Understanding CIBA - What it is and how it works

Allowing app users to smoothly and securely authenticate has long been a challenge. A standards-based way to address this is to use Client Initiated Backchannel Authentication (CIBA) from the OpenID Foundation. It’s a great addition to the developer toolbox because it can be used in many different scenarios and use cases to provide financial-grade API security.

CIBA is an authentication flow that extends OpenID Connect and defines a decoupled flow where authentication can be initiated on one device and carried out at another. It lets people use their mobile devices to authenticate and approve transactions. This webinar will give you an overview of the standard, show you how it works, and how you can implement it.

Key takeaways:

  • An understanding of what CIBA is
  • The difference between front-channel and back-channel authentication
  • Improve user experience by introducing back-channel authentication
  • How to achieve strong customer authentication with a separate app or device
  • Increased awareness that will help you obtain regulatory compliance
