Aware, Inc., a leading global provider of biometrics software and solutions, today introduced FIDO Suite, a family of software products that enable secure biometric authentication on mobile devices using facial “selfie” images.
The first three products in FIDO Suite achieved certification in the three FIDO UAF (Universal Authentication Framework) categories required in a complete solution: Server, Client, and Authenticator. Certification was earned in part by achieving interoperability with products from other vendors at the most recent testing event sponsored by the FIDO Alliance.
“FIDO’s broad industry support makes it the most promising path to ending our reliance on passwords for online authentication, and facial biometrics will play a major role,” commented David Benini, VP of Marketing at Aware. “Aware’s FIDO offerings are part of a range of mobile solutions that apply the depth of our technology to the special challenges of biometric enrollment and authentication, such as image quality assurance, ease of capture, and liveness detection.”
“FIDO aligns well with Aware’s long history of implementing biometric standards as well-supported off-the-shelf software products,” added Rob Mungovan, VP of Biometrics. “Standards are critical to the success of consumer-focused applications, so we’re pleased to see such broad support for FIDO.”
FIDO Suite products include: i) Aware FIDO Face Authenticator; ii) Aware FIDO Client; and iii) Aware FIDO Server. Each product is available on an a la carte basis. Aware FIDO Face Authenticator performs advanced active and passive liveness detection measures, as well as high-performance facial image autocapture, quality control, and biometric matching. It is compatible with Aware FIDO Client, as well as certified client products from other suppliers. Aware FIDO Server is similarly certified and interoperable, available as a module of Aware’s market-leading Biometric Services Platform (BioSP).
