About Natural Security Alliance
Natural Security Alliance is an international association of retailers, financial and payment institutions, and service, solution and equipment providers. These actors are all motivated by the same desire to accelerate the development and adoption of solutions built on the Natural Security standard. This standard makes it possible to securely pay for and access services, and have the same user experience, online and in local stores.
The strong authentication defined by the Natural Security standard relies on biometrics combined with a personal device (e.g. chip card, mobile phone, dedicated device, SIM card, microSD card). It protects authentication data, data communication during the transaction and the biometrics linking the personal device to its owner.
