Passfaces is a breakthrough, patented technology that uses
the brain's natural power to recognize familiar faces.
Passfaces authentication is based on a graphical password
that provides bidirectional, interactive authentication. It
both the site to the user and the user to the site.
Passfaces protects users from fraud and identity theft
related to e-commerce, social networking, and online
Passfaces Web Access is an application developer's kit that
provides developers and system integrators everything they
need to add Passfaces to customer applications. It includes
a Software Developers Kit (SDK) with
Server-side Java Class Package,
Passfaces Library (database of faces), and the User
Interface (client). It includes end user licenses based on
the number of active online users.
Passfaces Web Access client and help section are
customizable. Both can be easily customized to include
the company's logo as well as the look and feel of the
Passfaces authentication is used to augment or even replace the
existing user passwords in Web applications. It both
simplifies the end user authentication experience and
significantly increases security. Passfaces allows the
administrator to chose the required number of faces for
logon, allowing for additional security as needed. Passfaces dramatically
reduces password help-desk calls and the need for password
policy and reset procedures.
Custom User Interface
Passfaces Web Access includes a customizable user interface
for the Web
client. Easily add your company logo, change
background colors, and customize the text.

Although Passfaces can run on dedicated hardware, it is
designed to run on existing Windows and UNIX-based security
systems so that no additional hardware is required. The
reference implementation is a simple JSP application that
will run on Java servlet-capable application servers. The
Passfaces Library is a database of serialized .JPG files
from which you assign a user's Passface authentication set.
The User Interface, or Passfaces Client, comprises a highly
applet that represent the core of the Passfaces system.
Face Database The standard Passfaces
Image Library contains 135 face images; additional sets of
face images are added to the Library every year. These
images are in JPEG format and have unique filenames that are
used to identify the face image. Custom Image Libraries are
