ComBiom is a multimodal, simul- ABC taneous, biometric authentication process that queries biometric face, voice, lip movement, and word recognition with a randomly generated numerals.

ComBiom Communication Biometrics Individual biometry PermaFace PermaVoice Another advantage of ComBiom is that the biometric face recognition and the biometric voice recognition can also be used separately, in other words, not in combination with the other biometrics. From these possible couplings, BIOME- AG has developed two other products: PermaFace and PermaVoice. PermaFace stands for perma- nent biometric face recognition.
