Face Recognition Software from Germany

Anonymous face recognition

When carrying out its service, BioID® keeps biometric data anonymous with no personally identifying information stored. Instead, BioID® generates a biometric template as a mathematical representation of the user’s unique features, which cannot be exported, re-engineered or reverse-engineered to its original format. This allows for the highest levels of privacy protection through full anonymity.

Security by Design

For being compliant with EU Data Protection Law, we build our software completely in-house and offer it as a service via both public and private clouds with customer-specific data centres. In particular, BioID® offers an additional service with German cloud provider T-Systems, storing any data safely in Germany. This makes BioID®’s face-, eye and voice recognition particularly suitable for industries and applications dealing with highly sensitive data.

Patents in Liveness Detection

BioID®’s breakthrough liveness detection is a powerful anti-spoofing mechanism and prevents any data from being stolen by impostors or misused through forgery. Thus, BioID®’s “Privacy by Design” principle considers not only the system’s anonymous data handling and the cloud’s security requirements but also ensures safety against attacks.
