Your Digital DNA

Technologies for the Prevention

of Cyber Fraud and Identity Theft

Legitimi l.jpg

Synertech's Legitimi technology is the industry's latest and most advanced online security innovation.

Legitimi delivers extremely reliable two-factor authentication that even exceeds FFIEC requirements for online banking, the most demanding of criteria for cyber security technologies. 

Legitimi is simply the most user-friendly, yet highest level of cyber security attainable, and at a fraction of the costs associated with two-factor authentication.

How does cyber fraud affect your business l.jpg
How Does Cyber Fraud Affect Your Business?

  • Identity theft is America’s fastest growing crime

    - In 2004, 9.9 million Americans were victims of identity theft

    - Consumers suffered a $5 billion economic loss

  • Online fraud will cost eCommerce

    over $2.6 billion in 2005

  • Skyrocketing international fraud

    restricts global expansion for

    many businesses

How vulnerable is your business l.jpg
How Vulnerable is Your Business?

  • Online banking is vulnerable

    - Nearly 2 million consumers were

    victims of online banking fraud

    in 2004

    - 55 million people will bank online

    in 2005

  • Phishing Attacks (email scamming)

    - In 2004, 2 million people were victims of stolen IDs

    and personal information resulting in devastating losses

    - Cyber fraud costs U.S. Banks almost $2 Billion in 2004

Example of a Phishing Email Requesting Personal Information

Regions Bank: Special Announce [Tue, 01 Mar 2005 10:51:07 0300]

REGIONS AND UNION PLANTERS [custservice_ref_776710@regions.com]

TO: yourname@yahoo.com



Regions does not contact customers via e-mail to verify or request security information. However, some customers -- and non-customers -- have received fraudulent or what is now called either "spoofing" or "phishing" e-mails that have illegally used the Regions name, logo, Web site design and/or graphics. The purpose of these fraudulent e-mails is to get you to divulge personal information in order to commit identity theft or to take money from your accounts. In most cases, these fraudulent e-mails either request the recipient to send personal information back to the sender via e-mail; in other cases,they include a link to a Web site, which will then request the visitor to enter their private information AS NOTED IN THE EXAMPLE ON THE NEXT SLIDE.

Slide7 l.jpg

Example of a Fraudulent Site Requesting Personal Information

This site looks very official, but it is fraudulent. The link provided on the phishing email produced this site. As noted on the previous slide, banks do NOT contact customers to

obtain or re-verify information. Anyone that enters information on this site will be a victim

of identity theft. Most of these sites are very sophisticated and include all the proper

logos, disclaimers, etc. as in the example above.

How does corporate fraud impact your company l.jpg
How Does Corporate Fraud Impact Your Company?

  • Insider attack is the most serious and

    financially damaging cyber security

    threat to corporate America

  • In 2004, Fortune 1000 companies

    sustained losses of over $70 billion

    from theft of their proprietary


  • In 2003, theft of proprietary information was

    the leading cause of dollar loss in the CSI/FBI Computer Crime Survey

    (3 times the losses associated with viruses and worms)

Slide9 l.jpg

Regulatory Non-ComplianceCan Be Costly

  • Since 1996, new regulations and laws have been enacted to address personal data privacy and

    security issues

    • California’s SB 1386

    • Sarbanes-Oxley Act

    • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

    • Health Insurance Portability and

      Accountability Act (HIPAA)

  • These emerging legislative standards are forcing companies to incorporate security solutions designed for the protection of critical assets

What are the solutions?

Current technologies l.jpg
Current Technologies

Commonly used measures to control cyber fraud

and identity theft:

  • Install secure environment to prevent hacking

  • Require the use of User IDs and passwords

  • Employ 2-factor/strong authentication tools

  • Install secure communication channels

  • Install costly access controls

  • Limit access based on geography

What if you could substantially

increase your level of security?

  • Proven method to manage and prevent unauthorized access

  • Requires no physical deployments to end-users

  • Easy to install and costs a fraction of other technologies

BUILDS customer confidence and security,

REDUCES recurring fraud losses,

PREVENTS identity theft and

PROTECTS critical IT assets!

How it works l.jpg
How It Works

  • Each digital DNA is sent to

  • the server for authentication

  • and stored in the database

  • This digital DNA is encrypted

  • and arranged in a unique

  • pattern for each device

  • Legitimicreates a unique digital “fingerprint” ID (digital DNA) which captures and inventories a set of hardware such as:

    • Network Adapters

    • CPU

    • Mother Board

    • RAM

    • Hard Drives

    • Video Card

    • BIOS

User PC






Legitimi Digital DNA database

(Secure Services)


  • Customer/user accesses your company’s e-Commerce or e-Banking Web Page or network and his web browser connects to the Legitimi Client

  • Legitimi Client creates the digital DNA of the device and sends it to the Legitimi Authentication Server

  • Server compares it against the DNA associated with user ID stored on the database

  • If a matching DNA is located, a positive authentication is returned, otherwise authentication fails and the user is denied access

(secure services server) and determines who is authorized to access

Consumer features in an ecommerce application l.jpg
Consumer Features in an eCommerce Application

  • Your customers can add more devices anytime by simply logging onto your network and validating a new device

  • Your customers can expand or block access to their group of authenticated devices by simply expanding or closing the access into their group

  • Once your customer closes his trusted

    group of devices, no other devices will

    be allowed into the group

  • Only the original trusted device can

    re-open and close the group of trusted


Customers can manage their accounts from anywhere in the world

Technology descriptions l.jpg
Technology Descriptions

Hard Tokens:

Hard tokens are physical objects the user possesses such as a key, smart card or other devices especially designed for the safekeeping and use of private key data

Soft Tokens:

Software that emulates hard tokens (software kernel incorporated in the device)


The identification of a user based on a

physical characteristic, such as a fingerprint, iris, face, voice or hand-writing (signature)

Digital Certificates:

A digital certificate is an electronic “identification card" that establishes your credentials when conducting business or other transactions

SIM Cards / USB Tokens:

Uses a combination of physical device plus a digital certificate is loaded on the device.

Cons:Very expensive. Distribution problems. High administrative overhead.

Cons: Expensive. Less secure.

Cons: Requires very expensive hardware and supporting components. Difficult to implement and manage.

Cons: Distribution and maintenance of certificates are difficult. Not user friendly.

Cons: Expensive with high administration.

Slide19 l.jpg

Examples of Strong Authentication End-User Devices

Physical Strong Authentication devices must be physically available with the user and/or installed on the machine when the end user wishes to authenticate.

Smart Cards and USB tokens are both inserted into computers so that their digital certification can be read and used as part of the authentication process. These cost normally between $5 and $20 per card / token.

Fingerprint readers identify the user by the users fingerprint, although they are normally deployed as a finger print replacement not bringing strong authentication. These normally cost $15 - $30 per reader.

KEYFOB Token with 4 year 6 digit entry changing every 60 seconds.

Very expensive, this normally cost $20 - $40 per Fob.
