autonomous_ID partners with AKI to serve U.S. federal customers


U.S. federal contractor Akhiok-Kaguyak Inc. (AKI) and autonomous_ID have announced a partnership to provide the BIO_SOLE self-contained biometric credentialing system to U.S. federal customers for identity and access control automation.

“The continuing threats to military personnel and critical infrastructure and the growing national cybersecurity vulnerabilities demand a new breed of credentialing technology, and what our group has achieved is pivotal,” says autonomous_ID President Todd Gray. “Our product can identify a person within three steps with more than 99 percent accuracy. If I put on yours, it would know almost instantly that I’m not you.”

The Canada-based autonomous_ID’s BIO_SOLE takes the form of a footwear insert and an application which uses gait recognition technology to establish identity, and can also be used to monitor various health conditions, the company says.

“BIO_SOLE is suitable for the most sensitive controlled-access applications,” says AKI CEO Michael Bradshaw. “Its reliable and consistent performance eliminates security risks associated with lost swipe cards, compromised access codes and identity theft. We have seen tremendous advances in biometrics in a short time, and they will continue to evolve to a point we won’t even know they are there.”

DISA was recently reported to be working on gait recognition, among other biometrics, for identifying people in the field with mobile devices.
