January 19, 2024

Product revision number: 20240119

The first release of Face Verification 13.3 SDK.

New features:

  • Added RemoteVerification function and tutorials which are used for local processing using the SDK with the verification done on the FaceVerification Web server.
  • Added DetectionConfidenceThreshold parameter to adjust face detection sensitivity.
  • Added AdvancedParameter parameter which will allow to test alpha features on request.

Fixes:

  • Web Service specific:
    • Fixed a bug, which causes fv-biostream-server to freeze and stop processing further requests.
  • Fixed a number of minor bugs and issues.

Updates and improvements:

  • SDK-specific:
    • Separated iOS Framework into iPhoneOS and iPhoneSimulator.
  • Web Service specific:
    • Endpoint separation between user and admin calls, while deprecating the old convention.
  • A number of minor quality of life improvements.

October 13, 2023

Product revision number: 20231013

The first release of Face Verification 13.2 SDK.

Algorithms-related changes:

  • Added background removal of ICAO token image with the possibility to change the color of the removed background.

New features:

  • Added a Single Image LIT enabling execution of ICAO and/or Liveness checks on a single image.
  • Added ICAO+Liveness check support to the ImportImage operation.
  • Added TokenFaceBackgroundPercentage parameter, which regulates the ratio of the face to the token image.
  • Added a new function, which allows to conveniently convert facial templates to QR code images.
  • SDK-specific:
    • Added Liveness Quality in the preview data which indicates the image quality during passive liveness.
  • Web Service specific:
    • Added support for GPU stream decoding.

Fixes:

  • Fixed liveness session management bug. The update introduces a new time and extraction logic, ensuring passive liveness checks complete even on low-end devices, while preventing spoofing attempts.
  • Resolved a minor frame selection issue during liveness checks. The updated algorithm now ensures the final image has open eyes and meets quality standards.
  • Fixed a bug where Check Liveness operation would not allow to capture ICAO without Liveness also enabled.
  • Web Service specific:
    • Fixed a bug where MatchingThreshold parameter would be ignored.
  • Fixed a number of minor bugs and issues.

Updates and improvements:

  • SDK-specific:
    • Deprecated StartCheckLiveness and Force functions, introducing StartChecks and StartOperationManually as replacements with identical functionality.
  • Web Service specific:
    • Incorporated a new timeout parameter in fv-ctl, with a default setting of 90 seconds, to efficiently manage service timeouts and avoid orphaned sessions.
    • keep-images now has 3 options (always/never/temporary(new default)) instead of 2 (true/false).
    • Changed the default value of FramesToSkip from 20 to 100 for a better user experience.
  • A number of minor quality of life improvements.

June 23, 2023

Product revision number: 20230623

Fixes:

  • Fixed IcaoWarningFilter error which would not allow to set certain combinations of warnings to ignore.

June 9, 2023

Product revision number: 20230609

The first release of Face Verification 13.1 SDK.

Algorithms-related changes:

  • Added age estimation.
  • Added new ICAO warnings with corresponding threhold setters/getters (Occlusion, Resolution, MotionBlur, CompressionArtifacts, Overexposure, Underexposure, Glasses, Hat).

New features:

  • The new ICAO warnings can only be accessed using the new IcaoWarningsExtended enum and corresponding functions (the old ones are deprecated and will be removed in the future).
  • Added basic tutorials for C, C#, Java and Android.

Fixes:

  • Fixed a number of minor bugs and issues.

Updates and improvements:

  • Average liveness score is now returned in the final result.
  • Check Liveness operation can now be used with only ICAO check enabled.
  • IcaoWarningFilter now only accepts positional ICAO warnings (via new enum).
  • Lots of minor quality of life updates.

April 11, 2023

Product revision number: 20230411

Fixes:

  • Fixed a number of minor bugs and issues.

February 2, 2023

Product revision number: 20230201

The first release of Face Verification 13.0 SDK.

Algorithms-related changes:

  • Face liveness check:
    • New presentation attack detection (PAD) algorithm, which has achieved Level 1 certification by iBeta laboratory in compliance with the requirements of the ISO/IEC 30107-3 standard.
    • New MoveBack action available.

New features:

  • PassiveLivenessSensitivityThreshold and PassiveLivenessQualityThreshold properties.
  • IcaoWarningFilter property, which specifies what warnings to ignore.
  • New statuses (MotionBlur, CompressionArtifacts, TooFar, TooClose).
  • JPEG 2000 token image getter from result.

Fixes:

  • Fixed a number of minor bugs and issues.

Updates and improvements:

  • Removed upper limit for the Matching Threshold.
  • Free ReextractTemplate and ReextractTemplateFromImage operations.
