BioID introduces new liveness detection feature


BioID has introduced a new liveness detection feature for its biometrics-as-a-service solution, BioID Web Service (BWS), that will detect photo, video and avatar attacks.

The new functionality secures the biometric authentication system against unauthorized access by detecting whether the person in front of the camera is a live person or a replay from another media or device. According to a company statement, BioID face liveness detection can be used on any device and platform and doesn’t need special equipment.

“With our new live detection, camera-based biometrics will be suitable for a much wider variety of use cases – especially where face or periocular recognition might be liable to forgery or identity fraud,” explained BioID CEO Ho Chang. “With the BioID Web Service now including strong liveness detection, we are happy to deliver face recognition as a vital and trusted authentication method for a variety of critical use cases.”

The cloud biometrics developer has made its anti-spoofing liveness detection solution available for integration and testing through its developer portal.

Last November, BioID partnered with Microsoft Cloud Germany and Deutsche Telekom to host its BWS service in the data center of T-Systems to further improve data security and privacy.
