Opening Up The World With A Single Identity

Application of Biometrics and Digital ID

Application of Biometrics and Digital ID

Biometrics lets you build your base of users with confidence. Each account holder has one face, and the biometric formula derived from that face will be recognized if the user tries to open another account under a different email login name and email address.

Some states use the same technology to prevent identity fraud when evaluating new driver's licenses and social service benefits requests.

Award-winning NEC biometrics algorithms and the NEC platform are far more dependable than typical device-based systems, which can be circumvented. If a user loses their phone, re-establishing secure accounts on the new device is faster with NEC biometric verification.

How It Works

NEC's Identity Services Integrate with Your App, Where the User Sets Up Their Digital Token.

The user can use several travel apps but has only one profile for each, based on the unique Digital Token.

Authenticating the biometric Digital Token stored on each user's phone with the encryption key on the NEC Digital Platform means they are protected even if your database is breached. Hackers cannot make fraudulent transactions.

The Digital Token is stored on their phone, not your centralized server, so it cannot be stolen in a data breach.

Once a Digital Token is established via an app, the exact unique Digital Token is used for all apps enabled by NEC identity services.
