Biometric Authentication Provides Body of Evidence - Nanalyze

#artificialintelligence

If you're as plugged in as we are, then you probably have something like 150 online accounts. That means you probably have 150 variations of the same half-dozen login names and passwords. And chances are, you've gotten a message from a friend in the last few months telling you that it looks like you got hacked again, after he received email spam to enlarge an embarrassingly small body part. Well, we think the days of the alphanumeric password are numbered. The age of biometric authentication is dawning.


AI-based typing biometrics might be authentication's next big thing

Identifying or authenticating people based on how they type is not a new idea, but thanks to advances in artificial intelligence it can now be done with a very high level of accuracy, making it a viable replacement for other forms of biometrics. Research in the field of keystroke dynamics, also known as keyboard or typing biometrics, spans back over 20 years. The technique has already been used for various applications that need to differentiate among computer users, but its widespread adoption as a method of authentication has been held back by insufficient levels of accuracy. Keystroke dynamics relies on unique patterns derived from the timing between key presses and releases during a person's normal keyboard use. The accuracy for matching such typing-based "fingerprints" to individual persons by using traditional statistical analysis and mathematical equations varies around 60 percent to 70 percent, according to Raul Popa, CEO and data scientist at Romanian startup firm TypingDNA.

The Biometric Future of Banking

#artificialintelligence

As the world becomes increasingly more digital, the number of passwords people have to manage is becoming a serious problem. Financial institutions need to investigate acceptable biometric alternatives for authenticating mobile banking users that balance both security and simplicity. For financial institutions, one of the primary goals of digitization is to improve the simplicity of banking. In an effort to improve the user experience, one of the stumbling blocks has been the password authentication process needed to access mobile banking. Combining the need to improve the security of accessing accounts due to increased data breaches, with a desire for greater ease of use, is a difficult balancing act.
