DigitalPersona FingerJet Recognition Engine Top Performer in Recent MINEX Testing

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalPersona, Inc., a trusted partner for biometric identity verification solutions, today announced that the DigitalPersona® FingerJet® Recognition Engine matching elements have been certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the MINEX (Minutia Exchange) testing program to meet the United States Government's Personal Identity Verification (PIV) standards.  The DigitalPersona FingerJet Recognition Engine feature extractor had been certified by NIST in earlier testing. These two certifications assure that fingerprint templates obtained by the DigitalPersona FingerJet Recognition Engine are interoperable across other certified extraction and matching engines.

Ensuring interoperability of fingerprint technology components has become essential as the use of fingerprints for strong authentication and identity is more widespread.  The MINEX test confirms matching performance of standards-based (INCITS 378) fingerprint templates when tested across vendors and validates performance of fingerprint engines using tens of thousands of fingerprint images in government databases. 

As of December 2013, 68 vendors have submitted fingerprint feature extraction and/or matching engines for testing.  The result of testing has confirmed that the DigitalPersona FingerJet Recognition Engine is in the top 10% of all tested engines, both for absolute performance and mean and median accuracy when interoperating with other compliant engines. 

"A unique property of our engine is its use in low-cost, embedded processors without compromise in accuracy or responsiveness," said Vance Bjorn, CTO and vice president of corporate development at DigitalPersona. "This has enabled DigitalPersona's engine to be one of the most widely deployed engines for fingerprint authentication. More than 200M people rely on DigitalPersona's fingerprint technology and products in commercial authentication applications."

The MINEX results can be found here.
