FacePhi achieves maximum security compliance

The company has obtained from iBeta the ISO 30107 compliance validation through its liveness test technology and facial biometric identity verification.

FacePhi algorithms have been invulnerable throughout all the compliance obtainment process with 0% successful attacks.

FacePhi, a company specialized in multi-factor biometric solutions, has obtained ISO 30107 compliance after its liveness test and facial biometric identity verification technology has overcome all the attacks required by this standard, the most demanding one currently existing in the industry. 

This standard establishes, through the consensus of experts from around the world, the different types of attacks to which a biometric system can be exposed, and the way in which they must be reproduced and evaluated. ISO 30107 therefore consists of a set of guidelines, the purpose of which is to submit a biometric technology to the most effective attacks possible to break its security measures, in order to assess to what extent it is reliable before phishing attempts.

To evaluate FacePhi’s technology, the software QA & testing company iBeta Quality Assuarance was appointed. iBeta is an organization based in Denver, Colorado (USA), with more than 20 years of experience in the analysis of quality and security of critical software services. In addition to its Audit and Compliance services in different fields and platforms, it has the only laboratory in the world accredited for the evaluation of biometric systems by the National Institute of Standards and Techonology (NIST). 

Thus, to complete the security analysis of FacePhi’s facial recognition technology, iBeta has carried out a complete metric audit and compliance process for this biometric solution that has lasted several months. This analysis has culminated in the company obtaining the compliance letter, which certifies overcoming the attacks defined in ISO 30107 standard.

The compliance letter states that FacePhi technology has passed all the tests it has undergone, both for its liveness test and for its biometric identity verification system, with 0% of successful attacks (IAPMR = 0% and FMR = 0%). From this, it is concluded that FacePhi’s algorithms have been invulnerable to attacks throughout the process.

As stressed by the Director of the Quality Department, Jorge Félix Iglesias, “facial recognition is reaffirmed as the most valuable biometric tool to ensure the comfort and security of users in any area where they need to validate their identity.” “The way it is used avoids any contact and is simple and intuitive. This has led to a great boom in technology and, consequently, represents a push for biometric companies to work on quality standards according to demand”, says Félix.
