TAMPA, Fla., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ceelox, Inc. (OTCBB: CELO) announced today that the company has created a solution for secure login to cloud applications using biometrics. Ceelox ID Online® utilizes a fingerprint authentication and the OpenID protocol to provide an Internet server-based biometric software application. This enables users to securely authenticate without the threat of having their credentials, i.e. user name and password, compromised or stolen by eliminating the feasibility of any replay attack. Once Ceelox ID Online® grants access, the OpenID protocol is used to create a "relying party" relationship that can be locked-down with any cloud application providing the highest level of secure authentication available.
Today, user name and password is the most common login method used to gain access to cloud applications. Ceelox has begun promoting the use of Ceelox ID Online® to a variety of companies who are developing cloud platforms for enterprise and consumer use. These cloud applications include CRM, secure data storage, email encryption, etc. Likewise, Ceelox ID Online® may be used to biometrically login a person to a social website such as Facebook. The significant advantage that Ceelox ID Online® offers is the ability to validate a person is who they claim to be and not an imposter who has used stolen credentials, such as user name and password, digital certificate, or token, to log into another person's account.
By design, OpenID was created to maximize convenience and security for all Internet and cloud users by allowing them to keep a single set of credentials that will log them into all services. With Ceelox ID Online®, Ceelox has expanded the power of the OpenID protocol by eliminating the fear of having a password or other access credential stolen. Instead, biometrics is used to authenticate a person and, as a result, a user doesn't need to worry about an unscrupulous or insecure web
