Password Powered Manager (PPM)

Today The Problem Of Terrorism Has Become So Grave That Whatever The Measures We Take To Curb IT, SOONER or Later It Gets Ruined By The Terrorists. We Talk Of Technology But If It Is A Boon Then At The Same Time It Is A Curse Too. WHENEVER WE INVENT OR INNOVATE SOMETHING NEW, Sooner IT BECOMES A NEW TOOL FOR THE ANTI SOCIAL ELEMENTS .WE DISCOVERED THE POWER OF NUCLEAR ENERGY, THEY HATCHED IT AND NOW THEY PUT US ON GUN POINT.ORVILLE WRIGHT IN 1903 HAD NEVER THOUGHT OF WHILE FLYING HIS FIRST ENGINE CONTROLLED AIRPLANE THAT ON SEP 11,2001 THE BLOOD SUCKERS WILL BLAST IT IN WORLD’S TOWERS OF ESTEEM WTC ,ONE DAY TAKING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT LIVES.BE IT TNT(TRI NITRO TOLUENE) ONCE USED TO BLOW UP ROCKS TO BUILD ROADS FOR THE FUTURE EXPANSION OF MANKIND NOT FOR PUTTING THEIR LIVES AT STAKE OR IT IS DEADLY ANTHRAX,THE MAKERS HAVE BECOME TAKERS.SO BETTER LATE THAN NEVER THAT WE NEED TO TAKE A LESSON FROM THE HISTORY THAT WHILE INVENTING OR DEVELOPING SOMETHING NEW ,TOGETHER WE SHOULD FOCUS ON DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCESS OR SYSTEM LEST THIS SHOULD NOT BECOME A BOON FOR SOCIAL DYNAMITES AT ANY POINT OF TIME IN THE FUTURE.RATHER IT SHOULD DESTROY ITSELF BEFOREHAND.SO “SCIENCE WITH SENSIBILITY” SHOULD BE THE SLOGAN OF THE DAY.
IF POINT IS TAKEN, WE NEED TO THINK ON THE LINES THAT IF WE CAN STILL AVOID THE UN RIGHTFUL USAGE OF THE ALREADY INVENTED TECHNOLOGIES.
I HAVE ONE IDEA THAT I HAVE AN URGE TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.
password powered manager” (ppm) is a device that can restrict the unlawful entry in the system. let me take the opportunity to discuss it in detail and its probable usage.it is a light weight electronic device with the following points of access

a) display screen: this screen displays the information like active password etc.
b) finger print identification pad: this is the sensor which identifies the impression of the finger of the user. to activate the device THE USER HAS TO slide his finger against the pad. the finger print is user specific which has to be registered before the release of ppm.
c) microphone: it records the voice of the user. can be used as an additional tool for double layer security to access the DEVICE.
d) locater: this feature works on GPS technology. will help to precisely LOCATE THE user .it is an additional feature.
e) reset button: it refreshes the device and displays fresh information
f) POWER Switch: it is A power on/off SWITCH.


this password powered manager works as an interface between the user and the administrator web SERVER (aws). the user and the “aws” are linked through the satellite.
Pre-Registration: The device has to be pre registered with one central agency. the user will have to register his fingerprint and voice print apart from other required details like name ,address etc.only after the complete verification the device will be activated. same information will be shared with Interpol.

this ppm has got enormous benefits, some of which are illustrated below.

usage no 1: never loose your password and other important information.
today it is the age of Internet. for everything we have to rely on the web.
be it Internet banking, EMAILS, DE MAT trading, life partner search etc.there are different websites providing respective services. here you have to create one user id with a pain to remember user id.if you forget this then the things come to a halt until you request for a new password from the website and they provide you one. even for putting a valid request you first need to answer some questions to verify your genuiness.
now imagine a life where you don’t need to worry about loosing or remembering the password. yes ,with this device not only you will ever loose your password but also it will be more secure than before. here i suggest a time and location based password to be displayed on your ppm screen.

time based password: after every 15 seconds a new password is generated is sent to the ppm device.
location based password: here when you request for a password ,the server will first ascertain your location ,then it will issue the relevant password.
for example if you are in Mumbai, India
the password will be: mumin12345
and, if you in KARACHI, PAKISTAN
the password will be: krhpk12345
now you will be thinking why location based password.actually all these details will be saved in the back end and will be matched with your travel plan .if you are going outside India the server will take details from immigration department. if you are visiting in India ,the you can upload your travel plan to the server. it will assure you to reduce the risk of duplicate usage of your device. so if you are in Karachi and you get a password like mumind12345 then you will come to know about the possible fraud and can report it asap to stop its misuse.

HERE, THE website hosts have to play a major role. especially for the hosts which provide sensitive services like Internet banking etc.they have to tie up with AWS (ppm).whenever requested by aws(ppm) the host server will have to generate a new password and to be sent to aws(ppm) .aws(ppm) will in turn send this information to the user.
i suggest a one step further, as today anti social elements use email as a potent tool to spread their communication. it can be stopped if the email service providers are also asked to register with ppm services. so whenever i have to log in my mail account i have to use my ppm service. as soon as i use my ppm device my location will be recorded. and i am writing something nuisance i can be trapped.ppm access has to be made compulsory for all email account holders. as ppm user is already registered with the central agency so any activity can be easily traced and registered with proof.also,to open a new email account one has to use his ppm device.so if i have 3 accounts say one with rediff ,gmail and yahoo ,i will be identified as a single user. this will reduce the risk of usage of fraudulent ids.today some abc@gmail.com can easily send a threat mail to anybody without the fear of getting trapped.

this is not the end of its usage profile. you can also upload your important information with the ppm website like meeting with someone ,wake up call etc. and in turn ppm device will remind you.
so practically you will never forget important things again.

usage 2: check illegal usage of mobile phones

today the underworld use this technology to give threats to their potential targets. and today there is no way to stop this. either you change your no, or debar all incoming calls this will affect your business.is there a way through which i can assure only genuine incoming calls and those making it dirty will be trapped?
yes ppm provides a solution for this also .
here we have a develop a “mobile access code”(numeric only) which will again be time as well as location based .this code will be required to call a particular mobile no.if i am the caller and i am to call mr.x ‘s mobile ,then i will have to first retrieve “mobile access code” using my ppm device. then i will have to suffix this code to the receiver’s mobile no. say i have to call mr. x whose mobile no is 9898912345.in order to call him i will have to retrieve mobile access code for this no using my ppm device enter this mobile no. in my ppm device then the ppm device gives a 4 digit code as 1234 against this mobile no.so in order to call mr. x i will dial 9898912345-1234.
Say if i am making a threat call to him, then he can immediately register this to the police. police will immediately trace me as i have used my ppm device to call him. they can also come to know my present location. now i am trapped.

in order to activate this service mr. x has to first activate this ppm service.

usage 3: tracing anti social activities

there is one voice recorder system "activated" on the ppm device all the time. it recognises and understands certain uncommon noises and reports it immediately to the aws without the knowledge of the user.aws in turn analyses it thoroughly and in case of doubt the matter will be reported to police. one check point for ppm device. to keep it activated it should be within 2 meter form your reach and if it is out from your reach for more than 10 minutes, it will be deactivated automatically.
