DERMALOG supplies fingerprint scanners for refugee registration in Germany

March 15, 2016 - 

DERMALOG announced that it is providing its new LF10 fingerprint scanners for refugee registration in Germany, and will be demonstrating the scanners at CeBIT in Hanover from March 16 – 20.

The company will be unveiling several biometric products including the new fingerprint scanners, which will be used to produce the new refugee identity cards.

Since January 28, 2016, refugees being registered in Germany have been issued with a special refugee identity card or “proof of arrival”.

The registration process is using a new biometric authentication system that is integrated with DERMALOG’s LF10 scanner, which scans and records all 10 fingerprints of the refugee. The system will gradually be introduced nationwide by mid-2016.

In addition to demonstrating its LF10 scanner at CeBIT, DERMALOG will also be showcasing Real-time AFIS, which can recognize people from their fingerprint in under three seconds – even when using large databases.

“The use of fingerprints is now gradually replacing PIN numbers and passwords, as biometrics is much more user-friendly,” said Günther Mull, managing director of DERMALOG. “Biometrics is not only much more secure, but is also much more convenient than passwords.”

DERMALOG will also demonstrate the uniFLOW output management solution from Canon, as well as the latest facial and iris recognition technologies.

Finally, the company will be showcasing VF1 combi scanner, which it calls the world’s first and only scanner that can scan fingerprints and passports via the same surface. The scanner is ideal for border control, banks and automatic gates.

Earlier this month, DERMALOG announced that its biometric identification technology is helping to fight fraud in Nigeria.
