About

HI!

I work in IT Security, and have done so for over a decade.  What I have seen would scare most people, Hackers are everywhere, trying to get access to your computer to steal your personal information, or banking details or account details to online services.  

The problem is, we all reuse passwords, the same password for Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, eBay, PayPal, Apple, Office, Twitch, eMail, Banking and even Kickstarter.

When one of thee sites gets hacked, the bad guys have access to the password to ALL of the accounts where you have reused the same password.  

For example eBay, hacked just a few of weeks ago, if you had reused that password elsewhere you are now at risk on all the sites where the password is used.

I want to solve that problem.  I want to create the Password Protector.

Designed to securely store your Passwords in an encrypted data-store, one  that you can carry around with you on a USB stick (Very Secure), store locally on your PC (Okay Secure) or in the Cloud (Secure).

Password Protector will use the latest in encryption technology, so that if a hacker managed to get access to your encrypted data-store it would take them 10-20 years to break the encryption and get access to your passwords. 

Password Protector will generate a Long, Complex and Random password for each site you need to login to.  In the future if you need access to the site you just fire up your Password Protector and copy and paste the password in to the login page.  

You will be protected.  If eBay gets hacked again, you don't care, if Apple gets hacked again, not a problem and if Office gets hacked again, no biggie. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk to this type project is the implementation of poor encryption standards. If your encryption is poorly designed then, while it will produce some protection it can be easily overcome by experienced hackers.

With my years of information technology experience, specifically in the security area, I will ensure that our encryption is the latest and greatest, including a 2048 bit encrypted data-store, salted passwords and a goal to meet the requirements of FIPS140-2, which is encryption standards set for U.S. government applications.
