About


Imagine you could get logged to your bank account and pay online without entering your login, your card number, or your pin code…

Imagine you could replace all your passwords and logins by a simple gesture…

Imagine you could manage all your very personal data by storing them in a safe place only you can access.

Imagine you could realize all those transactions not only with your smartphone but with any internet-connected device.

SesameTouch is the next small thing that will make everything possible. With this connected companion you can pay without disclosing your bank number, you can get logged without using several logins and passwords. SesameTouch will make your digital life a safer and easier place.

So join the “Sesamers” community.

You can finally use strong passwords without having to spend time remembering or typing them. They are all securely stored inside SesameTouch and all you need to do is to place your finger on the sensor and they will be automatically filled in your browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefoxe, Edge, IE) on any device (smartphone, tablet, PC, Mac, and tomorrow SmartTV, connected car…). That’s it! And filling a form works in the same way.

Many documents are crucial in your daily life (ID copies, pay slips, warranties, business contracts, and even your private pictures). That’s why we have integrated a secure storage. All your files will be encrypted and stored in your SesameTouch. You can access them at any time anywhere, on any device, with one simple touch.


Once you have registered your payment information in your SesameTouch, you will not have to do it again on websites. No card payment details, no CVV, no expiration date to worry about or SMS codes to wait for. Just place your finger and your SesameTouch will do the rest.

Thanks to the contactless NFC technology, SesameTouch can communicate with any contactless terminal such as an Electronic Payment Terminal, or to validate tickets, control access, etc. You don’t need a smartphone to enjoy all these services with your SesameTouch!

We have worked a lot to provide you with a smooth user-experience: place your thumb on the sensor and tap the SesameTouch on the NFC target. Just as simple as Apple or Samsung Pay.

Smartphone vendors made a promise: one device for all services. Contactless payments, ticketing for mass transit, NFC tag reading, secure online payments, sensitive file storing and data securely, conveniently authenticate yourself with your fingerprint… But how many smartphones or tablets do you actually need to access all of these services? How much may it cost you in terms of money and privacy?

Actually not a single model can provide you with the convenience of a Touch ID and an Apple Pay, the open NFC of a Samsung Galaxy, the size of a laptop screen or the security level of a smartcard.

This is what SesameTouch is all about. It gathers in one small pad connected to any Internet access device (smartphone, tablet, PC, set top box…) all the missing features of those devices: large biometric sensor, secure element, NFC…

Based on an open architecture specified by Natural Security Alliance, SesameTouch is respectful of your privacy, specifically in terms of tracking, and does not use your data for commercial purposes. You keep the control.

You may wonder why we need such a pad, when smartphones tend to support everything. The answer is simple: cost, security and convenience. To access all contactless and security services, you need to invest in several, expensive handsets and renew them every 18 months or so.

So, for a small price invested for the long-term, SesameTouch upgrades your  smartphone with features of several expensive devices. And it is future proof as new services are provided through applications.

Using Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy technologies, SesameTouch can communicate with all your devices (personal or professional computers, smartphones, tabs, etc.).

You won’t ever need reproducing your data on all your devices, or storing them on unsafe cloud servers. With your SesameTouch you can access all of them from any device.

SesameTouch also works with Near Field Communication so it can communicate with all sorts of terminals such as Electronic Payment Terminals.


A connected companion should be able to follow you anywhere for anything… We have designed SesameTouch to be compatible with any service provider.

For this purpose SesameTouch will be provided with a SDK for developers and services providers.

Moreover, we are currently promoting our technology and developing partnerships to increase the amount of available services.

With your contributions, we will be able to finalize our product and to start the production. Indeed, we need a high production volume to get low prices for the components, so we can bring SesameTouch to you for an interesting price. In addition, the funds will serve to improve the design of the casing.

We also consider crowdfunding as an extraordinary opportunity to appreciate your interest for our product, and your comments are meaningful inputs for us to improve the concept.

Trust Designer has been founded by Jerome Dusautois (CEO) and Pascal Merlin (CTO) in 2007. Based in EuraTechnologies, heart of the IT innovation in North Europe, we were first specialized in IT and security consultancy. Over the past years we have developed solutions to prevent fraud and counterfeiting (2D-Origin) and an app that securely authenticates users by transforming their smartphone into an actual safe (ShotNGet).

Two years ago, we have started to move forward from mere consultancy and we have decided to get involved in the biometric authentication. We designed our first biometric devices (a personal object and a remote reader TeDeGo within one year, and they are now being used for pilots in France and USA.

Eager for innovation, few months ago we have started looking to develop a handy, simple, all-in-one device that allows the user to get authenticated anywhere. We wanted to combine in a single hardware the personal device and the reader, and SesameTouch was born!

           
                                    
     

Risks and challenges

The development of this connected object dedicated to biometric authentication is a true challenge because it must bring you a high level of security and data protection, a solid reliability, while remaining user-friendly and affordable. Thanks to our expertise in the fields of security, biometric, and communication technology, we have already conceived and produced a biometric personal device and a biometric reader that are currently being used by our clients (www.tedego.com).

Moreover, as a member of Natural Security Alliance, we implement in our products a strong authentication standard (coming along with test plans and a certification scheme) supported by many worldwide actors such as card schemes and banks (www.naturalsecurityalliance.org).

However, industrializing such an object is still a challenge, especially in terms of miniaturizing the components to fit the final casing and regarding their integration to guarantee a solid robustness.

With SesameTouch, we are aiming at taking-up these challenges to produce quality objects and to respect the target timeline.
