Mobile technologies: expanding our digital identities


Day 3 - May 2

Technologies enabling mobile devices are evolving at a furious pace. This session will look at some of the very latest technologies that are making our mobile phones such a critical part of how we assert and secure our digital identities.


Rethinking the blink – How the next generation of mobile biometric authentication solutions will improve liveness detection and overall security
Robert Mungovan, Vice President Biometrics, Aware, Inc. USA

There is strong demand for mobile biometric authentication solutions that deliver the convenience of password-free login without compromising security. Device manufacturers are raising their game with biometric login, but relying on them risks leaving a large population of app users out in the cold, and restricts their options. This is why technologists are working hard to improve the usability and performance of biometric authentication that operates independently from the device.

This session will survey the field of methods to improve biometric authentication performance, with a wide variation of innovations in biometric capture, liveness detection, and matching using only the universal device sensors: camera, microphone, and touchscreen. It will investigate multimodal methods that improve performance and security without detracting from the user experience.

•    A survey of the field of next-generation biometric authentication techniques;
•    Multimodal biometric authentication techniques;
•    Liveness detection challenges and solutions;
•    Pros, cons, and considerations of device- vs. server-centric architectures.


Asserting digital identity on the move
Neville Pattinson, Senior Vice President of Federal Government Sales at Gemalto, USA

As we adapt the capabilities of mobile phones to various situations, we can bring greater convenience and enhanced security to remote identity verification scenarios by first verifying the authenticity of an identity document, and secondly biometrically matching the photo from the document to a selfie of the presenter. This functionality enables us to assert, verify and secure our digital identities in the mobile environment.


Multi-modal biometrics for conversational interface
Alexey Khitrov, President, ID R&D, USA

Over 50% of US population already use some type of voice-based virtual assistants or chatbots. Consumers now expect that they can get important tasks done by talking to special devices (think of Alexa, Google Pod), mobile phones, even cars and home appliances.

However, Conversational Interface (CI) as it stands today, lacks convenient and secure authentication mechanisms that allow the use of CI for purchases, monetary transactions, and sharing sensitive information without leaving the ecosystem, therefore limiting its usability.
