Biometric Identity Verification

Getting to Know Biometric-Based Identity Verification

Biometric verification is an identity validation process using a person's biological identity, physical characteristics, or behavior and involves a user's face, movement, or possessions being scanned for digital security. The biometrics used can be a single physical characteristic or consist of several characteristics, depending on the infrastructure and the desired level of security.


Biometric Identity Verification Process 

This is the process that occurs when performing biometric verification:

  • The scanned physical characteristics will be mapped to the username/user ID, which will be used to make decisions once the user is authenticated.

  • The system will compare the user's physical characteristics to the scanned results that have been saved. For example, the camera detects the user's face and then saves the scan to the system. If the scan matches the stored sample, then authentication is considered successful

Components of Biometric Identity Verification

A biometric device includes three components:

  1. Reader or scanning device

  2. Technology for converting and comparing collected biometric data

  3. Databases for storage

Authentication is the process of proving or validating a user's identity when they want to access important systems. Authentication is an important step in protecting computer networks and websites against unauthorized access by parties other than the actual user or account owner.


Authentication and Authorization Methods for Network Security

Authentication is an identity validation process that is carried out by comparing the user data sent with the data contained in the database. Authorization is the process of giving power to a user that has been properly validated.


The authentication and authorization steps are carried out by identifying the identity of the user. User identity is verified by comparison with previously stored records or information.


Various Authentication and Authorization Methods

Authentication can be done in several ways:


1. Using Username/ID, Keywords, or a Combination of Both


When logging into an application or software, the system will ask the user to enter a username/ID, password, or a combination of both. In everyday life, generally what is used is a combination of the two, such as when logging into social media or e-mail accounts.


2. Using Identity Card


This is the usual method used for digital banking or financial services, such as when opening an account or e-wallet account, investing, and applying for loans. The system will ask the user to upload an identity card, followed by a selfie while holding the identity card.


3. Using Biometric Verification


Biometric verification is believed to offer a higher level of security because it cannot be faked and transferred.
