Safran Identity & Security enhances convenience and security of its “Selfie-Check” mobile authentication solution.
Safran Identity & Security is offering a new version of its Selfie-Check SDK (Software Development Kit) to enhance the accuracy and security of biometric facial authentication for mobile devices, especially in regard to liveness detection.
Upgrading its face recognition solution to the highest level of security, Safran Identity & Security is enhancing its liveness detection feature. When taking a selfie for authentication, users will be asked randomly to turn their head to the right, the left or downwards – or even a combination of all of these. By requesting random head movements, the selfie-check ensures that the user is a real and a live person, through a user-friendly interface.
“Based on our extensive biometric experience and our strategy of constant improvement, we have been able to develop this next step in liveness detection techniques. The ability to recognize a living person considerably strengthens the security and reliability of a biometric system and reduces the risk of hacking and fraud,” explained Yves Portalier, Vice President & General Manager of the Telecom Business Unit, Safran Identity & Security.
Visitors can experience the biometric SDK for mobile phones with enhanced liveness detection at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (Hall 6 / Stand G 30).
