This mobile biometric authentication solution is based on Daon’s IdentityX® software and utilizes a smartphone’s front camera to recognize and identify a person’s face. The information is then transferred to a cloud run by KTNET’s data center, which completes the authentication process, eliminating the need for companies to build and manage their own servers and authentication capabilities.
