The Zero Trust security model requires a revolutionary shift from traditional authentication methods that have been in use for decades.
While the DoD has mandated migration to zero-trust networks, most organizations are still unclear on how to get started. This briefing outlines why the road to zero trust networks logically starts with ZKX authentication technology.
ZKX™ is a lightweight, platform-agnostic authentication solution suitable for use in tactical, strategic, and zero trust environments. ZKX is based on the mathematical principles of zero-knowledge-proofs, a methodical way in which one party, A (the Prover), can prove their knowledge or possession of some secret to another party, B (the Verifier), without revealing any bits of information about the secret.
ZKX is security software that enables zero-knowledge multi-factor authentication to help meet requirements for Zero Trust. ZKX is an iterative, trust-building software platform designed to bring next-generation multi-factor authentication (MFA) to networks of any kind, from tactical DIL environments to zero-trust, cloud-based enterprises. This one-page datasheet explains ZKX in a concise, easy-to-digest format.
The Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) has rapidly become the hottest topic in cybersecurity. However, we have noticed that today’s discussions inevitably focus on ZTA from the standpoint of the enterprise, ignoring the nuances and pitfalls of implementing ZTA in the tactical domain. Instead of driving the ZTA solely from the top-down, we see an operational benefit in constructing the enterprise ZTA from the bottom-up. This paper will delve into the potential issues with the industry’s current approach and introduce the solution from ZKX.
