Signature Authentication Helps Verify Customers, Fights Identity Theft

LOS ANGELES -- Using a unique algorithm, Signishell captures detailed measurements of a signer’s rhythm, speed, pressure and acceleration when creating a signature in order to authenticate the signature for future comparisons.

The SigniShell was developed as an advanced solution for collecting signatures and authenticating identity, approaching signatures as unique personal identifiers. Unlike many signature-verification systems, the SigniShell relies on more than just the “look” of the signature.

The SigniShell captures and calculates the pressure, acceleration, speed and rhythm used in the act of signing to create a distinctive personal profile for each signee. Upon capture, signatures are profiled, encrypted and compressed, and then stored in a database system, smart card or token device.

The SigniShell technology learns the variations in an individual’s signature to accurately recognize a user’s authentic signature despite slight variations, while also allowing for the recognition of forgeries despite superficial similarities. SigniShell is a solution for access control, client identification, document workflows and the security of electronic transactions.
