EyeVerify lands new patent for spoof detection

April 18, 2013 - 

EyeVerify has announced that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its third patent.

This most recent patent covers EyeVerify’s technology for spoof detection for biometric authentication.

“We’ve seen tremendous interest from the market in our Eyeprint solution and our beta and pilot program,” CEO Toby Rush said. “One question that everyone asks is ‘how do you stop spoofing?’ Our newly patented spoof detection method ensures that the Eyeprint system cannot be fooled with a picture, video or other more sophisticated approaches.”

The company’s previous two patents covered the foundational concept of eye vein biometrics and the methods used for pattern matching in EyeVerify’s Eyeprint Verification System.

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, the latest updated results from a Biometric Standards, Performance and Assurance Laboratory test from Purdue University has found that EyeVerify’s technology showed a false accept rate of better than 1/50,000 or less than 0.002%, while keeping the false reject rate under 1%.

Starting in May, the company will be offering a beta program for mobile security participants. This program will provide access to the company’s patented technology that uses built-in cameras in smart devices to image identify and pattern match the veins in whites of users’ eyes. According to the company, this beta will include prototype applications, SDK access, technical and engineering support as well as quality assurance test plans and results.

Next week, on April 23, EyeVerify’s CEO Toby Rush will be speaking at Cartes America in Las Vegas, and will provide an overview of the latest accuracy improvements included in this month’s beta release of the Eyeprint Verification System.
