Warwick Warp gets STQC accreditation

Categories Biometrics News

Warwick Warp’s fingerprint feature extractor has now been certified by the Standardisation Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) Directorate in India.

According to the company, this fresh certification was obtained in cooperation with Anaxee Technologies, Warwick Warp’s strategic partner in India.

As we’ve reported, STQC certification is a requirement for biometric authentication in India’s Unique Identity Authority’s Aadhaar project and Warwick’s feature extractor will be used with a fingerprint scanner for authentication within the program.

“I was delighted when I heard we had received STQC certification and I am extremely grateful to Anaxee for their assistance in helping us achieve this important milestone.” Stewart Hefferman, CEO of Warwick Warp said. “Warwick Warp continually strives to deliver high quality fingerprint matching software and obtaining STQC certification, so soon after our MINEX and PIV certification, will open up exciting new opportunities for our partners and demonstrates our continued investment in R&D.”

Reported previously, Warwick Warp’s fingerprint feature extractor technology has also been certified under the PIV/MINEX compliance program from the United States’ National Institutes for Standards and Technology. 

“We are happy to partner with Warwick Warp and achieve this certification. We have been very active with UIDAI for Authentication and this STQC certification will boost our partnership with Warwick Warp,” Govind Agrawal, CEO of Anaxee Technologies said. “Warwick Warp technology is especially useful with low quality fingerprints, common throughout the Indian population, and also works well on wet, oily, dirty, and mehendi fingers. This superiority was proven in FRR Field Testing conducted by UIDAI-STQC-CDAC where the combination of Warwick Warp feature extractor and a Futronic FS88 gave exceptional accuracy. Because of this enhanced accuracy with poor quality fingers, Warwick Warp is being deployed in multiple government and non-government projects in India.
