It’s Me!

“Leading the Next Generation of User Verification”

Winner – Cyber Security / IA category

“Most Innovative Security Products & Services Competition”

As can be evidence by today’s headlines, user verification is perhaps the greatest challenge to e-commerce security. In recent years there have been a number of new technologies developed to make verification more secure, yet they are often too difficult for everyday users to incorporate effectively, too costly to install and maintain or too limited in their scope of use to be used pervasively.

It’s Me! is a unique (patented) User Authorization system that uses a process of pattern recognition against a table of random numbers and logical or arithmetic functions to provide users with One-Time Passcodes (OTP) at each login event. Our system provides extremely high levels of verification security and requires hackers to witness numerous login events including both the reference table and the user response in order to begin to determine the code.

Studies at top universities as well as real user experience have shown that users find It’s Me! to be easier to remember, and more enjoyable to use than passwords or PINs.

It’s Me! is totally software based which means that it can be used anywhere that passwords, PINs or any other devices are used. In fact it can be easily incorporated in all electronic security systems from computer systems to electronic doors to banking systems or any electronic system that requires protection. It also means that there are no expensive add-ons like hardware or fobs to buy, maintain or replace when lost or stolen.

At long last there is a user verification product that offers the highest levels of security, is easy to use and can be cost effectively implemented on almost any platform, It’s Me!.

QuintessenceLabs Pty Ltd

QuintessenceLabs Pty Ltd, a private company founded in 2006 based on research at the Australian National University, has developed link encryption and key management products using quantum key distribution (QKD) and supporting the one-time pad cipher.

Virtually all currently deployed cryptographic systems use algorithms and protocols whose security is dependent on one or more of the following assumptions:

  • Efficient mathematical attacks will never be feasible; e.g. efficient factorisation algorithms will never be developed;
  • Computing resources will never be sufficiently powerful for brute force or algorithmic attacks;
  • Public key infrastructure will always be secure from attack;
  • New technology, such as quantum computing, will never be developed to sufficient scale to support efficient operation of factorisation (or similar) algorithms.

QuintessenceLabs’ products demonstrate security technology that can be used now, and in tomorrow’s networks.

The QLE-1 link encryptor securely interconnects Ethernet networks over IP networks. Security over the WAN

is provided by the information-theoretic secure one-time pad cipher.

The QKM-1 key manager securely distributes key material over passive optical networks using continuous variable quantum key distribution technology developed by the QuintessenceLabs’ team. A quantum random number generator provides a true random source of raw key material.

The system dynamically adjusts operational parameters to maintain security of key material in the presence of an eavesdropper on the network. Eavesdropping activity results in variations of the quantum statistics of the transmission – revealing the presence of the eavesdropper. This novel capability is not possible with conventional systems.

Unlike conventional cryptographic infrastructure, QuintessenceLabs’ products do not require regular re-keying, do not rely on a PKI, and do not place trust in any third party entity or infrastructure for the secure delivery and management of key material.

External interfaces of QuintessenceLabs’ products are standards based, allowing interoperation with legacy devices and management systems.

Company Objective: Seek qualified organisations to participate in quantum communications projects. Project objectives include:

  • Experience deploying and using Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) technology to protect critical information assets;
  • Demonstration of higher security alternatives to existing infrastructure;
  • Showing that QKD is practical today; and,
  • Giving early access to QKD products.

SALT Ltd

SALT Ltd is a spin-out company from the UK MoD and specialises in the design and production of underwater sonar markers. These inexpensive markers are used to mark cables, pipes and any subsurface equipment supporting both military and commercial markets. The SonarBell™ is a unique device; it is completely passive and has no moving parts or batteries. It is inert and has no environmental impact and provides a long term marker for all the major off-shore industries

Having spent years reducing underwater sonar signatures to support Royal Navy ships and submarines, we turned our knowledge on its head to develop a passive device that was “as loud as possible” when exposed to an incoming signal and the SonarBell™ concept was borne. For locating and marking assets underwater both private and public sectors had always used corner reflectors and acoustic transponders to mark and locate underwater assets on the seabed. The disadvantage of the corner reflectors is that when trying to locate an asset on the sonar screen they are very ‘glinty’ and because of this they appear and disappear. They are very heavy and difficult to handle when deployed and recovered. Whereas the SonarBell™, because it is Omni-directional, it means that it can be located easily, it is lighter and therefore easier to handle. Transponders are powered by batteries and therefore require a regular battery replacement cycle, whereas the SonarBell™ is inert, stable and completely passive and requires no maintenance.

SonarBell™ operates by focusing and reflecting sound energy, much as a lens or mirror can focus light and just like a lens or mirror, SonarBell™ is a completely passive device. By focusing and re-radiating the sound energy back in the direction from where it came, a 200mm SonarBell™ can deliver the same sonar target strength as a 2m diameter metal sphere.

Spark Integration

Spark Integration’s software suite consists of a secure, unobtrusive, publish/subscribe messaging framework together with engineer-centric development tools to substantially simplify the creation of complex electronic systems using distributed system development methods. The framework is highly robust, with extremely low latency capability and very low impacts on processing power, network traffic and energy resources. It is designed to scale from 4-bit microcontrollers to 64-bit processors and across very complex interconnected systems.

System Builder, Spark’s development toolkit, supports engineers building to requirement specifications and within real operational constraints such as platform, connection reliability, quality of service, and timeliness. System Builder allows engineers to focus on the functional logic of the system rather than having to deal with low-level instruction sets that must be modified whenever implementation parameters change.

DIOS, Spark’s messaging framework, deals with exchange of data across software, operating system, hardware, and communication protocols and manages environmental issues that complicate interoperability. It also enables systems to behave dynamically, allowing hardware components to be interchanged and new functionality to be introduced over secure connections, even during operation.

  • Spark products are designed to work in many different scenarios:
  • Simplifying communication between components in integrated device networks
  • Integrating with control and communications systems to support rapid, reliable information exchange and aggregation
  • Extending service oriented architectures (SOAs) and enterprise service buses (ESBs) into the physical world by enabling the integration of enterprise applications with sensors and other devices.

Spark works with firms building communications and unmanned systems solutions where requirements include intra-system links (sensors and other devices within a specific system), inter-system communication (collaboration between different systems and remote control of sensors) and the integration of multiple systems, central control and data processing systems in powerful ‘systems of systems’ to serve complex mission requirements.
