Challenger P2 Application Diagram


  • Quick, Defeats Bad Calls in ½ Second
  • No Additional User Sign-on Delays
  • Deceptively Easy To Use
  • No User Training Required
  • Transparent to the Hardware and Software
  • No AC Power or Batteries Required
  • Field Programmable (Change or Add)
  • Any Unit can Act as a Lock or Key
  • Over 1 Billion Handshake Combinations that Change with each Call
The Challenger P2 is a field programmable hardware authentication system for dial modem security. It operates on a LOCK and KEY principle similar to Locks and Keys in the home or office. Two nodes are required for a minimum system, but a system can accommodate as many nodes as are necessary. The P2s are completely independent of the hardware and software. They can operate with PCs or MACs with internal or external modems or even with fax machines or any analog equipment for that matter.

The matchbox sized hardware boxes (Lock and Keys) connect to the analog side of the operative modems with RJ-11s. Any call received by a modem with a Lock connected to it will be challenged for the presence of a proper Key at the calling end. If the Key is present, the call will be allowed to progress transparently with no additional delay or operator intervention. However, if there is no Key, or an invalid Key is detected, the call will be defeated within a ½ second and it will never be identified as a modem answered call by war dialers or other equipment.

Any of the units can function as Keys or as a Lock/Key combination. The Locks automatically turn into Keys when used to dial out. There are over 1 billion handshake combinations that change with each call, resulting in an extremely high degree of authentication. No AC power or batteries are required. The units derive their power from the active TelCo lines.

There is only one "MASTER LOCK" within each "Secure System". It may be used as a functional Lock or Key, but it also carries a unique "System Code" and is used to program other auxiliary units if added, with the SAME code. It can also be used to CHANGE the code in all of the units; if any of the auxiliary units are lost or not returned by terminated employees. This can be done locally or remotely.

In spite of its small size and ease of use, the P2 represents a very sophisticated authentication system that is deceptively simple to use. It offers unparalleled flexibility while maintaining a high degree of system integrity.

It can be used alone or as a hardware front end to established password systems for secure "two factor authentication" in stationary or mobile applications. It provides a great way to quickly secure maintenance, telecommuter or any dial access ports without requiring any additional costly user training. Often the savings in training costs can justify the cost of the product.
