FinDEVr Live: Crysp Offers APIs that Authenticate Users with Context


CryspLogoCrysp helps leverage sensors built into mobile devices to invisibly authenticate users. Crysp provides APIs that enable real-time verification of users’ context and how they enter their credentials, such as their touch pressure and size, typing rhythm, swipe velocity, etc. Developers of mobile applications can use Crysp APIs to strengthen or replace passwords in their authentication flow, as well as to streamline the process for account recovery.

Smart authentication for mobile banking and payments
The presentation will describe ways to leverage sensors in mobile devices to authenticate users and detect fraud. It will outline practical solutions to increase the security of existing passwords and PINs, simplify the password reset process and eventually eliminate passwords. The presentation will include demos, case studies and a step-by-step tutorial for integrating Crysp SDKs with mobile apps.

Key takeaways:

  • How sensors built into mobile devices can be used to improve security
  • Which options will reduce reliance on passwords and eventually eliminate them
  • How existing account-recovery methods can be improved
