Mobile Biometric Authentication Framework

The Knomi mobile biometric authentication framework is a collection of biometric SDKs running on mobile devices and a server that together enable strong, multi-factor, password-free authentication from a mobile device using biometrics. Knomi offers multiple biometric modality options, including facial recognition, keystroke dynamics, and voice authentication as means to authenticate. Banks or any other commercial enterprise can deploy Knomi to enhance their password-based authentication mechanisms, making login to their mobile applications more secure and convenient for their customers and employees. Knomi software components can be used in different combinations and configurations to enable either a server-centric architecture or a device-centric, FIDO® Certified implementation.

  • Device- or server-centric biometric matching and template storage
  • Several biometric modality options, including face, keystroke dynamics, and voice
  • High-performance facial recognition with proprietary spoof and liveness detection, addressing multiple attack modes with or without user interaction
  • Keystroke+Face Authenticator captures face and keystroke simultaneously, with fusion of biometric results for boosted accuracy and liveness detection performance
  • Voice Authenticator offers market-leading performance for dynamic voice authentication
  • FIDO® Certified UAF Face Authenticator, Client, and Server
  • All components are available as a la carte SDKs with reference application code
  • iOS and Android versions

Mobile Biometric Authentication Modalities

Device- and server-centric architectures are supported, including FIDO®

Three architectures are supported: Device-Centric, FIDO® Certified, and Server-Centric. Knomi D offers software that performs all functions on the device. Knomi F adds FIDO Certified and FIDO Ready components. Knomi S moves functions to the server, including biometric template creation, matching and storage.

Modular software components are available a la carte or as a bundle

The following illustrates the software components available to satisfy each architecture:

Knomi D

Device-Centric Authentication

Biometric template storage and matching is performed on the device, as are algorithms for autocapture, liveness detection, and spoof detection.

  • Mobile Face Authenticator. SDKs running on the device to perform facial image capture and analysis designed to quickly capture high-quality facial images and detect spoof attempts. Biometric template generation and comparison are also performed. Incorporates elements of Aware’s PreFace and Nexa|Face™ SDKs.
  • Mobile Keystroke+Face Authenticator. This authenticator applies keystroke dynamics and facial recognition simultaneously to achieve exponential performance improvements in both biometric matching and spoof detection.
  • Mobile Voice Authenticator. This authenticator applies high-performance voice authentication, offering an alternative to facial recognition when preferred by the user or in conditions when facial recognition is insufficient.

Knomi F

FIDO® Certified Authentication

Knomi F is a family of software products for biometric authentication that are either FIDO Ready as conformant with the specifications of the FIDO Alliance or additionally FIDO® Certified and interoperable with other FIDO-certified products.

  • FIDO Face Authenticator. FIDO Face Authenticator allows a user to login to a mobile application of a relying party (such as a banking app) using their face for authentication. It applies interactive liveness detection, including eye blinking. The facial biometric sample never leaves the security boundaries of the authenticator application. FIDO Face Authenticator is FIDO Certified.
  • FIDO Keystroke+Face Authenticator. This authenticator applies keystroke dynamics and facial recognition simultaneously to achieve exponential performance improvements in both biometric matching and spoof detection. This authenticator is FIDO Ready.
  • FIDO Voice Authenticator. This authenticator applies high-performance voice authentication, offering an alternative to facial recognition when preferred by the user or in conditions when facial recognition is insufficient. This authenticator is FIDO Ready.
  • FIDO Client. FIDO® Client is the intermediary application that helps to bind FIDO authenticators with the relying party mobile application. FIDO Client can look up all FIDO authenticators on the device, and communicate via JSON messages standardized by the FIDO ASM API. FIDO Client is FIDO Certified.
  • FIDO Server. FIDO® Server enables a relying party server to offer FIDO-based login from their mobile applications. FIDO® Server encapsulates the FIDO features required at the server, such as maintenance of the FIDO login policies, management of the public keys, and verification of the signatures created on the mobile device. FIDO Server is FIDO Certified.

More information about FIDO Certified authentication products can be found here.

Knomi S

Server-Centric Authentication

Biometric template storage and matching are performed on the server, with algorithms for autocapture and liveness/spoof detection operating on both the device and on the server.

  • Mobile Face Client. Application running on the device to perform facial image capture and analysis designed to capture high-quality facial images quickly and to detect spoof attempts. Built upon the PreFace Mobile SDK.
  • Face Authentication Service. Server-based software API for facial template storage and matching. Built upon the Nexa|Face SDK.
  • Face Analysis Service. Server-based API for facial image analysis, including liveness detection and spoof detection. Built upon the PreFace SDK.
  • Keystroke+Face Authentication Service. This authenticator applies keystroke dynamics and facial recognition simultaneously to achieve exponential performance improvements in both biometric matching and spoof detection.
  • Voice Authentication Service. This authenticator applies high-performance voice authentication, offering an alternative to facial recognition when preferred by the user or in conditions when facial recognition is insufficient.

The Future of Mobile Authentication: Multimodal Biometrics

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.
