What is SafeLogin?
SafeLogin is a password solution for your login. SafeLogin is easy to use, simple to remember and more secure than the text-password that has been the cause of multiple data and account losses that you will have seen in the media.
SafeLogin works by displaying a one-time keypad to the user when accessing a system. By using a set of pictures in a keypad as buttons, and a user configured background, there is protection against a large number of the common attack vectors faced by a login system. The SafeLogin product is agile and customisable, you decide on the images for buttons and the images used for the background – keeping a consistent design and brand feel to your users experience.
“Pictures paint a thousand words” in the case of SafeLogin, this is very true! Click play on the short video below to see a keypad being used to login.
Authenticating with SafeLogin couldn’t be easier, first enter your username as normal, then your keypad is displayed for you to select your sequence of images and click login.
Every time you login, you will see the same images, creating a familiar snapshot of your keypad – even the buttons that you don’t use in your password become important to the user, creating a login system with a high level of phishing protection.
How does this protect my users?
This is where we start to get a little technical. Your users are never transmitting the actual password via the internet, this is decoded from the SafeLogin server by your system. In the video above the first part of the password the user has chosen is the image of a dog. In this session, that is displayed at position 0, so the user is transmitting they clicked 0, the 2nd image in the password is the horse – position 1. The entire string sent as the “password” in this video would be 0,1,7,8. The next time the user came to the site, the images are in different positions on the keypad and the transmitted “POST” data would be different – for every login.
SafeLogin patents for the transmission of data protect the user and the system.
If you want to know more, get in touch and we will be happy to explain how the entire process flow continues to convert the user “clicks” into a secure and safe method of user login.
The Even More Technical Bit
SafeLogin uses HTTP API methods to communicate with your login system. In our experience the protection afforded by the patented technology and the optimised API process has given some outstanding results in our deployments. Typically completing a test deployment in under 24 hours once we allow access to our servers and integration document. It is then the fun starts, creating your brand specific keypads and allowing users to personalise the login experience while maintaining your brand integrity.
