The cybersecurity of personal data is the main task for the Authorizer.io
To protect user accounts the blockchain-service Authorizer.io created by the developers of the three projects HashCoins, Aspanta and Emercoin will help.
Not to carry large sums of money not to wear bright expensive jewelry, not to walk around at night in deserted places, not to forget to lock the front door and not to talk about plans for long trips — these are simple rules for those who do not want to become a victim of robbers. Today’s reality is that we need to add another tip. It is to monitor the safety of access to accounts in cyberspace. Information technology attracts more and more attention from not only ordinary users, but also criminals.
According to the published results of the world Index of criticality data breaches (Breach Level Index the BLI), in 2016, it was publicly recorded that there were 1792 serious data breaches, which were stolen or 1.4 billion data records lost. This is 86% higher than in 2015. The most common type is the theft of personal access credentials — they accounted for 59% of all leaks in 2016.
To protect user accounts the blockchain-service Authorizer.io created by the developers of the three projects HashCoins, Aspanta and Emercoin will help. The service is outdoor and not for profit. Its main task — to reduce the risks of password interception. To help in this will be the technology of the blockchain. How can the blockchain protect access to accounts? This uses user certificates which are recorded in the Emercoin blockchain. In practice it looks so: the owner of the site integrates a system of authorization Authorizer.io and users of the site do not need to enter a password. No password — no risk that it would be stolen.
Instead of a password, the site will be available to read on the computer user certificate that is stored in the blockchain, and thus is unchanging and cannot be tampered with and modified. Information about custom EmerSSL certificates and virtual cards also can’t be stolen because it is stored in the blockchain in an encrypted form. The service can be integrated for free. It has no restrictions on theme browser and can be used on any device, including smartphones and tablets.
