With more than 20 years experience in the development of biometric solutions, we have built a strong expertise in fingerprint and face recognition algorithms. Our technologies are recognized worldwide for their performance in the field.
Our facial recognition technology implements the most advanced techniques in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning. It provides uncompromised performance, both in term of speed and accuracy.
What is Biometrics?
Biometrics designates the set of techniques used to verify people’s identity based on their human characteristics. Most common human characteristics used in biometrics are physiological including fingerprints, face or iris. The technology is mainly used for identification, identity management or access control.
Is it a secure technology?
Biometrics are the only form of identification that truly identifies a person: “you are your own key”. In contrast to Passwords, PINs, cards and other forms of identifiers, biometric ID can’t be lost or forgotten. Compared to other identification technologies, the likelihood of someone gaining access to personal information is significantly reduced. To increase security and accuracy, multimodal biometrics combines several biometric sources.
How are the biometric data used?
Given the countries, different laws protect access to biographic data. When authorized, biometric data usually stored by governments organizations, not by the technology provider itself, with ciphered templates, not images. Biometrics technology providers must prove and sign certifications stating their products do not store citizens’ biometrics data.
Authentication or Identification?
Also called 1:1 comparison, authentication answers the question “Are you the person you pretend to be?”. The identity of the person is supposed, her/his biometric data is compared to her/his own previously enrolled biometric data. Also called 1:N comparison, identification answers the question ” Are you in our database?”. The person’s biometric data is compared to previously biometric data of all enrolled persons in a specified database.
