Biometric identity and election management solutions firm GenKey announced that its BioFinger SDK technology has received certification in the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test.
BioFinger is GenKey’s recently released fingerprint matching technology.
GenKey’s BioFinger 1.0 has already achieved strong performance results and a high ranking in the FVC-onGoing, a web-based evaluation system that compares accuracy and speed of fingerprint algorithms from different vendors as evaluated by an independent organization.
Now, BioFinger SDK has received certification in NIST’s MINEX, which is an ongoing evaluation of the INCITS 378 fingerprint template which measures the performance and interoperability of template encoding and matching to users, vendors and third parties.
“We are very proud to receive the MINEX certification,” said GenKey CEO Michiel van der Veen. “It proves the excellent performance and interoperability of our technology, which can be attributed to our continued investment in research and development of biometric technology.
“We are noticing a growing demand for biometric solutions that meet international and government standards in the elections and health markets so receiving the MINEX certification for our BioFinger SDK is an important achievement for us.”
