Two former employees of Leap Motion believe that they have solved the ever-recurring problem of passwords and identity management.

Under the designation Redrock Biometrics the technology of the company war against the global legions of identification cards, PIN numbers, passwords and speech identification technologies with a combination of standard products hardware and proprietary software for the identification of palm prints Verification of user identity.

The chairman of Redrock Biometrics, Lenny Kontsevich, said the company sees broad applications in the authentication of payments in virtual worlds, physical security and cash withdrawals among other transactions.

"One can think about the palm as a very large fingerprint," says Kontsevich. "It has a rich structure and can be captured by any camera without contact."

After Kontsevich with the startup Kaching! the graduate of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology went to the lab to find the appropriate software algorithms between handprints and their unique signatures, which would be the basis for Redrock biometrics.

The theme for Kontsevich was to capture the images and process them from a background. There came Hua Yang, Kontsevich's Leap Motion colleague.

The two fled from Leap Motion in 2015 and founded Redrock Biometrics on the basis of Kontsevich's work and Hua Yang's background in machine learning and visualization.

"There is no other commercial hand biometrics that works with an RGB camera," Kontsevich told me.

The Redrock technology converts a Palm image into a unique signature and authenticates the user according to the CPU speed according to a statement in 10 to 100 milliseconds. The technology uses machine vision techniques to recognize a palm in a video stream and to pass its descriptor for registration or verification according to a statement.

The technology runs either on a client or on a server and corresponds to a verification request against a registry template with proprietary algorithms that have been tested on thousands of palm trees.

Konsevich says the Palmscanner technology he developed does not need any special equipment to position the palm biometrics against fingerprint or iris scanners. And it's far more secure than scans like the facial scanner technology, which is currently the rage thanks to Apple's new iPhones.

In social media, there are thousands of images of human faces that can be used to fake a facial scan, says Konsevich. "A palm tree is much harder to get in this respect, people do not take photos of their palm in good resolution."

Most of the company's competitors come from research products from the university that have not developed a fully integrated product, but a company that has managed to bring something to the market was Fujitsu,

"The beauty of our approach [is] is safe and works on all devices with a camera," says Konsevich. "It offers a wide range of applications that can begin with online banking, banking, or cash machines."

The company also claims that its biometric identification technology is "enrollment-portable", with authentication technologies for logging into Windows, Android, iOS, Mac OS and Linux as well as stand-alone client server technologies.

Any device with an RGB or infrared camera and a central unit can use the technology.

Beyond the prejudices and portability that allows Redrocks biometric scanning technology, the company also differs in that it shows, according to Konsevich, intention and not presence.

"A face shows your presence, a palm shows your intention," says Konsevich.

The company, whose software is publicly available today, was operated under the program Wells Fargo Accelerator .

"We are a partner in the early stages," says Bipin Sahni, Head of Innovation and R & D, Innovation Group Wells Fargo.

Sahni says the biggest advantage of the accelerator is the validation that he gives to other potential bank customers. That is, the accelerator has achieved some remarkable successes. It is the portfolio EyeVerify has been brought to Ant Financial and Zowego is a company that has seen exceptional growth, Sahni says.

"We're not doing this to make 10x, 20x or 40x," says Sahni. "This is a" return-on-innovation "point of view, some of which will become very large enterprise service providers, helping them to work in our environment and helping them mature as a company."
