentication

A user-friendly solution to all forms of password theft and phishing.

Passwords have outlived their efficacy. Not only are they a drain of time and resources, they are weak and prone to theft!

In a multi-factor authentication (MFA) process, a user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (called factors). Without MFA, you enter in your username and password, and then you are done. The password is your single factor of authentication. The second factor makes your account more secure.

Finema provides a second layer of authentication (cryptographic key authentication) designed according to FIDO WebAuthn standard.


  • To access an online service, a user first inputs her username and password. The online service then prompts the user to scan the QR code.
  • The user goes to her Finema e-ID wallet and uses her biometrics, e.g. a fingerprint, to unlock her secret key.
  • The user then scans the QR code via Finema e-ID wallet. The wallet will communicate with the server.
  • If the secret key is valid, the user will successfully be logged in.

Our Cryptographic Key Authenticator is designed with security and privacy protections, built-in phishing resistance and ease-of-use. This gives it the potential to drive widespread adoption across enterprise and consumer markets, making everyone safer as a result.
