Wisekey intègre la technologie blockchain à ses solutions de cryptage


La société de cybersécurité Wisekey intègre désormais la technologie dite "blockchain" à ses solutions de cryptage WISeID. Dans le cadre de cette intégration, Wisekey lancera une nouvelle édition de son application d'identification numérique et de cyberdéfense, selon un communiqué publié mardi.



La technologie des chaînes de blocs utilise des protocoles décentralisés pour gérer les bases de données. D'ici à 2030, chacun disposera d'une identité numérique légale, qui devra protéger des données comme des mots de passes, des comptes, des numéros de cartes de crédit et autres, écrit la société.

WISeKey (WIHN.SW) WISeID BlockChain Platform in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals to Provide Every Person on the Planet with a Legal Digital Identity by 2030

WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey”, SIX: WIHN), a leading cybersecurity company announced today the release of a special edition of the Digital Identification and cyber-resilience app, WISeID integrating Blockchain technology. WISeID acts as a dual factor authentication technology that sits on top of a BlockChain. The WISeIDBlockChain is constantly growing as new blocks are added to it with a new set of recordings. Each WISeID node gets a copy of the WISeIDBlockChain and gets downloaded automatically upon joining the WISeID network.

At the heart of this platform is the OISTE-WISeKey Cryptographic Root of Trust which has been actively used since 1999 by over 2.6 billion desktop, browsers, mobile devices, SSL certificates and Internet of Things’ devices. The OISTE WISeKey Cryptographic Root of Trust is ubiquitous and universal, and a pioneer in the creation of Digital Identities. OISTE and WISeKey in cooperation with the Clinton Global Initiative started this project back in 2007 with the objective to issue 1 billion identities to poor people https://www.clintonfoundation.org/clinton-global-initiative/commitments/increasing-digital-connectivity-poor as one-fifth of the world’s population ‒ 1.5 billion people have no proper legal identification, and 50 million children are born every year without a birth certificate and legal identity. This means that these people are off the radar for vital economic services, including such as education and healthcare. This new WISeIDBlockChain platform integrates state-of-the-art technologies related to Digital Identity and BlockChain which are in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals aiming on providing every person on the planet with a solid and tamper-proof digital identity based on common, interoperable standards by 2030. As a first step, the United Nation is seeking to develop scalable identity systems by 2020. This initiative was launched at the inaugural “ID2020 Summit ‒ Harnessing Digital Identity for the Global Community,” held at the United Nations headquarters in New York on May 20, 2016.

The WISeIDBlockChainoperates with the WISeID Kaspersky Lab Security cyber-resilience edition that uses the digital identification to lock personal data such as account usernames and passwords, credit card numbers and access PINs into a secure personal data organizer, creating accountable identities for online activity while the data itself remains protected in a secure cloud vault.

Mobile security threats are increasing in number and sophistication, with hackers looking for sophisticated ways to hijack mobiles for Bitcoin mining, or to trick mobile users into giving up their personal identity and bank account information. Even though mobile operating systems provide app developers with significant security features, hackers have still been able to exploit the massive installed base of Android and iOS devices, using many different infection vectors to place malware.

Without mobile security software, users are vulnerable to all these threats and more. The WISeID Kaspersky Mobile Security SDK includes a robust and proven solution for protecting mobile phones against security threats. The SDK’s inclusion in the app delivers advanced security features like web & network protection, device protection and risk detection to smartphones, offering users an effective layer of self-defense.

Among other things, WISeID keeps passwords in an encrypted vault, generates hard-to-crack passwords, and safely synchronizes data between computers and devices on multiple platforms, using secure cloud storage. The vault can be unlocked only with the user’s Master Password and/or defined pattern, with additional protection provided through facial recognition authentication. WISeID can be accessed online though a single click.

DOWNLOAD: WISeID Kaspersky Lab Security with built-in Kaspersky Mobile Security SDK is available now for iPhone, iPad, Android,Mac OSX, Windows and Kindle, or directly on our website wiseid.com

WISeKey (SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN) is a leading cybersecurity company and selected as a World Economic Forum Global Growth Company. WISeKey is currently deploying large scale Internet of Things (“IoT”) digital identity ecosystems and has become a pioneer of the “4th Industrial Revolution” movement launched this year at the World Economic Forum in Davos. WISeKey’s Swiss based cryptographic Root of Trust (“RoT”) integrates wearable technology with secure authentication and identification, in both physical and virtual environments, and empowers IoT and wearable devices to become secure transactional devices. The RoT serves as a common trust anchor, which is recognized by the operating system and applications, to ensure the authenticity, confidentiality and integrity of on-line transactions. With the cryptographic RoT embedded on the device, the IoT product manufacturers can use code-signing certificates and a cloud-based signature as a service to secure interactions among objects and between objects and people. WISeKey has patented this process in the USA as it is currently used by many IoT providers.
