Bio-Metrica announced it has developed BII, a new multi-factor authentication identity framework that uses multiple biometric data types (fingerprint, facial recognition, iris, vein, speech, signature recognition, SMT) and non-biometric data types (smartcard, token, passwords) across different applications.
The multi-factor authentication identity framework allows entities to enroll once and use the same data across different applications.
BII allows easy integration of existing applications which would typically be unable to communicate with each other.
The framework consolidates their data, helping to reduce duplication, fraud, or other activities that are more susceptible in single system solutions.
There are many potential applications, including AFIS, biometric identification system, voter registration system, national ID, census, driver’s license, border control systems, and any other automatic biometric and non biometric identification system.
The framework allows users to create mandatory or optional fields for different types of data (both biometric and non-biometric) in each of the respective applications using the BII database.
BII is available both as a separate framework with functions which can be used for development of third party applications or integrated with one of Bio-Metrica’s other applications.
The framework can integrate new biometric algorithms from any biometric type in a short period of time, allowing different matching strategies to be used for better identification, such as multi-factor identification, and duplication searching using multiple biometrics.
BII can work on a range of platforms including PCs and laptops, smart phones and tablets, while BII infrastructure benefits from splitting processing between client and server systems with the ability to harness the computing power of agents via BII’s core matcher manager.
“BII is a cutting edge multi-factor framework that allows any authentication method from any vendor to be used by applications,” said Ronen Yacobi, founder of Bio-Metrica LLC. “With both desktop and mobile devices, it gives clients the ability to use a single set of data across all their applications.”
Interested users can take advantage of a 30-day free evaluation of BII.
