BioID biometric PAD detection ISO standard compliance confirmed for Level A and B attacks
The tests by TÜViT used the FIDO Biometric Certification Requirements v1.1 (FIDO1.1) for the attack levels, and the lab requires the applied criteria to be stricter than FIDO1.1, according to the announcement. The PAD technology was put through 1000 tests with photos, masks and videos on different displays, as well as bona-fide tests with live individuals to audit correct live classification, passing both successfully.
BioID provides its biometric technology as a cloud service, and provides liveness detection based on two selfies, working on any standard RGB camera without any additional sensors.
The biometrics-as-a-service provider achieved FIDO biometric component certification in 2020, based on the ISO/IEC 19795 and 30107 standards, which involved testing against various photo media and other artifacts, 3D avatars and video projects. The BioID PAD technology used in IDCheck.io is among the first in the world to achieve this certification, the company says.
“As a pioneer for liveness detection since early 2000, BioID is proud of two different independent accreditations for our PAD technology,” says BioID CEO Ho Chang. “As we are working with multiple government suppliers, such objective third-party measurement is of great value. It complements the real-life approval from multiple years of efficient fraud prevention for our customers worldwide.”
The Germany-based BioID has more than 20 years of experience in the industry but now offers liveness detection, facial authentication and identity verification as a service, and claims a particular focus on anti-spoofing and built-in security by design.
The company is also representing the biometrics industry on the Technical Steering Committee of the Linux Foundation’s new cloud-native identity project.
