GATE_Comparison

GATE is a revolutionary password/passcode entry process that retains account security even in situations where potential intruders witness the entries being made. Based on user password choice, server renders password entry buttons/tokens on a screen, rendering multiple characters per button. When button selection is made by a user there is no way for an observer to know the actual password due to the multiple characters per button. This makes GATE an interception-resistant authentication system which increases passcode strength exponentially.

Each subsequent rendering of buttons by the server will be unique, based on the GATE algorithm, ensuring button selection cannot simply be repeated based on button location in order to infiltrate an account. Due to the rendering process required in order to present password buttons to a user, a server has to already know the password of the user in order to render an appropriate array of buttons. Therefore bogus or malicious servers will not be able to render an appropriate array of buttons to a user, which allows the user to recognize whether or not the screen he is looking at is being controlled by the appropriate body. In traditional password system, server authenticates user, yet with GATE, user also authenticates server, therefore defeat phishing by design.

GATE can use short and easy to remember passcodes to defeat peeking, wiretapping, keylogging, phishing and dictionary attack without the restrictions of lowercase, uppercase, numbers & special characters !
Fixed passwords have the advantage of easy to remember, one time passwords have the advantage of hard to hack, GATE passcode is a fixed passcode to the user, but from the hackers’ perspective, it changes every time, GATE passcodes have the best of both worlds, short and easy to remember, yet secure and hard to hack.

GATE_Comparison is a FREE demo app to compare the weaknesses of traditional password systems to the strengths of the innovative GATE System.
