White Paper   |   Mobile Biometric Authentication: Device-centric vs. server-centric architecture

2019-04-01T13:55:59-04:00By |

Multiple biometric modalities for authentication can achieve higher biometric performance. Introduction: Biometrics use “inherent” factors (something the user is) to authenticate a user’s identity. Relative to knowledge- and possession-based authentication methods (something the user knows and something the user has), inherent authentication factors like biometrics are difficult to steal and spoof. We can’t easily tell when a fraudster uses a stolen password or mobile device, but with biometrics and liveness detection we can better detect when a fraudster is at work so that their access can be prevented.

Mobile biometric authentication: A password-free future comes into focus

Introduction If you looked into your Magic 8-Ball and asked, “Will I ever be able to stop using passwords for authentication?” it would certainly reply: “Outlook good.” And the outlook is good considering biometrics are making authentication simpler and more secure than ever. Passwords have never looked so retro. But if you asked us the same question, [...]

Mobile biometric authentication: Multimodal approaches for improved matching and spoof detection

2019-04-01T14:18:00-04:00By |

The Future of Mobile Authentication: Multimodal Biometrics - The vast majority of modern authentication implementations strive to maximize both security and convenience; that is, to: - Make it as difficult as possible for a fraudster to steal or spoof the rightful user’s authentication factors (e.g. device, password, token, biometric). - Avoid interference with access to the protected asset or service for the rightful user. - Dissuade the user from circumventing the intended security mechanisms.

In talk about large-scale biometric systems, we hear a lot about algorithm performance: speed, accuracy, template size, false accept and reject rates, ROC and DET curves, etc. These are critical to knowing if a biometric algorithm is up to the task at hand. But we hear less about how these systems achieve their massive scale; [...]
