How SECUREMATRIX Works

Create an easy to remember password image pattern using any location and input order on the matrix table.

To create and use a password image pattern : Users pre-register the image, pattern and sequence that will be used to generate each password.
MATRIX AUTHENTICATION uses a matrix table that generates different numbers each time.

A6.

When does the SECUREMATRIX server certificate expire? The server certificate expires 20 years after the installation. Once the certificate expires, the communication between the servers will stop.
