Looking for a unbreakable password
You might have just found it , with this new ground breaking technology !!
A new bracelet from Toronto-based company Bionym Inc. is creating a cuff that easily fits in your wrist and tracks a user’s heartbeat and has potential to control devices in substitution to the old-fashioned passwords. The bracelet, Nymi, is currently just a prototype waiting to be built.
How this hearbeat is transformed into a password ?
It works by registering a user’s electrocardiogram (EKG), which is the same tool doctors use to measure heartbeats, and amazingly encodes it into the bracelet. Unlike fingerprints or retina scans, other examples of biometrics, EKGs are not easily forged or lifted.
so when an individual puts on this bracelet, it syncs with a smartphone app, which confirms a match in heartbeat and authenticates a user to all devices locked by the bracelet. You could pretty much say this password is unbreakable.
