A safer and powerful alternative to traditional password-based access mechanisms.
SSHLock is a software security product that implements the innovative security concept described in : SSHLock: a secure access mechanism - A white paper, by Franck Porcher, PhD.
SSHLock mimics the key features found in real security access locks (eg. bank entries) to provide IT systems with a super-secure access mechanism called an "sshlock".
An sshlock is essentially a restricted pass-thru device between the outside world and the computer's content -- two environments that should not be in direct contact with one another. It is secured at both ends by tight monitor and control access mechanisms, just like bank's security doors, designed to screen access requests and make unauthorized entries impossible.
SSHLock brings's a wealth of security features that turn your computers into impenetrable bastion hosts, providing a safe, easy and reliable access for authorized people while transparently defeating attackers' attempts to break in.
SSHLock is a powerful and desirable alternative to the vulnerable traditional password-based access mechanisms.
SSHLock is an innovative security product, a safer and powerful alternative to "standard" SSH and password-based access mechanisms.
Designed to eliminate the threats posed by password mechanisms, SSHLock transparently upgrades computers into bastion hosts virtually impossible to break in and steal valuable content from.
SSHLock is not a repair kit aimed at fixing a compromised computer.
SSHLock is a preventive security product specifically designed to ensure your are not becoming the next cybercrime statistic, either as an individual or as a sysadmin in charge of your company's valuable IT systems.
Password attacks are the simplest and the most common means to break in IT systems. Unless we ourselves become a cybercrime victim, we may never know just how much of a problem malicious hacking is :
The main causes for this situation are the vulnerabilities that plague the traditional password-based authentication mechanism that still is today, by far, the most common way to access a computer :
SSHLock works by mocking-up thru software the key features found in real Security Access Locks (eg. bank entries) to provide IT systems with a super secure access mechanism called an "sshlock".
An "sshlock" (cf. diagram on the right) is essentially a restricted pass-thru device (i.e. a "buffer") between the outside world and the computer's content -- two environments that should not be in direct contact with one another.
The "sshlock" (cf. diagram on the right) is secured at both ends by tight monitor and control access mechanisms designed to screen access requests and make unauthorized entries impossible (just like a bank's security doors).
As a safer and powerful alternative to traditional password-based access mechanisms, SSHLock is the ultimate secure access solution in countless situations where protecting investments is paramount.
The following are obvious scenarios where using SSHLock shines:
Due to on-going transfer of our content distribution and back-end processing to our new operator, our Downloading and Buying operations will be momentarily suspended.
We are planing to resume full operation on Monday, 6 March 2017.
SSHLock installs a virtual Security Access Lock into your computer.
Its secure layered access architecture (see diagram on the left) is designed to remove all threats associated with password security attacks, making any attempt to break in your machines and steal your valuable content virtually impossible.

However, this extra security does not have to come at a cost.
SSHLock seamlessly integrates with your computing
We are working hard towards completing a live, online sandbox where you could play your mind installing and running SSHLock. However they are a few challenges on the path -- security and scalability for instance -- and it might just take us a little while more before this is completed.
In the midtime, there are a few acceptable substitutes:
1. Download the SSHLock tarball
Pick-up the tarball that closely corresponds to your hardware
platform (e.g. i386, x86_64) and your Operating System.
For example : sshlock-1.26-freebsd-x86_64-20161218-024039.tar.gz
2. Extract the SSHLock tarball
3. Check the integrity of the SSHLock software
4. Install the SSHLock software
1. Review the SSHLock usage
2. SSHLock' your machine
3. Install your cryptographic keys to allow SSHLock to grant you access
To buy your SSHLock Product License, please see "License" below.
Once your transaction is completed, you will receive an email to invite you to proceed with installing the SSHLock Product Licenses you just bought on your machines (SSHLock licenses never expire. You need one license per machine to protect).
We have worked hard to make the process of installing SSHLock Product Licenses as simple and transparent as possible. The email you will receive will include a master-code. To install an SSHLock license on a machine, given you already have installed the SSHLock software, simply start SSHLock on the machine and provide the email address that was used for buying the licenses as well as the master-code as shown below (the "," between the email address and the master-code is mandatory):
To review the SSHLock Product License on a given machine, simply run the following command:
Please let us know of any concern you may have, or any difficulty you may experience in installing and using SSHLock. We can help you in several different ways!

Harden SSHLock (if you are paranoid as I am)
As a young and independant software engineering company specialized in releasing high quality innovative software products, the product licenses you buy from us are our only source of income to recoup our investment and to keep going with what we love to do best.
The price of our software products is set reasonably low so anyone genuinely interested can afford it. You need a single SSHLock Product License per machine you want to protect with SSHLock. SSHLock licenses never expire, and can easily be transfered from a machine to another, or reinstated upon a platform software reinstallation.
Our general policy is to turn all our products into Open-Source software once we have recouped our initial investment (plus a little bonus to help us fund our next products). To remain absolutely independant, we refuse any kind of sponsorship : as individuals and corporate IT sysadmins, you are our only sponsors!
Some companies fund their work by maintaining two versions of their products, usually a full-featured commercial version and a free downgraded Open-Source version. We dislike the ethics behind the idea : not only does this cost more resources to produce and maintain without any added value (someone has to pay for this extra work somehow, usually you ;) ), but we believe it also fuels the "caste war", something we oppose.
When SSHLock becomes open source, hopefully in a year or two, maybe sooner, everyone will have free access to the full-version at no cost.
