EyeLock Incorporates Sticky Password for Added Security and Ease of Use in Online Transactions


Password management software integrates seamlessly for complete identity protection in first-ever iris authentication device for enterprise and mass market



NEW YORK – EyeLock Inc., a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, today announced a partnership with industry-leading password management software provider, Sticky Password.  The combined solution integrates EyeLock's myris device with Sticky Password's password management software to provide added security and ease-of-use for logging in to digital platforms- eliminating the need to create and remember passwords. The myris device is an iris identity authenticator that plugs into a USB port and works on Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS devices and supports Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome browsers.



Here's how the integrated solution works: when myris is plugged into the USB port, the myris application is loaded, the user enrolls and the AES 256 encrypted iris code gets linked to Sticky Password's password management software. When the application is launched for the first time, it culls through browsers on the device to find any passwords that are already stored. It then creates a secure database containing those sites, usernames and passwords unique to that myris user. Since the passwords are secured and stored on the myris and no longer have to be written down or committed to memory, they are significantly more secure because each login requires two unique, live irises for authentication.



In addition, the software provides the following features and functions:



    --  Form Autofill: Beyond simple automatic login credentials, the myris

        software securely stores a variety of form information that is often

        unsafely stored through cookies in the browser. Critical information

        including social security number, credit card information, billing

        address, shipping address and phone numbers are now autofilled securely

        through the myris interface.

    --  Password Security Warnings:  The myris application will auto-detect

        accounts with weak passwords and warn the user. It can then

        auto-generate strong password options for the user to choose from.

    --  Dynamic Application Support: The application will automatically detect

        the programs or applications installed on the user's system and

        auto-populate for quick login.
