What are Scrambled Secrets?

blog_interview
The idea behind the Scrambled Secrets is not only locking the door of your safe by using a simple “True-False-authentication-mechanisms” but rather protecting your “values” themselves by encrypting. Your values or secrets could be money or important business data, technical spoken that are files, like textual information, images, videos or other software. The idea to scramble your secrets means to encrypt each value separately. That means not only encrypting the whole hard disk rather encrypting each file or each banknote in your „safe“.

What a home match!
As one of the alumni of the Institute of Management Berlin I’ve presented our security app FabulaRosa in front of MBA students of the Hong Kong Baptist University.
The topic was:
HOW TO BECOME A WINNER WITHIN THE NET ECONOMY?
A CASE STUDY AND ANALYSE OF KEY SUCCESS FACTORS FOR INTRODUCING DIGITAL SERVICES GLOBALLY
The lecture was received with great interest and many remarkable questions were asked.
One of the discussed key success factors was the need for expanding in Asia as the key to a global strategy.
I hope that my lecture was the first step for making contacts and finding partners in Asia.

We’ve carried home the winner’s trophy!!!

blog_gsn2012_v1

At a gala dinner that drew hundreds of government officials and industry executives to the Washington Convention Center on November 29, Government Security News announced the winners
— including KikuSema GmbH with its security app FabulaRosa– in 42 different categories in its 4th Annual Homeland Security Awards competition.
The winners were selected by a panel of objective judges, according to Jacob Goodwin, Editor-in-Chief of Government Security News.
The judges received an outstanding group of entries and have handed winners’ plaques to an exceptional group of companies and government agencies.
The Security App FabulaRosa is perfect for securing authentication and to keep up with the trend of the new touch-screen devices and Cloud Computing.
FabulaRosa is designed to create High Definition (HD) passwords within the range of a maximum length of 850 characters taken from the UTF16 character set, or a minimum length of 10 ASCII characters.
It creates many different passwords by applying only one image only existing in your mind.
The passwords are not stored at all; they are generated in the moment you draw the image on the screen.
Using universally understood concepts like colours, directions and patterns FabulaRosa is worldwide applicable. FabulaRosa provides you with passwords for ordinary logins as well as for high security applications.
Furthermore the entire authentication process is strengthened by the Five New Protocols.
Authentication by smart phones or tablets becomes essential for the user, both in private or public spaces, whether using trustworthy or untrustworthy devices.
The transfer of High Definition passwords and confidential information by QR code or NFC using a stealth mode represents a paradigm shift in the authentication process.
FabulaRosa is worldwide applicable, in fact everywhere where passwords or pass codes are used. It has the potential to become the common pattern login for operation systems, for business customer and privileged identities.

ISSE Conference: 23rd & 24th October, Brussels, Belgium

blog_iss2012v1
The conference Information Security Solutions Europe (ISSE; www.isse.eu.com), established and supported by EEMA and TeleTrusT, and the European Commission was held in Brussels this time.
During this event we have demonstrated our App FabulaRosa within the TeleTrust Partner booth. We were proud to present the app on iPhone, iPad, Android tablet, and Android smart phone as well as on the old-fashion desktop.
There were some interesting discussions and contacts.
We have succeed to arouse the interest of James Sheire, NSTIC/USA, as well as e of the leading European cryptographer Bart Preneel .
We hope that Professor Preneel will find the necessary time to undergo a strict examination of the algorithms, which FabulaRosa is based on.

USEUCOM I3T Conference and Exposition Munich Feb 13, 2012 – Feb 16, 2012

blog_useucomv1
During February 13-15th 2012 we were exhibitors at the USEUCOM.
This time it was a ’home game’ for us, because the conference took place in Germany, Munich and we were able to present our app ’FabulaRosa’ with a lot of equipment. We presented our app simultaneously on Intel-PC, iPad, Samsung Galaxy tablet and on Android Smart Phone.
In the run-up to the exhibition we made up a list of all accounts or logins, we call it addressees, which we are regularly using. We came up to number of 109 addressees and the trend is increasing!
Imagine – nowadays the first activation of a new tablet requires already about five logins.
That means the old fashion password isn’t dead and we are on the right track.
It applies to overcome the disadvantages, to create advantage and come up with new ideas for the future.
We are convinced that our ’New Protocols’ containing features of QR-Code-Mode, Time-based stealth mode and a ’Secret’ based login are forward-looking technology for strengthening the entire authentication process.
Our booth was well visited, we made some contacts and perhaps we have succeeded in attracting attention beyond the civilian sector.
Our next step is to publish ’FabulaRosa’ for iPhone a.s.a.p.
