Gartner predicts smartphone AI to replace passwords with behavioral biometrics

Aritificial Intelligence features will become a critical differentiator for smartphone vendors over the next two years, and will soon enable on-device behavioral biometrics to replace many passwords and active authentications, according to the latest report from Gartner. The report “Market Insight: 10 Use Cases for AI-Powered Smartphones to Generate New Business Opportunities” says that 80 percent of smartphones shipped by 2022 will have on-device AI capabilities, increasing from 10 percent in 2017. Gartner predicts usability and self-service capabilities will be

TypingDNA launches authentication solution based on short text samples

TypingDNA has developed technology capable of identifying individuals by how they type short, repetitive text samples, enabling key-stroke biometrics to be added as a secondary form of authentication for account logins and passwords, the company has announced. The new TypingDNA product can authenticate users the second time they enter a certain text string, according to the announcement, and works on both desktop and mobile devices. The company’s authentication solutions are compliant with authentication regulations, and the strength of typing biometrics

Crossmatch adds BehavioSec behavioural biometrics to DigitalPersona enterprise security application

Crossmatch has partnered with BehavioSec to integrate behavioural biometrics into its DigitalPersona 2.3 composite authentication solution, the companies announced Monday. BehavioSec’s keyboard capture product is incorporated as an extra authentication layer in DigitalPersona 2.3, in addition to the one-time passwords, PIN, contact or contactless cards and fingerprints which were already available as authentication factors for customizable solutions based on the organization’s preference. “We selected BehavioSec’s platform because they are singularly focused on behavioral biometrics and have well-established and proven technology

Yamaha demonstrates MOTORiD with facial and gesture recognition

Yamaha has introduced a new artificial intelligence-powered system for motorcycles enabling facial and gesture recognition, dubbed MOTORiD. The feature allows the bike to be turned on and off with a gesture, and is designed to provide the feeling of Kando, which translates roughly as a strong feeling of excitement and satisfaction caused by experiencing a thing of very high quality, though customers in the western hemisphere may be reminded of Knight Rider. “MOTOROiD’s development concept was an ‘Unleashed Prototype,’ and

Zighra patents technology for user-device behavioral models

Zighra has received its latest patent with the U.S. patent office, enabling the company to develop highly personalized user-device models to safeguard against account hijacking, social engineering, and automated bot attacks negatively impacting the connected economy. The patent expands on the behavioral intelligence layer of Zighra’s foundational patent on N-dimensional authentication. It covers Zighra’s newly-created proprietary lightweight machine learning algorithms that can operate locally on a device. By using device sensors including touchscreens, accelerometers and gyroscopes, Zighra’s machine learning technology

ID R&D develops text-independent multimodal biometrics chatbot solution

ID R&D has launched SafeChat, a text-independent artificial intelligence (AI) that combines keystroke dynamics, behavioral and voice biometrics to facilitate continuous, frictionless authentication for chatbots and virtual assistants. SafeChat continually authenticates the user through their voice interactions, typing mannerisms and behaviors, and facial recognition. The solution’s high-level security features do not require much participation from the end-user. ID R&D’s text-independent chatbot solution is designed to help enterprises communicate with end-users in a secure and convenient way. SafeChat incorporates behavioral, voice and

Clarkson University students develop keystroke authentication methods, datasets

Three Clarkson University ECE undergraduate researchers — Christopher Murphy, Timothy Law, and Adam Sherwin — have developed methods and datasets for keystrokes authentication, which they have detailed in two research papers. The research papers, which the students co-authored, have both been peer reviewed and accepted by two renowned international conferences. The first paper, “Shared Dataset on Natural Human-Computer Interaction to Support Continuous Authentication Research,” by Christopher Murphy, Jiaju Huang (CU PhD student), Daqing Hou, and Stephanie Schuckers, has been presented

Zighra unveils authentication and threat detection solution

Zighra has launched SensifyID, a patented solution that delivers a 360-degree view of user interactions and continuous proof of identity while preserving the privacy and security of the end consumer. According to the company, this is the first patented solution to run advanced machine learning and behavioral authentication algorithms entirely on-device. The SensifyID platform gathers device, behavioral, and environmental intelligence proactively to build high fidelity, on-device behavioral models that enable continuous proof of presence and analytics to authenticate a user’s

BioCatch VP touts behavioral biometrics as wave of the future

Behavioral biometrics is a breakthrough cybersecurity technology that identifies people by how they do what they do, rather than by their physical characteristics, what they know, or by the authentication technology they possess. Behavioral biometrics is defined as the measurement and analysis of human activity patterns. Historically, these have included keystroke patterns, gait, and handwritten signatures. However, today’s advanced behavioral biometric techniques now capture a wider array of human interactions between a device and an application, such as hand-eye coordination,
