STROKK – an artificial intelligence software that increases the security level of any password by a factor of 10,000, developed by deep technology start-up, ADGS Qatar, will be demonstrated at the Milipol Qatar 2021 exhibition.

STROKK provides a transparent second-factor authentication and an additional layer of security based on the concept of behavioural biometrics or neuromuscular behaviour. According to ADGS CEO Christophe Billiottet, STROKK leaves random password guessing attacks obsolete and stolen credentials entirely insignificant.

STROKK learns the neuromuscular speed processes between the brain and the fingers by means of a regular computer keyboard. It then clearly recognises a particular person from anyone else.

No more imposters

STROKK is a second-factor authentication scheme based on keystroke dynamics for hardening user passwords transparency and a system for secure access control, ensuring imposters that masquerade as valid users are unable to access private or corporate information.

STROKK builds a behavioural biometric template of your unique typing signature and checks it each time you log in — keeping attackers out of your system. Even if hackers guess or steal your password, they can’t type it the same way you do because every single person has a unique way of typing.

Most accurate worldwide

Using Machine Learning and proprietary Artificial Intelligence algorithms, ADGS is proud to demonstrate that their solution is the most accurate currently available worldwide, with less than 0.01% false positive and 1.8% false negative, lowered to 0.2% after a second attempt. This increases password security by a factor of 10,000 at least.

The distinctive aspects of STROKK include:

  • Can be implemented without any change on the user’s side, on any platform, in any language, at any level
  • Adds a cost-effective extra layer of protection: no additional hardware is needed — detects and prevents fraudulent authentication attempts
  • Renders stolen credentials useless
  • Blocks password sharing
  • Certifies a user working on a company PC or server
  • Prevents identity theft
  • Might be used as forensic proof
  • May allow discovering the identity of an impostor if he/she is from the same entity staff

STROKK is currently deployed at a Cyber Defence Center and several banks in the Middle East and the US.

STROKK challenge

ADGS is challenging visitors to try and beat STROKK during the Milipol Qatar 2021 exhibition, from 15 to 17 March. The start-up will offer a QAR5,000 prize to anybody that can successfully log into a computer protected by STROKK. The password will be publicly displayed. The ADGS stand is H057.

Billiottet said that ADGS was founded with the mission to develop ethical algorithms for computers to analyse and reproduce human behaviour without ever using private data. He said that STROKK is one of their most outstanding outcomes from this commitment.
