NXT-ID Patents Behavior-Directed Payments
NXT-ID, Inc. (NXTD, NXTDW), a biometric authentication company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, announced today that it has filed provisional patent 62/188684 for BEHAVIORAL-DIRECTED AUTHENTIATION METHOD AND SYSTEM.
NXT-ID achieves another new convenient and secure method to make payments. With this patent, NXT-ID further expands new, innovative payment methods, introduced with its groundbreaking voice-direct payment patent application, with behavior-directed payments by introducing a new class of authentication called “behavior-metrics”.
This new technology recognizes both the individual (something you are) and the action (something you know). Behavior-metrics may include, facial expressions, gesture movements, patterns drawn, or even PINs – virtually any motion, sound, or other behavior that can be detected by sensors and combine physiological features unique to a person, such as biometrics, with some unique action, such as behavior, that can be chosen by a user.
“Convenience is just as important as security”, adds Mr. Tunnell. “Another key advantage of behavior-metrics is that they enable accessibility. Like directing payment by simply asking for a word that is associated with an account, users may simply perform a gesture or draw a pattern without having to view a display, enabling a method to pay for those with disabilities such as impaired vision.”
