On the heels of releasing Clearview Consent a few months ago, the team is excited to continue to enhance our developer API with the launch of Presentation Attack Detection technology ("PAD”), also known as “liveness detection.”
The Biometrics Institute Annual Industry Survey (July 2022) reports, “86% agreed that liveness detection in biometrics systems is now more important than ever before." 
As identity verification and authentication workflows using facial recognition continue to grow across commercial applications, fraudsters remain tireless in their efforts to attempt to impersonate individuals and defeat the verification and identification process through the use of “presentation attacks” such as spoofing.
In furtherance of our shared goal with government and commercial entities to detect, thwart and prevent fraud, PAD addresses fraudsters showing paper printouts of a person, video replays of a person they want to impersonate, or high-fidelity masks. Unlike other providers, Clearview Consent’s PAD works effectively from a 2D image and without a 3D camera, and also works without active user interaction. Clearview Consent and the PAD features will help detect and interrupt threats for a variety of Know Your Customer (“KYC”) applications, including user authentication and identity proofing.
