Frustrated with the inadequate security provided by username and password authentication and the increasing vulnerabilities exploited by hackers to overcome two-factor authentication solutions, Eugene Shablygin founded WWPass Corporation in 2008. After 6 years of research & development, the company introduced our unique authentication solution which replaces the username with a secure PassKey. The PassKey does not contain any identity data; it serves only as a unique cryptographic identifier that is used to retrieve identity data from our patented Distributed Data System. By combining multiple standards-based technologies such as symmetric and asymmetric keys with AES-256 encryption and Reed-Solomon codes, the solution is immune to modern sophisticated attacks by cyber criminals seeking to impersonate user accounts. The user’s identity is never exposed in transit or at rest making credential theft virtually impossible.
