Biometrics Made In Germany – Trusted Worldwide

BioID’s patented presentation attack detection enables KYC identity verification for customers worldwide. Originally a Fraunhofer IIS spin-off in 1998, BioID now leverages more than 20 years of experience in biometrics. BioID’s software-based authentication and anti-spoofing technology enable a seamless user experience, requiring two selfies only. Any standard 2D camera can be used to determine the legitimate user’s presence in real time. BioID’s authentication service is GDPR compliant and ensures privacy by design. Privately held with R&D based in Germany, BioID has offices in Switzerland and the US. Its technology has been proven through many years of use at enterprises, banks and government organizations.

Liveness Detection – Trusted with Compliance

BioID is the industry pioneer in the development of facial liveness detection since early 2000. BioID’s Liveness Detection is compliant with ISO/IEC 30107 as confirmed by two independent FIDO accredited biometric laboratories:

• Liveness Detection was successfully tested by TÜV Informationstechnik GmbH (TÜViT) in Germany against criteria based on FIDO Biometric Certification Requirements v1.1 and ISO/IEC 30107-3:2017. The applied criteria are considered by TÜViT to be stricter than FIDO1.1 and ISO/IEC 30107-3.

• A FIDO biometric component certification was achieved through a BioID’s partner solution in France. The certified KYC identity verification product relies on BioID Liveness Detection for fraud prevention. During the FIDO certification process in 2020, BioID PAD performance was successfully tested by the accredited laboratories ELITT/Leti according to the standards ISO 19795 and ISO/IEC 30107.

The BioID Web Service – First in Biometrics as a Service

BioID offers their authentication service via APIs including the following:

• Liveness Detection – “Are you really there?”: Patented anti-spoofing fake detection against photo and video replays for preventing identity fraud, e. g. for legally binding actions or financial transactions

• PhotoVerify – “Are you the one on the ID?”: Automated verification of ID ownership through high-quality comparison of ID and person, e. g. for identity proofing when opening a bank account

• Enroll – “How can I recognize you?” Registration and training of face & periocular traits for the following authentication processes

• Verify – “Are you who you say you are?”: One-to-one matching for biometric authentication for online login, work-at-home access, transaction authorization, etc., including our biometric service liveness detection.
