Protect Privacy and Anonymity from Facial Recognition Misuse
Secure Face Authentication
The D-ID de-identification system protects biometric databases while still enabling one-to-one authentication – all leveraging the same core technology. Compatible with any facial recognition engine, D-ID++ allows for reliable face authentication without compromising privacy or using actual sensitive biometric data.
D-ID++ keeps stolen or leaked facial images protected at all times – lowering risk to privacy since identities cannot be matched to a protected photo
Offered as an upgrade, D-ID++ is ideal for finance, government, access control, devices and more
Implementing D-ID++ enhances compliance with GDPR and other privacy regulations since no Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is stored on the facail images
How It Works
Rather than enrolling an original identifiable photo, D-ID creates and stores an image or representation together with unique encrypted instructions. When authentication is required, facial matching is performed between the stored protected image/representation and the newly-captured image. Authentication is confirmed when both de-identified templates match.
D-ID de-identification instructions serve as a one-way hash function with no backdoor. Thus, reverting to the original image is impossible. Even if a device is stolen or an unauthorized user accesses the biometric database containing these instructions, de-identified photos remain fully protected by the one-way function.
