Identity + is a novel security solution based on PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) called a network of trust. It features an all-in-one 2 (ocasionally 3) factor authentication and TLS level authentication making your site more secure than ever. Additionally it enables site owners to collaborate in defending against criminality by allowing them to send feedback on certificates and their oweners. With Identity +, when a spam is reported, we are not only preventing the same spam being posted anywhere else, we are effectively preventing the spammer sending any other kind of spam, anywhere else. Keep on reading for a brief intro into this powerful technology.
Log In, Before A Login Page
Why Identity + Is Better Than Any 2 Factor Authentication …
Whenever you deal with application level login, whether it’s one factor, two factor or any factor for that matter, you need a login page. This page must load before it gets the chance to see who is visiting, which is why Worpress has a protection against repeated login attempts. This can stop bots, to a certain degree, but if you happen to have an application vulnerability that can be used by a hacker to bypass login, whether you forgot to updated your Wordpress or something totally out of your control like zero day vulnerability in PHP, your blog is toast, regardless of how many factors of authentications you have.
Identity + uses TLS level authentication, which means the visiting device is authenticated before the login page loads. If the proper PKI credentials are not presented by the device, the page will never, ever load. The visitor is simply directed away from the sensitive page and hence is unable to perform any kind of attack, be that brute force, credential theft or zero day for that matter. No login page, no problem …
A VPN Into Your Admin Panel
Make Your Admin Panel Accessible Only From Your Computers …
Having a PKI indenity in your browser is a powreful thing. Because the server expects that identity to be there, it does not only limit access by the user, it also limits access based on computer. As such, your admin panel becomes literally inaccessible from any other computer in the world. To access your admin panel, a hacker must steal your computer and access it from there.
SSO Like Never Before
Simpler, Faster, More Secure. Sign In Without Having To Do Anyting …
Once you start using Identity +, you will see you are hardly asked to do anything, you’ll just notice you are logged in. Don’t get scared, you are logged in because your computer is certified and it’s being identified before you would have the chance to do anything. But since you also logged in with your password or your fingerprint into the device you are using (laptop / mobile phone), you are actually performing 2 factor authentication without even noticing it. You will occasionally notice however, as your certificate becomes idle, that you are being asked for your Identity + PIN. That’s actually the third factor authentication, all in one solution
A Network Of Trust
Reward Good Deeds And Block The Spammer, Not The Only Spam …
When devices wear an impossible to forge identity, something amazing happens: if you restrict access to your comment section to devices with Identity + certificates, whever you approve a comment, you are sending tokens of trust to the owner of that certificate telling Identity + that you trust the owner. Now other blogs can trust him too, and he is steadily building a profile that defferentiates him from any malicius bot. Conversely, when you mark a comment as spam, you’ll be telling Identity + that this is a malicious entity, and we block the certificate making sure the device can’t be used to post spam again. Now we are no longer only stopping spam, we are collectively working on stopping the spammer.
Enjoy 10 Connected Users For Free
Free Certificates, Free API Up To 10 Connected Users, Unlimited Validations For Free …
A connected user is a user that can be signed in automatically via Identity + into a service using Identity +. If that service is your personal blog, you probably don’t have more than 10 users who regularly sign into the administrative section of your Wordpress installation. If that’s the case, you will never have to pay for Identity +. Visitors that comment with Identity + accounts that are not connected to local accounts do not count. For this reason the plugin will only connect administrator accouns by default. If you need log more than 10 users into your back-end, you’ll need a business account, the cost of which scales with the number of your active users. Check our the pricing section for details.
