GenKey updates its FastAFIS biometric matching SDK technology

May 26, 2015 - 

GenKey has released a new version of its FastAFIS SDK technology that offers a significantly improved biometric matching accuracy.

According to GenKey CTO Gavan Duffy, the new version of FastAFIS’ accuracy improvement has been measured at 10 to 1000 times lower false acceptance rates (FAR) over the typical range of false rejection rates (FRR) used in practice.

FastAFIS, which is part of GenKey’s biometric core technology, allows for ultrafast and accurate matching of fingerprints.

The technology is also used in GenKey’s biometric deduplication system (AFIS), which is deployed in many nation-scale election and health programs.

“As part of GenKey’s growth strategy, we continue to invest in R&D, resulting in world-class biometric technologies,” said GenKey CEO Michiel van der Veen. “The performance improvement of our FastAFIS technology and thereby biometric deduplication solution will enable us to further strengthen our position in the Election and Health markets around the world.”

Previously reported, GenKey recently released a new version of its SPiRE solution, a central repository platform to store, process, retrieve and maintain the registration data of subjects.
