Arxan Enters Market For Biometric System Security

Arxan Technologies : 24 February, 2011  (Application Story)
Through partnership with iris recognition supplier, Arxan provides additional layer of security through its software for the biometric market
Arxan Technologies and IriTech, a provider of iris-based biometric technology, have announced a new layer of software security now available for the biometric market across both public and private sectors.

 

IriTech’s technology includes high-resolution iris cameras which support automated quality-based image acquisition and the core Iris SDK.   IriTech’s patented iris recognition algorithm which enables their technology was recognized in the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) IREX 2008 test as outperforming other competitors on many factors, and most significantly ranking as the best performance in terms of accuracy and interoperability.  The intellectual property behind Iritech’s unique and powerful iris algorithm is now protected by Arxan’s GuardIT solution. 

 

IriTech is making use of Arxan’s award-winning GuardIT application hardening product to ensure that its patented iris recognition algorithms are protected against compromise.  GuardIT protects the software by deploying various code protection techniques (called Guards) such as obfuscation, checksum, repair, anti-debug and others, to ensure no single point of failure.  This layered and diverse Guarding paradigm provides control, trust and tamper-resistance for the application without affecting the source code or functionality of the application.  As IriTech’s solutions are increasingly adopted by private companies and government agencies around the world for security and iris identification, Iritech’s customers will benefit from this critical layer of software security.

 

“It is imperative that IriTech’s technology not only deliver the most accurate results, but it also be protected from would-be hackers who could disrupt the system and compromise the end customer’s security assets,” said Terry Seo, general manager, IriTech.  “By working with Arxan, IriTech is able to meet the demands of our customers who require the most accurate and secure iris identification solutions available on the market.”

 

According to the International Biometric Group, the global biometrics market is witnessing rapid adoption with annual iris recognition revenues projected to approach $500 million by 2012.  Biometric security makes use of parts of the human body as security code.  Such proprietary biometric data of each individual needs to be converted into digital data.  The associated software that enables digitization, as well as data management for enrollment and matching needed for verification and identification, will  now be secured against hacker attacks.  To this end, it’s critical that biometric solutions are hardened at the software code level.

 

“Solutions such as IriTech’s eye scan software products provide leading-edge and highly accurate identification technology for mission-critical applications,” said Tom van Gorder, vice president of worldwide sales and channels, Arxan.  “We are pleased to protect this technology and the assets it secures with our GuardIT software protection platform so that Iritech’s technology can be hardened against tampering and hacking and the integrity of their software code is maintained.”
