“Knomi D is the version of the solution aimed at on-device biometric matching, meaning there is no need for the user’s biometrics to be compared to a template stored on a remote server.”
Aware has updated its Knomi D biometric authentication solution, announcing version 2.7.3 of the product.
Relying primarily on facial recognition, the Knomi solution is designed to allow end users to confirm their identity with a selfie. Knomi D is the version of the solution aimed at on-device biometric matching, meaning there is no need for the user’s biometrics to be compared to a template stored on a remote server.
In a statement announcing the new version of Knomi D, Aware said it “completely enhances” the solution’s mobile authentication framework.
“We place a strategic emphasis on offering our customers a flexible approach to their facial recognition and authentication needs,” said Aware’s Chief Commercial Officer, Rob Mungovan. “This upgrade furthers the Knomi line so that regardless of the implementation a customer chooses—server-centric, browser-based or on-device—they have the ability to balance passwordless security with convenient usability.”
Aware first launched Knomi in late 2017. The following year, the platform attained FIDO certification, complying with the authentication standards body’s UAF 1.1 specification. FIDO focuses on on-device authentication, so the certification was an important development for Knomi D in particular.
Knomi S, meanwhile, is the version of Knomi that enables authentication against a template stored remotely. That solution supports both selfie authentication and voice recognition.
