Authentication Overview


Authentication occurs when there is a need to verify the identity of a user in order to run or complete an action. This helps to keep users’ information private and secure, especially in scenarios where devices may be shared amongst users.

Types of Authentication

Basic Authentication

Basic authentication consists of passcode/login variations which are highly customizable. To learn more, see Basic Authentication

Biometric Authentication

Biometric authentication refers to technologies that can be used to detect and recognize certain human physical features for security authorizations. Apple supports Face ID and Touch ID as convenient and secure biometric authentication methods – and by extension so does Fiori for iOS. To learn more, see Biometric Authentication

Signature Capture

Signature capture allows users to input their signature by signing on the screen. The signature is captured and saved in the backend with a watermark. To learn more, see Signature Capture
