Biometric Update

  1. EyeLock has been issued a U.S. patent relating to technology that uses conditions of the iris to predict a time sequence for acquiring a high probability of quality iris images. As noted in the application for U.S. Patent No. 9,633,260, the invention uses conditions about the iris to predict an upcoming time window during which there is a high probability that quality iris images can be acquired for biometric purposes. During this limited timeframe, a limited number of images with
  2. Gigya has published a new study entitled “2017 State of Consumer Privacy and Trust survey”, revealing that many people have poor password habits with 42 percent of consumers admit to using four or fewer passwords across online accounts. The research shows how consumer trust and a business’s reputation remain uncertain as brands delay adoption of stronger authentication methods to protect online consumer identities. The survey found that 68 percent of consumers are concerned about how brands use their personal data,
  3. Elan Microelectronics has issued its financial results for Q1 2017, reporting net profits of NT$140 million (US$4.654 million), according to a report by Digitimes. The earnings represent a 13.58 percent decline over the previous quarter but a 27.3 percent increase over the same period one year earlier. Meanwhile, the company’s earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter were NT$0.34 compared to NT$0.40 in the previous quarter and NT$0.26 in the same period one year earlier. The company also saw its
  4. GET Group North America has released its GET CIV card, a Commercial Identity Verification (CIV) smart card compliant with the U.S. government’s FIPS201-2 specifications for identity credentials. The credential card is a secure corporate ID which combines physical and digital identification, establishing a high level of trust in both logical and physical access systems within the issuing organization’s PKI and policies. Organizations can rapidly issue the GET CIV card to ensure compliance with FIPS201-2 and Personal Identity Verification (PIV). The
  5. Day two of ID4Africa 2017 wrapped up with hundreds of delegates from dozens of African nations remaining deep in discussion late into the evening in host city Windhoek, Namibia. The second day of the third annual ID4Africa forum was highlighted by seven information sessions covering a wide range of specific topics in digital identity, as well as a day-long session on document security. Each of the forum’s day two sessions included several speakers, with topics including overcoming ID systems challenges
  6. With approximately 45 percent of the world’s 1.1 billion people without legal identity living in Africa, according to new World Bank statistics, the opportunity for companies in biometrics and the broader identity ecosystem are clear. The challenges are also well known, with lack of electricity, digital infrastructure, political will, and budget, along with other challenges present in different combinations and degrees in each country. Over 90 companies are exhibiting their technical answers to these challenges in the expo hall of
  7. Researchers at National Technical University of Athens in Greece have developed a way to exploit quantum mechanics to securely identify individuals, according to a report by Technology Review. Michail Loulakis and his team say that quantum biometrics makes identification more accurate and harder for fraudsters to exploit to gain unauthorized access. Based on the principle that the human eye can detect single photons, the new technique involves special light-detection equipment that relies on rhodopsin molecules in retinal rod cells to
  8. Integrated Biometrics announced the FIVE-0 compact scanner, which the company claims is the first FBI-certified, AFIS compatible 10-finger scanner. According to a company statement, the compact FAP501 units are “extremely rugged and deliver high quality scans under conditions that limit other technologies, such as latent fingerprints, dirt, heat, cold, bright lights, and direct sunlight.” The mobile 10-finger enrollment and verification device is used by global law enforcement, military, intelligence, border control, and social service agencies. In addition, FIVE-0 supports national
  9. Sensory has released version 5.0 of its TrulyHandsfree speech recognition system, which includes significant updates to the embedded AI to significantly increase its performance and accuracy while staying small and low power. Incorporating Sensory’s smartest and most efficient deep neural network technologies to date, TrulyHandsfree 5.0 delivers an on-device voice user interface experience that is more natural and intuitive than previous versions. The product’s new shallow learning approach reduces the model sizes to operate in ultra-low power and with minimal
  10. SpeechPro, the US-based subsidiary of STC Group, is showcasing its voice authentication solutions VoiceKey.AGENT and VoiceKey.FRAUD at Finovate Spring 2017 taking place this week in San Jose. Both solutions are based on the multi-modal biometric authentication platform VoiceKey. VoiceKey.AGENT is a solution that allows verifying client’s identity by voice, in a real-time during a conversation between a customer and an operator of contact center. VoiceKey displays the verification result on the operator’s screen. If there is no matching and call
