BioSSL partners with Ayonix to launch face recognition web security platform

September 21, 2015 - 

BioSSL announced that it has partnered with face recognition algorithm provider Ayonix to launch a facial recognition web security platform.

By adding Ayonix’s advanced 3D modelling technology to the BioSSL framework, the user’s one-time face biometric key can either replace their web password or act as an add-on for a two factor authentication process.

The data is encrypted to the server, ensuring that no data is locally stored and the data of the server remains useless to hackers.

“Face recognition does not replace the fingerprint or voice or iris. Every biometric technology has its pros and cons,” said Johann Caubergh, CEO of BioSSL ltd. “BioSSL’s top priority is to consult its customers to integrate different biometric solutions, separate or combined, but with the focus to remain omni-channel and protect the identity and provider fully against cybercrime, fraud or hacking.”

Ayonix’s algorithm has been approved as the second fastest in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 2014.

Registration and authentication are both conducted online through a standard web browser.

Additionally, the upcoming live recognition option will eliminate fake identities and significantly increase the security level.

BioSSL has posted an online demo on its website, which can be viewed after visitors register.

Previously reported, BioSSL partnered with the Danish smart card firm CardLab, in which it will integrate CardLabs’ new dual interface biometric bank card with fingerprint sensor into the BioSSL secure platform to create a complete and fully secure financial platform.
