Iris recognition is increasingly gaining popularity as more and more smartphone manufacturers adopt this technology and to make it easy for OEMs to incorporate this technology, one of the leads in iris-based identity authentication solutions EyeLock LLC has announced its plans of introduction of three reference designs architected specifically for high volume OEM integration at CES 2017.
EyeLock says that its reference designs offer self-contained hardware and software systems for iris enrollment and authentication that can be customized for a myriad of IoT devices and broad applications including critical infrastructure, automotive, healthcare, financial services, government and more.
One of the major bottlenecks in greater adoption and implementation of iris-based authentication technologies is the issue of integration; however, EyeLock says that its solution now provides maximum flexibility by offering reference designs that have processing and illumination configurations that are either on-board or host-based.
EyeLock says that speed and accuracy of its algorithms have been independently validated by Novetta, which is a leader in advanced analytics technology and independent biometric testing. The reference designs have working distances of up to 60 cm with a false accept rate of 1 in 1.5 million for single eye authentication and a false reject rate of less than 1 per cent.
The company expects the biometric market to grow to more than $40 billion by 2021 and iris authentication garnering the highest adoption. EyeLock’s technology provides an unprecedented level of convenience and security with unmatched biometric accuracy, making it the most proven way to authenticate identity aside from DNA. EyeLock’s proprietary iris authentication technology looks at more than 240 unique iris characteristics and provides a fast, user-friendly experience.
EyeLock is one of the only biometric companies in the world to own and control the entire software and algorithm stack, providing patented approaches to dual-eye authentication, an unmatched security architecture and anti-spoofing technology.
