Australian-based biometric technology startup Wavefront Biometric Technologies Pty Ltd has filed a provisional patent application over newly identified intellectual property generated during the Phase 2 development program.
Previously reported, Nemex Resources increased its interest in Wavefront to 40%, with the option to increase it to 51%.
The patent application entitled “Multi-Biometric Authentication” is an extension of Wavefront’s “Corneal Authentication” patent.
According to the patent application, the multi-biometric authentication system combines the features of the cornea with key features of the iris using a single sensor to capture multiple components of the eye.
The system is entirely unique in that it captures the identifying features of the eye while ensuring that eye is from a real human, serving as a built-in “Liveness Test”.
