Decentralized Biometrics Cloud

Unleash the potential of biometrics with our privacy-by-design framework.

Privacy regulations are driving new frameworks for identity management.  Anonybit keeps you ahead with a decentralized identity breakthrough innovation that enables the decentralized processing of biometric data. This means that for the first time, you can safely store biometrics captured during account opening and use them in any downstream application without the worry of a data breach.

How decentralized biometrics works

We take care of the privacy and security aspects of your biometric implementation; you take care of designing a superb user experience and customized decentralized identity solution that meets your customers' needs.


For enrollment, ingest the biometric from any capture source including IDV, live capture, document scan import and more

Convert biometric into sharded, anonymized bits (“anonybits”)

Distribute the “anonybits” throughout the multi-party cloud environment for storage, where they are kept and never retrieved or reassembled, even for matching


For matching, capture biometric and conduct liveness checks

Convert the biometric into sharded, anonymized bits as before

Compare the new anonybits against their stored counterparts, consolidate the computations and return a matching score in milliseconds

Delivering on the promise of biometrics without compromising on privacy or security.

No single point of failure

The storage and computation (matching) functions are distributed across a multi-party cloud environment such that no party has access or knowledge of the data held by another party at any time. Each component of the decentralized identity  system is encrypted with its own cryptographic key, which is not accessible by any administrator, even insider threats.

The biometric sample is never reassembled, even for matching

Upon capture, Anonybit breaks up the biometric data into anonymized bits that are distributed throughout a network of decentralized nodes. The original biometric image is discarded and the anonymized bits are never reassembled, even for matching. Working across devices and applications, Anonybit maintains true decentralized identity, by returning an authentication response without any of the original biometric data components.

Support for multiple modalities

Anonybit’s decentralized biometrics cloud supports third party algorithms for decentralized 1:1 matching and decentralized 1:N lookups for multiple biometric modalities, including face, voice, fingerprint and iris.

Cloud agnostic

Anonybit’s decentralized biometrics cloud underpins the Genie and can be deployed in any cloud environment across multiple parties.

Exceeds requirements under GDPR and other data protection laws

Implementing Anonybit’s decentralized biometrics system allows for a transparent, consent-based biometric solution that minimizes data collection, allows control of data localization, and provides strongly-protected storage and management of data necessary for your identity management processes.

Third-party algorithm support

Secure storage of biometric data has been named the number one inhibitor to biometrics wide adoption. Our Decentralized Biometrics Cloud gets past the problem to unleash the potential of biometrics to prevent fraud, streamline the user experience and secure access to accounts and assets. Here are just a few of the algorithms that we currently support.
