STC Group – represented by SpeechPro in North America – has launched a new cloud-based authentication solution that combines facial and voice recognition.
Called OnePass, it offers a secure authentication mechanism that is simple and straightforward for the users: One needs only to look at her device’s camera and to recite a generated numeric code for identity verification. It isn’t the code that’s important, but rather the unique biometrics pertaining to the user’s face and voice.
The use of biometrics and government-run centralized biometric databases is on the rise, and SpeechPro, the U.S. operating arm of Russia-based Speech Technology Center, has been at the center of it all.
ImageWare Systems announced it signed a deal valued at more than $1 million with Funciones Ocupacionales Insha, to provide software that will facilitate a multi-modal biometric driver license system for the state of Baja California, Mexico.
The project, which will begin in the third quarter of 2014, will help create more than one million licenses for Baja California over the next three years.
For this contract, ImageWare will receive one time license fees for the software itself, along with ongoing payments for providing continuous professional services and maintenance.
