Redrock Biometrics certified by iBeta for Level 1 presentation attack detection
Redrock Biometrics palmprint identification technology PalmID Login has completed Level 1 Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) conformance testing by iBeta Quality Assurance with a perfect score, according to a company announcement.
iBeta carries out biometric testing for conformance to the ISO 30107-3 PAD standard under NIST’s National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). The company’s high reputation has made it a primary destination for third party validation of biometric providers’ technology, Redrock says. Redrock is the first palmprint-based biometrics company to pass iBeta’s Level 1 PAD conformance testing.
FaceTec passed Level 2 PAD certification testing from iBeta with its facial recognition software earlier this year, which the company says makes it the first to pass both Level 1 and Level 2 testing with perfect scores.
Palm images captured by a high-resolution camera with an LED light or flash are analyzed by PalmID’s artificial intelligence, which detected all of approximately 720 presentation attacks carried out by iBeta over a 14-day period, with artifacts including simple prints and 3D casts.
“Biometrics is no longer constrained by dedicated scanners. Using existing cameras, biometric software now delivers high accuracy, low cost and fast deployment,” says Redrock Biometrics CEO Dr. Hua Yang. “However, anti-spoofing is hard to achieve without extra hardware. PalmID solution is a game changer: our anti-spoofing technique is accurate, quick, and passive, thus delivering a much better user experience.”
Redrock recently launched PalmID-X for biometric identification of people among databases of tens of thousand of people.
