Aware FIDO® Face Authenticator

Product Category:Biometric Authenticator
Product Company:Aware, Inc.
Product Specification:UAF

FIDO Face Authenticator allows a user to login to a mobile application of a relying party (such as a banking app) using their face for authentication. It provides liveness detection via passive mechanisms and also active interaction with the user, including eye blinking. The captured face never leaves the security boundaries of the authenticator application.
Each time the user logs in to the mobile application using FIDO, their face is biometrically verified against the template stored on the device. Once verified, the private key is unlocked from the device and a signature is created on a challenge, which is send to the server. The server verifies the challenge using the stored public key, thus enabling the login process to complete.

Aware’s FIDO Face Authenticator manifests itself in the form of a simple app that can be deployed on a mobile device. It provides a user interface that enables a user to capture his/her face with liveness detection. The captured face is stored in a template form, and is used for subsequent login to FIDO-enabled servers. The interfaces exposed by Aware’s FIDO Face Authenticator are standardized by the FIDO ASM (Authenticator-Specific Module) API. It uses JSON messages to communicate with the FIDO UAF Client residing on the same device.
