Release Date



The level of protection offered by current mobile technology when transmitting data has been known to be broken. The KASUMI block cipher used to protect 3G mobile communication has many known exploits, the publically documented and published related key attack in January 2010 proves that the cipher is not secure.

The idea of the Unimate project team is to use a separate authentication device which takes the advantage of proven and effective techniques to provide strong authentication for mobile platform.

As most mobile devices do not have USB port, the popular USB token solution is not suitable for mobile devices. Considering that most mobile devices have audio jack interface, the UniMate is equipped a TRRS to transfer data between mobile devices and UniMate token.

To make the more adaptable, the project team maintained a micro USB to support personal computer, and the internal battery can be charged via the USB port.
