Application: Passkey integration techniques for identity management (Patent ID: US20240073024A1)

The patent filed by Okta Inc. describes methods, systems, devices, and apparatuses for passkey authentication at an identity management platform. The techniques involve enabling passkey authentication for clients, displaying a passkey login option to users, generating a passkey with a private and public key on the user's device, and using the public key for user identity verification during login attempts. The process includes cryptographic challenges, digital signatures, and verifying access to a private key through various user authentication procedures like facial recognition, voice recognition, or fingerprint recognition.

Furthermore, the patent details the steps for configuring and storing public keys, determining device support for passkey authentication, and associating public keys with user identifiers, passwords, or account numbers. The apparatus for passkey authentication includes a processor, memory, and instructions to receive indications from administrators, display login options for clients, obtain public keys, and authenticate user identities using the public key. The non-transitory computer-readable medium stores code for enabling passkey authentication, transmitting cryptographic challenges, receiving cryptographic responses, and authenticating users based on verifying digital signatures with the public key. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive system for secure and user-friendly passkey authentication within an identity management platform.
