IDLive® Face

Facial Liveness Detection - Passive, Single-Image, and Proven Unbiased

Prevent spoofing attacks with the world’s first single image, passive facial liveness detection product and the only one that is tested to be ISO 30107-3 compliant and to be unbiased. IDLive Face needs only the same selfie image used for face matching, improving security while adding zero friction to authentication and digital onboarding processes. It is used to process millions of monthly transactions for customers worldwide.

IDLive® Doc

Document Liveness Detection

IDLive Doc helps ensure that a document presented during mobile onboarding is live, present, and in the possession of its owner at the time of capture, preventing bad actors from presenting an image of a document displayed on a screen. Without effective countermeasures to document-based spoofing, fraudsters pose the risk of conducting scalable attacks using images of IDs easily obtained from illicit sources.

IDVoice™

The Next Generation of Voice Biometrics Software

ID R&D delivers superior speaker verification accuracy in a variety of environments. ID R&D’s latest embedded algorithms achieve 0.01% False Accept Rate with a False Reject Rate less than 5%. In other words, it’s as secure as a PIN with convenience that is far superior. Built on the latest AI advancements and algorithms, IDVoice integrates with contact centers, mobile and web apps, standalone devices, messaging platforms, chatbots, and chips. ID R&D also provides the world’s highest-rated voice liveness product for anti-spoofing.

The Biometric Authentication Opportunity

It’s harder than ever for businesses to protect themselves and their customers against fraud and data breaches.
Traditional authentication methods like passwords and knowledge-based authentication (KBA), are not only frustrating; they are vulnerable to hacking.

Forgotten credentials, locked accounts, and time-consuming reset processes annoy users who, on average, have more than 20 passwords to keep track of. This often leads to bad password hygiene. A PYMNTS study found that approximately 59 percent of consumers use the same password across multiple accounts, allowing cybercriminals to do even more harm once a password is exposed.

According to the FIDO Alliance, passwords are the root cause of 80% of data breaches. As more and more stories of cyber attacks and sophisticated social engineering attacks surface, businesses seek stronger authentication processes and technologies.

Unfortunately, “strong security” often results in complexity in the form of frequent password changes, extra authentication steps and security challenge questions. And worse, some of these approaches continue to put users and companies at risk. For instance, the FBI recently sent a security advisory warning of attacks that bypass multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions.

Biometrics offer the ability to strengthen security and improve the user experience.

IT research firm Gartner predicts that by 2022, 60% of large businesses and almost all medium-sized companies will have cut their dependence on passwords by half. Many are turning to biometric authentication.

Backed by deep expertise and an extreme focus on R&D, ID R&D develops best-in-class voice biometric and passive voice and facial liveness detection software. These technologies facilitate stronger security, simplified personalization, improved fraud prevention, and a better user experience.

ID R&D Biometrics and Liveness Detection Technology

Our flexible SDKs enable businesses to quickly take advantage of award-winning technology and unique functionality for identity verification, authentication and liveness detection across online, mobile, traditional voice, physical access, and IoT devices.

ID R&D is focused on delivering innovative capabilities in the following areas:

Voice Biometrics: Compares the characteristics of a person’s voice with a stored voice template or “voiceprint” to determine a match.

Multi-modal Biometrics: Combines voice and face biometrics, as well as voice and facial liveness detection for a layered authentication solution that is ideal for mobile application login.

Passive Voice and Facial Liveness Detection: Whereas biometric authentication verifies a user is a match with the authorized user, liveness detection identifies presentation attacks including the use of photos, masks, video, recorded voice, computer-generated voice and more to impersonate an authorized user.

ID R&D core Biometric Software SDKs include:

  • The #1 rated voice verification product based on industry challenge results
  • The #1 rated voice anti-spoofing (liveness) technology based on ASVspoof.org challenge results
  • The first-ever passive facial liveness detection software to achieve iBeta Level 1 and Level 2 Presentation Attack Compliance (PAD), in accordance with ISO 30107-3
