BioID offers a biometric authentication service - the BioID Web Service (BWS) – including facial biometrics and liveness detection. It is a cloud-based online service with a pure match-on-server principle. Using the Microsoft Windows Azure™ infrastructure, BWS dynamically scales up to any performance or space requirement.
This is the upcoming, new implementation of BWS. It is now not only intended to run as (Docker-) containers, but it also comes with a newly designed API. As we use the gRPC framework for the communication, the API is specified by a Protobuf file (see gRPC API), which defines the interface and its underlying message interchange format.
Note: BWS 3.0 is not yet online!
