Precise Biometrics, SecuGen showcasing fingerprint reader with spoof detection software

May 1, 2017 - 

Precise Biometrics and SecuGen will be demonstrating a fingerprint reader with anti-spoofing capabilities at the CITeR booth at connect:ID this week in Washington, D.C.

The demonstration will feature SecuGen’s fingerprint reader, the Hamster Pro 20, with Precise Biometric’s spoof detection solution for a full digit optical sensor.

Spoof detection is a “must have” functionality for biometric authentication platforms, whether for physical and logical access control, or mobile e-commerce.

SecuGen and Precise Biometrics’ U.S. operations, formerly NexID Biometrics, have shipped the Hamster Pro 20 since May 2016.

NexID Biometrics was a technology spin-off of CITeR in 2007 and was recently acquired by Precise Biometrics. The acquisition gave Precise Biometrics access to liveness detection software that stems from over 10 years of research by scientists on biometric spoof mitigation and a close working relationship with Clarkson University, one of the leading authorities in biometric research.

CITeR is the National Science Foundation industry/university research center and is currently headquartered at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY.
