Biometrics and Cybersecurity: The Idiap Research Institute as a Key Player
For many years, the Idiap Research Institute has actively participated in numerous national and international research projects in the field of biometric cybersecurity and received total funding amounts of several tens of millions of Swiss francs.
EAB RESEARCH PROJECTS CONFERENCE (EAB-RPC) 2016
Biometrics and Identity Management are key research topics that are currently investigated in a number EU-projects running under the seventh Framework program and the new Horizon 2020. International research is dealing with innovative solutions for secure and privacy compliant biometrics and federated identity management.
The BEAT platform goes Open Source
After 4 years of development, the BEAT platform is now available for download as an open-source project, under the Affero GNU GPL version 3.
New patent on vein anti-spoofing (PAD)
Idiap published on Feb 18 2016 a PCT patent on biometric vein anti-spoofing (also called presentation attack detection) under the reference WO/2016/023582.
Your complete ID on your wrist thanks to BIOWATCH, Idiap and CSEM
CSEM at Neuchâtel and the Idiap Research Institute in Martigny are joining forces to propel the young and promising Swiss startup BIOWATCH to the top
License agreement signed between Idiap & EC’s Joint Research Center to experiment BEAT platform.
The BEAT platform is an European computing e-infrastructure for Open Science proposing a solution for open access, scientific information sharing and re-use including data and source code while protecting privacy and confidentiality. It allows easy online access to experimentation and testing in computational science. The platform also provides an attestation mechanism for your reports (scientific papers, technical documents or certifications).
