The 1Kosmos Block ID Password Reset Advantage

1Kosmos is the only standards-based platform that uses advanced biometrics and a private blockchain to create an indisputable, reusable identity for strong and continuous authentication and a passwordless experience. But, we understand that in some instances, applications and services cannot support a passwordless experience. So, in this case, a password is still required. Recognizing that fact, 1Kosmos BlockID has an integrated password reset capability that eliminates the need for any assistance from the helpdesk. Through the 1Kosmos BlockID app or user portal, users can easily reset their passwords if and when needed. Integrating a password reset into our technology helps organizations deploy a strong and continuous authentication platform and meet the requirements of a username and password. The password reset also eliminates any password reset calls into the help desk, saving both user frustration and cost.

By implementing 1Kosmos BlockID as the IdP, organizations will have a unified approach to access management by combining 2FA, MFA, and password resets into one common platform.

Implementation

As the IDP, 1Kosmos BlockID integrates into AD or an Enterprise LDAP identity store to be the single source of truth for all managed identities. In doing so, users only authenticate through 1Kosmos BlockID. Additionally, managed applications that are compatible with a passwordless experience are set to only accept the authentication through 1Kosmos BlockID, eliminating passwords for these technologies.

Resetting Passwords

For applications where you can not eliminate passwords, users can reset their password through the BlockID app. During initial identity enrollment, users pair their device to their identity on the mobile app. The same trusted device can be used during a password reset.

Alternatively, users can also use the admin portal to reset their password.
A password reset is completed by selecting the corresponding user account and selecting the reset password link. Users will follow the prompts to reset their password.
