Solutions

When it comes to identity management there is no single solution for every need. In the world of biometrics the number of ways to solve a problem are as numerous as a body's unique traits. Here you will find a list of biometric solutions organized by modality (fingerprint, iris, face, voice, etc.) as well as the companies that provide them.

Behavioral

Behavioral Biometrics –Click here to see the behavioral biometrics solutions directory– What are Behavioral Biometrics? Humans are creatures of habit. The way we walk, the way we type, how we move our cursors around on a website’s login or checkout page—these are deeply ingrained rituals that, while we don’t necessarily realize it consciously, are unique to us.…

Face

Face Facial recognition technology identifies a subject using the unique characteristics of her face. In consumer technology, facial recognition can be found on smartphones, using a device’s front-facing camera to capture a user’s biometrics and compare them to a stored template. This kind of technology is used to protect everything from lockscreens to banking apps.…

Fingerprint

Fingerprint Though the most famous mobile devices that scan the tips of fingers are on Apple and Samsung smartphones, the history of this biometric modality and mobility is decades old. The first mobile fingerprint scanner was used in law enforcement—a biometric reader designed for use inside of a police squad car. That the technology has now entered…

Iris

Iris Iris biometrics measure the unique patterns in the colored part of a user’s eye. Incredibly accurate, quick and contactless, biometrics that scan a user’s irises are considered ideal for wearable technology and Internet of Things applications. Indeed, on residential door locks, the technology has proven popular, winning awards at physical access conferences. Recently, iris-based identity solutions have…

Other

Other Mobile ID is at the frontier of biometric technology. New modalities are making their way to the mobile sphere so often, that identity management platforms have been built to accommodate the every evolving authentication landscape. Below you will find information and news pertaining to behavioral biometrics, walking gait recognition, ear shape authentication and modalities…

Second Factor

Second Factor User authentication is in a period of transition and that has necessitated second factor security. One thing almost everyone seems to agree on is that passwords have become a security liability, and though many major organizations and companies like Microsoft and Apple have placed their chips on biometrics, others have taken the two-factor route.  Two-factor…

Smartphones

Smartphones At the heart of the mobile revolution is, of course, the mobile device. Smartphones are an integral part of the way we interact with the online world, be it for business, finance or personal account use. As users continue to choose their mobile handset over their desktop and notebook computers, keyboard-based methods of authentication…

Vital

Vital Vital biometrics—the measurement of a user’s internal body functions, like heart rate, ECG and blood oxygen level—play a special role in Mobile ID. While they have traditionally been the stuff of fitness tech for people who like to micromanage their jogging, recent innovations have allowed for these kinds of biometrics to flood into the healthcare…

Voice

Voice As a contactless biometric modality, voice biometrics and speech recognition both have a strong presence in the world of Mobile ID. Allowing for hands free strong authentication, the spoken biometrics are versatile, requiring only a microphone and the proper software. Authenticating by voiceprint brings with it the benefits of being frictionless and hands free, making it…

Wearable Tech

Wearable Tech In the realm of mobility, convenient user interface is a driving factor. As connectivity leads to amazing new innovations—like the Internet of Things and mCommerce—even smartphones seem cumbersome when it comes to finding a way for users to interact with the new digital worlds that have opened up for us. Wearable tech has emerged…
