Several years have gone into the release of such an elaborate platform. Hours of dedication to the technical, legal, and business development have been spent to get us here. Every one person who ever joined our telegram, ‘liked’ our Twitter account, or dedicated their time to testing the platform, we are in your debt and we can only hope that our success is your success.

Now that we are here, let’s discuss what Inheriti really brings as a solution…

At its core, the Community Edition (CE) is decentralized data inheritance in its truest form. Inheriti utilizes blockchain and the patent-pending SafeKey technology to safely distribute encrypted shares of information onto cold-storage devices. To decrypt this data, SafeKey holders must come together and then merge the shares utilizing Inheriti. Only at this point, would the beneficiaries have any knowledge of the information stored [by the plan initiator] in conjunction with the smart-contract on the blockchain. For the merge to occur -this transfer of data-, the party responsible known as the Merge Authority must initiate the process, potentially triggering several deadman switches (DMS) established by the initiator. Should the initiator not intend for the information to be obtained by the beneficiaries, he/she would simply respond to their security DMS features selected. …

This small write-up explains the importance of the Personal Identification Number (PIN) length and covers -in a nutshell- the efforts we invested in some aspects of our SafeKey related security features.

The PIN is similar to password in a way, but differs in complexity and use case. PIN is a short string of characters, easy to remember for the user. On the contrary to the password, PIN cannot be ‘brute-forced’ (that is, all combinations of characters cannot be checked) due to limited attempts the user would be asked for it. For FIDO2, the device will ask for the PIN 8 times, after which it will go to a ‘blocked’ state, disallowing further use of the device until it will be reinitialized (all user data, including attempts counter and the current PIN, will be cleared). For FIDO2 PIN, minimal length defined in the FIDO2 standard, is 4 bytes, and maximum is 63. This means it can hold 63 ASCII characters, or 15 (63/4) 4-byte wide Unicode characters (e.g. UTF-32). FIDO2 standard defines the PIN to be UTF-8 encoded, however device accepts any form, and is encoding agnostic (it compares binary data). FIDO2 PIN is required for FIDO2 registration and authentication actions, as well as using the Resident Keys feature. Since FIDO2 PIN is used for the Custom Storage (CS) access (it is possible to decouple it), it will be required as well for each login action to the CS, to use its features. …
