Article 16 : VisionPass: 100% de réussite pour le dispositif de reconnaissance faciale d'IDEMIA

IDEMIA has just announced that its facial recognition device has successfully passed the tests of the independent institute iBeta PAD. Indeed, VisionPass obtained a score of 100% in the level 1 and 2 attacks prevention tests and becomes the first terminal in the world to record such a level of performance.

The importance of an independent test

Such success is crucial from a marketing point of you. Indeed, because it is difficult for the customer to trust the product without having testing result from an external and neutral source. This is even more true when it comes to a tool as important from a security point of view as a facial recognition device.

Testing from the iBeta lab allows consumers to trust the product without having to conduct resource and time consuming tests themselves.

VisionPass resists fraud

For the company, the main objective of such a test is to prove that its facial recognition device is resistant to the most common frauds in this area of ​​security. It is therefore a matter of proving that the device cannot be fooled by wearing a mask, even if it has been 3D printed to represent the face of an authenticated user, or by the presentation of a user’s picture, printed on a piece of paper or directly from the screen of a smartphone for example.

IDEMIA confirms its leadership position in digital security

By presenting on the market the first device to achieve a perfect score in the level 1 and 2 tests of the iBeta laboratory, the company confirms its position of strength in the digital security market. Such results prove the firm’s mastery in the fields of biometric algorithms, cryptography and on-board security.

Article 15 : Certification VISA et MASTERCARD pour les cartes de paiement biométriques F.CODE

Mastercard and Visa said they have entered into new agreements to develop biometric authentication. New partnerships could allow them to take advantage of this new trend.

IDEMIA’s F-CODE biometric cards

This technology is transforming the way people identify people. Biometrics enhance the security of your data and facilitate the use of your credit card by analysing your fingerprint.

As security is an issue in purchasing, Idemia designs F-CODE biometric payment cards. You carry out your transactions using the fingerprint sensor integrated into the card. Your fingerprint is then validated by an algorithm that validates the match of the fingerprint to that of the owner.

New agreements with Visa and Mastercard

In this context, this technology has recently entered into a partnership with Visa and Mastercard. The biometric device fits perfectly into these cards and allows you to pay easily and securely.

To do this, a chip is integrated into the card and enables the verification procedure.

This initiative will help develop biometric payment services around the world.

News that appeal to consumers

A study shows that consumers are ready to welcome biometric payment: 76% are interested in contactless for large payments and 81% are ready to use their fingerprint.

Indeed, it speeds up payment, lifts the limit of 30 euros for contactless payment, offers ease of use and secures data.

To ensure user privacy, biometric data is stored into the chip and never leaves the chip. This new generation of cards is already available, regardless of your bank.

Article 14 : IDEMIA, partenaire de l'Etat Français pour les nouvelles cartes d'identité biométrique

The French State has announced the renewal of the national identity card by integrating a biometric chip useful for online identification, and designed by a French company at the cutting edge of technology. Back to this important announcement.

An improvement in the service of the security of everyone’s identity

It is a sulphurous and divisive subject at first glance, which hardly leaves anyone indifferent in France lately: the new French identity cards will be equipped with a biometric chip. Thus, these new generation national identity cards can be easily read by a smartphone or any device equipped with an application specially designed for this purpose in order to automatically and digitally certify the identity of its owner.

It will be possible, for example, to verify with certainty the identity of the holder of one of these new cards when carrying out certain procedures: request to French administrations, online purchases and why not, if one imagine the possible developments based on this improvement in identity checks, voting online as is already done in other countries. The applications are limitless and this should improve everyone’s cybersecurity and prevent some identity theft.

A controversial technology whose security is essential

Faced with these obvious improvements, some object to the still plausible possibility of having their identity card stolen, or even quite simply a hacking of the identification system which could, on the contrary, greatly facilitate identity theft for criminals. of a victim. At a minimum, this identification system must be extremely secure.

A French innovation by IDEMIA

We particularly draw our reader’s attention to one detail: this biometric identification technology is not the result of an acquisition from some technologically superior foreign country, but a national innovation. It is more precisely due to the company IDEMIA, the world leader in augmented identity. 

At Biotime, it seems important to us to relay this information because IDEMIA is an innovative company, the flagship of French technology and now recognized by the State itself.

Article 13 : L'aéroport international d'Oakland va se doter d'une technologie de reconnaissance faciale biométrique

On October 4, IDEMIA, the world leader in biometric and augmented identity solutions, announced its partnership with an international airport in the United States. Indeed, Oakland International Airport in California has chosen to equip itself with a new technology to verify the identity of international travellers. People departing from Terminal 1 will thus be able to use this new identification system called MFACE.

What is MFACE technology?

This technology is a revolutionary system since it makes it possible to recognize the continuous flow of travellers in real time in a defined space. Oakland airport passengers will thus benefit from speed and simplicity when validating their passages. This identification system can be deployed as a stand-alone device, on a counter or even be integrated into an already existing system.

A more efficient airport thanks to MFACE technology?

The director of aviation at the Oakland Port Authority, Bryant L. Francis, says the technology will provide passengers with speed when moving from one boarding gate to another. He also adds that adding this technology to the airport will allow travellers a smoother and more secure boarding experience. For its part, the giant in biometric solutions and augmented identification insists that no personal information is stored. It indicates that the customs service of border protection carries out the biometric verification via the cloud.

Biometric readers more and more present in American airports?

Biometrics are increasingly present in the United States and airports no longer hesitate to equip themselves with this technology to facilitate movement and make their spaces more fluid. A few months ago, Newark Liberty International Airport announced (in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey) the launch of a self-service e-gate system. It allows travellers to perform a biometric scan and thus confirm their boarding. Los Angeles International Airport has also used this technology to screen air passengers and thus enhance their security.

Article 12 : Nouveauté : prise en compte des QR Code pour l'identification des visiteurs sur les deux lecteurs biométriques sans contact MorphoWave & VisionPass

As a professional, you must not stay on the sidelines of new tools intended to make your business more efficient. Today, biometric readers are at the heart of the surveillance systems of all companies. Check out the two IDEMIA models with new functionality below.
