DERMALOG’s biometric face matching software conducts 100M matches per second

March 13, 2017 - 

German biometrics firm DERMALOG announced that its Face Matching software is now the fastest biometric face matching solution on the market, achieving a 100 million matches per second on a single blade.

DERMALOG, which currently holds the world record in fingerprint matching, also offers hardware and software solutions for multi-biometric applications.

Aside from fingerprints, the company’s solutions use other biometric identifiers such as the iris and the face.

“The ‘Face Matching’ enables to match face pictures against each other or against large databases,” said Günther Mull, DERMALOG founder and managing director. “With our software, it is possible to match a group with the size of the Chinese population, around 1.4 billion people, within 14 seconds to find the most likely match.”

The software has several use applications, including border control, monitoring systems, criminal investigation, and unlocking smartphones.

“Our product can be integrated into existing solutions, is contactless, easy to use and is compatible with many image formats,” Mull said. “This shows a part of DERMALOG’s spectrum as multi-biometrics-supplier and system integrator.”

DERMALOG’s additional module helps defend against manipulations and attempts of forgery through the use of photographs, masks or videos.

Dermalog recently released the next generation of its Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) at TRUSTECH and, according to a company statement, test body SGS-TÜV Saar has confirmed that the software reliably allows the processing of almost one billion matches per second.
