Behavioral biometrics, which can persistently authenticate a user utilizing existing mobile sensors, will help eliminate passwords. As the vast majority of smartphones already have the sensors required for multifactor identity the need for specialized hardware for authentication is reduced. Tim will present the technological foundation that enables multifactor identity, discuss current use cases, the applicability to 3D Secure V2, and discuss why Mercator expects this approach to establishing authentication will irrevocably alter the security landscape and enable entirely new players to enter the market.

  • How should institutions leverage behavioral biometrics right now?

  • How will the new authentication value chain impact your institution?

  • What is the impact of this technology on deployment of traditional biometric authentication solutions?

  • How to implement behavioral biometrics to protect online assets and also enable a smooth transition?

  • What is the impact on current and future investments in authentication technology? 

  • How will the transition affect operational systems and customer interactions across all channels? Which channels first?
