This is the fourth international FIDO2 certificate that Vingroup has achieved in the past 12 months, the previous three certificates are for VinCSS FIDO2® Touch 1 key, VinCSS FIDO2® Server and VinCSS FIDO2® VOS key on Vsmart phones.

VinCSS FIDO2® Fingerprint key with Bluetooth and NFC connectivity

VinCSS FIDO2® Fingerprint product was born entirely from Vingroup’s technology ecosystem in accordance with the spirit of “Make in Vietnam”. The entire processes of R&D, board design and firmware development were carried out at VinCSS R&D Center. The industrial design, mass production and finishing were done by Vinsmart. VinCSS and Vinsmart experts have had to overcome many challenges to produce a high-end strong authentication key product with technology and design rival world-class peers.

Especially, VinCSS has also launched a unique design initiative to solve the problem of users hesitate to carry a key or forget the key by providing an optional accessory to attach the key directly to the backside of the phone. The accessory holds the authentication key and acts as the phone stand, which makes it convenient for users to merge the key with the phone (which is something that the users always carry).

Built on the platform of this technology, VinCSS will continue to integrate the biometric FIDO2 authentication key technology to other fields and in other form factors such as applications on smartphones with fingerprint sensors, smart bracelet, smart watch, smart door lock, smart car control system to enhance the authentic experience for users.
