Application: Systems and methods for hyperspectral imaging based authentication (Patent ID: US20240086924A1)

The patent filed by Bank of America Corp. describes systems, methods, and computer program products for hyperspectral imaging-based authentication. The method involves receiving check data associated with a user, extracting field details from the data, generating hyperspectral image data based on the extracted details, determining spectral characteristics from the image data, and identifying tampering indications based on these characteristics. The system includes storage devices and processors to carry out these functions, with the hyperspectral imaging module dividing the image data into spectral bands to analyze reflectance values for tampering detection.

The system and computer program product outlined in the patent claims focus on utilizing hyperspectral imaging for authentication purposes, particularly in the context of physical or digital checks. The technology involves capturing check data, extracting field details, generating hyperspectral images, and analyzing spectral characteristics to detect tampering. The system can also generate notifications for users, facilitate payment operations, and compare reflectance values across spectral bands to determine tampering indications. This innovative approach enhances security measures in financial transactions by leveraging hyperspectral imaging technology for authentication and fraud detection.
