Mobile Biometric Authentication

Learn More

In today’s increasingly digital world, individuals rely heavily on mobile devices to access their personal information. However, these consumer facing devices and applications open up a larger attack surface for hackers, who can easily tap into phones to discover passwords and then use them to steal consumers’ information.

Enter mobile biometric authentication – solutions that utilize facial and voice recognition to enable secure and convenient multifactor authentication without passwords. Biometric and two-factor authentication are rapidly becoming the gold standard when it comes to identity management and authentication, as they can more accurately confirm that users accessing the system are legitimate.

What We Do

Aware’s Knomi® platform enables passwordless multifactor authentication using face- and voice-based biometrics and liveness detection. It is available in either device-, server-, or browser-based implementations.

Knomi® Mobile Biometric Authentication

The Knomi® mobile biometric authentication solution includes a family of biometric matching and liveness detection algorithms. It uses facial and voice recognition to ensure secure and convenient multifactor authentication without relying on less effective and more easily circumvented passwords.

Knomi’s advanced attack detection algorithms are essential for onboarding and authentication. Enterprise security teams can also use Knomi for identity proofing as part of a mobile onboarding solution. Its advanced security checks can authenticate driver’s licenses and passports. It also provides spoof-resistant biometric facial matching between live and printed images, which is critical when preventing duplicates and running checks against watch lists.

Knomi can detect not only victim impersonation spoofs, but also identity concealment spoofs, which can have an adverse effect on using facial images for other biometric identity proofing functions.

The range of Knomi system functions includes:

Knomi DocAuth

Knomi includes a solution for document authentication and facial matching, which is ideal for biometric identity proofing as part of a mobile onboarding process using a government-issued credential such as a driver’s license or passport. Knomi DocAuth can be implemented in either a server-centric or browser-based architecture.

Features include:

  • Assisted capture of credential (front and back)
  • OCR-powered capture of printed and bar-encoded data
  • Detection of document security features (white light)
  • Automated capture of printed facial image and live facial image
  • NIST-tested facial recognition algorithms
  • Robust, multi-algorithm face spoof detection for authentication and identity proofing (paper, digital, video, 2D/3D masks)
  • Comparison of printed to bar-encoded data
  • NFC reading of e-passport chip data
  • Server-centric or browser-based architecture

Knomi DocAuth performs assisted capture of the front and back of the credential, and then automatically extracts the facial image, printed information, and bar-encoded data. It then collects a live facial image, applying several attack detection algorithms to prevent spoofs. A facial match is calculated and analysis of the collected data performed to verify the authenticity of the credential and the identity of its possessor.

Knomi’s advanced face-based presentation attack detection algorithms detect not only authentication spoofs, but also false non-match spoofs that impact the ability to use the biometrics for other biometric identity proofing functions such as watch list checks and duplicate prevention.
