Single authentication for 4.7 millions of beneficiaries
With 11+ millions subscriptions, Canal+ Group is a major player in the programming and distribution of pay TV offerings in France. It is a pioneer in new television practices and a precursor of both High Definition via satellite and mobile TV development. Canal+ Group is both a producer of premium and specialty pay TV channels and a distributor of premium and multi-channel offerings in France and abroad.
Canal+ Group provides a dozen of Web sites for the general public (www.canalplus.fr, www.canalsat.fr, client.canal.fr, www.canalplay.com, etc.) with services and contents for both subscribers and non- subscribers.
In order to support its strategic business needs, Canal+ Group wants to upgrade the authentication and registration service for all the sites on its Internet platform. The current system is outdated and it is becoming more and more complex to integrate new technologies that meet consumer uses.
In this context, the ISD launched the P@SS project in 2011 (in other words, a platform for easy and secure access).
