New FaceTec White Paper Highlights Importance of Anti-Spoofing StandardsToward the end of this summer, FaceTec‘s ZoOm 3D Face Login authentication solution became the first in the world to attain Level 1 certification in iBeta’s Presentation Attack Detection evaluation. ZoOm, which uses a mobile device’s camera to establish a 3D selfie that can be subjected to highly sophisticated facial recognition, attained a 100 percent anti-spoofing score in the iBeta test.

For industry insiders, that is extremely impressive. But for those in adjacent areas, the importance of this achievement might be difficult to fully understand. So FaceTec has now published a white paper outlining the situation.

The white paper doesn’t merely detail FaceTec’s achievement in iBeta’s PAD test, however. It comprehensively lays out the growing proliferation of biometric security, the serious risks that presentation attacks pose, and the consequent importance of independent, accredited industry testing – with iBeta’s PAD testing being the world’s first certified against the ISO 30107-3 standard, and iBeta itself being certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology through its National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program.

It’s an insightful, easy-to-understand overview of these important topics in digital security, and well worth a look for anyone feeling a bit overwhelmed by the technicalities of biometric security. And though it doesn’t dwell on FaceTec’s achievement with iBeta, many will likely come away with a stronger appreciation of it after reading.
