Inherence for Strong Customer Authentication

BioCatch analyzes behavioral, device, and network attributes to conduct One-Time-Passcode (OTP) profiling and offers a layer of entry of familiar information to protect the Strong Customer Authentication flow under PSD2.

1. Historical Profile Analysis: Keystroke Dynamics Analysis on One Time Passcode with Device and Network data

  • Analyze physical and cognitive behaviors
  • Device and Network analysis
  • Identify anomalies and criminal behavior patterns

2. Layering Data for Enhanced Analysis

  • Perform Age Analysis to determine user’s genuine age
  • Connect to existing user behavior profiles from BioCatch solutions, such as Account Takeover Protection, expediting user profile creation
  • Cross-customer device network to leverage existing known fraud indicators

3. Enhance Confidence in Legitimate Users with Long-Term Memory field

  • Strengthens proof of inherence by evaluating muscle memory, typing off a list, hesitation, and more

Secure New Users

By adding a long-term memory field for new users with no pre-existing profiles, BioCatch can determine whether the behavior displayed belongs to a genuine user or cybercriminal by identifying patterns of knowledge with data, use of remote access tools, and other patterns correlating with “good” or “bad” resulting in lower false rejections and enhanced detection. Once profiles are created, this field can be removed to enhance customer experience.
