Infinity Optics argues for biometric “privacy by default” and leverages award in promotional material

Infinity Optics is touting its technology as protecting “privacy by default” as the company promotes its recent recognition for biometrics innovations by Frost & Sullivan.

Infinity won the 2020 Global Biometric New Product Innovation Award from Frost & Sullivan for its QuantumCrypt “True Biometric Hash” technology, and recently published a white paper on how the technology protects user privacy.

Biometric technology provides a range of advantages in terms of low-friction user experience and biometrics, but the storage of sensitive data and the potential for abuse that this creates needs to be addressed, according a company announcement.

Storing a one-way hash instead, such as Infinity says its technology can reliably, stably and repeatably generate, removes this risk and enables revocation, the company claims.

“Infinity’s platform is one-of-kind, and unlike the rest of the biometric solutions available in the market that need to electronically store and add layers of encryption to end-users’ biometric data in templates, it eliminates this step fully, thereby making the solution highly secure for IoT-based applications and cost-effective,” according to Nandini Bhattacharya of Frost & Sullivan.
