Title (EN) A METHOD OF AUTOMATIC VERIFICATION OF PERSONAL IDENTITY
(FR) PROCEDE DE VERIFICATION AUTOMATIQUE D'IDENTITE PERSONNELLE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a method of automatic verification of personal identity comprising the automatic generation of cue-response pairs, and allocation of such cue-response pairs to authorised people, and subsequent verification of the identity of an applicant as an authorised person by presentation of the cues from one or more cue-response pairs previously allocated to the authorised person, and verification of the replies entered by the applicant by comparing them with the responses in the cue-response pairs. It is easier to remember an association between a cue and a response than it is to remember a password. A person can remember many cue-response associations, and this knowledge may be tested by presenting any of the cues and asking for the corresponding response. By this means, the present invention enhances the level of security of methods of automatic verification of personal identity.
(FR) Procédé de vérification automatique d'identité personnelle, consistant en la production automatique de paires d'indication-réponse, en l'attribution desdites paires d'indications-réponses à des personnes autorisées, et en la vérification ultérieure de l'identité d'un demandeur en tant que personne autorisée, par présentation des indications provenant d'une ou de plusieurs paires d'indications-réponses préalablement attribuées à la personne autorisée, et en la vérification des réponses introduites par le demandeur, par comparaison de celles-ci avec les réponses se trouvant dans les paires d'indications-réponses. Il est plus facile de se rappeler une association entre une indication et une réponse que de se rappeler un mot de passe. Une personne peut se rappeler plusieurs associations d'indications-réponses, et cette connaissance peut être testée par présentation de n'importe quelle indication et demande de la réponse correspondante. Grâce à ce moyen, l'invention améliore le niveau de sécurité de procédés de vérification automatique d'identité personnelle.
