The Sound-Proof authentication products do not require interaction between the user and the phone.
Sound-Proof checks the proximity of the user’s phone to the device being used to log in. The proximity of the two devices is verified by our AI-enhanced algorithms that compare the ambient noise recorded by their microphones. Audio recording and comparison are fast and invisible to the end-user. Sound-Proof can be easily deployed as it works with major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge) without plugins.
Sound-Proof was created by people from ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
Claudio holds a PhD from ETH Zurich. He focused his research on security of mobile devices (ARM TrustZone, usable security, kernel programming, application attacks) with publications in top-tier international conferences. He focuses on strategy and business development.
Nikos is a PhD student at ETH Zurich. He focuses his research on web authentication. Nikos has years of experience in developing mobile and web applications and a deep understanding of the research aspects of Sound-Proof.
Mike is our lead developer for both back-end and mobile applications (iOS and Android). He has years of experience in both startup and corporate environments.
Srdjan is a Full Professor at ETH Zurich, where he leads the System Security Group and he is also the Director of the Zurich Information Security Center.
Long story short: Sound-Proof is secure! The attacks recently published in “The Sound of the Phones” have all been mitigated by our latest implementation.
We are happy to announce that the Sound-Proof demo is available also for Android. Anyone can now register on our demo page. As a first step you have to download the Sound-Proof application on Google Play.
