The PUF technology
CIPHRA is a Hardware Security Module powered by PUF (Physical Unclonable Functions) and works as a password hashing processor with encryption capabilities.
Using our patented PUF technology will enable next generation highest protection, where no root/master key is stored or backed-up anywhere, at a much lower cost than other alternatives.
The CIPHRA appliances are designed to easily scale redundancy and throughput.
In other words, increasing the number of authentications per second without any major changes to the customer’s existing system architecture.
Without access to the keys protected by CIPHRA, the stolen data is useless to the attacker. Connecting the CIPHRA appliances to public webserver databases prevents the password hashes from being cracked through offline password recovery attacks such as brute force, rainbow tables etc, regardless of the password strength and computing resources available to the attacker.
Furthermore, the offline key generated during the installation process is used to scale and seamlessly maintain the redundancy and throughput required for your online service.
