GOTrust Introduces FIDO microSD

Provides universal strong authentication that can replace password authentication

Taichung, Taiwan - December 24, 2013. GOTrust, a FIDO Alliance member, announces FIDO microSD, among the first certified FIDO Ready&trade products in the marketplace. FIDO microSD will work with 99% of existing laptops and personal computers, and the one billion Android devices in the marketplace today. FIDO microSD supports FIDO login and includes 8GB memory capacity for user storage.

"For the hundreds of millions of users and systems integrators who want to adapt existing devices to become FIDO Ready&trade, there is FIDO microSD," said Darren Lee, CEO of GO-Trust. "GO-Trust makes it simple, fast and affordable for developers and providers of personal computers, mobile devices and phones already in the marketplace to be enabled with universal strong authentication that can replace password authentication with easier to use, more secure and private authentication."

FIDO microSD provides portability from device to device and one FIDO microSD can enable many devices and work for all sites that require or accommodate FIDO authentication.

"GOTrust's FIDO microSD is a great example of how users can benefit from the simple and powerful authentication strategies made possible by the FIDO Alliance," said Joerg Borchert, vice president of the chip card and security business for Infineon Technologies North America. "GOTrust chose the Infineon SLE97144SD Secure Element controller for its implementation of the microSD which gives the platform unsurpassed security based on our Integrity Guard technology and the high-speed contactless interfaces required for a superb user experience."

For enterprises and end users, microSD will soon be available at popular online outlets like eBay and Amazon. For more information about FIDO microSD, see http://www.go-rust.com/products/microsd-java/

FIDO microsSD can be seen in action at the Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas, NV from January 7-10, 2014 at the Infineon suites at the Aria Hotel.
