Pomcor conducts research on Web and mobile technology, currently focusing on applications of cryptography and biometrics to identity proofing and user authentication.
We have invented a method of securing online credit-card payments with two-factor cryptographic cardholder authentication without friction and without a privacy cost.
As part of a research project on remote identity proofing we have invented the concept of a rich credential, which allows a subject to submit three kinds of verification factors (something that the subject has, something that the subject knows and something that the subject “is”) to a remote verifier with whom the subject has no prior relationship, with selective disclosure of attributes and selective presentation of verification factors.
We have also published a proof-of-concept Node.js application that shows how a full-stack web developer can implement cryptographic authentication using PJCL to provide cryptographic functionality both on the client side and the server side. The Node.js application can be downloaded from the cryptographic authentication page. The PJCl page and the cryptographic authentication page are reachable from the Developers tab of the site menu.
