The introduction of smartphones in everyday life is a fact, developed countries have more mobile phones than population (the number of mobile phones in the world is more than 5 billion) which suggests that the smartphone will be a common complement for most people in the coming years. The management of the method of access to applications, either web or otherwise, continues to reside in passwords and on the other hand, the most common way for criminals to obtain them is by using vulnerabilities in the servers that store them or through social engineering.
In this context, a Spanish start-up born in 2017, has developed an application to store, in a secure way, in the user's smartphone all his passwords, without storing them in any centralized server, and avoid that the user has to remember or write them. It is designed to store in a safe manner the set user/pass in the mobile device and, be able to share (an encrypted version) with clients credentials, which are at a remote level.
It has a protocol for exchanging credentials that allows to easily and immediately transfer keys to the target service. The user has a master-password that defines a protocol to exchange encrypted versions of this passwords to be consumed by clients. The protocol rely on external servers that act as intermediary for exchanges and are unable to recover the full password.
The application is available in 8 languages: Spanish, English, German, French, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese. The current version has applications for iOS, Android, as well as extensions for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Edge and libraries for use in any web and WordPress plug-in along with native applications for Windows, Mac and Linux.
The company is looking for international ICT integrators willing to cooperate under license agreement.
