says Yves Portalier, EVP of the Connected Objects
Business Unit.

“IDEMIA with their strong background in biometrics and secure
authentication has discovered the power of true 3D data very early.
Matching the 3D scan acquired by the REAL3
camera directly in 3D-space with the 3D reference library improves
security and relaxes the demand for high sensor resolutions or multiple
sensors.This is a big step forward compared to conventional 2D-matching
using additional 3D data for liveness-detection and anti-spoofing only”,
says Philipp von Schierstaedt, Vice President and responsible for RF &
Sensors business in Infineon Technologies.


IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, provides a trusted
environment enabling citizens and consumers alike to perform their daily
critical activities (such as pay, connect, travel and vote), in the
