1Kosmos BlockID Adds Passwordless Authentication to Amazon Cognito

1Kosmos announced it has completed the integration of its 1Kosmos BlockID platform with Amazon Cognito. As an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, 1Kosmos enables Amazon customers to seamlessly add passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA) to their customer-facing web and mobile application journeys.

Customers can deploy and directly procure BlockID from the AWS Marketplace to implement phishing resistant passwordless MFA on AWS Cognito that delivers a frictionless user experience through non-spoofable, live biometrics with verified identity. The BlockID cloud service is designed to prevent identity impersonation, account takeover and fraud while delivering a convenient, frictionless login experience. 

"Unlike traditional passwordless and MFA platforms, 1Kosmos BlockID uses identity-based verification to transparently authenticate users and prevent account compromise and fraud," said Huzefa Olia, Co-Founder and COO for 1Kosmos. "This integration with Amazon Cognito makes it fast and easy for Amazon customers to add a flexible array of MFA options to end user journeys based on their unique identity assurance and security requirements." 

BlockID MFA supports biometric authentication including TouchID (fingerprint) and FaceID with liveness detection, as well as one-time passwords (OTP) via SMS and email, time-based one-time password (TOTP) from a linked mobile authenticator, and push notifications. This enables Amazon customers to choose the MFA methods best suited to the needs of their application ecosystem.


1Kosmos BlockID for Amazon Cognito is available immediately on the AWS marketplace
