BSI selected for student authentication solution

Biometric Signature ID (BSI) has announced that its signature gesture biometric technology, BioSig-ID, has been chosen by online distance education consortium EduKan to verify student identity via the Web.

The BioSig-ID solution was chosen by EduKan as a cost-conscious solution to the growing need for authentication of students guaranteeing they are who they claim to be when online participating in post-secondary classes.

The solution requires that a user create a password consisting of three or more letters, numbers, or symbols and draw these on the computer screen. The way a person draws this password is captured and broken down into basic elements including speed, direction, length, height, width, angle, and number of strokes. These elements are compared during subsequent sign-in attempts to determine whether the user is the same person who created the profile.

The solution from BSI was chosen by EduKan officials due to its ability to keep costs low, be accepted by faculty, staff and students during the trial period and working with standard computer hardware such as a mouse to make it accessible to all students enrolled with EduKan.
