Facial liveness assessment technology perfectly complements the facial recognition mechanism by assessing whether a biometric sample comes from a living person present at the time of authorization.
In the case of identity documents (ID cards, passports, driving licenses), the viability verification is checking and confirming the authenticity of the document presented in front of the camera or detecting its digital fakes. Distinguishing a real document from a digital image is possible thanks to the use of unique document analysis technology.

Identity verification by facial and document liveness is completely remote. It starts by verifying the authenticity of the user’s ID document, then the user takes a selfie during which they conduct a liveness test. The face scan is compared with the ID photo. In this way, we receive information whether the person in front of the smartphone or computer screen is who they say they are.

The currently developed systems for detecting facial liveness are more and more technologically advanced, they use deep learning algorithms, which makes their use more secure – most of them can detect a face mask, recognize an avatar or catch third parties that appear within the range of the camera in during verification, thus preventing fraud.

IDR&D solutions are an example of such advanced products. These are best-in-class solutions based on artificial intelligence. They are easy to use. Facial liveness detection takes just a second, while the whole process can take from a few to several seconds. An advantage is a fact that these solutions can be easily integrated with mobile, Internet, communication and telephone channels.

Thanks to establishing partnership cooperation with IDR&D, about which we informed you at the end of last year – here is the link – these solutions are now available on our market. These technologies can be easily integrated with the voice biometrics we offer, enabling the implementation of a very strong, two-step biometric authentication process.

Therefore, looking globally at the development of biometric technologies, facial and document liveness detection seems to be a natural step used in authentication processes. This is another, apart from voice, modern form of authorization, which convinces us because of its ease of use and high level of security.

Voice authentication is a type of authorization that uses voice to log in or confirm your identity. Each person has unique voice characteristics that are unique and distinguish them from others. Thanks to this voice identification is possible and it is slowly becoming a part of our everyday life because according to statistics 50% of the population accepts this method as a method of authorization.

What are the benefits of voice authentication? 5 reasons to be with voice biometrics for YES.
1. Convenience of use. Authorization by voice is very easy, it does not require remembering passwords or codes which each of us has several to be able to function in the digital world around us. We are solely recognized by our unique voice.

2. High degree of security much higher than in traditional methods such as a pin. At the beginning, we eliminate the number of attacks and extortions we deal with today, mainly on the Internet through so-called phishing. More and more people are falling victim to pin or data theft for financial extortion purposes. CSiRT NASK in 2021 noted that there were as much as 182% more cyberattacks of this kind compared to the previous year, so the scale of online crimes is still growing. With voice authorization, in order to obtain 100% security, we can use two-step verification, it’s then very strong and eliminates the possibility of any other person or avatar impersonating us.

3. Availability. An unquestionable advantage of biometric authorization through voice is that it can be used by anyone including people with limited abilities such as visually impaired or blind people. According to the data of the Central Statistical Office, in Poland, there are nearly 2 billion of such people and 3 billion are people with a certified disability – more than 10% of the whole society. Therefore we eliminate to a large extent the barriers related to digital exclusion.

4.  Touchlessness. Nowadays, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a big advantage. The implementation of that contactless solution protects our health and becomes a priority factor. That is why voice biometrics is our “number 1”. Voice biometrics is listed among the TOP 10 technologies of the future in the McKinsey report next to AI, IoT, Blockchain, 3D Printing, Quantum Computers and Genomics.

5. Not required the installation of additional devices. A token and other devices of this type are not needed. Authorization takes place only through natural speech. For B2B customers it also reduces the costs associated with the purchase and maintenance of such devices.
