BioSig-ID, Mitek enable digital identity proofing for gesture biometrics

Wednesday 6 February 2019 10:16 CET | News

Mitek and BioMetric Signature ID have revealed a partnership in order for Mitek to provide identity verification for its authentication solution BioProof-ID.

The aim of this is for Mitek’s technology to be used to verify the individual’s identity as part of the BioSig-ID enrollment process. As BioSig-ID offers biometric solutions that protect sensitive digital records, in industries such as education, healthcare, and banking, this partnership solution links BioMetric Signature ID’s (BSI) gesture technology to a real person without a break in the identity verification process, thus creating a streamlined approach.

Moreover, as part of the collaboration, Mitek’s Mobile Verify will be a component of BioProof-ID’s authentication process. Mobile Verify confirms users’ identities by digitally validating the authenticity of government issued identity documents presented during the enrollment process. A second layer of identity verification is added, as biometric face comparison algorithms are used to automatically compare the portrait extracted from the identity document with a selfie. This comparison proves if the person submitting the ID document is its rightful owner.
