Aware mobile biometrics with liveness detection verifies parolees in Arkansas
Mobile biometric authentication with face and voice liveness detection from Aware has been used to authenticate the identity of offenders in the criminal justice system of Arkansas by Marquis Software.
Marquis’ solution has been used to authenticate more than 10,000 offender identities, according to a company announcement, a use case demanding multi-factor authentication for maximum security. People on parole or probation in Arkansas can use Marquis software with Knomi’s multifactor authentication and mobile biometrics to perform check-ins with officers as mandated for their cases. Smartphone location and time data is combined with face and voice biometrics to confirm their location in an irrefutable way, Aware states.
“We are delighted to be using Aware’s solution within our eOMIS offering,” says Ben Harrell, director of sales and marketing at Marquis Software. “In our InTouch mobile application, we must have the highest possible security to ensure that the person checking in as the offender is, in fact, the offender. The ability for Knomi to give us separate scores for face and voice recognition, and a fused score combining the two, gives us that peace of mind. Additionally, COVID-19 has limited the capability for in-person transactions, but Knomi has enabled us to transition from a previously required in-person enrollment, and transform to a trusted, non-proctored mobile enrollment capability.”
Harrell also says Marquis was impressed by Knomi’s ease of implementation, with only a couple of weeks separating the purchase decision and operational deployment.
Aware has also announced that Knomi 2.11 has enhanced voice authentication and speaker recognition capabilities for improved dual-authentication performance. The new version eliminates friction when detecting liveness for face or voice, according to the company.
Voice recognition and passive facial liveness were integrated with Knomi 2.6 earlier this year.
