Google Acquired Israeli Security Startup

It looks like the tech giant is considering improvements to its two-factor authentication. Google has just bought SlickLogin – a company founded only one year ago. It developed a new smart identification technology known as two-factor authentication, using high frequency sounds as pass keys. Apparently, this technology will be used with Google’s latest user identification security parameters.

The price of the company was not announced, but the suggestions are that it was several million. This amount isn’t bad taking into account the age of SlickLogin. The company first presented its technology last September, but has never launched its product nor got any customers.

The idea behind their innovative technology is that passwords are already insufficient to keep users and their data completely safe. The company’s idea consists of a cloud-based platform using 2 factors of identification without burdening the ordinary user with any process involving landing pages or actions different from typing a password.

It should be noted that two-factor authentication already exists and is being applied in many areas, but the Israeli startup obviates the need for extra hardware by relying on a device everyone has today – a smartphone. The technology also doesn’t require the user to receive a text message or move any mobile device to their PC. Instead, it performs the identification independently by playing an ultrasonic frequency from the smartphone. Then the system on the PC or any other device analyses the frequency for identification. As such, no other additional identification process is required. The user only has to type their username and password, and the rest is performed automatically and transparently when the devices are near each other.

sn3h1t87 avatarSeems mostly aimed at Two Factor Authentication, not dissimilar to the way Google Authenticator [google.com] works without having to type anything into your phone.

Currently Google's 2FA uses you phone as a synced clock displaying numbers which you have to key in to your
computer to log in.

These guys revers that and you computer sends a QR code or a sound that your Cellphone authenticates and sends
a response back through the network, via a separate path (tcp connection or sms message).

Its pretty clever, as long as its paired with something else only you would know. It has the same problems
that Google's current two factor has, namely that it is game over if someone steals your phone.

I suspect they bought them more for the patents than anything else.

This adds no more information than you've already given them for Two Factor Authentication.
