Identity verification has always been a cornerstone of enterprise security. Businesses must be able to create identities for each of their employees, and determine the extent of access granted to those identities across physical and digital assets. They also need to authenticate the identity of users each time they attempt to access an information system [...]
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.
We often hear about the benefits and applications of “multimodal” biometrics; the use of different biometric modalities together (e.g. fingerprint and face) to increase the performance and enrollment flexibility of biometric search and match solutions. There are cases where going multimodal is an ideal solution, but others where it’s not an attractive option. The benefits [...]
