UKISS Hugware ® : The Revolutionary Wallet

The Hugware is a Singapore-designed hardware device that provides cold storage of private keys to crypto assets and DIDs ( more on our Self- Sovereign Identity and Security framework in Part I ).
How Hugware works : 1 . The Hugware comprises twin cryptographic devices that act as the Authentication- Key ( A-Key ) and Rescue-Key ( R-Key ), respectively .
2 . Since the A-Key protects the private key , crypto-users will only need to plug the A-Key into the computer when performing a transaction , saving them from revealing private keys to a network .
3 . If the user loses the A-Key , the user can replace it and sync it again with the R-Key , replacing the need for 24-word recovery phrases .
Suppose the user misplaces the R-Key password or PIN , UKISS is working with IBM to develop a semi-custodian service for $ KISS holders to access their R-Key password using biometric information . No risk is involved in this method since the device is still in the user ’ s possession .
Potential in DIDs and 2-FA Authentication
As previously mentioned , Hugware ’ s private key security protects a wide range of assets . They include Decentralised Identifiers ( DIDs ), which contain verifiable credentials like identification documents ( more about the UKISS Self- Sovereign Identity and Security framework in Part I ).
The Hugware ’ s potential as a DID wallet will allow IDs to be portable and verifiable across multiple blockchains and metaverse platforms – something that we believe will be in high demand as more venture into Web 3.0 .
Hugware ’ s ability to directly authenticate a person based on verifiable information could also potentially replace the traditional method of providing mobile numbers and email addresses for two-factor authentication on the internet .
