This national austrian funded project focuses on improving mobile document authentication and identity verification to create the person checking procedure of the future. This shall be achieved by utilizing smartphones and their onboard sensors.In this project, the use of such systems and sensors is investigated and demonstrated in terms of a proof-of -concept. Different concepts and architectures are compared and the integration into the control workflow will be demonstrated. Additionally, tools for acquisition of biometric features in mobile application will be developed. The research will be conducted with the permanent interaction with social, ethical and legal researchers to guarantee that the results achieved will be accepted by the user groups and the citizens. Data protection and data security will be considered from the very beginning of the design. More information:[tt_news]=349&cHash=d7686250a3fb9...


PIDaaS (Private Identity as a Service) is a project co-funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme of the European Union as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) Call ICT PSP 7th call for proposals 2013.The project aims to create a secure authentication system, based on biometric recognition technologies (digital fingerprint scanner, voice and face recognition) through mobile devices. PIDaaS aims at exploiting traditional biometric technologies and platforms for identity management to create an innovative service: biometric data, as main factor to guarantee identity, will be paired with other metadata (relating to hardware, software and network) to better ensure the certainty of each authentication request. Moreover, PIDaaS also adds biometric template protection schemes (BTPS) to avoid the risks connected to other classical solution and to ensure irreversibility, revocability, as well as non connectability and renewability.
