DNA fingerprinting for access control in banking

Torotech : 08 July, 2008  (New Product)
Digital DNA mapping provides solution to the prevention of fraud and identity theft in the banking industry with new technology from Torotech
UK security integrator, Torotech, has become the first security specialist to offer the UK banking industry digital DNA mapping technologies that add state of the art secured access web security for home users accessing their accounts on line.

Financial institutions that adopt the new digital DNA mapping technology will be able to restrict online access by taking a fingerprint of the customer's home computer when they join the service and every time they log on to the system it will compare the digital DNA profile of the computer that is trying to connect against the stored profile.

The technology adds digital recognition of one hardware component to the user authentication process and can be the PC of the user or any wired or wireless peripheral such as a USB stick, mobile phone or PDA.

Commenting on the launch, David Hawksworth, managing director of Torotech said; "There are a number of solutions that have recently been adopted by the UK banking industry to reduce the chances of online theft but these rely on standard passwords/username access or via smartcards, tokens or readers. The current technology can easily be lost or stolen and passwords are often not as secure as they should be. In addition the costs of administering and maintaining such solutions can be very high.

"Digital DNA is so unique, like our own DNA, that it is impossible to duplicate and therefore can be used to protect personal data and financial information to a much higher level than ever before. With other systems there is danger of compromise either by password stealing or loss of the authentication device but with our integrated approach to security online theft could be a thing of the past."

The digital DNA applications from Torotech utilise technologies developed by Mobilegov which are currently being reviewed by a number of European banks and financial services providers. In addition to banking online retailers and remote working businesses where data security and access can be compromised by hackers can also use the technology.

To compliment the integration of the secured access web technology with their solutions, Torotech will also be promoting a new range of low cost security solutions that restrict the use of unknown devices such as USB sticks and portable hard disks being plugged into a network.
