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.

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.
