The Evolution of Authentication

Arcanum Technology began by identifying a significant issue: Passwords are being hacked at a rate of 95 accounts per second through seemingly endless new way of cyber breaching. The bottom line is, the current technology put in place to protect our information just is not good enough anymore.

So, what did we do about it? We created nKode, a monumental advancement in passcode authentication technology. It protects user’s online credentials during the authentication process through a well-fortified security framework and groundbreaking cypher algorithm which generates a series of unique tokenized system values to ensure the customer's actual passcode is never exposed to hackers. The interface includes a virtual keypad with an expanded character set that can be customized, with anything from NCAA D1 mascots to Emoticons, based on the individual user’s preference.

nKode also eliminates the struggle we all face of managing and remembering complex, frequently changing passwords across multiple platforms. Our dynamic interface allows for as few as 4 character passcodes and is actually more secure than the standard 8 to 16 characters used today.

SECURE: nKode's randomly shuffled interface leverages our patented cipher algorithm to protects transactional data on the backend, while keeping the character set consistent on the frontend. It is because of this cipher that we can confidently say that we have created the most secure knowledge-based authentication in the market.

At the core of the nKode solution is a cutting-edge cypher algorithm that generates a series of unique tokenized system values to ensure the customer's actual passcode is never exposed. nKode reduces the complexity of passcodes by expanding their character set to include alphanumeric characters, symbols, colors and key position options.


nKode is based on the familiar password methodology. Users enter their passcodes on a virtual keypad that randomly shuffles the input of password attributes for every login. An expanded character set allows users to customize passcode combinations to the images, colors, letters and numbers that are most meaningful and memorable.


nKode is easy to deploy using our standard widget integration or API. The solution is portable to all electronic delivery channels. It can be used in conjunction with other authentication technologies to augment their defenses.
