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 ideal for Internet of Things applications and wearable tech. Highly specialized in certain niches, vocal authentication also bolsters other biometric modalities like facial recognition, often used as an additional factor in high security scenarios.
To best understand the specialized nature of this contactless modality, check out this special webinar on the topic.

Samsung SDS is a global information and communication technology (ICT) service provider, striving to help customers increase their competitiveness by offering optimal ICT services. Samsung SDS FIDO is built on Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) specifications which is the de facto standard for simpler and stronger authentication by using users’ biometrics information and PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) technology to store critical user information in mobile and server respectively. Users can scan their fingerprint, use facial recognition of other biometric authenticators such as voice detection to complete a payment or transaction in a secure and frictionless way. This can replace traditional authentication methods such as the entry of a user ID, password or transaction authentication number (TAN).
