As a result of this, is it
not reasonable to have to think about storing our PINs securely?
CODER ”Made in Germany” is a pocket-memo-card for people
on the go. Its variable master code not only enhances
the encryption of four-figure PINs from 10.000 variation options to
810.000 – five-figure PINs have 100.000 variation options by comparison
– but it also helps avoid the risky ”pooling effect”
and what is known as ”password ageing”. It even denies access
to your encrypted PIN even if a thief is aware of your access or key
number (same as a password) to the encryption system.
This is because the double
security encryption produced by the VARIABLE MASTERCODE
has not only been acknowledged by the grant of an EU patent but the
PIN CODER has also been used in practice at Germany’s largest
banking and finance group having undergone testing by the safety committee
of the German banking associations.

The PIN CODER’s mechanical
encryption, which in terms of its cryptologic definition
is essentially not decodable and is completely independent of electronic
access, such as the Internet, cannot be
infected by viruses, trojans or other cyber attacks,
which penetrate even the most advanced security systems, nor will its
battery fail, so it is always ready to use.
particular advantage of mechanical encryption with the VARIABLE MASTERCODE,
however, is that even if a thief were to enter the one
out of 810.000 number combinations by chance, which
is required to gain access to the system, the PIN CODER would not display
this like a combination lock, which opens when set correctly; even if
the master code (same as a password) is set correctly, none of the encrypted
PINs is recognised as a “correct PIN”.
Please note that when storing
secret numbers or PINs the protection
of large sums of money may be involved.
• Due to the lack of
alternatives, much of the individually applied self-generated
encryption by amateur “cryptologists” is
generally well known to experts and talented thieves as typical “human
thought patterns”. Look up “the least secure PIN codes”
• The reality of everyday
life teaches us that factors such as these always enable thieves to
have easy access to accounts protected by PINs or passwords and to steal
from unwary account holders.
When choosing your VARIABLE
MASTERCODE, not withstanding all the PIN CODER’s above mentioned
security features, you should be aware that any self-generated PIN,
such as the year of your birth, is generally regarded as more insecure
than a PIN from what is known as a random generator, which scientific
studies have also confirmed.
To remember these “abstract”
PINs, the old memory hook or mnemonic principle is generally useful,
for which you will find instructions online.
However, the user
is responsible for operating the PIN CODER properly.
