  • Patent number: 10769635
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for performing eye tracking during authentication. For example, one embodiment of a method comprises: receiving a request to authenticate a user; presenting one or more screen layouts to the user; capturing a sequence of images which include the user's eyes as the one or more screen layouts are displayed; and (a) performing eye movement detection across the sequence of images to identify a correlation between motion of the user's eyes as the one or more screen layouts are presented and an expected motion of the user's eyes as the one or more screen layouts are presented and/or (b) measuring the eye's pupil size to identify a correlation between the effective light intensity of the screen and its effect on the user's eye pupil size; capturing audio of the user's voice; and performing voice recognition techniques to determine a correlation between the captured audio of the user's voice and one or more voice prints.

  • Publication number: 20200280550
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine-readable medium are described for endorsing authenticators. For example, one embodiment of an apparatus comprises: a first instance of an authenticator associated with a first app to allow a user of the first app to authenticate with a first relying party; a secure key store accessible by the first instance of the authenticator to securely store authentication data related to the first app; and a synchronization processor to share at least a portion of the authentication data with a second instance of the authenticator associated with a second app to be executed on the apparatus.

  • Patent number: 10706132
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for adaptive authentication. For example, one embodiment of an apparatus comprises: an adaptive authentication module to receive a client request to perform a transaction which requires authentication; a risk engine to analyze first data related to a client to determine a risk value associated with the client; an assurance level gain analysis module to determine an assurance level required for allowing the client to complete the transaction and to determine an assurance level gain required to arrive at the assurance level based on the risk value; the adaptive authentication module to select one or more authentication techniques based at least in part on the indication of the assurance level gain.

  • Patent number: 10637853
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, method, and machine readable medium are described for attesting an authenticator. For example, one embodiment of an apparatus comprises: a processor to execute an app; and an authenticator to generate a first authentication key and to securely store the first authentication key, the authenticator to generate an attestation object usable by a relying party to confirm authenticity of the authenticator, the attestation object including a first component provided by the authenticator, a second component provided by the app, and a signature generated by the first authentication key over a combination of the first and second components.
