Digital DNA secures online identities
Torotech has introduced what it claims is the first digital DNA mapping technology to protect the identities and security of users accessing bank accounts or shopping online.
Financial institutions that adopt the new digital DNA mapping technology will be able to control security and online access by taking the DNA of the customer’s computing device – the device’s unique construction of chipset, disk drive, motherboard, DVD drive, screen, keyboard, serial numbers etc – when users sign up for online services.
Every time the user logs in to the system it will compare the digital DNA profile of the computer that is trying to connect, against the stored profile and user ID. If the DNA does not match, access is denied.
The technology adds digital recognition of one hardware component to the user authentication process and can be the PC of the user, or any wired or wireless peripheral such as a USB stick, mobile phone or PDA.
