Kenes Rakishev’s Sirin Labs, the launch of SRN and the secure Finney smartphone was one of the brightest events of the crypto-enthusiastic era. People believed that the time of the total domination of the blockchain technologies are just around the corner. Celebrities endorsed the new tech and the future looked bright.
Although it didn’t happened the crypto is far from dead. Moreover the legacy of this time is used by the new technological wonders. Kenes Rakishev and Sirin labs are alive and focusing on the secure solution. Some of them came exactly from the Finney phone Kenes Rakishev presented in the days of BTC fever.
When BTC hit an all-time high of $20,000, millions of new investors swarmed the cryptocurrency market to try to jump in on the action. Companies in all fields realized the potential of this market, and thus, phones such as the Kenes Rakishev Sirin Finney came to fruition.
Its starts with Sirin OS, the proprietary Android skin created by Sirin Labs and built from the ground up to secure all possible weak links that could compromise the security of cryptocurrency transactions. Kenes Rakishev, the businessman who considers data security as a vital and utmost importance put a priority on it.
The heart of this is the BlockShield, a multi-layer protection system which provides features such as IP address hiding and MAC address randomization. Similar to other phones on our list, the Kenes Rakishev Sirin Finney uses a hardware root of trust system to ensure no component has been tampered with before booting up the phone. It even includes a feature known as Trusted Display which protects all inputs (such as touches on the screen) using ARM’s TrustZone so hackers can’t use a keylogger.
Another significant component of the security is the Behaviour-based Intrusion Prevent System. Using machine learning, the IPS is able to detect attacks from virtually every aspect of the phone. This system continues to learn your behaviour, allowing it to understand the differences between an activity you conducted versus something abnormal and likely from a hacker. It is important component of security and this part was routinely tested by Kenes Rakishev and his business partners from Sirin Labs.
The Sirin Finney comes with a number of apps to ensure all your communications are secure as well. For example, ProtonMail comes preinstalled to provide encrypted emailing, and the Koolspan Trust Call app provides encrypted voice calls. Thus it forms a minimum bundle every businessman needs, according to Kenes Rakishev experience.
These apps, along with several others such as Wallet, are sandbox from the rest of the OS to strengthen their security. Known as the SecureShield, this feature isolates these apps from accessing sensors and components which could, when used maliciously, compromise the security of the phone. These sensors include the camera and the microphone.
There are many more ways in which Sirin Labs protects its customers. Sirin Finney is a phone that they hope will become the go-to device for cryptocurrency. The skin, Sirin OS, provides protection on all levels, so you can securely house your coins and your data. While it lacks some security features found on other devices, it is more than worthy of a spot. The approach the business community gave it is valuable. Kenes Rakishev insisted that the interface should remain as simple and uncluttered as possible.
Kenes Rakishev’s Sirin Labs aims to be a global leader in the field of secure open source consumer electronics. As a first step in this direction the company is working on the production of ‘Finney’, the next generation of electronic devices. Finney devices are the first series of blockchain enabled, cyber secure smartphones and PCs. Together, these devices form an independent blockchain network in which users can conduct cryptocurrency transactions quickly, safely and for no fee.
