How it Works
The software measures the unique way every user moves their mouse, finger or stylus when they log in with their biometric password. Biometric identifiers such as the length, speed, direction, angle and height of each stroke are collected by the software to create the user’s unique biometric profile. In seconds, after drawing only 4 characters, BioSig-ID™ software establishes whether the user who registered is the same person trying to access the account.
The password is instantly compared against the previously created enrollment profile and access is only granted if they match. BioSig-ID is so intelligent it discerns variations in drawing style by the user so it is not necessary to draw in the same area with the exact same size. BioSig-ID is smart. With every use BioSig-ID learns, getting even more accurate.
The software comes with a robust suite of tools and an audit trail that captures all the activity surrounding the authentication event, providing an acute forensic tool to help determine risks/patterns of fraud. BioSig-ID can be used from any device: mobile, tablet and PC that runs HTML5 or Flash.
BioSig-ID™is by itself multi-factor and multi-layer, so it does not require the use of another vendor or factor. Multi-factor authentication uses a combination of two of the following factors, either “something you know,” (your secret password is “something you know”), “something you are,” (actually drawing the password is “something you are”) and/or “something you have,” (combined with our out of band SMS/QR code also creates another factor “something you have”).
All networks will eventually move to multi-factor authentication. BioSig-ID’s elegant combination of gesture biometric with password knowledge gives you freedom from other multi-factor solutions that require hardware, fobs, keys, tokens and require admins to handle password storage and management.
