Living with untrusted software | SDW 2016 | Dr David Everett
What makes you think your software is working correctly? The chances are it was specified at least incompletely and was developed with a significant number of bugs. And on top of that you have the hardware which will also have failures and do you know how a hardware failure will effect the operation of the software. There is no silver bullet just a different mind set in how software is developed, this is nothing to do with agile development its all about defensive coding - but everybody's doing that - aren't they?
Microkey is a cryptographic secure end point designed to be used in conjunction with a mobile phone to increase the security as part of an authentication process between the mobile phone and the resource provider. The end point is a security hardened chip that can be provided in both smart card and SIM card formats. These Microkeys can connect to the phone using NFC or Bluetooth Low Energy.
MAS is Microexpert's Authentication Server that is used to form the host server cryptographic end point. Constructed in a certified Tamper Resistant Module (TRM) it can provide all the necessary key management with both symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic algorithms and mechanisms. Microexpert can also develop proprietary mechanism to meet customer requirements.
