iProov passes Level B biometric presentation attack detection test by NPL


iProov has passed an ISO/IEC 30107-3 conformance review to Level B of the NIST standards for presentation attack detection (PAD), or genuine presence assurance, in a review by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

In the NIST SOFA spoof attack frameworks, A is the simplest level of attack, and C the most aggressive, sophisticated, and expensive, according to the announcement. NPL and iProov adopted statistical performance measures based on real-world data sets.

NPL is the UK’s national standards laboratory, and the closest equivalent of NIST. The lab says it has reviewed iProov’s data sets and custom testing protocol, and the company says its methodologies conform with ISO/IEC 19795-1:2006 standards for testing the performance of biometric verification, as well as ISO/IEC 30107-3:2017 for PAD testing.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security also tested iProov’s technology against more than 600 attacks in 2017 without a single successful attempt, the company says in the announcement, before DHS awarded it a contract in April, 2018.

“The long-standing, internationally-recognised expertise of the NIST and NPL in this field is unrivalled,” says iProov Founder and CEO Andrew Bud. “We are delighted to have passed NPL’s review to achieve this level of conformance, which provides objective endorsement of our technology’s performance and its compliance with ISO/IEC 30107-3.”

iProov announced its part in a multi-year contract from the UK Home Office to provide facial recognition technology for smartphone-based identity verification in November.

FaceTec recently announced its facial recognition technology has passed Level-2 PAD testing to the ISO 30107 standard.
