Access B2C or B2B apis with out prompting user to provide credentials

We have requirement where a end user over voice call will get to know his account balance.

  • We started with B2C apis and work as expected interactively using oAuth2 - Authorization code protocol
  • Apparently, as giving input password / username via voice is not possible over voice, we are exploring the feasibility of back channel authorization like oAuth2- Client credentials
  • We will ensure user authorizes by other checks like 2Factor etc.

Questions:

  1. Does B2C apis provide such back channel authorization like oAuth2- Client credentials or RSA key based or any similar flavors
  2. We learnt B2B does provide, how ever, we could not able to find test data like customerId, accountId or iBan value etc.


Request Finestra team provide some guidance

Please let me know if any more info is needed.

Thanks in advance.

An OAuth2 client credentials flow can be made using the B2B channel credentials of your FFDC App.
Regarding the missing test data, can you please provide the API you are using ?

Can you provide some documentation on how this is done? I seem to be able to use client id and client secret to access B2B API's in my app - but not B2C

The authentication mechanism is based on Oauth2 . This mechanism does not prescribe any Authentication mechanism. For our sandbox we defaulted to the most traditional one display a login / password screen. but we could have put in place a more secure one 2 factor via SMS, biometrics identification (finger print, faceId ... or voice !)
This user Authentication would be driven by our customer , they host the Identity provider.
That said if you are partnering already with a Biometric Voice Identity provider, we would be please to work with them .
