Ram Group Announces Full-Body Biometric Authentication Technology



RAM Group, Singaporean based technology firm, announced a biometric authentication based on a quantum-state sensor that exploits quantum mechanical properties to perform biometric authentication. The sensors are based on a smart semiconductor material created by Ram Group and its partners. This Full Body Authentication (FBA) sensor will have widespread applications across finance, entertainment, transportation, supply chains and security.

Ram Group is a sensor technology company focused on molecular engineering of smart materials. It is one of the first to develop quantum cryptography based sensors with the ability to improve authentication and user experiences across the entire spectrum of transactions in the digital economy.

The current standard for authentication of users and devices is largely built on fingerprint-based authentication or facial recognition/iris scans that most consumers are familiar with on smartphones. Fingerprint-based authentication will not work if users are wearing gloves and iris recognition technologies do have safety risks due to the light exposure to the eye. These approaches are also less attractive from a cost perspective than the technology developed by Ram Group.

This form of biometric authentication not only identifies the individual, but can identify different cognitive states. In other words, it can determine if the user is awake or asleep, focused or unfocused, and detect stress or anxiety levels. This is a new paradigm for authentication. In addition to security, this could have widespread impact for public safety in areas such as shipping and trucking, public transportation, and policing.

Ram Group has responded to these challenges with authentication based on a digital signature from the electromagnetic signals in the body, or the BIO KEY created from the signals that the sensor can detect from any contact point on the body.
