The Japanese tech giant Sony offered the use of blockchain technology when creating a system of multifactor authentication of users in the performance of certain transactions. The corresponding patent application was published on October 26 on the website of the US Patent and Trademark Office, CoinDesk reports.
The document describes the use of two separate blockchain-platforms, which interact with each other within the framework of the Multifactor User Authentication (MFA) system.
This principle assumes that the user, in addition to the login and password, must also enter additional code that is generated with each new entry to a particular site or platform.
According to the idea of Sony developers, these codes will generate one blockchain platform, after they will be transferred to the second platform to confirm the user's identification data when attempting to commit a transaction.
Possible transactions, as they say in the application, include "transfer of assets and the generation of contracts."
