About Us


Founded in 2011, Authentico Technologies focuses on problems within cybersecurity whereas our patented solutions are the results of scientific research. Authentico Technologies has built a password storage solution for companies that has top security requirements without sacrificing usability, scalability and user experience. Our patented technology processes secret data at the hardware level and stores the processed data, which can be stored and used for verification of the secrets, but it is impossible to recover the actual secrets from the stored data.

Dr. Will Harwood (Advisory board member) founded Silicon Safe in 2013 as a reaction to the problem of bulk theft of passwords at rest. In creating a solution he drew upon his extensive experience in formal method, systems security and product delivery acquired in avionics, telecommunications and enterprise software technology sectors. As CTO he piloted the company through proof-a-concept development and into the trial deployment phase, before handing the baton onto the production and business development team, departing as CTO in 2017 but maintaining an active involvement as a share holder.
Currently Dr. Harwood semi-retired. Since 2013 he has been contributing to cyber security M. Sc. at the University of York, providing a course on the elements of trust for Cybersecurity. Additionally he is a visiting Research fellow at York.
The relation between Silicon Safe’s Password Protect and Authentico’s CiPHRA
Both solutions introduce new specialised hardware components into the enterprise architecture. Silicon Safe’s Password Protect new hardware securely stored and validated passwords whereas CiPHRA performs secure hashing. In established organisations the Password Protect approach conflicted with established  business and operating procedures, in particular the area of backup and recovery procedures, requiring these to be modified to accommodate the new architectural component. In this respect  CiPHRA offers a superior solution in that it integrates naturally into existing procedures with little or no alteration to them.
