The field of biometrics has rapidly grown over the past few years with new companies entering the market every month. This massive growth caused by the greater demand for biometric services makes it crucial for customers and users to ascertain the quality of the technologies used to be certified and assessed under the strictest and most updated standards and regulations.
In this sense, Veridas has recently become the only company to be included in NIST’s evaluations for facial recognition (both 1:1 and 1:N) and speaker recognition (1:1). In addition, Veridas has passed ISO 30.107 iBeta Level 1 PAD (Presentation Attack Detection) test for its Liveness Detection solution and also holds ISO 27.001 on the Security of Information Systems accredited by Bureau Veritas.
With these external evaluations, Veridas submits its technologies to the highest evaluation standards in terms of transparency, quality of the algorithms and low gender and racial bias, aligning with the European Proposal for a Regulation laying down harmonised rules on artificial intelligence (Artificial Intelligence Act), proposed by the European Commission on the 21st of April.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology in the US is the most relevant institution in terms of biometric technologies’ standardization. NIST carries out periodic evaluations of biometric engines submitted by different providers to assess and provide unbiased accuracy and performance rates in different environments.
NIST participation is completely free of charge and open to any vendor or institution.
Veridas has been submitting its technologies to NIST’s evaluations since 2018 and continues to do so with the strong belief that constant scrutiny is the only way to maintain its position as a global leader in the biometric solutions market.
