To wrap up our digital identity discussions of 2023, let us raise these three developments -

(1) We entered the second decade of Japanese Army’s unshaken patronage.

Thanks to the support of Founding Commander of Systems Defense Unit of Signal Brigade of Japan’s Ground Self-Defense Force, aka, Japanese Army, we were given the first order for the login software for hardened PCs to be mounted on field command-communications vehicles in 2012.

The software was first put into actual use in 2013 for the authentication of the registered soldiers who are responsible for the encrypted data exchange among the soldiers on the vehicles deployed in the field. The number of licenses has since increased more than 10-fold and is set to stay in use for at least 10 more years, with fresh orders flowing in.

With a multi-user license offered to each vehicle, the total number of registered soldiers might well be now a few thousands or even more. We are honoured to see our Expanded Password System solution contributing to the most demanding task in the most demanding environment.

(2) We teamed up with QRC group, supplier of the most advanced quantum resistant cryptography.

Solid cryptography depends on and contributes to solid identity security and solid identity security depends on an contributes to solid cryptography. We now can offer yet more reliable identity/cryptography-integrated security solutions.

(3) We officially announced the release of Beta Mnemonic Gateways leak-proof password manager.

We have long been talking about the development of Mnemonic Gateways — ‘No Password Vault’ leak-proof password manager . Now, we are delighted to announce the Release of Beta Mnemonic Gateways.
