BARCELONA, Spain, Feb.24,2017 /PRNewswire/ --EyeLockLLC, a leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, will demonstrate its elite iris biometric solutionon the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon' 835 mobile platform with X16 LTE at Mobile World Congress 2017 (February 27 - March 2, 2017) in Qualcomm's Booth in Hall 3, Stand 3E10.
The Snapdragon 835 processor contains the Qualcomm Haven' security platform-a combination of hardware, software and biometrics technologies that help to provide additional security features for online banking and payments.It also includes hardware-based user authentication, device attestation, and device security for use cases such as mobile payments, enterprise access, and personal data protection.
Beyond secure fingerprint identification, a Snapdragon 835 processor is designed to provide a user with an extra level of safety and simplicity using Secure Camera-a camera-based biometric solution for iris and facial recognition engineered to help enhance device security.
"By 2018, most new smartphones releasedin the worldwill include biometrics. The Qualcomm 835 Haven Secure Camera feature provides additional security for your most personal information - your biometriciristemplate,the key to all your data, with specialized hardware and software," saidSy Choudhury, senior director of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "Further, webelievethe Snapdragon 835 security camera implementation provides a solid foundationfor theEyeLocksolution."
Smartphone developers are increasingly adopting iris recognition as the gold-standard among biometric solutions because of its rich information density. EyeLock's proprietary iris authentication technology examines more than 240 unique iris characteristics of each eye and provides a fast, user-friendly experience with a natural sensing distance of roughly 60 cm. The algorithm performance capabilities for speed and accuracy have been tested and validated byNovetta, a leader in advanced analytics technology and independent biometric testing, as unmatched in the market with a false accept rate of 1 in 1.5 million for single eye authentication and a false reject rate of less than 1%.
"EyeLockand Qualcomm Technologies worked together to achieve a breakthrough level of device security and biometric usability for smartphones and the IoT segment-at-large," said Jeff Carter, Chief Technology Officer at EyeLock."The device we will demonstrate at Mobile World Congress features fast iris recognition at a comfortable arm's-length distance Utilizing the Qualcomm Haven Secure Camera interface with dedicated processing and encryption to sign, store and execute matching of mathematical templates of your iris biometric, we now are able to offer one of the most advanced security techniques available."
