Biometric security is becoming increasingly familiar, with fingerprints and facial measurements used to unlock doors and devices not only in secure facilities, but in everyday life.
Prince Edward Island-based and Emergence client Stepscan Technologies has developed a new technique for contactless security, believed to be the world’s first solution based on analyzing an individual’s footsteps using high-resolution, pressure-sensitive flooring. They turned to CyberNB as a cybersecurity expert to capitalize on this new technique. UNB’s research experts joined CyberNB and Stepscan to build on this success and test, validate and improve their solution. Thanks to CyberNB and Fredericton’s Knowledge Park, the platform will be installed and tested in the city’s new, state-of-the-art Cyber Centre to provide real-world evaluation.
