The USB Implementers Forum, a non-government and non-profit organization that certifies USB cables, has developed advanced technology that is capable of detecting whether a USB cable that is plugged into a device is certified.
Faulty and low-quality USB cables are a very widespread problem, with many customers falling pretty to cables that either damage their system or compromise their security. This system makes use of a cryptographic authentication protocol that is capable of detecting if a cable is of good quality or not.
Ultimately, the USB Implementers Forum's software and service will ensure that customers are promptly warned if they're using substandard USB cables, helping mitigate the possibility of suffering battery drainage or hardware damage as a result of using a faulty cable.
This Technology Identifies Faulty and Electricity-Sapping USB Cables
1. USB Cable Authentication - Advanced technology is capable of detecting whether a USB cable that is plugged into a device is certified.
2. Cryptographic Authentication Protocol - A cryptographic authentication protocol is capable of detecting if a cable is of good quality or not.
3. Faulty Cable Detection - Detection of substandard USB cables, helping mitigate the possibility of suffering battery drainage or hardware damage as a result of using a faulty cable.
1. Consumer Electronics - Opportunities for companies that manufacture and sell consumer electronics can capitalize on the need for better cable quality assurance solutions.
2. IT Security - IT security companies can leverage on cable-authenticating software to prevent USB cables from compromising sensitive data and systems.
3. Home Automation - Home automation companies can provide better product quality assurance by ensuring that only certified cables are used with their products, ultimately avoiding potential damage or battery drainage issues.
