Myris Eye Scanning Password Authenticator
This palm-sized device scans the eye to confirm a user’s identity before granting access to secure websites and other sensitive digital data.
Employing the same biometric technology trusted to verify travelers at international borders, the authenticator has a small camera on the underside that quickly scans each user’s iris–the colored portion of the eye whose 240 distinctive points form a one-of-a-kind pattern unique to each individual.
Using this identifying information, the authenticator creates an encrypted ID that cannot be forged or duplicated, unlike a standard password that can still be entered when acquired by a hacker.
The device connects via USB to any computer or tablet running Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 or Mac OS X 10.8.5 and higher.
It can authenticate five separate users and comes with a carrying pouch.
