Biometrics, a buzz word in the technology space as of late, have received a lot of attention most recently with Apple getting ready to announce the fingerprint scanner in their newest devices. Today we want to get you familiarized with a better alternative, the Eyeprint. What is an Eyeprint? An Eyeprint is the unique and stable map of the blood vessels in the whites of the eye. Notice what the eye looks like when someone looks to the left or right, it could be equated to a one of a kind “map” that is personally unique to you. You can not fabricate, duplicate and you don’t have to remember to bring it along — it’s part of who you are.
So how is this turned into technology and used? EyeVerify provides digital identity authentication at a glance, allowing mobile users to easily and securely access personal and/or sensitive information. Just think, sometime in the not so distant future you will be able to capture this image and use it to log into any information you deem to be secure; your banking applications, health information, etc, all through your mobile device.
Similar to how fingerprints historically were the standard in identifying individuals, EyeVerify is the first and only mobile authentication solution leveraging the uniqueness of eye vein patterns to obtain a person’s ‘eyeprint’ with just a glance. The patented technology is a major advancement in biometrics authentication and is the only approach that uses built-in cameras within mobile devices to image and pattern match the unique veins in the whites of users’ eyes, ensuring highly accurate, fast and convenient security.
Eyeverify is redefining new standards for simple, secure mobile authentication without requiring additional hardware for businesses or end users. So how does it work?
So why is eyeprinting the way to go? The best part is that eyeprinting is captured using the cameras on existing mobile phone devices and soon, tablets. This technology works on both front facing and back facing camera phones – in short, it’s a solution for all users, any time. This technology eliminates the user to have to remember countless pins and passwords, isn’t that something we could all do without?
Stay tuned as we continue to explain how eyeprinting is the nothing to blink about!
