Want to use two-factor authentication but without the cost of hardware tokens, user training and complex deployments?
Wish you could get rid of your username / password vulnerabilities, the expense of password management systems and sleep well at night?
Get it all with M-Pin.
What is M-Pin?
M-Pin™ Strong Authentication System enables true two-factor authentication for web sites and applications, based on the open source M-Pin™ Authentication Server and M-Pin™ Managed Service.
The M-Pin™ Managed Service is a highly available, fault tolerant software as a service that issues cryptographic secrets to M-Pin™ Authentication Servers and Clients. The M-Pin™ Authentication Server uses just one leak-proof cryptographic key, and can't reveal any information about your users such as identity or login details, even if the key is compromised. The M-Pin Client is an HTML5 browser, so developers can easily integrate M-Pin into their websites and applications, enabling frictionless two-factor authentication and removing all username / password vulnerabilities.
Why is it different?
M-Pin represents a completely rethought approach to how application developers and enterprises deliver authentication to their end users. Here are some of its unique qualities:
- It delivers true two-factor authentication using strong elliptic curve cryptography and identity-based encryption, highly optimized for the web
- It enables users to authenticate using a simple, ATM machine UI pin pad, rather than a username and password. Infinitely easier – but also infinitely more secure – than username and password
- M-Pin Authentication Servers never store any identity information about users, so there are no vulnerable username / password databases to hack or steal
- It is ideal for use in low-powered or constrained environments, thanks to its underlying MIRACL-based code
- It uses any unique identifier you supply to strongly authenticate anyone or anything to your application or service
- The M-Pin Protocol can easily be extended to include additional factors of authentication such as biometrics and device fingerprints
- It requires no additional client software or hardware – just an HTML5 browser on any device
- Using the open source C Client Library, you can embed the M-Pin Protocol into any client / server application
