FacePhi face recognition solution achieves FIDO certification

April 6, 2017 - 

Facephi announced that its Facephi face recognition solution has achieved FIDO certification by passing FIDO UAF interoperability testing for its UAF Authenticator implementation last month.

Facephi Biometría develops and markets facial recognition software with a focus on mobile devices, using its own algorithms.

Earning FIDO certification ensures that FacePhi complies with the FIDO standards and the improvement of the security and privacy of the authentication process.

The certification also improves the usability of authentication, eliminates the use of passwords (passwordless experience), provides an easy and fast process (transparent for the users), and requires only a mobile or tablet device, as well as ensures protection against phishing, man-in-the-middle or replay attacks.

In addition, keys and biometric patterns are always stored on the device itself and all without the use of any third-party software.

FIDO certification is a program that ensures the interoperability between products and services from different companies that support FIDO specifications.

Certified companies are able to display FIDO’s certified logotype to prove to users, clients and partners that they created an interoperable and quality FIDO implementation, as well as that they are able to work with any other FIDO implementations.

As the most important set of standards related with authentication processes, FIDO allows companies to easily and securely incorporate biometric software in a range of online services and processes.

Previously reported, Banco Inbursa deployed FacePhi‘s “Selphi” solution to become the first financial institution in Mexico to use facial biometrics for mobile banking authentication.
