UniMate Flex is a two-factor mobile authentication token providing input and output for greater security requirements. Users can visually verify transactions on the device through an inbuilt LCD screen and confirm or cancel the transaction using the confirmation buttons, drastically reducing the risk of unauthorised transactions. The UniMate Flex also possess the same onboard high-performance smart card chip as the UniMate STD, and can also be used to apply the same type of encryption. The LCD screen and buttons provide the ability to perform functions off the mobile device, simple navigation options are available using the up and down keys and the ok or cancel buttons can be used to provide an interactive screen to view details of a transaction. UniMate provide a strong PKI authentication option not only on PCs but also on most mobile smart device, such as iPhone,iPad,Android and Windows Phone.

Remarks

• Please refer to the manuals within the documents directory of the SDK for in-depth information regarding UniMate Utilities, procedures and associated information. Additional resources can be obtained from our Wiki page (www.eSecuTech.com/wiki).

• Please read the Readme file located in the root directory of the SDK (SDK/Readme.txt) for information on usage and further development.

• Please read the tool-specific Readme file located in each tool-specific directory before use.

• Console and Monitor tools in the SDK is needed for use. The Partition tool (only for UniMate Drive) is designed to run without the need to be installed on your OS.

• For technical assistance, email (Support@eSecuTech.com) or by opening a ticket at (www.eSecuTech.com/support).

• UniMate requires the installation of the PKI package to operate on a computer.

Preparation

For computer:

•Install the PKI package onto your computer.

•Connect the UniMate to the computer with the Micro to USB Type A cable provided. The UniMate device is ready when the LED light is on and the UniMate Monitor tool detects the UniMate.

•To access the UniMate, input the PIN code, the default Admin PIN is “00000000”, the default User PIN is “11111111”, without quotation marks.

For the mobile device:

•Download and install the UniMate app.

•Connect a charged UniMate to the mobile device via the audio port and access it within the UniMate app.

Secure Mobile Payment Solution

Mobile devices equipped with UniMate two-factor authentication can safeguard sensitive data from malicious attacks. User verification, cryptographic, offline authorization can be performed by UniMate technology and customers can buy anything at any time and place. All critical security data is stored on the UniMate, instead of on the mobile device and cannot be accessed, significantly thwarting attempts to siphon data .

PKI technology requires a digital certificate and the correct password for the corresponding digital certificate to be entered by the user to complete a transaction. Storing these digital certificates on a UniMate as a second-factor token separate from the mobile device effectively reduces the potential risk of security breaches from malware and man-in-the-middle attacks, as digital certificates stored on the token cannot be exported or otherwise accessed without the appropriate credentials.

Benefits of UniMate

As the mobile platform grows in popularity and in functionality, smart mobile devices will become progressively more mainstream, and with the advent of 4G network connectivity, mobile devices are becoming an ever-increasing integral part of our digital lives. Along with this increased dependence and trust put into mobile devices, so too will the need to protect sensitive and confidential data on our devices. To provide improved security with this new trend in technology, proven methods of protection must be applied.

UniMate brings two factor authentications to the mobile platform by using a knowledge factor, the password, and a possession factor, the UniMate Device. Comparatively, without UniMate, a sole password can be susceptible to many different security concerns, but with UniMate’s hardware encryption capabilities and permission system and attacks are drastically impeded. Arming yourself with the UniMate will ensure that your data and interests are safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is UniMate?

UniMate is SecuTech's mobile authentication product family focusing on secure transaction authentication and platform inter-changeability by employing two-factor authentication.

How does UniMate work?

UniMate authentication utilises PKI technology, where certificates are securely stored within the UniMate device and are inaccessible without the appropriate permissions to interact with the device.The TRRS audio port found on most mobile devices is used for secure communication during use of the device, in addition to providing a micro USB interface for use and configuration on the desktop platform.

What is PKI?

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a set of hardware, software, people, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates.

What is the default PIN?

The default Admin PIN is eight zeros, or "00000000", the default User PIN is eight ones, or "11111111", without quotation marks.

Why use UniMate?

Using UniMate is safer than using a static password alone, as authentication requires two factors. The first is the physical UniMate device itself, which contains the digital certificate used during the authentication process. The second factor is the password to log onto the UniMate device before beginning the transaction process. Adding these factors into the authentication process make it substantially more difficult to gain unauthorised access than compared to only one factor, such as a static password.

What should I do if my UniMate is locked?

If the user account associated with your UniMate device is locked, please contact the administrator to unlock your user account.
