Design SHIFT Uses Secure NFC Controller from STMicroelectronics to Offer Unique Privacy Appliance

Groundbreaking ORWL Privacy Device to Include ST54D NFC Controller for Two-Factor Authentication

AMSTERDAM — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 13, 2015 — Design SHIFT has collaborated with Geneva-based STMicroelectronics (ST) to integrate ST’s ST54D NFC controller in its groundbreaking privacy appliance, ORWL. This small circular device uses two-factor authentication—a physical key and a password— along with tamper-proof physical hardware to protect people’s personal information and communications from being physically hacked.

“We are proud to work with ST for banking-quality authentication in our ORWL device,” said Olivier Boireau, CEO of Design SHIFT. “People around the world already trust their NFC payments to ST technology. Now they can get the same level of protection for their personal data and private conversations.”

ORWL includes a failsafe kill-switch never before offered to consumers. Any attempt to break into ORWL prevents the device from booting up and shuts it down immediately, like a bank vault. No other security offering delivers this level of protection.

The ST54D NFC controller provides the following critical functionality to the ORWL device:

  • Secure NFC protection implemented in the physical key
  • Both the key and a password are required to activate ORWL, for two-factor authentication
  • Uses the same security technology as mobile payments over NFC

Most importantly, tampering with the ORWL device or attempting a physical breach prevents the device from booting up, instantly securing all of the user’s data and communications like a bank vault that only the user can open.

The ORWL device is slated to ship Spring of 2016. For more information visit www.design-shift.com.
