Canberra-based secure sovereign cloud provider for government and critical infrastructure Vault Cloud and identity access management start-up Daltrey have announced what they claim in the country's first biometric solution that would enable authentication across all access scenarios.

In a statement, Vault said the two companies were "building a secure ecosystem that protects physical and digital locations as well as the biometric data that enables access to them".

Blair Crawford, co-founder and managing director of Daltrey, said: “There’s a growing need for more secure, seamless and convenient authentication spanning both physical and digital access scenarios.

“This partnership allows for an innovative identity-defined approach to organisational security, helping government and corporate enterprises create secure, productive workplaces.”

The statement said the Daltrey platform allowed users to create a unified biometric credential that gave them access to assigned physical locations and digital applications.

By offering biometrics-as-a-service, the collaboration allowed corporate and government leaders to solve their most pressing security, safety and compliance challenges in a simple, cost-effective way.

Vault’s secure data storage solution will be used to store valuable personally identifiable information, including biometric data such as faces, irises and fingerprints on Australian shores.

"All Vault data is protected by security-cleared Australian citizens to ensure the highest level security of Australia’s personal information," the company emphasised.

Vault chief executive Rupert Taylor-Price said: “Access and authentication is a continued concern for government and corporate entities with certain security requirements

“Biometric identity access will provide a robust, secure solution that is backed by the sovereign capabilities of our partnership. It represents an important step in protecting Australian citizens and organisations.”

The two companies will also provide an intelligent middleware platform that integrates with existing access management providers. The secure biometrics-as-a-service solution will be offered to Australian business and government organisations irrespective of the service provider they use.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
