    Identification From A Safe Distance Trends This Week In Biometrics News

    Jul 12, 2020






    Biometrics solutions for safe work and financial transactions continue to be launched, and increasingly rolled out, as the world plans for social and economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The top stories of the week on Biometric Update cover a range of modalities, but with a recurring theme of identification from a safe distance.

    Products applying body temperature screening, often with facial recognition, for access control continue to be launched. The new development this week is that deployments are showing early signs of catching up as previously locked-down businesses return to work in some countries. Tying these systems together in secure networks may be the next area for industry attention.

    A series of innovations related to running electronic systems on current from proximate terminals and integrating complex technologies in small contactless form-factors have set the stage for biometric retail payments, as Infineon executives explain to Biometric Update in an interview. Those payments will mostly be made with fingerprint-enabled cards, though complemented by wearables and mobile devices, they say.

    Services involving the digital capture of identity documents and biometric selfie verification continue to be deployed for compliance with KYC and other regulations, with professional and financial services and fantasy soccer among the latest to sign up as customers.

    Consumer surveys suggest the rise in biometrics for financial services is just beginning, and companies providing biometrics and other identity technologies are going to banks, and even directly to consumers to build anticipation. Whether with digital payments on mobile devices, or for reducing contact with shared surfaces for taking out cash, various modalities of biometrics are evidently in play for financial service providers.

    Details of Apple’s work towards under-display on future iPhones or other devices and on device-based digital identity is filtering out through patent filings. The latest suggest an optical fingerprint sensor and a possible way to implement it without causing burn-in.

    After leading Mastercard’s efforts on biometric payment cards, Bob Reany is moving over to subsidiary NuData to bring its behavioral biometrics to bear on more transactions and user experiences. Mastercard also shows up in Biometric Update’s most-read articles of the week for an integration of Trust Stamp biometric hash technology to boost the privacy protection of its Wellness Pass vaccine record solution. The solution will be put into use by vaccine alliance Gavi in West Africa.

    Leidos has won a major biometrics contract with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which could be worth close to a billion dollars. The deal includes hardware and software support, and while only one year is guaranteed, could last for five.

    John Wagner will retire from U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the end of next week, leaving behind him a legacy as “the CBP Executive who made business transformation and biometrics happen,” Identity Strategy Partners CEO Janice Kephart argues in an impassioned LinkedIn post.

    Global Entry, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, Automated Passport Control, Biometric Exit, agency work on tokenless entry for U.S. citizens and the expansion of biometrics to the TSA all bear his fingerprints, according to Kephart. Wagner discussed the successful positioning of the Biometric Entry/Exit program for continued roll-out in a recent interview with NextGov.

    Idemia has opened a major office in Japan with access secured by its MorphoWave Compac touchless fingerprint readers as part of its plan to expand its global workforce between now and 2023. The company already has a significant presence in the Japanese market, and the new head office in Tokyo’s Shibuya District will serve as a demonstration center for prospective clients.

    Problems with registrations for biometric voter rolls have plagued efforts in Somalia, Ghana, and Burkina Faso, though a pause in the latter country has ended. On the other side of Africa’s digital identity growth, Nigeria has been able to continue verifying the identity of pensioners in Lagos with biometrics by moving the process online, and to disburse aid to farmers through biometric credentials.

    Women in Identity has announced an initiative to create a ‘D&I Code of Conduct & Implementation Framework’ for the identity industry. With the shift to a position of more active engagement with businesses, the organization intends to give companies a toolkit for taking a more diverse and inclusive approach to developing identity products. Women in Identity is seeking further support of various kinds for the project.

    The United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism has launched a new webpage to provide a comprehensive resource for biometrics use and data sharing. Resources provided by the page include ‘The Security Council Addendum to the guiding principles on foreign terrorist fighter (2018)’ and the ‘United Nations Compendium of recommended practices for the responsible use and sharing of biometrics in counter-terrorism,’ co-developed with the Biometrics Institute.

    Looks like nothing is going to stop any of this.

    Too many lax people.

    I've come to accept that most people are basically soul-less automatons that just follow various groups they associate with (all of which are publicly led by club members) like lemmings off a cliff. There are some out there that still are worth trying to talk to but they're few and far between.

    The purpose of biometrics is to remove the last choice people have to not be identified as property. Recall what I've previously written about the ALL CAPS NAME on ID cards being used as the means to get living flesh and blood people to identify themselves as merely physical property/surety of the ALL CAPS NAME. The ALL CAPS NAME is property of the state...and further up the chain, the property of the bankers and ultimately the Vatican, via the Vatican's Cestui Que Trust legal system. Currently, with ID cards, people can refuse to identify themselves as property by refusing to present themselves as the physical surety of the NAME. Once people willingly link their physical bodily features to the ALL CAPS NAME and whatever their "global citizen number" is, their transformation into property is complete and unable to be reversed. This originated a long time ago when some Pope declared that everyone and everything on the planet belonged to the Papacy. The Trust system has been used ever since to fulfill that declaration, where everyone and everything is amassed as mere property under the global Trust legal system. Something something....take the mark....something something....removed from book of life...something something.

    Africa to Become Testing Ground for "Trust Stamp" Vaccine Record and Payment System (all of that author's writings are worth reading. dude is on the ball.)

    A new biometric identity platform partnered with the Gates-funded GAVI vaccine alliance and Mastercard will launch in West Africa and combine COVID-19 vaccinations, cashless payments, and potential law enforcement applications.

    Those poor Africans ain't gonna become Vatican trust property on their own, ya know.

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    Sadly nothing will be done to put a stop to this.
