If you are up to date on all your Intel news then you might remember at the start of December some interesting news came about. Intel had announced that they had acquired a Canadian Password manager company who went by the Name PasswordBox. This company was a typical password manager company which offered its users a password storage solution so they did not have to re-enter their information one every website and so on. Well, as mention, the acquisition by Intel was only a month ago and already we are starting to see the fruition of the two companies together.
PasswordBox today announced the launch of a new service which is going by the name ‘True Key’. As this is CES week it is probably not a surprise that the service has been announced and is debuting in Las Vegas over the next few days. If you are already a PasswordBox customer then you might want to listen up as True Key is a rather interesting alternative to the standard password manager solutions. According to the PasswordBox blog post, True Key is completely different from other solutions as no master password is required. Instead, you are the password. Sounds weird, right. Well, it is. Using True Key, the software recognizes you as a person as the actual password and this is achieved by recognition features that are unique to you. The blog post lists examples of these unique features as “the distance between your eyes and nose” or “the devices you own”. Once these traits have been evaluated by the software (and obviously approved) you are granted to all your services and features that you have True Key set controlling.
Now although, the software is being announced this week, the feature has not gone public just yet. However, if you are already a PasswordBox customer then you will soon in the feature see the system taking effect as this will replace your current Password Box service eventually. If however you want to get in on the action sooner rather than later, you can request an invite (don’t say it) to beta the service. If you are a PasswordBox customer (or just interested in the futuristic type of service) then it is worth reading the full blog post by clicking the source link below. So what do you reckon? Do you like the idea of True Key? Do you like the idea of being the password? Let us know.
