Bringing biometrics to the door and across the enterprise

  • Author:HFSecurity
  • Release on :2019-04-26

Biometrics fuse convenience and security while validating“true identity” versus identity that is associated with possessing an ID card(or mobile credential on a smartphone), and offers numerous benefits accesscontrol and other enterprise applications. With the emergence of newanti-spoofing capabilities and its integration into secure platforms thatprotect privacy and support numerous credential technologies, biometricauthentication is poised to deliver a much higher matching speed and betteroverall performance along with improved security and user convenience.

Development of the latest solutions has focused on thefollowing key areas:

Improving image capture: Many customers choose sensors thatuse multispectral imaging because it optimizes the quality of the capturedimage illuminates the skin at different depths to collect information frominside the finger to augment available surface fingerprint data. Additionally,the multispectral sensors work for the broadest range of people with normal,wet, dry or damaged fingers, across the widest range conditions (from lotionsor grease to sunlight, wet, cold conditions).

Liveness detection to enhance trust: An increasingly visibledimension of biometric performance in commercial applications, livenessdetection is the ability to determine that the biometric data captured by thefingerprint reader is from a real, living person rather than a plastic fake orother artificial copy. This is critical if biometrics are to eliminate the needto use PINs or passwords. It also protect privacy – if you can’t use a fakefinger, then even if you did obtain someone’s fingerprint data, it ismeaningless.

Optimizing performance: The top-performing solutions captureusable biometric data on the first attempt for every user and speed theliveness detection process. They quickly perform template matching to rejectimpostors and match legitimate users, and should be tested by skilled andindependent third parties for interoperability so that performance is based ondata that can be trusted in all template-matching modes.

Incorporating biometrics into access control systems requiresa secure trust platform designed to meet the concerns of accessibility and dataprotection in a connected environment. The platform should leverage credentialtechnology that employs encryption and a software-based infrastructure tosecure identities on any form factor for trusted access to doors, IT networksand beyond. This system also should encompass remote management of all readersand users, spanning all onboarding as well as template loading and enrollmentactivities for supported authentication modes.

Tools should be available to allow system administrators tomanage all configuration settings from time and data to language, security andsynchronization. Additionally, the system should enable continuous livemonitoring of authentication, alerts and system health. To simplify deployment,application programming interfaces (APIs) should be available for directintegration of biometrics authentication solutions with the access controlinfrastructure.

Today’s fingerprint authentication solutions are on a fasttrack to deliver a unique combination of ease of use and higher security toaccess control systems. With their latest enhancements in liveness detection,system architectures and performance, they seamlessly combine security andconvenience to make them a viable option for secure access to facilities,networks and services.
