3D Face Liveness Blocks 100% of Fraud Attacks in Independent Lab Test

We’re very pleased to announce that our 3D face liveness solution passed ISO/IEC 30170-3 Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) level 1 testing. 

iBeta, an independent NIST-certified biometric testing laboratory in Colorado, recently conducted the testing, and Daon’s solution was able to detect 100% of the 1,800 face attacks including photos, paper masks, and videos.

Generally, it’s best if blogs cover best practices, industry trends, and helpful tips, rather than focusing exclusively on our tech (or so my marketing team tells me). However, we’re making an exception today to share some details on our solution and how we achieved such noteworthy performance.

Presentation Attacks and Liveness Detection

When people ask if their biometrics could be compromised, the simple answer is no. Your biometrics can’t be compromised, because they aren’t secrets. 

But this simple answer makes a rather large assumption—that your biometric system can reliably differentiate between the real you and some imposter with a picture of your face or a recording of your voice. We call this detecting “liveness,” and not every biometric system can do it well.

Highlights from "Hacking Biometrics: a CISO Series Event"

Daon's Head of Engineering, Jason Cramer and PNC Bank's Head of Digital Identity & Fraud, Sridhar Kotamraju, recently joined David Spark, producer of CISO series for a lively discussion on "Hacking Biometrics: An hour of critical thinking about using ourselves as a means to enhance the identity journey and our security posture."

Attendees pitched their best bad ideas (Dance Dance Revolution, anyone?) and had a chance to explore the following:

  • What’s the hangup with biometrics? We’ve had it for so long, why is adoption intermittent? 
  • What are uses of biometrics we’re not familiar with (how exactly does behavioral biometrics work)?
  • What types of biometrics are users being more comfortable with (and what are the best liveness techniques)?
  • If we had full adoption of biometrics, what does that mean for the identity game? What kind of shift would we see in overall security?

Find out what we had to say and check out six minutes of the best moments in the video recap.
