IDAction™ Behavioral Biometrics

Continuous authentication for mobile and web users

Verify throughout the journey, not just at login

Voice and face biometric technologies rely on physiological characteristics. In contrast, behavioral biometrics use human activity patterns. Like the physical, behavioral patterns are consistently unique, offering a reliable and frictionless mode of authentication.

ID R&D’s behavioral biometrics product, IDAction, can be used alone or with voice authentication and facial recognition to strengthen security, and to provide passive, continuous verification of a user throughout their journey.

How behavioral biometrics work

IDAction works with widely used devices, including smartphones, laptops, PCs, and tablets — drawing on machine learning and AI to detect human activity patterns such as the manner and rhythm in which keystrokes are made. Raw keystroke measurements are captured and synchronized with other sensor data to create a unique biometric template for future authentication. This happens transparently in the background throgh a users normal interactions with your mobile or web app.

IDAction was the top-performing technology in the 2017 Keystroke Biometrics Ongoing Competition (KBOC).

Getting started with IDAction

IDAction is delivered as an SDK on multiple platforms including iOS, Android, Linux, and Windows, and as a Docker image. Our SDKs can be combined to deliver even more powerful capabilities.
IDAction is part of our SafeChat solution, which provides five layers of biometric security for chatbots and virtual assistants. Additionally, IDSquared combines keystroke dynamics and facial recognition to enhance a standard login/password process with multi-factor authentication.
