Efficient biometric identification: Current trends, challenges, and research

Date: 2020-06-02 (12:30-13:30) Location: Webinar with BigBlueButton

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB)
Attendance is free of charge but registration is required. Registered participants will receive dial-in credentials in the morning of the event.
Speakers: Pawel Drozdowski, Hochschule Darmstadt
Program

Nowadays, biometrics find application as an integral component of identity management systems. The recent rapid growth of the size and popularity of such systems has prompted research into technologies which support efficient, secure, and accurate processing of large amounts of biometric data. This presentation will provide an introduction to said topics and challenges specifically associated with biometric identification (1:N search). Furthermore, examples of academic research will be presented and discussed in the context of applicability in real deployments of biometric systems.

Pawel Drozdowski is a researcher with the Faculty of Computer Science, Hochschule Darmstadt, Germany, where he works on research projects in the context of the National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE. His interests within biometrics include efficient algorithmic solutions for large-scale database searches, information fusion, privacy and template protection, as well as ethical aspects of such systems, especially concerning demographic bias and fairness. He co-authored more than 20 scientific publications in the field of biometrics and represents the German Institute for Standardization (DIN) in ISO/IEC SC37 JTC1 SC37 on biometrics.

Morphing Attack Detection – State of the Art and Challenges

Date: 2020-05-18 (12:30-13:30) Location: Webinar with BigBlueButton

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB)
Attendance is free of charge but registration is required. Registered participants will receive dial-in credentials in the morning of the event.
Speakers: Christoph Busch
Program

Widespread deployment of Automatic Border Control (ABC), along with electronic Machine Readable Travel Documents (eMRTD) for person verification, has enabled a prominent use case of face biometrics in border control applications. The trust anchor are biometric passports.

Many countries issue eMRTD passports on the basis of a printed biometric face photo submitted by the applicant, a procedure which allows the possibility of the photo being either altered to beautify the subject’s appearance or morphed to conceal his/her identity.

If an eMRTD passport is issued with a morphed facial image, two or more data subjects can then use it to pass a border control. This talk will present the state of the art of Morphing Attack Detection (MAD) and discuss the challenges associated with this research. Further the mid term research agenda will be indicated.

Registration: https://profitcard.berlin/anmeldung/

Logo of ProfitCard 2020The ProfitCard also looks at the latest trends in 2020, with the main topics on the agenda being mobile payment, electronic identity and payments in times of PSD2.

The electronic identification of customers is one of the decisive influencing factors for the further development of existing business models and the development of new ones in the future. The ProfitCard provides up-to-date information on projects already underway and offers a glimpse into the future.

Individual banks will report on the consequences that digitization will have for their respective business models, how customer relationships will change and what effects this will have on cost and revenue structures.

Since September 14, 2019, online payments must be secured with strong customer authentication – as stipulated by the European Payment Services Directive (PSD2). The postponement granted by the European banking regulator until the end of 2020 for some cases does not alter the fact that this will have an impact on the payment methods offered by online merchants and their use by customers.

The ProfitCard offers first-hand insider knowledge and excellent networking with decision-makers and designers in the industry.
