BioEnable Technologies gets STQC certification for single-finger scanner, to be used in UIDAI Aadhaar project


The eNBioScan-C1, the FBI-certified single-finger scanner from BioEnable Technologies, was recently awarded Standardization Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) certification for the Unique Identity Authority of India’s http://uidai.gov.in/ (UIDAI) Aadhaar project.

BioEnable Technologies has been developing biometric solutions for identification, automation and tracking solutions for commercial and government clients over the past 10 years.

The UIDAI program employs biometrics in an effort to identify India’s 1.2 billion residents. Under the program, which started in 2010, each man woman and child will have their fingerprints and iris scanned. Information gathered will be embedded in a unique 12-digit identification card, called Aadhaar.

“STQC has strict testing guidelines and the eNBioScan-C1 fingerprint scanners have successfully passed the tests under the STQC’s Biometric Device Certification Scheme, designed to facilitate the availability of quality-assessed biometric devices to identity verification agencies,” BioEnable managing director Pradeep Bhatia said.

“We are honored to have the eNBioScan-C1 receive this certification as this is now required for most Indian fingerprint procurements. Our goal has always been to provide quality biometric products and solutions over the last 10 years. Obtaining STQC certification is confirmation of that goal.”

The company will provide technical support required to kick-start integration with the UIDAI AADHAAR authentication server. In addition to its STQC certification, the eNBioScan-C1 is also FBI Personal Identity Verification (PIV) certified and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) compliant.

As reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, BioEnable Technologies recently launched its new biometric Child-ID system, to help reduce incidents of newborn child swapping and child thefts.
