SonarLogin is a system that enables users of a PC to perform automatic login/logout using the smartphone as a remote key when the user is near the PC.
Through a continuous authentication solution, this system increases the security of the session avoiding the use of login & passwords. Also includes a Windows credential provider that uses the CopSonic SDK to allow secured automated login in the PC in a way that is fully compatible with all mobile devices. To use this functionality the user device doesn’t need any previous pairing or connection to the PC.
The communication between the PC and the mobile devices is based on CopSonic universal system to exchange secure data by ultrasounds. Compatibility with 100% of devices is guaranteed because only microphones and speakers are necessary.
The system consists of a Windows Service(running all the time in the Operating System of the PC) which handles all the operations, a Manager App(PC desktop app) that allows users to define and control the behaviour of the system, and a Mobile Application running in the user's mobile device, which is used to pair and authenticate with the PC.
How to use it
For using SonarLogin follow these general installation and configuration steps:
To use the Windows credential provider to log into the Windows session the user just needs to enter his/her username and password in the mobile app and press the "Login" button. The app will emit an encrypted ultrasound with the username and password information, which will be received in the PC to log in to the session that corresponds to the provided credentials. Any session in the PC can be accessed this way by simply entering the corresponding credentials in the mobile device, without any pairing or connection (see the Automatic Login section).
