• Currently, we can be identified by our fingers, eyes and face, but that’s just scratching the surface (literally). Companies are experimenting with every trait you can imagine, from heart rate to gait (yes, how you walk), blood and eye vessels to the shape of your earlobes, keystroke speed and style to personal aroma – talk about invasive!
  • We’re even improving centuries-old fingerprint identification. By creating a 3D image of a fingerprint, you can better analyze and compare all of its minutiae. It’s so much more accurate than our 2D scans and ink prints – and it’ll be in use more and more in the next few years.
  • We’re also bounding into multimodal biometrics, surpassing single factor authentication. Instead of using one biometric marker, we’ll use multiple, which is harder to fake and will substantially reduce the possibility of fraud. This can include the incorporation of access tokens via personal devices (which already use facial, fingerprint and iris scanning capabilities).
