Advanced Authentication

CJIS Solutions offers Advanced / 2 Factor Authentication for agencies who do not want the added expense of owning their own server, managing it, or worrying about upgrades as time goes on. We provide a solution that integrates with your existing onsite environment for a “per user per year” pricing structure.

Hosted completely from our CJIS compliant cloud, the 2 Factor Authentication solution from CJIS Solutions will also enable you to authenticate with a domain or without a domain at the local level. Plus, laptops can authenticate without internet access which makes implementing 2 factor to just your patrol cars low cost and simple.

What is Advanced Authentication?

Simply put, Advanced Authentication it is something you know and something you have. Meaning, your password you “know”, but what do you “have”? Our Advanced Authentication Solutions give you several “something you have” options. Whether it be a physical USB device or token, a software option such as an Android or iPhone App, or messaging option that will text your pin numbers. CJIS Solutions offers it all and at a comfortable price.

The CJIS Solutions Difference?

So with so many solutions out there, why ours? For one, we use what we sell. All of our staff uses the exact same product to access our own equipment so we know what you’re going through. Second, and most important, we’re the only CJIS compliant company that hosts the platform leaving you with only the end user devices. You’ll eliminate the need to purchase a server and incur the costly expenses that go along with it.

View our Tokens and how they work

It all begins with the secure token. Our software token technology turns your Windows Mobile, Windows Phone 7, RIM Blackberry, Apple iPhone or Google Android into an SoftToken authentication device. It also works on Windows desktops and directly on USB based Yubikeys. In combination with our Hosted Strong Authentication Server, we then program a unique 192bit AES key into the phone and configure it to produce 8 digit one-time-passwords with each use. This creates a huge keyspace, and with a 4 to 8 digit PIN, produces upwards past a trillion different possibilities… changing EACH time it is used. As a software token, it never expires, and will last as long as your device or desktop does.

Our hardware token technology is based on the industry proven CryptoCard KT1 and KT4 system which has been used to protect everything from Los Alamos Laboratories, Apple Computers and even Google. It generates a new one-time-password each time it is used, and combined with a user’s personal PIN provides for a strong passcode that cannot be forged or ever used twice. Your officers will simply insert the USB key into the computer they need CJIS access on, press the button, and the new one time password will appear for them to use.

In combination with our software, we then program a unique 192bit AES key into the token and configure it to produce 8 alpha-numeric one-time-passwords with each use. Its keyspace offers over 2.8 trillion different possibilities… changing EACH time it is used.

Our hardware tokens are powered by coin-cell batteries that provide 5 to 7 years of service, depending on the number of authentications you perform. (On KT-01 tokens, batteries may be replaced as required to extend the service life of the token) Most other providers have a 3 year life.
