The last day Google I / O 2016 left a little surprise that we had escaped but that can change one of the most assimilated to date in mobile usage behavior, the identification system and unlock . When the track was finally emerging as the fastest dissemination system through all kinds of terminals, a despite its weaknesses, Mountain View and have a faster and agile system, while automatic.
Your project Project Abacus has evolved into something tangible called Trust Score , an identification system for accumulation of different biometric, behavioral and position. And developers will be able to implement same 2016 thanks to the API Trust .
What was Abacus Project
The basic concept has not changed. Abacus Project base is maintained as we presented a year ago Anna Martí in Xataka Mobile :
“The idea is to collect user information regarding their behavior: habits of movement, speed typing, which apps used more as well as resources such as biometric authentication voice or facial recognition when the terminal allows. the combination of all this information is to allow the system to build a safer system user iD and discern whether or not the owner. “
Trust score monitors in the background
However, Google have already found what to do with all that data. Trust Score is a scoring system constructed from these parameters that allows the operating system in general or to any specific application check whether the user has the phone in their hands is really the owner or someone authorized. In that case it gives access and permissions without entering any other passwords. He picks up through sensors constantly smartphone to operate in the background.
One of the difference between Trust Score and other systems of release in two steps or using behavior patterns, such as the old Smart Look Android 5.0 Lollipop is the agility offered by the score. By measuring many parameters, the new procedure allows you to set the developer how many points should mark a user to access that app , so that access to banking can be more demanding than a music player but everything is created from the same API.
if you do not reach the minimum value measurements labeled voice, visual scanner, keyboard behavior, position, etc., the application or the operating system will ask for a traditional mechanism release.
Trust API in 2016
on dates, Google said that financial institutions will be the first to access this technology , from this month of June. The other developers will have to wait until later this year to begin studying the values of Trust Score and apply it to their creations.
Again, agility and security in the use of mobile devices paid with increasingly intimate and unique personal data. In this case, giving Google and its developer community full control of our movements in a who’s who in which they always have to win so that everything functions properly.
The news Google presents Trust Score, autounlock multipattern Android was originally published in Engadget Android by Sergio Figueroa .
