M2 PHARMA-May 11, 2017-Ram Group announces breakthrough in creating world's first full-body biometric authentication technology


Singaporean sensor technology firm RAM Group stated on Wednesday that it has achieved world's first full-body biometric authentication based on a novel quantum-state sensor that exploits quantum mechanical properties.

The company said the new sensors are based on its newly created revolutionary new smart semiconductor material. Its next generation sensor technology company is focused on molecular engineering of smart materials that 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.

According to the company, the Full Body Authentication (FBA) sensor will revolutionize the consumer experience of authenticating mobiles, banking transactions, monitoring supply chains and other transactions across the digital economy. The 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.

In addition, the company's novel form of biometric authentication is unique in that it not only identifies the individual, but can identify different cognitive states. It can determine if the user is awake or asleep, focused or unfocused, and detect stress or anxiety levels. This is a completely new paradigm for authentication.

RAM Group also said that it has met several challenges with a more innovative and secure approach to authentication based on a unique digital signature from the electromagnetic signals in the body, or the BIO KEY created from the signals that the new sensor can detect from any contact point on the body.

Additionally, the company's sensor offers additional features that will enable its wider adoption in the mobile industry in that they are ultra-low-power sensors that consume far less energy and have lower processing requirements than fingerprint or facial recognition authentication technologies.
