The performance achieved by the combined solution paves the way for a variety of security applications that can benefit from the convenience of voice biometrics
NEW YORK, May 4, 2022 — ID R&D, a provider of top-performing voice and face biometrics and liveness technology, today announced that its IDVoice® Verified product ranked first among 23 submissions in both speaker verification and spoof detection accuracy in the SASV 2022 Challenge. This is the most recent of several strong performances by ID R&D in voice algorithm evaluations, with each serving to further establish ID R&D’s technical leadership in voice biometrics and liveness detection. The results further demonstrate the suitability of speaker verification for applications that demand both convenience and security, such as mobile authentication.
SASV stands for “spoofing-aware speaker verification”, and it is the first event to simultaneously evaluate biometric matching and spoof detection accuracy. It is conducted through a collaboration between global commercial entities and academic institutions with advanced programs in voice biometrics. The results demonstrate the ability of IDVoice Verified to perform accurate speaker verification while also providing reliable spoof detection. Both functions are critical for security applications, particularly in light of the advancement and proliferation of synthetic speech technologies. ID R&D also placed first in the Short-duration Speaker Verification Challenge (SdSVC), and earned strong results in the NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation.
“ID R&D was eager to participate in a challenge that recognizes the importance of biometric matching and liveness detection working in unison,” said Alexey Khitrov, CEO at ID R&D. “Our consistent performance in evaluations reflects the market leadership that our R&D investments have earned for our voice products, and we’re pleased to be seeing our efforts translate to more convenient security for so many users.”
ID R&D’s IDVoice Verified solution combines the voice verification biometric engine provided by IDVoice® with IDLive® Voice passive voice liveness detection to create a high-performance solution for strong authentication and fraud prevention. Before determining a voice match, IDVoice Verified first ensures that the voice sample is provided by a live person and not a recording or synthesized speech.
