Fun fact: Short of your DNA, your eyes' irises are your most unique feature, differentiating you from everybody else far better than your fingerprints can. EyeLock scanners examine 240 points in an iris (compared to 20 on a fingerprint). Their technology has been used for security clearance applications for years, is now featured on a PC, and was being demonstrated in the visor of the Oak Ridge National Labs Cobra concept. At least one manufacturer is planning to incorporate EyeLock as an ignition lock, to identify frequent users and automatically tailor the user experience (seats, mirrors, infotainment preferences, etc.) to the user. Usage-based insurers like Progressive are also interested in knowing which family members are driving at what times. Lending your car to friends would be trickier, requiring authenticating their eyes to the car, but a valet mode with greatly reduced vehicle functionality, limited speed, etc. would negate the need to do that. The system can see through glasses and colored contacts, not counting spooky Halloween ones that obscure the iris.

Iris authentication leader expands and strengthens executive management team with appointment of information warfare and cyber security veteran.

EyeLock, Inc., a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, today announced that it has appointed Chris Ream to the new role of Chief Security Officer.  Ream will be responsible for overseeing physical and information security efforts for EyeLock.

When it comes to unlocking your computer, your smartphone or even your car, your eyeball may soon replace your fingerprint, your password and dedicated buttons.

At the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, I met with representatives of EyeLock, which has developed an authentication system that scans users’ irises. Using eye features to identify individuals has long been a staple of science fiction — “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” or “Minority Report,” anyone? — and such systems have been previously been used in corporate environments to guard access to buildings and rooms. EyeLock is hoping they will soon be used by consumers to protect their devices and things.

In partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, EyeLock’s technology showcases the future of automotive experiences

Detroit, Michigan, Jan. 13, 2015 – Technology Showcase, Hall E - EyeLock Inc., a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, today announced it will showcase its EyeLock ID technology integrated in a 3D printed automobile designed and developed by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) at the 2015 North America International Auto Show. EyeLock’s iris identity authentication technology is being used to validate the driver and authorize the start of the vehicle.

2014 was the year of the hacker, and a number of companies at CES 2015 want to replace your highly insecure passwords with something much more difficult to steal: your biometrics. Bloomberg's Sam Grobart takes a hands-on look at a few products that analyze biological signals and images to positively identify you. In other words, the password of the future is you.

Myris is a gadget that comes from EyeLock Inc, and it promises to make keeping passwords and info as easy as the blink of an eye. The gadget combines a biometric scanner and a password manager, and also allows you to store passwords through an app. You essentially look into Myris so it can memorize your identity based on your irises. The device enters log in information for you automatically once it confirms that your eyes match up to the ones stored in the gadget. Without having to memorize long and challenging passwords, Myris actually allows you to make more difficult log in credentials, which keeps you safer.

Forget the ATM card. A company is currently testing ATMs that allow customers to withdraw cash by simply scanning their irises.

Diebold, based in North Canton, Ohio, is behind the iris-scanning biometric technology. The company has teamed up with Citigroup, though the bank doesn't have immediate plans to bring the technology to market yet. Some consumers who are testing these ATMs said they are wary of the new technology.
