Smartcard Finger-Match provides a number of advantages over simple smartcard or fingerprint identification systems, including:
-- Enhanced security - two-factor authentication checks both the validity
of the smartcard and the identity of the person presenting the card;
-- Privacy - the original template remains on the smartcard, providing a
safeguard against misuse of information or fraudulent scanning systems;
-- Integration - implementing the system will not require major overhauls
of existing infrastructure.
"The Smartcard Finger-Match add-on brings the speed and accuracy of our algorithms into the realm of smartcard technology, and we believe this extension of our products will be of interest to many of our customers worldwide," said Algimantas Malickas, CEO of Neurotechnologija.
The matching algorithm may be used on any smart card implementing the JavaCard 2.2.1 standard and having 20 KB of EEPROM and 1.6 KB of RAM (these cards are widely available). The add-on is developed utilizing a set of ISO/IEC standards (7816-3:2006, 7816-4:2005, 7816-11:2004, 19794-2:2005)
enabling interoperability with and easy integration into existing smart card and/or biometrical systems.
Sample applets included in the Add-On enable to perform verification on the card in 2 seconds. However algorithm can be configured to give priority to accuracy or speed and memory usage.
Neurotechnologija provides biometric fingerprint and face identification algorithms and software development products to security companies, system integrators and hardware manufacturers. More than 1000 system integrators and fingerprint sensor providers worldwide integrate Neurotechnologija's technologies into their own products.
