    Presentation attack detection: Dissolving the myth of easy-to-fake face recognition One of the most common assumptions concerning face recognition is that it can easily be faked with one’s photo – which, in times of Facebook and Instagram, is publicly available to anyone. Further, if a facial recognition software cannot be cheated this way, then surely with a video or a 3D avatar. This idea is deeply rooted in most peoples’ heads, naturally making biometric authentication seem insecure to them. This article will work on dissolving the myth of easy-to-fake face recognition by elaborating on a significant innovation called liveness detection. Scientifically, this is called presentation attack detection (PAD). E.g. it describes the ability of a facial recognition technology to prevent …[read more]

Face Recognition Software from Germany

Anonymous face recognition

BioID keeps biometric data pseudonymized with no other personally identifying information (PII) stored. Instead, BioID generates a biometric template as a mathematical representation of the user’s unique features. It cannot be exported, re-engineered or reverse-engineered to its original format. Strict separation of biometrics & personal information generates our strong privacy protection.

Security by Design

For being compliant with EU General Data Protection Law (GDPR), we build our software completely in-house and offer it as a service via European data centres. We also support on-premises installations for companies with special requirements. 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 liveness detection is a powerful anti-spoofing mechanism and prevents data and accounts from being stolen or misused. 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. This device independent presentation attack detection surely makes the difference in any authentication application.
