Biometric Access Control Using High Throughput Face Recognition
Face recognition is one of the most talked-about technologies in biometrics and beyond for its ability to touchlessly authenticate individuals’ identities without ever pressing a button. Common in the consumer electronics industry among cell phones, tablets and laptops, face recognition is highly accessible and agile, able to adapt to any business’s security demands.
How Face Recognition Works
Like any other biometric, face recognition is all about matching. When a user is enrolled, the face recognition camera takes a snapshot - then the system's algorithm takes over to do the hard work.
An intelligent, automated process picks out unique data points on a person’s face and converts those points to an encrypted code that the solution can quickly recognize for fast matching later. These data points are facial details, like the distance between the eyes or the shape of the chin, but your facial recognition system understands and communicates the features in mathematical code.
When someone who is enrolled steps up to the camera later on to gain access or track time, your system’s algorithm converts another snapshot to this encrypted code and compares it to all of the stored codes in its database. When it’s a match, the person is authenticated – and all this takes just a few seconds.
The code used to store facial data is always encrypted at every stage of use: enrollment, communication and matching. No one will ever be able to decrypt this code and use it to make a copy of a person’s face to trick a good face recognition solution.
