Download: Getting Started – Mobile Biometrics

Getting Started - Mobile BiometricsWelcome to Planet Biometrics’ In Focus page on mobile biometrics. While use of mobile biometric solutions has evolved in step with the larger biometrics market for some time, the growing ubiquity of smart phones and the rapid and dramatic improvements in their features and performance are accelerating the trend. As a result, mobility is becoming an increasingly important part of the biometrics landscape. The time is right to take a closer look at mobile biometrics, and to investigate in greater depth how they can be used to their full potential.The purpose of this article is to initiate a dialog that ultimately [...]

Cloud-Based Biometric Identity Proofing and Authentication Services for Mass Markets | White Paper Cloud-Based Biometric Identity Proofing and Authentication Services for Mass Markets Identity fraud: a trillion dollar problem Some form of identity theft is at the heart of most financially-motivated fraud. A proliferation of personally identifiable information (PII) available through social media and other public sources is easily accessible to aspiring fraudsters, while the anonymity of Internet commerce and communication gives them plenty of cover. Illicit call centers troll for private identity data from unsuspecting consumers and untrained customer service agents. Identity fraud is increasingly committed by sophisticated [...]

  • BioSP Case Studies

Three case studies demonstrate how agencies around the world use Aware’s BioSP™ to process and share biometric data

Biometrics in Government | Case Studies Three case studies demonstrate how agencies around the world use Aware’s BioSP™ to process and share biometric data Biometric search workflows require many processes across multiple systems, especially when several government agencies are exchanging biometric information between different countries. For example, enrolling fingerprints to a biometric database for law enforcement is a very different workflow than enrolling them into a civil database for immigration purposes. Even biometric systems that serve the same function can have different data formats. For example, a biometric search service provided by a U.S. federal law enforcement or [...]

Biometrics on the Road to Automotive Identity Part One: The Connected Car Future This is not your father’s Oldsmobile. After a hundred years of incremental improvements in the performance, efficiency, safety, and reliability of our automobiles, today we are in the midst of what can be argued is a truly revolutionary change in what it means to drive a car. Our vehicles have become supercomputers on wheels, with hundreds of sensors collecting every imaginable datapoint, thousands of times every second. Advances in wireless connectivity such as those promised by 5G networks are transforming the way we hit the [...]

  • Biometrics in Government - Addressing Vendor Lock-in

Addressing Vendor Lock-In in ABIS Systems | White Paper

Biometrics in Government | White Paper Addressing Vendor Lock-In in ABIS Systems “Vendor lock-in” is a term that describes when a technology vendor imposes switching costs upon their customer—intentionally or otherwise—to make it unattractive for them to replace their installed products. It’s done by designing and deploying a system in such a way that makes it exceedingly difficult, risky, or expensive to replace part or all of the system. The effect is that the vendor can earn a virtual monopoly within that account on future product and service revenue. The phenomenon is universal, but vendor lock-in has occurred [...]

Liveness detection in biometrics is essential for mobile authentication and onboarding | White Paper

White Paper Liveness detection in biometrics is essential for mobile authentication and onboarding Mobile biometrics offer banks and other businesses a way to more effectively verify the identities of their new and existing customers. Mobile onboarding allows a prospective banking customer to open an account without visiting a branch. Biometrics make this identity proofing process more robust and secure. New customers can then use their biometrics in place of passwords for more secure and convenient mobile authentication. Facial recognition is a particularly useful biometric modality for mobile onboarding and authentication: ● Nearly all mobile devices have built-in cameras [...]

Biometrics in government: Enhanced security and convenience for citizens | eBook

Biometrics in government: Enhanced security and convenience for citizens A brief history of biometrics Fingerprint-based identification began in law enforcement. An Argentine detective first solved a crime using a latent print (left behind by the perpetrator) in 1892. In 1901, detectives in England and Wales officially began using fingerprints in criminal identification. Their use snowballed from there. By 1946, the FBI managed a library of 100 million fingerprints, according to the U.S. Marshals Service. The agency developed the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) in the 1970s to manage the massive and still-growing collection more effectively. AFIS became “Integrated [...]
