Biometric Authentication

Biometric authentication is the automated recognition of an individual using unique physiological characteristics, such as fingerprints, and/or behavioral characteristics, such as keystroke pattern.


Biometrics: “Who you are” authentication

We all have many digital identities but only one unique physical identity. HID Global provides biometrics solutions — the only authentication factor that is directly coupled with a person’s unique physical identity.

Knowing with certainty who is performing a transaction is an essential part of a complete authentication solution. Biometrics is the only mode of authentication that can unequivocally validate a person's identity. HID Biometrics offers this certainty along with greater security and convenience — with no added complexity for the user.

The ability to couple and provide secure digital credentials on either a card, mobile and other smart devices, or with biometrics is at the core of what HID Global offers. HID Global’s Lumidigm® multispectral imaging technology is designed from ground up to provide:

  • Superior biometrics performance in real world environments, irrespective of race, gender, age or physical conditions
  • World class liveness detection, spoof prevention and proof of life
  • The highest level of tamper proofing and data encryption for data integrity

Our biometric authentication solutions can be found around the world in a wide variety of applications. In Brazil, Lumidigm biometrics is widely used to access ATMs. In the US, it secures access to controlled medicines and medical records. In Hong Kong, the immigration department uses Lumidigm biometrics to secure borders.
