PIDaaS (Private Identity as a Service) is a project co-funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme of the European Union as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) Call ICT PSP 7th call for proposals 2013. The project aims to create a secure authentication system, based on biometric recognition technologies (digital fingerprint scanner, voice and face recognition) through mobile devices. PIDaaS aims at exploiting traditional biometric technologies and platforms for identity management to create an innovative service: biometric data, as main factor to guarantee identity, will be paired with other metadata (relating to hardware, software and network) to better ensure the certainty of each authentication request. Moreover, PIDaaS also adds biometric template protection schemes (BTPS) to avoid the risks connected to other classical solution and to ensure irreversibility, revocability, as well as non connectability and renewability.
