Technological advancements in recent years have seen major advancements in authentication techniques. It is increasingly evident that biometric solutions are more reliable and secure, preventing systems from being manipulated and hacked or bypassed. Like any other system, a biometric system follows a set of guidelines to keep the system safe and effective. The biometric systems used by institutions and organizations in the early days had some limitations, such as noise in sensing data, intra-class variation, inter-class similarity, non-universality, spoofing attacks, etc., and the emergence of multimodal biometrics overcomes these limitations gender verification. Biometric authentication uses a unique combination of measurable physical characteristics (fingerprints, facial features, eye irises, voiceprint, etc.) that cannot be easily imitated or faked by others.
More secure biometric authentication
Vulnerabilities present in single-modal biometric authentication are addressed by the introduction of multimodal biometric authentication, which utilizes more than one physical or behavioral characteristic for verification. It also provides anti-spoofing measures by making it difficult for intruders to spoof multiple biometrics at the same time.
Systems using multimodal biometrics have been shown to address several issues with single-modal biometrics. Multimodal systems utilize many biometric factors, therefore, fusion can initialize more data points, thereby improving the classification of data points. The combination of standards also provides flexibility to the system and prevents noisy data from having a significant impact on the results. Multimodal systems are generally more secure because there are many layers of authentication and even if one of the elements is compromised, the system can still be protected. To address non-generality, the system analyzes patterns from multiple biometric parameters. Even if they are missing the necessary factor, the system is still able to authenticate someone through other factors. There are many benefits to having a multimodal biometric system in place, which gives businesses an advantage in executing their processes smoothly.
Use of Biometric Authentication
Businesses are starting to see the advantages of transitioning from traditional authentication methods to biometrics. Technological advances, increased cyberattacks, and the failure of the Pin user password authentication scheme have all contributed to the growth of biometrics. Additionally, the advent of e-wallets and the digitization of traditional capital markets, insurance and banking have changed the way businesses do business. However, as the digital attack surface expands, so do the threats. Businesses are using biometrics to prevent identity fraud, provide audit trails and protect financial data.
The use of multimodal biometric authentication enables businesses to reduce reliance on cards, PINs and passwords, increasing trust by ensuring exclusive access to accounts. The rise of new and advanced multi-modal biometric authentication security provides access control systems with facial recognition and fingerprint readers to prevent identity fraud by protecting personal identities. At the same time, it also integrates the login and time attendance system to reduce the manual workload of the organization.
In India, the adoption of biometric authentication became common with the introduction of Aadhaar. To protect an individual’s digital identity, Aadhaar uses a combination of biometrics for multi-modal authentication: fingerprint and iris to ensure reliable and authentic identification.Identities are created based on an individual’s biometric characteristics, making it easy to protect data from any fraud, according to IBEF data for August 2022 234.5 million The completion of the e-KYC transaction shows the enhanced trust of Aadhaar and the security it provides.
It can be concluded that authentication comes in many forms. The most popular authentication mechanism is biometrics. The growing need for security has given rise to an advanced system known as a multimodal biometric system, which has evolved from the simple single-modal systems that biometrics originally used, which typically consisted of only one biometrics. Multiple biometric elements are used in multimodal systems, making them more secure and flexible with respect to different biometric factors. Furthermore, the emergence of digital solution providers has improved the security of the financial sector by incorporating biometric authentication to build efficient and secure multi-modal authentication systems.
