Aware’s Knomi receives FIDO certification
Aware’s Knomi mobile biometric authentication framework has been certified as compliant with FIDO UAF 1.1 specifications giving banks, enterprises, and security solution providers a standards-based way to incorporate biometrics into their mobile apps.
“FIDO continues to gain adoption globally in part because of a dynamic marketplace of certified products from a variety of providers, with each having passed through a rigorous certification program that provides assurance that they are functional and interoperable,” said David Benini, VP, Marketing & Product at Aware. “Aware is pleased to offer some of the first authenticators available to be version 1.1 certified.”
Knomi includes SDKs that work in concert on a mobile device and server to enable password-free multifactor authentication using biometrics. Several biometric modality options are currently available, including face recognition, voice recognition, keystroke dynamics, and a fusion of voice and face recognition applied simultaneously. Aware’s biometric algorithms are complemented by multiple proprietary liveness detection techniques to prevent several different types of spoof attacks.
Knomi leverages Aware’s many years of experience enabling large-scale systems with biometric capture and matching algorithms. Components can be selected a la carte to implement either a FIDO Certified solution with secure biometric storage and matching on the mobile device, or a server-centric architecture, with centralized matching and template storage.
