###When digital identity gets personal… really personal.
We believe the power of cryptography should be in everyone’s hands, literally. Using traditional security tokens means managing them, remembering to bring them everywhere you go, and worrying you might lose them or that they may be stolen. Mobile phones and SMS messages do work for cryptography and two-factor authentication, but cryptographic keys are often stored virtually unguarded on the phone and two-factory SMS messages can be intercepted or even re-routed by malicious attackers or hostile governments.
Amal Graafstra, founder of biohacking company Dangerous Things, recognized that identity and the issues surrounding establishing, managing, validating, and protecting identity are currently a huge mess. Your biological self and the collection of accounts, services, messages, transactions, and records which make up your digital identity exist as two identities, which are only loosely coupled by vulnerable account passwords and impractical or interceptable technologies. With UKI, we can change that. You can be you (and nobody else can), anywhere, all the time. You + UKI means your biological and digital identities can be cryptographically merged, ensuring the one true you is the only you using your devices, sending your messages, reading your email, accessing your accounts, opening your doors, driving your vehicles, and spending your money.
