VIBE is an acronym for Verifiable Identity Based Encryption.
It is certificate-less and disrupts popular authentication and key exchange protocols.
If you have an application or service offering that you are seeking to secure, let’s start a conversation.
Fundamental to data security is the ability to verify users, devices, and data as authentic – that their identities and content have not been compromised.
Globally-connected and diverse public Clouds, private servers, big data warehouses, third-party software platforms make user and data authentication crucial. Traditional encryption, like that of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), is costly, inflexible, slow, and strewn with inherent vulnerabilities that make it unusable in our 21st century digital world. By design, VIBE is made for today’s dispersed, interconnected, high-speed virtual world.
VIBE’s certificate-less user and data authenticated encryption technology ensures scalability, dynamic key exchange, and other advanced cryptographic functions using identity-based elliptic curve cryptosystems (ECC). VIBE eliminates the need for costly, cumbersome PKI. It is perfectly suited to secure Applications, Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), Collaboration platforms, Blockchain, FinTech systems, Email, V2V, V2X, Smart City and virtually every other connected solution that is in need of ironclad authentication and encryption.
VIBE is not a solution. It is a cryptographic ingredient that can be embedded in your connected products, services and solutions, with applicability in virtually every industry.
The Cloud is becoming increasingly pervasive as businesses, large and small, and governments at all levels are migrating applications to the Cloud. Cloud security, however, is an ongoing issue, one exacerbated by the emergence of Edge and Fog computing technology designed to better accommodate the massive number of devices connected to the Cloud. The unique nature of the VIBE cryptographic schemas is that it can easily and successfully secure all elements of the Cloud, and the myriad applications it enables, as VIBE authenticates at the application level – from the Edge to the Core. This renders VIBE an ideal security solution for governments and enterprises, particularly those that use third-party services and applications for internal communication, data storage and computing resources. With VIBE, organizations can host their own Trusted Centres to issue private keys to secure all communications, and to fully protect their intellectual property.
Cloud applications that VIBE can more effectively secure include:
VIBE-enabled Cloud solutions easily and economically scale to any level, and deliver security at a level unparalleled in the industry.
Commonly devices rely on semiconductors as a part of their functionality and increasingly, these products are able to communicate with each other through the Internet. There are very few security standards within the IoT and yet millions of devices are being deployed daily with no embedded security. Dated security approaches such as PKI are overly complex to set up and manage, are highly vulnerable to outside threats, are costly and cannot scale.
Mobile and Blockchain developers can deploy VIBE to provide secure authentication of users and or/transaction, and to economically and seamlessly handle key exchange requirements. Its certificate-less feature and peer-to- peer functionality make it a perfect security ingredient for e-banking solutions and so much more.
VIBE is “Social by Design” meaning that organizations can set up Trusted Centres (TC) wherein only users or devices registered as members of the TC can communicate with one another. Typically, a TC would be housed in a Hardware Security Module (HSM). Members of one TC can communicate with members of another TC on a permissions/rules basis. Once set up, the TC can be taken offline eliminating the threat of the TC being hacked.
As a use case, an Enterprise like a bank might register all its email users in one TC, and have its clients register in another. With permission, the only email communication that could occur would be from registered or authenticated users. Attempts by outside parties to “phish” within the company’s digital waters would be automatically thwarted as the intended recipient would never receive the nefarious communication.
With decades of IT/Cyber experience, our leadership team is working to make VIBE the global standard for secure communications.
