Single Lens Extended Depth-of-Field technology makes iris authentication more practical and convenient

In today’s iris image capture technology, the limitation of Depth-of-Field is the main problem for traditional iris recognition systems. Reducing the aperture can increase the DOF, but the light gathering capability and resolution will decrease. Due to eye safety, increasing the light or illumination source is not encouraged as the source may damage the human eye.

PayPal executive discusses future of identification technologies

In a presentation titled “Kill all Passwords”, PayPal’s head of developer evangelism, Jonathan Leblanc, discusses cutting-edge technologies in development to authorize transactions and other sensitive online interactions, according to a blog post by The Wall Street Journal. Leblanc’s presentation, which he is delivering at various tech conferences, argues that identification verification technology has shifted toward “true integration with the human body.” The use of injectable and ingestible devices, such as brain implants and attachable computers, will allow “natural body identification”

Dutch government considering collecting biometrics for ID documents

The Netherlands government may make it mandatory for all citizens to submit their fingerprint data to be stored in a database when applying for a passport, based on a European Court of Justice ruling this week, according to a report by the Netherland Times.
