Ant Financial Company gets ISO certification for biometric technology

Electronic Know Your Customer (e-KYC) technology provider and Ant Financial Company Zoloz has been certified as Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) Level 1 and Level 2 compliant in accordance with the ISO 30107-3 standards for its biometric technology.

The test was conducted by iBeta, an independent third-party quality assurance provider. The ISO 30107-3 is the most stringent international standard for biometric technologies, defining the basic principles for biometric security.

The tester simulated a malicious user who tried to spoof Zoloz’s biometric authentication system with photos, videos, and plastic masks. During the test, Zoloz’s technology achieved an attack presentation classification error rate (APCER) of 0%, demonstrating that its system cannot be infiltrated by any of the aforementioned attacks.
