Time: June 6th, 11:30 – 12:30
Speaker: Feng, Chunpei (Ant Financial)
The adoption of the fingerprint identification method by iphone5s boosted the usage of biometric technology in mobile phones and the trend is intensifying with more and more android manufactures on-board the bandwagon. But the android manufactures have to deal with a long and fragmented value chain which sees a serious lack of unified standards. To address this challenge, Ant Financial Services Group established the Internet Finance Authentication Alliance (IFAA), in a joint effort with industrial partners including the App developers, OEM manufacturers, and solution providers as well as testing agencies to innovate the authentication scenarios, develop biometrics-based standards, and deliver financial-grade interoperable authentication solutions for end users and organizations.
So far, IFAA technical solutions and standards have covered fingerprint, face, iris as well as multi-factor recognition, with strong TEE/SE capabilities. IFAA standard has been interoperable among over 1.2 billion devices. In addition, IFAA also has good practices in advancing academia-industry cooperation, especially in the area of trusted identities and biometric authentication. A lot of distinguished academic experts are gathered on IFAA platform to explore innovative security technologies.
