In an effort to increase the accuracy and security of its biometric facial authentication solution for mobile devices, Safran Identity & Security has upgraded its Selfie-Check SDK with enhanced liveness detection.
Now when users take a selfie for authentication, they will be asked randomly to turn their head to the right, the left or downwards, or a combination of all of these to determine that the user is a real and a live person. 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.
Safran’s new biometric SDK for mobile phones with enhanced liveness detection will be on display at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week along with: face, fingerprint and iris SDKs to enable registration, identification and authentication on mobile devices; match on card solutions with fingerprint and facial biometrics; secure embedded solutions for cellular and non-cellular networks including eSIM, eSE and remote SIM provisioning, and; strong digital identity solutions, including Mobile Connect, for banks and telecom operators.
