A description of our technical goals in developing WiKID.

As a two-factor authentication system, the WiKID Strong Authentication System follows several guiding principles:

  1. The system is as secure or more secure than existing two-factor security systems.
  2. The system is easier to use, maintain and administer than existing two-factor security systems.
  3. The system is less expensive to implement and maintain than existing two-factor security systems.
  4. The system is highly extensible, addressing multiple authentication requirements as they arrive.
  5. The system uses standard, published cryptographic methods in the belief that “security through obscurity” is a fallacy. Instead, security is maximized by the strength of the system design and of the underlying cryptographic methods.

The design and implementation of the WiKID system consistently implements these principles in all respects.
