Biometric technologies provide consumers with a long-awaited convenience to securely enter cyberspace on the front end. The biometric open protocol standard (BOPS), developed by Hoyos Labs, protects digital assets and digital identities on the backend. BOPS is a biometrics-agnostic standard that opens an application programing interface (API) for registered developers. Entering as a game-changer, BOPS communication architecture enables two-way secure sockets layer (SSL) or transport layer security (TLS) connection over the encryption mechanism to the server, which employs an intrusion detection system (IDS). The IDS is an external system responsible for blacklisting devices that are violating the replay portion of this specification.
