The Foundation of the APPSCARD solutions is the World's first "Government Grade Biometric Computer on Card". Integrated in an ISO-standard smart card format with a large and physically flexible fingerprint sensor designed for use throughout entire populations. A complete local ID-system that does not compromise security or user privacy and works conveniently and securely for very close to 100% of any given population.
A card and system that replaces today's primitive and vulnerable «keys» to our personal security and our physical and digital assets.
A system where the card owner’s identity, credentials and sensitive data for dozens of parallel user applications are stored securely and isolated (firewalled) within the card.
APPSCARD replaces all of today’s identity keys, including pin codes, passwords, code tokens, simple non-biometric access cards, signatures, physical keys etc, all of which are easily compromised. And, the system is not dependent on databases or communication lines, only the users biometrics. Thus, all dominant sources of the massive challenges facing us today are effectively removed.
The Total System Catalyst
Securing Physical & Digital Assests
live in an increasingly digital and open world where our security and
both physical and digital, are protected by old and primitive access systems.
These outdated "keys" are today the dominant reason why:
We live in a World where citizen trust has been severly challenged and will need to be restored.
We live in a World where governments must establish policies, legislation and enforce the use of new generations digital security systems.
Adressing these issues will realize massive savings and value for societies, corporations and citizens.
* World Economic Forum & The FIDO Alliance
1 out of 3 US adults have at some point been victims of identity theft.
* Identity Force
Attackers will always find and exploit the weak links of any system. Present-day keys represent weak links that are easily exploited.
New generation solutions will only be safe and secure if:
No pin-codes or passwords
No communication lines
No weak fallbacks
End-To-End Secure Implementation
The World is out of Control
Governments to assume responsibility
The Biometric Keychain
System Level Integrity
Security - Convenience - Privacy
A Total Approach - No Weak Links
Seven pillars of a TRUSTED HOUSE
Government’s, companies and individuals cannot expect the private
sector, whether they are multinational IT-companies, telco's or private banks to be focused on anything other than maximizing the number of
transactions they make.
In reality, only local authorities can realistically address the problem on behalf of their citizens and their businesses. Only local authorities are able to implement TOTAL AND ROBUST SOLUTIONS with the ability to neutralize criminal methods of stealing our identities, our safety and the keys to our physical and digital assets.
Only the public sector can realistically establish policy, legislate change and enforce the use of leading edge digital technology for the security of its citizens and integrity of public services.
National policies have already been established for digital transformation in many countries around the world. However, given the present levels of cybercrime and identity theft, new tools must be adopted that guarantee the citizen’s identity whilst simultaneously provide privacy protection.
Systems defined, distributed and controlled by a TRUSTED PARTY
APPSCARD is not like a
traditional smart card – but rather a secure computer built in a card format
The system includes:
The cards may be shipped with JAVA-Card or customer defined OS, in combination with standards such as:
Multifunctionality and the highest
levels of security and integrity are ensured throughout the system.
These features enable secure remote updates of the card's applications and user credentials associated with them.
When combined, these elements warrant a safe, user-friendly, and cost-effective protection of our physical and digital values.
Enabling secure and sustainable digital transformations
Every step in the card life cycle, from design through card manufacturing to issuance and remote upgrades is treated with the highest level of security and confidentiality.
Each card has it own unique serial number etched in the core depths of a secure smart card chip. Every application that runs on the card has its own security keys for access and data storage, eliminating unauthorized entry, data duplication and cross contaminations.
APPSCARD’s product strategy focuses on protecting the card owner and user from malicious attacks, all whilst providing tracking, traceability and ease of use with maximum functionality.
The card technology can be utilized in every sensitive steps of the process, biometrically linking all relevant staff and card, creating transparency and traceability within the whole eco-system.
Trust is created – from start to finish.
Transparancy & Traceability in all sensitive steps of card manufacture and handling
National/Public ID-card projects are best managed by national or regionally trusted market-leading system integrators, taking care of all sensitive steps in the process.
Ownership of APPSCARD technology, including card-production and the total system management, will be local and organized so that governments have the necessary oversight and long-term ownership/control.
Trust is local and must be earned by all key eco-system members
The unique APPSCARD technology will, unlike what is the case for mobile phones and
PCs, have a low enough cost, a secure enough architecture and
a quality in its biometric solution to enable secure and user friendly implementations in entire populations.
Thus the system does not need to depend on providing unsafe backup solutions with pin codes, passwords, old fashioned id-cards or other exploitable backdoors to the values and security of the individual, the company or society. When the card is made mandatory - the effective threshold for criminals and dishonest people is dramatically raised - whether they're looking to steal identities, launder money or break into a database.
Biometric Access system with no compromize biometric, high quality fallbacks only
absolute and secure tie between the card and its rightful owner does not only ensure that the right person is
present, it also removes a dishonest owner's ability to deny that they have
done their own transactions – whether this was to buy a product, enter a
building or send an important document.
APPSCARD teams are today working on long-term programs with governments who aim to create cashless and transparent communities. Communities where everyone pays their taxes and where criminals will be significantly more exposed when their financial and access-transactions are carried out
System takes away end users ability to deny their own transactions
The APPSCARD system …
the same time, the system is decentralized/local, so it not only works without
vulnerable databases or lines of communication, but also in situations where
one does not need to share one’s identity during access transactions. You
you have access to a given area or that you have a valid vaccine against
Covid-19 or that you are a valid member of an organization - in one second
–> without having to share personal information about who you
Through this total organization, real and solid privacy is created - it also enables virtually all users to have confidence that the system and their data are safe - that they themselves control their own keys – their own identities.
Adding to restored privacy comes new levels of convenience:
Individuals regain real control of their own identities, their own keys to their security and assets
