MIRACL is an internet cyber-security company providing protection to Cloud Computing services and their customers by replacing the outdated and problematic single-authority certificates and public key infrastructure (PKI) models.
MIRACL’s pairing-based cryptographic platform for the Cloud addresses issues including key management, secure communications, and data governance / compliance that currently challenge Cloud providers and their customers in sectors such as finance, government, and healthcare.
MIRACL also has developed the M-Pin crypto application, which offers identity and access management security online through a zero-knowledge proof authentication protocol that does not store passwords, PINs or credentials of any kind to prevent the database server attacks that organisations face today. M-Pin® customers include Experian, Gov.UK, and other security conscious organisations through distribution partners such as NTT Software, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Canonical Juju.
M-Pin® claims to remove the largest cyber security threat organisations face today; password database smash n’ grab attacks. M-Pin delivers two-factor authentication, a better user experience, and is resistant to man-in-the-middle attacks using any modern browser or app. The new M-Pin-In-Mobile SDKs for iOS and Android enable app developers to embed M-Pin® client functionality directly into their app, and support the TEE in all mobile devices it is built for.
