Firm targets trolls with biometrics
04 September 2018 11:22 GMT

Secure ID software firm Authenteq has developed a biometric authentication solution called Trollteq to defend users from malicious internet users.

Authenteq has developed a unique online identity which is based on their Authenteq ID program. The software, as ZDNet reports, allows users to create a verified online identity, such as based on their government identification and biometric facial recognition. This can be created in less than 90 seconds.

Through the use of Trolltec and its propeitary"liveness" detection system, the identification technique means that a person really is present online and not just an automated bot. With this concept, when accessing a website a person would need to verify themselves by making "claims." A claim can be parts of the identity (such as name, age, nationality, and so on). Recorded claims can then be matched against the hashed values and validated.

According to Authenteq CTO, Adam Martin: “the original mixture of facial biometrics and our tamper-evident analyses allows 100-percent automatic on-line ID assurance to the extent that on-line products and services want lately. We’re using the tamper-proof advantages equipped via our non-public blockchain ledger the place handiest hashes are saved and we will be able to anchor transaction hashes into any dispensed blockchain ledger."

He adds: "We make the most of the tamper-proof advantages equipped via our non-public blockchain ledger the place handiest hashes are saved and we will be able to anchor transaction hashes into any dispensed blockchain ledger. Any for my part identifiable consumer data is consumer managed and saved, making a actually self-sovereign identification.”
