The HOYOS Communicator Smartphone represents the successful engineering of a unique security platform starting with the integration of Green Hills™ Software's INTEGRITY-178™ OS. Green Hills Software is the only company in the world to build an Operating System that has recieved the NSA's highest certification level (EAL 6+). INTEGRITY-178 is purpose built from the ground up for safety, reliability and security. As part of its pedigree history, Green Hills Software has developed secure Operating Systems with no detectable vulnerabilities. This Operating System is similar to the Operating Systems used in devices and technology such as military vehicles, civilian aircraft, automobiles, and private and supervisory control devices for over the past 18 years.
On the market today, there are various methods and vendors of touchless fingerprint biometrics that scan multiple fingers on one hand at once. Our biometric solution, DEDOS™, is based on a proven 3D image aquisition technology that binds the User’s Identity with their biometrics. DEDOS™ provides a much more secure biometric authentication by utilizing the capabilities of a smartphone device, in day or night, indoors or outdoors.
The IEEE2410 Standard, a standard based on a protocol invented by our founder Hector Hoyos while he was Chairman, CEO, and founder of Hoyos Labs (today known as VeridiumID), is an end-to-end specification describing the standards necessary to perform server-based enhanced biometric security on a client device. It comprises a set of rules that govern secure communications and the management of biometric data among a variety of client devices, including mobile phones and computers. IEEE2410 Standard is how we make sure that authenticating is not only convenient, but extremely secure. We don’t store any user information on our server; instead, everything is stored exclusively on the users mobile devices, giving them total control of their digital identity. IEEE2410 Standard was adopted by the International Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and now represents the global standard for biometrics security. IEEE2410 Standard uses a 2-way SSL Secure Connection with 571 bit ECC TLS (Elliptic Curve Cryptography for the Transport Layer Security Protocol).
In addition to authenticating to unlock the smartphone, here are a few examples of how IEEE2410 Standard can be deployed to ensure greater security within an organization or business:
FILE SHARING - This is offered as HOYOS Data Manager. You can share encrypted files with other people that will need to authenticate biometrically to view the file. This guarantees that only the people you want to see a file are the ones with access to it.
GEO-FENCING – Combining IEEE2410 Standard with a device’s secure GPS or locations service can create a powerful tool. Let's say you have a secure perimeter like a military base. IEEE2410 Standard can have guards patrolling the area authenticate at a given period of time or have them authenticate when they enter or leave the perimeter. This is done monitoring the device's geolocation or (if underground) with Bluetooth beacons.
Our use of INTEGRITY goes beyond smartphones. HOYOS INTEGRITY’s technology and product roadmap, in conjunction with Green Hills Software, is directed at creating an entire ecosystem of truly secure, connected INTEGRITY-based devices and solutions including smartphones and tablets.
Our mission is to protect people/companies/governments, and their communications, identity, data, and privacy.
