英国一家公司开发了一种新型的便于用户记忆的认证方法,同时可生成一次性安全代码。该技术无需硬件设施,可广泛用于银行、保险、电子商务等领域的用户认证。拟以许可协议的形式寻找感兴趣的合作伙伴。

A UK company has developed an authentication method that is easy for users to memorise whilst generating one-time codes and being extremely secure. It is also hardware-free and easy to roll out for authentication solutions developers and users in sectors such as banking, insurance, e-commerce. Businesses are sought for license agreements.

 

Description     

 

We all know the problems with passwords. Users dislike being forced to keep creating new ones, and unfortunately, hackers manage to get hold of passwords – which allows them to impersonate the user. The service providers sometimes get hacked.

 

On the other hand, biometric identification has not taken off properly due to civil liberties and reliability issues.

 

The key-fobs that generate one-time codes are good but they are dependent on additional pieces of hardware being carried, introducing additional cost and inconvenience. Also their “keys” have to be stored in a global database such as RSA’s that was hacked in 2011 leading US defence contractor Lockheed Martin to blame RSA for a subsequent break-in.

 

A young East of England company has developed an entirely hardware-less system that combines the convenience of a mentally-held secret (users’ create a pattern or shape when enrolling) with the strength of key-fobs, which are able to provide different codes every time they need to log in, be authenticated or provide their authorisation to perform an action.

 

The picture shows a matrix (which would be displayed on the user’s screen) filled with random numbers. Using their mental pattern, the user is able to read off a new code. The system is secure against  shoulder-surfing or other threats.

The next time, the numbers in the matrix will be different, but using the same pattern, the user is able to create or extract a different code. A user may use a single pattern for all the different sites or accounts he needs to access – or he/she may choose to have different ones. The pattern and the software have the potential to replace all fixed passwords, PINs, credit/debit card PINs and other authorisation codes. It is also possible to combine it with biometrics.

 

Type and Role of Partner Sought    

 

Type of partner sought: industry

Specific area of activity: finance, insurance, e-commerce

Role of partner sought: to implement the APIs under license.
