Aware introduces Knomi mobile biometric framework

October 19, 2017 - 

Aware announced the launch of its Knomi mobile biometric authentication framework on Thursday. Knomi consists of SDKs that work together on a mobile device and server to replace passwords with multifactor authentication.

Modalities currently available with Knomi include face recognition, voice recognition, and a simultaneous combination of face and keystroke dynamic recognition. Voice recognition was also recently added to Aware’s Nexa search and match SDKs.

Knomi provides high accuracy and speed performance with Aware’s algorithms, and prevents several types of spoof attacks with proprietary liveness detection techniques using passive and interactive elements.

“Knomi enables an extraordinary degree of flexibility for CISOs and users alike, with a variety of biometric modalities and architectures supported,” commented David Benini, VP of Marketing & Product at Aware. “With its rigorous liveness detection mechanisms and innovative fusion of multiple factors, Knomi makes password-free authentication possible from just about any device or network without sacrificing security for convenience.”

Customers can select individual Knomi components for matching and storing templates on a server, or on-device as a FIDO Certified solution. User interfaces providing a positive user experience with fast and easy biometric capture and liveness detection are included with each SDK.

Aware will demonstrate Knomi from the FIDO Alliance pavilion at Money 2020 next week in Las Vegas.

As previously reported, the company also launched its Indigo line of cloud-based search solutions in April.
