Your nervous system provides a stable million character long password
Encrypt or decrypt content you want to remain private – anytime, anywhere
Welcome to the world of bio-crypto keys.
Your body is your bio-crypto key
Biological signals are complex enough for this technology jump.
Whatever you decide to encrypt or decrypt
Select any communication from your mobile device, laptop, or desktop computer that you want to keep private.
Your communication is longer unshielded
This is like using good old-fashioned envelopes again.
The question is not to live or not to live in a post-privacy world, but do we need privacy? In a hyper-connected world where more and more bits of information fly faster, and are used without any user knowledge or consent, privacy becomes even more relevant.
During WWII, Germany built its Enigma system using electro-mechanical machines to generate random and unique codes to make their military messages unreadable. To crack this system, Alan Turing and many others had to build their own machines — the famous Bombas —, and later Colossus — the first real computer. Around the same time, John Von Neumann and others quickly built the computer as general purpose machines by separating hardware from software.
Because computers can perform many hundreds of billions of operations per second, they can crack any cypher key in more or less time. The length of such keys is what can shield the users. And our body is entropic enough that it can generate such extra long keys. Our body becomes our best shield.
Why did we stop using envelopes? Some would say that we traded convenience and free products by becoming the products ourselves. Aerendir bio-crypto key gives us back the choice of using (or not using) the envelope.
Of course it can, and it is already being implemented. Information Technology (IT) created a paradigm shift in how to conceive and protect citizen’s privacy, and society needs to be creative about this.
From the European Union's Constitution derived legal statutes and implementation directives around privacy for the IT age.
Since 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) and Payment Services Directive Part 2 (PSD2), have been enacted and applied. GDPR defines a broad range of measures, and PSD2 is a directive about the portability of financial personal information.
Some countries have followed the EU's example, and in the US, some states are enacting stricter laws. However, there is no Federal Law about digital privacy in the US at the moment despite all the nefarious consequences — both for the users and the business community — which we are seeing playing.
