USPTO grants Zighra patent for continuous behavioral biometrics to enable passwordless authentication
Zighra has been awarded a U.S. patent for continuous behavioral biometrics to enable passwordless authentication through its AI-at-the-edge platform for digital identity signatures, the company announced.
Titled “System and method for behavioral biometric authentication using program modeling,” the patent adds observable programmatic behavior features to the AI-engine. It leverages sensors including cameras, touchscreens, accelerometers and gyroscopes to obtain behavioral modeling and biometric intelligence for user authentication. The main authentication system leverages a passwordless procedure.
“We now live and work in an increasingly sensor-based world driven by smartphones, wearables, IoT devices and connected vehicles. Identity and authentication must be continuously valid, verified, frictionless and implicit to protect against attacks,” said in a statement Deepak Dutt, CEO of Zighra. “With our behavioral biometrics platform, the ways in which users, applications and devices interact with each other becomes the new password. Combining these with other N-dimensional elements in Zighra’s platform the user’s identity profile is unassailably specific.”
Zighra’s proprietary and FIDO-certified AI-platform provides adaptive behavioral intelligence and powerful security controls with seamless user experience.
“The fundamental flaw with traditional behavioral biometrics is that it must centrally store private information. As we have seen time and again, this centralized information is at significant risk of compromise, either by accident or criminal intent. Zighra’s architecture eliminates this risk. Identity is entirely determined on the device, no data leaves the device protecting user privacy,” Dutt added.
