Universal Compatibility

ZoOm makes biometric authentication fast, easy and incredibly secure for everyone, regardless of their device. Simply center your face in the oval and move the camera a few inches closer to your face. As you ZoOm in, the front-facing camera captures high-resolution video frames of your 3D face and you instantly gain access.

Cross-Platform Portability

ZoOm makes true cross-platform biometric authentication possible with 3D FaceMaps that can be created on almost any device with a camera.  You can enroll using a laptop webcam and authenticate later from a smartphone or tablet.  The same ZoOm motion accesses any enabled App or webpage, so it’s now possible to use face authentication for everything from unlocking your car door to accessing your bank account.  ZoOm offers more security, flexibility and portability than any other biometric.

ZoOm’s 3D FaceMap is the best of biometric modalities; instantly available to the user, but impossible for a bad actor to record and replay reliably with today’s media technology.

 

ZoOm’s patented process scans a 3D face with a 2D camera to ensure the real user is present and that they match their previous enrollment.  Measurable perspective distortion occurs when a camera is moved closer to a 3D human face, therefor ZoOm captures much more human signal than photos or videos because the FaceMap includes data from unZoOmed, transitional and fully ZoOmed frames.  The ability to reliably determine 3D depth and human liveness makes ZoOm vastly superior to fingerprint, palm, iris and 2D Face.

 

ZoOm detects the difference between “likeness” and “liveness” using Artificial Intelligence, and requires dozens of real human characteristics be observed concurrently. These characteristics cannot be captured and reproduced without measurable generation loss and thus cannot be phished or shared like passwords.

ZoOm’s Encrypted 3D FaceMaps:

  • Ensure User Liveness
  • Stop External Threats
  • Stop Botnet Attacks
  • Stop Credential Sharing
  • Can’t Be Phished From Users
  • Expose Generation Loss in Spoofs

A Note About Biometric Privacy – When addressing biometric privacy concerns, it is critical to understand the significance of Liveness Detection. When a biometric authenticator is truly spoof-proof against digital media, 2D representations of a user won’t fool the system, so bad actors can’t take readily available photos from Facebook or videos from YouTube and use them to impersonate the user. When a biometric system demands the real 3D user be present at the time of authentication, no photo or video will suffice…  2D Spoof attempts are futile and stolen user media is useless.

HOW ZoOm WORKS

ZoOm observes the user’s head, neck, ears, hair, facial features and their environment as the camera is moved closer to the face. During the motion, the camera’s view of the face changes and perspective distortion will be observed if the face is 3D. Conversely,  no distortion occurs with 2D objects like photos or videos. FaceTec’s proprietary algorithms capture ~30 video frames while tracking the motion of the device. The result is a dynamic perspective, 3D face authentication from a standard 2D camera.

 

Spoof Detection 101

To truly understand why ZoOm is revolutionary, the threats that a biometric authenticator faces in the real world must be fully comprehended, first.  So at FaceTec, we dove more deeply into spoofing than anyone else – ever – recreating millions of spoof attempts from every conceivable type of media, and finding ways to stop them.

 

  • 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

ZoOm detects generation loss and catches the copies.  A ZoOm session contains more 3D human signal than any other type of mobile face biometric, and about 100X more signal than a photo alone.  The result is an unsharable, unphishable biometric that is incredibly easy for users to access, yet impossible for criminals to recreate reliably with today’s media technology.

Why Legacy Biometrics Fail

3d face verification

#Trueliveness

  • Despite constant hype, legacy biometrics will never replace passwords because they don’t have robust liveness detection, aren’t portable across devices, and can’t stop phishing, credential sharing or complicit user fraud. With legacy biometrics, trusting an unsupervised authentication remains impossible.
  • Weak legacy “liveness” detection – like wink, blink or smile – is easily spoofed by photos and avatar videos. It doesn’t matter how many weak factors you string together for MFA. If a cooperative user can spoof the system with self-captured media, then it can’t be considered secure.
  • ZoOm’s robust liveness detection stops external threats like phishing, and internal threats like credential sharing and buddy punching.
  • ZoOm is so secure it’s the ONLY factor in many high-security scenarios, such as car-sharing, border security, mobile banking and mobile payments.
  • ZoOm is the new standard in biometrics because it’s universal, portable across-devices and across-platforms just like a password, but much more secure.

Biometric Best Practices

   

     

   

   

   

  • Choose strong 3D liveness & anti-spoofing technology. Without it, you can’t trust unsupervised authentications and your brand will be at risk for security & PR problems.
  • Don’t expect users to buy a specific device just for your biometric. It needs to work on what they already have.
  • Insist on a straightforward, intuitive interface. User’s must prefer the biometric or they won’t use it at all.
  • Server-side matching is the only biometric model that can truly replace passwords, enable cross-platform logins, simplify device upgrades and allow multiple devices/user. On-device matching isn’t future proof.
  • Choose a diverse algorithm. Don’t be accused of having a “racist” biometric just because the training sets used to create it were too homogeneous. ZoOm trained with users from over 158 countries.

ZoOm vs.Face ID

Apple and FaceTec both provide 3D Face Authentication, but Face ID is a hardware-based solution that only unlocks a specific phone, it has no cross-device, cross-platform capabilities and Apple is only ~14% of the global smart device market.  ZoOm is a universal, portable, secure, 100% software solution that provides the flexibility of cross-device, cross-platform face authentication, and is the only biometric authenticator to successfully pass the iBeta Level 1 PAD ISO 30107-3 test.
