METAPASSWORD
 
     
 
Metapassword
MetaPassword is an intrinsically safe system of identification that can be used to access servers through communication networks (e.g. Internet or telephone networks) and, more generally, for the automatic control of identity.
 

The system is developed by Quanticom Solutions Ltd in partnership with Norman Research responsible for design and integration of its software. The system is based on the idea expressed in the international patent published with the number WO2004070506, filed by Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – Istituto Nazionale di Fisica della Materia (CNR-INFM) (National Council of Research - National Institute for the Physics of Matter).

METAPASSWORD uses "disposable" passwords (One Time Password or OTP) generated in an interactive and global way by an algorithm that skips, in a controlled manner, some information traveling over the network: the password will vary depending on the global history of connections of the owner and as a function of random numbers exchanged between the user and the server. In this way, the OTP can be considered undoubtedly unpredictable.
The system perfectly integrates itself with all existing communication standards, and doesn’t need any change of these ones. It uses an already available and well experienced technology. In addition it’s universal; although not based on cryptography, it can be safely used in conjunction with it.

The access procedure involves the use of:
- A specially programmed smart card;
- Dedicated pocket reader (that, if needed, may be connected to a computer utilised to access the network);
- Software that manages the connections with the server of the carrier company you want to use.


The connection system here described can be easily extended to handheld computers and mobile phones. In this case, in conjunction with an m-banking service, would allow purchases in any store without cash in a totally safe manner. In addition, the password generated with OTP system can be used as key in encryption algorithms by allowing the transfer of encrypted information in an ever different way each time you connect.
