An industry first, this new capability will bring significant improvements to the privacy of
implementations requiring deduplication and biometric searches, a key step towards a future
without data breaches and without central honeypots of personal data
NEW YORK and TEL AVIV, Israel, April 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Anonymous, the pioneer of decentralized biometrics, today announced the addition of one-to-many identification capabilities to its decentralized biometrics cloud. Anonybit will support fully decentralized deduplication and discovery capabilities for biometrics, enabling significant improvements from a privacy-by-design perspective for a wide range of use cases. This capability is the first of its kind for the cybersecurity industry.
The company’s award-winning technology breaks down biometrics into anonymized bits and distributes them over a vast network where they are encrypted, stored and processed for matching. With Anonybit’s unique approach, there is no need to assemble the components to perform a biometric match, eliminating the risk of a data breach.
“Our goal is to cut off the oxygen that fuels identity thieves by giving them nothing to find and nothing to steal, even if they manage to break into a network,” said Frances Zelazny, co-founder and CEO of Anonybit. “By eliminating central honeypots while enabling strong biometric authentication, we are ushering in a new era for privacy and security, enabled by our innovative decentralized biometric infrastructure. One-to-many capability is the cornerstone of the creating that future, enabling governments, corporations, and other entities to secure a privacy-based registration system for individuals, based on their biometric data. This creates an anchor of trust that supports all others types of deployments, such as verifiable credentials, online account access, time and attendance systems, payments, and others.”
The biometric industry has repeatedly attempted to secure biometric data. All achievements have been limited to a 1:1 match which is used for simpler functions like connecting to an online service. With today’s breakthrough, we are one step closer to completely eliminating centralized biometrics honeypots, even for complex large-scale deployments, such as access control or government ID applications.
The Anonybit framework supports third-party biometric modalities and algorithms, including facial, fingerprint, iris, and voice biometrics. Biometric industry vendors can apply their technologies to the Anonybit decentralized biometric cloud and create privacy-by-design solutions that meet the highest standards of data protection in accordance with GDPR, CPRA and others. privacy regulations.
In addition to offering 1:N capability to biometric solution providers, Anonybit will apply it as an add-on option to its turnkey decentralized authentication product. The decentralized authentication product includes liveness detection, decentralized storage, decentralized 1:1 matching, and integration into orchestration platforms. By adding 1:N matching at the time of registration, companies will be able to ensure that there are no duplicates in their system, which is essential for time and attendance, payroll and other similar applications.
Anonymous recently announcement a $3.5 million seed funding round, in addition to several implementations and partnerships, including Aware, address the security of biometric data, Abinepowering the first decentralized password manager; FacePhi Biometrics to enable its customers to avoid questions about where to store identity data collected for digital onboarding purposes; and DropVaultwhere Anonybit provides users with strong authentication for their B2B encrypted document sharing vault.
