FaceSense is a state-of-the-art authentication solution based on the science of facial recognition. It is probably the most natural way of verifying the identity of a person.
How it works
The ubiquitousness of computer webcams and mobile phones with built-in cameras make the face recognition an ideal two-factor authentication system for Web applications.
FaceSense is designed to add additional security layer to the desktop and web logon procedure with convenience. It allows access to local desktop computers and remote web applications in an easy, fast and secure way by using any standard webcam. The login of the user is performed automatically once the face has been recognized by the system.
FaceSense is one of many authentication methods supported in the DualShield unified, multi-factor authentication platform. Combined with the user’s password and/or security token, VoiceSense can be deployed to provide 2-factor or 3-factor authentication, i.e.
- Something the user knows (e.g. password, PIN), and
- Something the user has (e.g. security token, smart card); and/or
- Something the user is (e.g. voice, face, keystroke pattern).
Fast EnrollmentThe enrollment of FaceSense is simple and quick. During the enrolment, the user is asked to look at the camara and keep his/her posture for a few seconds, and a unique face model is then automatically created for the user.
Automatic LoginThe authentication process is equally simple and brief. When the authentication is needed, the user is asked to look at the camera and keep his/her posture for a few seconds. A real-time face model is then created and compared with the face model stored in the user’s account. If the real-time model matches with the stored model, the user will be automatically logged in.
Adaptive LearningFaceSense system can automatically adapt itself over time to take into account the ageing effects on an individual’s facial features.
