Blockchain Single Sign-On

Let’s explore how BSSO (Blockchain Single Sign-On) is capable of re-engineering cybersecurity and SaaS data protection.

Some solution providers are assisting law firms in securing their data. SpinOne has developed a groundbreaking Blockchain Single Sign-On solution (BSSO) to address compliance and regulatory challenges.

BSSO automates regulatory and compliance processes, ensuring adherence to standards and federal laws such as ISO 27001, EU Model clauses, HIPAA BAA, FISMA, GDPR, and more. It provides password-free access to critical SaaS data through an easily installable SSL certificate on any device.

BSSO offers a high level of certificate protection throughout all stages, enabling secure access and sharing of highly confidential documents from anywhere. Unlike traditional PKI systems, it establishes trust based on checksum verification stored in the blockchain, eliminating security issues related to certificate chains.

Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) are not required for certificate validation as data stored in the distributed network block is always accessible for verification. Even if blockchain-based solution providers’ keys are compromised, issued certificates remain intact.

When verifying a user’s certificate, the blockchain is accessed through a web service. This innovative solution provides law firms with a robust and secure approach to data protection, addressing compliance and regulatory challenges. BSSO leverages blockchain technology to offer a trustworthy means of authentication, enabling secure access and sharing of sensitive information while maintaining the highest levels of data security.

Basic Principles of Blockchain Single Sign-On Solution

  • The confirming factor is the permission to access the profile through the API of leading cloud providers such as Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, etc.
  • The Blockchain-based Single Sign-On solution provider doesn’t store the personal data of its customers. After the certificate is created, the client data is completely deleted from the solution provider’s servers.
  • The certificate is stored only on the client’s device.
  • Checksums of certificates are stored in the blockchain decentralized network, therefore, it is impossible to replace the existing certificate or create a fake one.
  • The client must have an active account at G Suite or Office 365.
