The Kiel start-up company Hanko.io wants to offer developers an easy-to-implement method to integrate password-free identity and access management (IAM) into any application – from desktop to mobile apps to browsers.

Hanko relies on the OpenID Connect and OAuth2 standards for authentication and authorization.

The SaaS should be adaptable to individual requirements in just a few steps. Thanks to a test account that is not limited in time, interested parties have the opportunity to familiarize themselves extensively with the service.
