The result? A lightweight authentication protocol to create secure channels between two or more endpoints for transmission of sensitive communication data.
Called Hash Commitment Before Knowledge (HCBK), the protocol has been patented in both European and US markets, and is now available commercially for the first time in Scrambl, a highly secure Instant Messaging communications app for smartphones.
Scrambl allows cyber-security teams to have a secure means of communicating amongst themselves at a moments notice. Just open the app on any iOS device, enter the email address of the person you’d like to connect with, and Scrambl runs an authentication process to create an encrypted, secure channel between you and the other party.
Scrambl also works with groups – just add more people to the channel as required, for the ability to chat and share image files in a group session.
Channels can be deleted after use, or left intact for the next incident requiring assurance you’re secure.
