The U.S. defense department is developing a prototype within the next year that aims to authenticate the identity of mobile users through their life patterns, such as how fast they walk to their office or the locations they regularly visit, according to a report by AFCEA. The pilot project is designed to authenticate military personnel who may not otherwise have the time to routinely submit fingerprints, facial recognition scans or other forms of traditional biometrics.

South Korean government-run Korea Internet & Security Agency is developing biometric authentication for mobile banking with plans to commercialize the technology by late 2018, according to a report by The Korean Herald. “We are developing an algorithm for authenticating mobile banking with a combination of a fingerprint, heart rate and (an) electrocardiogram,” said Jason Kim, chief of KISA’s security technology dissemination team. “The technology is expected to be much safer than existing biometrics including iris sensors, fingerprint scanners and facial
Biometric technology firm ID R&D launched a mobile biometric login solution earlier this week at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC 2017, marking the company’s first product. The patent-pending IDSquared combines a simple and intuitive user interface with behavioural biometrics, facial recognition and liveness detection. Designed to provide a seamless UX and improved mobile authentication experience, IDSquared requires users to type a word into the mobile device while looking at the screen. By doing so, uses reveal their face to the front-facing camera
Integrated Biometrics announced the FIVE-0 compact scanner, which the company claims is the first FBI-certified, AFIS compatible 10-finger scanner. According to a company statement, the compact FAP501 units are “extremely rugged and deliver high quality scans under conditions that limit other technologies, such as latent fingerprints, dirt, heat, cold, bright lights, and direct sunlight.” The mobile 10-finger enrollment and verification device is used by global law enforcement, military, intelligence, border control, and social service agencies. In addition, FIVE-0 supports national
NEC Corporation has launched NC7000-3A, a data utilization platform software that leverages facial recognition to confirm the identity of mobile service users for organizations such as financial institutions and telecommunication operators. NC7000-3A is ideal for organizations that require ID management and authentication functions to ensure the safety and security of their mobile web services.
