HYPR Corp. is aiming to generate some more excitement over its decentralized authentication platform at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show with three demos.
One demo will likely get some extra attention thanks to its use of the iPhone X, Apple’s splashy new smartphone that uses infrared facial recognition for user authentication. HYPR is planning to demonstrate how this capability as well as voice recognition can be used to regulate access to online and mobile banking applications. Similarly, another demo will showcase how a Samsung Note 8 smartphone can be used to enable biometric authentication based on fingerprint and iris recognition to access a Windows desktop in an enterprise setting.
HYPR’s third demo looks ahead to a biometric ATM of the future, thanks to experimental technology from Diebold-Nixdorf. The demo will show how biometric authentication on a mobile device could be used to access an ATM without any need for a banking card.
All of these demos are premised on HYPR’s decentralized storage of user credentials, which is designed to ensure that a single data breach can’t significantly compromise user data. In the wake of some of last year’s more high-profile breaches, it’s an approach that could generate substantial attention at CES 2018, which runs from January 9th to 12th in Las Vegas.
