FRICTIONLESS SECURITY FOR REAL USERS

Password Replacement


The intuitive ZoOm interface makes Certified Liveness Detection and 3D Face Matching fast, easy, and incredibly secure for everyone, regardless of their device. During onboarding, FaceTec’s two-second video-selfie verifies Liveness, matches the user’s 3D FaceMap to their Photo ID, and sets up their new account. Every time they return, FaceTec’s ongoing authentication again proves Liveness and compares their new 3D FaceMap to the one enrolled. If they match they get instant access, no password required!

BRICK WALL FOR BAD ACTORS



Login from any smartphone, tablet, PC or Laptop, and unlock everything from your car door to your bank account. Real users gain access easily, but bad actors, bots and hackers are rebuffed by Level 1&2 Anti-Spoofing Certified by NIST/iBeta. FaceTec is the Face Authentication market leader and provides more security, portability, and convenience than any other biometric.

HOW FACETEC WORKS

During the user session, the camera’s view of the 3D face changes, observing perspective distortion and proving it is 3D. In under two seconds, FaceTec’s Device SDK processes 100+ video frames and reverse engineers a 3D FaceMap from the standard 2D camera.




No Recent Liveness Data = No Honeypot Risk

Presentation Attack Detection tests include:
  • 2D paper photos & digital images
  • High resolution videos
  • Image swap-in after liveness check
  • Paper masks with eye & mouth cutouts
  • Hollywood masks, wax figures & lifelike dolls
  • Photos or video frames animated into avatars
  • Video projections on 3D heads
  • Sleeping users with closed eyes
  • Impostors, lookalikes & identical twins
Identical Twin Differentiation and Age Estimate:
  • Facetec can differentiate 1:1 best possible differentiate technology on the market for detecting a twin.
  • Age Check accuracy calculated from 3D FaceMaps. No Photo ID is Required, the Age is estimated from the user's face only. Age Checks on 2D Images is supported, but accuracy varies depending on 2D image quality. FaceTec's Age Check is much more accurate then 2D Age Checks because of the rich data in the 3D FaceMap.

Stop Spoofing

2D VS. 3D




2D Face Recognition will never provide the accuracy needed for Face Authentication.  There is too much variability and overlapping similarity in human faces to achieve a high enough FAR (False Accept Rate) when they are flattened from 3D to 2D.  Apple’s 3D Face ID uses a special hardware sensor that unlocks a specific phone, but cannot be used on any other devices.




Attack Vectors include:
  • 2D paper photos & digital images
  • High resolution videos
  • Image swap-in after liveness check
  • Paper masks with eye & mouth cutouts
  • Hollywood masks, wax figures & lifelike dolls
  • Photos or video frames animated into avatars
  • Video projections on 3D heads
  • Sleeping users with closed eyes
  • Impostors, lookalikes & doppelgangers
