Hoyos Integrity Improving Phone Security Through Blockchain
Tech giants like Apple have incorporated biometrics into phone systems to improve security. Fingerprint and eye scans, as well as, facial ID are becoming common ways to authenticate a valid user. However, online fraudsters are also finding creative ways to gain unauthorized access.
Hoyos Integrity is creating a unique secure smartphone with biometrics-integrated blockchain security. The device is called BIBLOS (an abbreviation for Biometric Blockchain Security) and it uses a military-grade operating system that has no known vulnerabilities and has never been hacked in twenty years of use.
In fact, it is the same operating system that protects the U.S. military’s arsenal. The smartphone is geared towards government agencies, financial institutions and other establishments that routinely deal with sensitive information, and the device runs on Hoyos Risen coin (RSN) which is currently in pre-sale. Hoyos has exclusivity on the military-grade OS and the biometric-blockchain integration and therefore is the only company offering total security for endpoints, which in this case is smartphones.
The Hoyos Crypto Wallet places a biometric lock on its ERC-20 token. This lock, which is turned on in the smart contract, prevents cryptocurrency from being removed unless the owner biometrically authenticates, even if the thief has the private key. In fact, Hoyos Integrity is so confident in their biometric lock, they have placed $100 million in RSN tokens into a wallet and published the private key, daring hackers to try and steal the tokens.
“Today, our smartphones have become as ubiquitous as the clothing we wear, making us completely dependent on them to stay connected to friends, family, and work,” says Omar Hoyos, VP of Marketing for Hoyos Integrity. “This started out as a good thing but has evolved into a real and active threat to our security and privacy, because everything we do on our smartphones is vulnerable.”
