Authentication System Being Rebuilt Using A Distributed Ledger

SecureKey Technologies is rebuilding its authentication system to satisfy regulatory privacy by design requirements and eliminate any visibility of data whatsoever in a centralized node, according to Greg Wolfond, CEO of the Toronto-based company.

To ensure there's triple blind privacy, Wolfond said SecureKey is rewriting the authentication system using blockchain or distributed ledger methodology. Once the work is done, Wolfond said the network in the middle won't be able to see any data, either encrypted or unencrypted, and the central node won't know where a user is going when they're logging into to tax or unemployment systems.

Everything SecureKey has done around the rebuild is aligned with GDPR's position that consumers need to be in the middle of their data and consent every time their data is being shared, Wolfond said. The three-year rebuild is expected to be complete in the fall, Wolfond said, and required collaboration with SecureKey's banking partners since they'll need to be able to interact with the system.
