AUTHENTICATED WIFI ACCESS POINTS
WITH BEAME CRYPTO-ID
SITUATION
  • WIFI access provided in public environments is rarely open and un-authenticated
  • Some countries require providers of public hotspots to authenticate users for liability reasons
COMPLICATION
  • Current ways of authentication to a WIFI hotspot are cumbersome and insecure
  • Private Home WIFI hotspots are easily hackable
  • Many hacks for passwords have been successful with fake hotspots and fishing for password hashes
RESOLUTION
  • Utilize x.509 certificate inside beame Crypto-ID to identify both ends of the WIFI connection (client and access point)
  • Allow only connections that are encrypted with such certificate
 
BENEFITS OF BEAME.IO CRYPTO-ID
  • Impossible to hack by password fishing exercises, as the fake access point will not have a means to authenticate itself to the wireless client
  • Super-sleek user experience with only the beame Crypto-ID as unique identification for WIFI access
