Persay & YeSpeech to Build Verification System Using Multi-Factor Authentication
TEL AVIV, Israel - Persay Ltd. will participate in a project with Korean-based YeSpeech (formerly YesTechnology) to provide a multichannel, centralized speaker verification system.
The system proposed will be exposed as a Web service for authenticating phone, Internet, and mobile users performing transactions by introducing a double\triple layered authentication process employing biometric speaker verification technology. The solution will enable financial services, government agencies, healthcare organizations, home networking and distant learning application providers to authenticate users and protect themselves from financial fraud, identity theft and privacy breaches.
The centralized, multichannel voice authentication system will include the following four modes:
- Web user authentication using callback mechanism (out of band)
- Web user authentication using a local microphone (in band)
- Mobile user authentication using data channel (WIPI/BREW based)
- Mobile\landline user authentication using standard voice (telephony) channel
The solution proposed is based on Persay's VocalPassword and on a VoiceXML platform and will include tools and interfaces, enabling enterprises to utilize biometric speaker verification as a second authentication factor across all communication channels.
