KB-000361: Is my PIN and Password securely stored in the ShowMate?

The ShowMate stores the handheld PIN and Password information in a secure format.  Impatica is using a SHA-1 function to compute a 160bit message digest that is stored on the ShowMate.  This encryption was designed by the National Security Agency (NSA) making it virtually impossible to extract the original message from the message digest.  This level of security has been accepted by many clients in the fields of finance, security, information technology, and military.
