The Authentication & Authorization teamis a development team composed of product definition analysts and software developers.
This team is part of System and Application Security department and is in charge of two main components:
· For user authentication : the Logon and Security Server (LSS)
This component has two parts: a front-end application (login panel, identity federation) and a back-end application (authentication services across multiple channels). It is accessed 24/7 by users around the globe and sustains a very high traffic (17k tps at peak).
· For user authorization : the middleware authorization framework
The framework aims at verifying access rights on application side. On one side, an engine extracts authorization data from LSS database and distributes it across thousands of application servers. On the other side, software libraries are delivered to application development teams to perform authorization check against this data,and to protect sensitive information.
Both components form a comprehensivemiddle-waresolution allowing to secure Amadeus applications .
The purpose of this internship is to participate inenriching the portfolio of the Logon and Security Server (responsible for the user authentication process) with fingerprint based authentication .
Among biometric authentication technologies, fingerprint based authenticationshows number of benefits in term of accuracy, acceptance, andeasiness of implementation which makes it particularly attractive. This kind of technology is getting more and more adoption on mobile especially smartphones, and is subject to a standardization effort among IT companies.
The goal of this internship would be to help the team tobuild a proof of concept of integration of this technology in our Logon and Security Server.
It includes a first assessment of the possible architecture (FIDO or other ?), then the development of a prototype involving Front-end(Mobile/Web)and Back-end development (C++/Oracle).
