Why open sourcing KeyVault?


In Crayonic we love to work on top secret cybersecurity projects, however if the choice is ours, we want everyone to know what we work on and how we do it. One of our own recent developments, Crayonic KeyVault, is not just a product but its also our own R&D platform that allows us to research cool features (or futures?) that solve hard problems such as: biometrics powered key recovery using fuzzy vaults and multi party computing scheme, proximity based login and logout, voice triggered authentication, machine learning with minimal resources and much much more. We think there are other developers who would like to start in this field but lack a ready-to-play crypto-biometric platform compatible with today standards, a platform where they could easily test their ideas. While others may want to know where their most sensitive bytes are stored and used, and maybe appreciate the full control of their keys even when stored in secure elements. For all of those we want to offer one of the most complex biometric authenticator platforms Crayonic KeyVault.


With our platform and some free tools you can start developing almost any type of authentication use case over NFC, BTLE or USB protocols. Similarly, if you care more about the authentication back-end just have a look how you can build one using Crayonic Gateway. Wherever you would like to start exploring we can offer support (some free but mostly paid) and we will try improve upon all free resources and documentation as much as our time permits.


Our industry is mostly opaque and full of NDAs but we want to show some of our work and gain your trust, so consider this as a our starting point. Since we still have long way to go on our roadmap, you can support our R&D efforts mentioned above simply by purchasing Crayonic KeyVault and start building your secure digital identity. Meanwhile, we can provide you with future firmware upgrades as we proceed with the roadmap or even better let us know what would you like to see implemented first.


Thank you for your support!
