(protection against phishing and preservation of electronic document integrity)
Winkeo-C FIDO2 + QSCD is a a USB Type-C security key​ manufactured in Europe. It integrates a certified eIDAS QSCD PKI applet, as well as the FIDO2 (CTAP 2.1) and FIDO U2F standards of the FIDO Alliance (Fast Identity Online). The FIDO protocol is based on asymmetric cryptographic architectures. It involves the use of a private/public key pair, with the private key always remaining on the Winkeo-C FIDO2 + QSCD card. The FIDO2 standard offers secure authentication without the need for a password. Simply insert the Winkeo-C FIDO2 + QSCD security key into your PC and enter your PIN to authenticate and and open your session. In this way, the smart card easily replaces your password.

It is compatible with Windows 10 / 11 and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). It also supports the FIDO U2F standard, enabling double authentication on online accounts such as social networks, webmails, e-commerce sites and online banking services.

In addition, Winkeo-C FIDO2 + QSCD incorporates a certified Common Criteria EAL6+ smart card component. The FIDO protocol ensures strong and secure authentication by leveraging the FIDO smart card as an authentication device, thereby enhancing the security of online accounts against phishing attacks. The eIDAS-qualified electronic signature guarantees the authenticity of the author, the integrity of the signed document, as well as its non-repudiation, in accordance with European standards and regulations regarding electronic signatures.

With Winkeo-C FIDO2 + QSCD, users benefit from high-quality logical security solutions as well as an extremely reliable qualified electronic signature solution, while remaining user-friendly.
