Authenticating remote students with voice biometrics

Zack Martin   ||   Nov 18, 2013  ||   ,

Authentify is rolling out a solution that would verify the identity of remote students using voice biometrics. U.S. education institutions are expanding their remote learning programs nationwide but grappling with federal mandates to prove online students are actually taking courses and tests.

The product provides an end-to-end voice biometrics and mobile phone-based identity verification service customized for educational institutions’ remote learning programs. xFA replaces passwords with a mobile xFA app that scans an on-screen, short-lived cryptograph–a digital image – that activates a public key infrastructure digital certificate for strong authentication and turns a smart phone into a authenticator.

Authentify Educational Services include voice biometric client applications for mobile phones, a secure out-of-band network connection and an identity verification and authentication service that is easily integrated into any distance learning program.

Authentify is demonstrating the new services for at the Sloan Consortium International Conference on Online Learning, Nov. 20-22 in Orlando, Fla.
