EyeLock launches iris recognition SDK

July 16, 2013 - 

EyeLock has announced  a new SDK, now available for developers.

“Releasing the SDK is a milestone for EyeLock; it simplifies the way customers use and benefit from our iris authentication technology and paves the way for even greater adoption across industries,” Anthony Antolino, Chief Marketing Officer of EyeLock said. “The SDK will further help EyeLock extend our game-changing hardware solutions which enable physical access control, and move deeper into logical applications by integrating the technology into digital networks.”

According to the company, its SDK is a set of API libraries for users to communicate with and control EyeLock products. EyeLock’s APIs are used to capture video iris images, convert into iris templates, enroll users in a database, match new iris templates against an existing database, allow physical of logical access based on authentication of a match and to manage an iris template database.

“In the digitally connected world we live in, biometrics are relied upon more than ever before for security. Each day we are seeing numerous exciting new use cases for biometrics,” Antolino said. “Releasing the SDK significantly accelerates the adoption and deployment of EyeLock’s biometrics technology, which creates a more secure ecosystem for both physical and logical environments. The applications are boundless and we look forward to continued adoption across market sectors.”

The new SDK is based on Microsoft .NET, supports the Microsoft Visual Studio development environment, includes APIs to build iris enabled applications to enroll and match as well as to interface with legacy physical access control systems, and also supports Wiegand and F/2F protocols.

Reported previously, Eyelock recently joined the fast-growing FIDO Alliance, an industry collective formed to address the lack of interoperability among strong authentication technologies.

The company also recently announced a partnership with Capco, a technology consultancy dedicated to the financial services industry, to implement EyeLock’s identification security solutions.
