IDmission biometrics pass iBeta testing for Level 2 presentation attack detection standards
IDmission’s facial recognition technology has been declared Level 2 ISO/IEC 30107-3 Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) compliant by iBeta Quality Assurance, the company announced on Wednesday.
Conducted on the IDmission 188.8.131.52 passive liveness application, the solution was tested via on-device passive liveness detection on a mid-level smartphone.
After passing the test, IDmission says it is now one of only five global biometrics companies compliant with Level 2 ISO/IEC 30107-3 PAD standards while ensuring compatibility and interoperability. iBeta has issued Level 2 confirmation letters to nine vendors in total.
“Guaranteeing that a selfie being captured is from a live person, and not a photo of another picture or a mask or a video, is both technically challenging and mission-critical,” commented IDmission CEO Ashim Banerjee.
“To do so passively, with no user action required, is the icing on the cake,” he added.
The IDmission passive liveness solution utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) models to match face biometrics from a selfie to the photograph on an ID document.
With installations in over 160 countries, and applications across finance, e-commerce, and regulated industries, IDmission’s algorithms are constantly trained to improve efficiency and reduce bias.
The last few years have witnessed substantial improvements to biometric spoof attack detection, with FaceTec scoring a perfect Level-2 biometric PAD compliance test in February last year. More recently, Aware’s Knomi biometric facial recognition passed iBeta’s level 1 and 2 face biometric spoof attack detection testing with no errors. Acuant followed suit, achieving both levels earlier this month.
IDmission received iBeta’s level 1 confirmation letter in June and is now joining these companies’ highest standards for the fight against biometric spoof attacks.
“We are delighted to have pushed the frontiers of AI just a little bit, and to be able to offer state-of-the-art digital identity services to our customers,” Banerjee concluded.
