Mobile Device Biometrics: The Eyes Have It
December 10, 2012
With so much of our banking and interactions taking place on our mobile phones, we still live with a false sense of security because it doesn’t take much for someone to hack our phones. By using more unique identifiers — biometrics such as eyes, rather than passwords — corporations and banks may have a more secure way to authenticate our identity.
EyeVerify makes biometric technology which uses eye vein patterns. CEO Toby Rush says “no one can pretend to be you with an eye print. Most eye verification technologies lack ‘liveness’ detection. With EyeVerify, you can’t fake it with photos or videos. You have to stand in front of your camera on any smartphone.”
EyeVerify implements a vein biometrics system that only requires software and the device’s camera. It allows mobile users to authorize transactions and access secure information. Using the camera on the phone, the software can determine 4 ROIs (regions of interest) in your eye, sending a pass/fail and a confidence interval. If it passes, you are granted access to the application. If it fails, access is denied.
