Face Matching is a technology that compares two facial portraits and analyses them for similarities. This involves a three step process. First is facial detection, where the software identifies a face in an image. The second step is the conversion of that facial image into digital information (the geometry of the face, spacing of the eyes, ears, nose, etc.). Finally, this information is compared to a second, reference photo and assessed for a match. There are 4 types of portraits that can be compared:
Document printed portrait
RFID chip DG2 portrait
Portrait from an external camera (selfie from web or mobile device)
An external portrait from database
The algorithms used are highly accurate— images are normalized to reduce lighting and motion effects, and normal physiological changes, such as a hair cut or glasses, are accounted for. Technology is used for security checks at airports and public events, to validate identity documents, to prevent identity theft, and stop the fraudulent use of credit cards and other documents.
