- Adds Biometrics to Mobile Apps
- Behaviometrics through Typing or Swiping
- Server or Device Matching
Mobile handsets are designed to deliver performance on restricted hardware. Since a ‘built-in security’ is not commonly found on traditional computers and with mobility it is much more likely to end up in the wrong hands.
Multilayered security in a handheld device
- Increases the security in mobile applications from unauthorized usage.
- Low cost solution due to the fact that no special hardware or tokens are required.
- Easy to integrate into an existing mobile application.
Adding smart card readers or expecting users to carry One Time Password (OTP) tokens is not realistic. Out-of-band solutions via SMS etc., are cumbersome and not user friendly.
People choose weak passwords that are easy to remember or simply easy to type on a handset while Voice Biometric solutions are expensive and disrupt the user’s experience.
Multilayered security can be achieved by combining the three pillars: something you have (i.e., the phone as a token), something you know (like your PIN), and something you are which is your physical or behavioral metrics.
The solution to the mobile security problem
BehavioSec supplies authentication and verification through Behaviometrics (behavioral biometrics). ‘BehavioMobile Security’ is a solution to monitor and analyze behaviour based on the interactions with a mobile device to create complete trustworthy communications.
How does it work?
Each person has his or her own unique behavior when interacting with a mobile device’s keyboard and user interface. Without affecting the normal workflow, BehavioMobile Security verifies that it is the correct person handling the phone by monitoring the user’s Behaviometrics. BehavioMobile Security collects behavioral statistics of the normal usage pattern (for example, while entering or swiping a PIN-code) and compares this with previous usage to decide if the user is authentic.
Using BehavioMobile Security
Using our Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) is easy and will allow your app to learn the user’s behaviometrics. Within a short time, BehavioMobile Security will become accustomed to the user and will present the similarity (or risk value) to the collected behavior in each login or transaction event. This information can be used with existing solutions for authentication, risk assessment and signal for anomalies in user behavior for a step-up verification event.
