KeyToPortal is a service that allows people to log in to their favorite portals and platforms using their phones. The users go to the authorization page, enter the code in the mobile app and continue using all the features of the portal.
The app also has an admin panel to manage users who have access to the portals, as well as to view statistics.
The customer is the owner of a popular web portal.
Authentication, security, media and entertainment.
The challenge was to create an app that will let the users log in to any portal using secret codes entered into the application on their smartphones. The main client’s requirement was to provide as much safety and security as possible.
To solve the problem, we implemented several ways of code encryption before the user sees the code and after it was entered into the app. To improve the security of data exchange, we used a real-time connection model between the server and the client.
We used Angular 8 and Angular Material to build a web application for authorization using the OAuth 2.0 Protocol, JSON Web Token, and the .NET platform. To provide real-time client-server communication, we used the SignalR library and WebSockets. We applied some encryption methods to provide maximum data reliability.
We created a solution to let the users quickly and securely log in to any portal, while portal owners get detailed information about their visitors. As people are used to browsing the web via smartphones, the number of portals’ visitors increased by 21.5%.
