In an ever-increasingly connected world, where digitization is on the rise. Increase in security breaches are inevitable. Recent trends suggest that biometric verification technology is the pinnacle of security and is growing exponentially.
Biometric verification is a process of identity authentication that identifies us based on our detectable biological traits which is almost impossible to forge deeming it a key in offering accurate identification and security. But is biometric authentication truly secure when we leave our biometrics around in our everyday lives? What if anyone had the ability to “steal” your biometrics? Once compromised, we can’t change our biometrics, or could we now?
I-Project – Iris Stealing Product
I-project is an iris pattern thieving tool that uses a high definition scanning technology to capture and store Iris patterns. On the back side is a camera that first captures the iris patterns from an image. On the flip side a screen projects the iris image onto the glass dome to mimic an actual eye.
Thieving Thumb – Fingerprint Stealing Product
Thieving-thumb also uses a high definition scanning technology to scan dusted fingerprints. Thumbprints can later be reflected onto the translucent silicone “thumb” to mimic a thumb with fingerprints.
Erasis – Iris Changing Product
Erasis is an iris pattern changing device that uses laser technology to precisely modify the intricate structures of the iris.
Re-Print – Fingerprint Changing Product
Re-Print is a fingerprint changing device that uses nano-scarring and laser technology to add on and remove the ridges on the finger to update our prints.
