An Artificial Intelligence software – STROKK – that increases the security level of any password by a factor of 10,000 has been developed by Deep Technology start-up, ADGS Qatar, and will be demonstrated during the Milipol Qatar 2021 exhibition.
STROKK provides a transparent second factor authentication and additional layer of security based on the concept of behavioural biometrics or neuromuscular behaviour.
“STROKK leaves random password guessing attacks obsolete, and stolen credentials entirely insignificant,” said ADGS CEO Christophe Billiottet. “STROKK learns the neuromuscular speed processes between your brain and your fingers by means of a regular computer keyboard. It then clearly recognises you from anyone else.”
STROKK is a second factor authentication scheme based on keystroke dynamics for hardening user passwords transparently and a system for secure access control, ensuring impostor that masquerade as valid users are unable to access private or corporate information.
STROKK builds a behavioural biometric template of your unique typing signature and checks it each time you log in — keeping attackers out of your system. Even if hackers guess or steal your password, they can’t type it the same way you do because every single person has a unique, inimitable way of typing.
Using Machine Learning and proprietary Artificial Intelligence algorithms, ADGS is proud to demonstrate that its solution is the most accurate currently available worldwide, with less than 0.01 percent false positive and 1.8 percent false negative, lowered to 0.2 percent after a second attempt. This increases the password security by a factor of 10,000 at least.
STROKK is currently deployed at a Cyber Defence Center and several banks in the Middle East and America.
At Milipol Qatar 2021 to be held from March 15 to 17, ADGS is challenging visitors to try and beat STROKK.
The start-up will offer a QR5,000 prize to anybody that can successfully log into a computer protected by STROKK. The password will be publicly displayed. The ADGS stand number at Milipol Qatar 2021 is H057.
“ADGS was founded with the mission to develop ethical algorithms for computers to analyse and reproduce human behaviour without ever using private data,” said Billiottet. “STROKK is one of our most outstanding examples and outcomes of this commitment.”
“We are waiting for members of the public to accept our STROKK challenge at the upcoming Milipol Qatar exhibition and wish them good luck,” said ADGS President Hassan Al Ansari.
