HYPR biometric encryption ensures user credentials are decentralized and stored offline. A cryptographic digital key is generated from a biometric such as a fingerprint or voice and is used to sign transactions initiated by a relying party. Raw biometric data is never sent through the network or stored in a central database.
Our next-gen multi-factor authentication solution provides biometric encryption based on these guiding principles:
– No authentication channel should rely on the centralized storage of biometrics.
– End-users should be able to choose which biometric authenticators they will utilize.
– Biometric data should remain encrypted and protected against malware on a user’s device.
– Relying parties should be able to set policies for which biometric authenticators can be used.
