    IDLive Face: A New Generation of Liveness Detection for Face Recognition

    The benefit of liveness detection is improved security and fraud detection. The benefit of ID R&D’s passive face liveness is that it is both secure and easy to use. Whereas other products add extra steps and time to the liveness check, IDLive Face is imperceptible to customers who don’t even know it’s happening. And, the software gives no clues to fraudsters on how to beat it. Because passive liveness is less confusing for users, abandonment rates are greatly reduced and less human intervention is needed.

    IDLive Face is the world’s first passive facial liveness detection product to identify spoofing attempts based on the same selfie used for facial matching and NO user participation — no smiling, blinking, head-turning, lights flashing, or moving the camera. This unique single image liveness detection approach is fast, accurate, and doesn’t require any capture-side software. The product uses patent-pending methodologies and a Deep Neural Network (DNN) based approach that examines different elements of the image to detect artifacts that help distinguish between a photo of a live person and a presentation attack. Read the single image facial liveness tech brief.

    Make the switch from Active to Passive Facial Liveness

    Understanding passive vs. active facial liveness is crucial. Most of today’s facial liveness technologies are “active”, requiring users to blink, turning their heads or move their phone back and forth. This results in three issues: First, fraudsters can present a photo with cut out with eye holes, use a mask or show a video to trick the system. Second, challenge-response techniques put attackers on alert that they are being checked. And lastly, active methods create friction that slows the authentication process, increases abandon rates and diminishes the overall user experience.

    The team at ID R&D has worked relentlessly to ensure you don’t have to sacrifice usability for security. Customers and partners who have made the switch from active to passive facial liveness, report significant reduction in abandonment, lower false rejections of real users, and highly accurate presentation attack detection.

    IDLive Face is the only single frame passive liveness product to achieve iBeta Levels 1 and 2 ISO/IEC 30107-3 presentation attack detection (PAD) compliance with a perfect score. Read more about iBeta here.
