Trinamix said its facial authentication technology is optimized for new Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile processors.
Speaking at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit 2022 event in Maui (oh, we wish we were there), Trinamix showed a demo with the technology built into a smartphone reference design from Qualcomm.
Trinamix, based in Ludwigshafen, Germany, is trying to set a gold standard for biometric authentication on Android devices. It has certified security from the FIDO Alliance, Android Biometric Security and IIFAA for mobile payments. It also has a highly secure authentication solution that works within the Qualcomm Trusted Execution Environment.
Trinamix showed a demo of rear OLED facial authentication running on the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Reference Design – a processor platform that can be used across devices.
The optimized solution runs completely invisibly behind the OLED display of the device, while also set to the highest
biometric security standards for future smartphones. The solution combines simple and fast unlocking with
maximum data protection and also enables a full screen viewing experience for users.
The integration of Trinamix Face Authentication in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 reference design in this
demonstration brings together two complementary technologies, both aimed at maximum data
These include an authentication solution with a new liveness check to protect users against advanced fraud attempts and the Qualcomm Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) for secure
collection and processing of the user’s biometric data.
“Providing the highest level of data security is important for the entire mobile ecosystem,” said Asaf Shen, senior
director of product management at Qualcomm. “At Qualcomm Technologies, we have
have made data security an integral part of our mobile platform – making our work with Trinamix essential. The certified security of trinamiX Face Authentication is a perfect complement to our technology.”
Trinamix Face Authentication is certified according to the International Internet Finance Authentication
Alliance (IIFAA), FIDO Alliance and Android in 2021.
It has been approved for use in mobile payment applications and on Android devices, setting the new gold standard for biometric authentication on Android phones.
The potential of the authentication solution is rooted in the underlying system design and algorithms,
which are developed and patented by Trinamix. The algorithms perform a liveness check
about human skin detection – adding a new security feature to general user recognition and detection.
Running all the software components in the Qualcomm TEE collects the biometric data during the
authentication process is protected against access by third parties and against manipulation during the
Trinamix now presents its fully integrated solution.
“We are very excited to be part of the Snapdragon Summit 2022 – an event that points the way to the future of mobile technologies,” said Wilfried Hermes, director of consumer electronics at Trinamix.
During the event, the company demonstrated smartphones that better protect user privacy without compromising on convenience and design.
“In recent years, our smartphones have become our wallets and the keepers of our most precious memories,” said Hermes. we are now
improving the protection all smartphone users deserve.”
During the development process, Trinamix placed as much emphasis on safety as on usability. While
full screen displays are a huge problem for previous generation facial authentication solutions. Trinamix has solved this challenge and managed to achieve the highest possible security certifications with the required hardware mounted invisibly behind the screen.
“By integrating trinamiX Face Authentication, smartphone manufacturers can finally unlock a new screen
design options without perforations or notches,” said Ingmar Bruder, CEO of Trinamix, in a statement.
“Future smartphones will not only fully protect your data, but also provide users with the convenience of
facial verification with an uninterrupted viewing experience.”
The company employs more than 200 people worldwide and holds more than 370 patents and patent applications.
