Learning away from home has become the new standard for schools and universities during the coronavirus pandemic. At home, students, teachers and faculty have the best possible protection against the corona virus. However, computer viruses should not have an easy time! Learning and teaching without a classroom can go smoothly and well thanks to school clouds, online learning platforms and video chats. However, the foundations of the digital education infrastructure must be well structured and secure.

PCP helps schools, universities, colleges, and adult education centers throughout the German-speaking world to make it as easy and secure as possible for their teachers and instructors. Our top priority is to help you ensure secure access and exchange of your electronic data from your home office or within the school.

Passwords become obsolete

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) and two-factor authentication (2FA) are becoming the standard because they really protect the IT infrastructure of a university or school. However, it is a hassle for your teachers, students and faculty to remember personal passwords and possibly implement additional security measures. Enter password-less authentication, which simply replaces the password. They follow the principle: something the user has plus something the user knows.

Selection of FIDO & FIDO2 products in the PCP online store

Secure fingerprint access to the digital classroom / class register

A large number of internationally recognized companies are taking advantage of FIDO by opening their software application products for use with FIDO Security Keys.
Here is a growing list of companies.

In addition to flexible teaching methods and eager learners, the key to successful distance learning is a secure IT infrastructure. Therefore, it is important to have secure hardware and software. We help you to ensure two-factor authentication by using hardware tokens (OTP tokens) or biometric fingerprint-secured FIDO2 security keys, as recommended by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), Microsoft or the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce, to name just a few examples. FIDO stands for Fast Identity Online.

Why are FIDO keys or OTP tokens more secure than passwords?

  • No one wants to remember more and more passwords!
  • Users tend to use the same passwords over and over again.
  • Many teachers and lecturers use insecure applications on the same mobile devices they use privately to access sensitive areas of the school’s IT infrastructure.
  • Password/username combinations are deliberately obtained through phishing, malware attacks, or by hacking the servers themselves.
  •  Passwords are the cause of data breaches 81% of the time!

The solution:

FIDO Keys and OTP tokens enable secure, password-less multi-factor authentication that can be customized for many identities, profiles, devices, applications, apps, and IT firewalls.

As a further alternative, we offer rechargeable FIDO2 NFC badges and biometric FIDO2 Security Keys in different technical designs. Data is transferred via Bluetooth BLE or NFC as well as USB Type-A, Type-C or via Lightning interface.
For example, the FIDO2 AllinPass K43 can be used as a teacher or lecturer ID card and can also be used as a building and room access card.
Our tokens support the 2 most common algorithms (SHA1, SHA256) with either 30 or 60 second time intervals to meet the different requirements of your existing IT infrastructure applications with maximum security.
Seed Security
We provide maximum security through our OTP production management system. It allows token seeds to be generated on-site and tokens to be programmed by us. The seed is always transferred in encrypted form over multiple channels to ensure seamless security after your purchase.
