iBeta completes mobile biometric device testing for Sandia


iBeta Quality Assurance Biometrics Testing Laboratory has completed its first task order of conformance testing of mobile biometric devices, under a testing contract from Sandia National Laboratories for the Department of Homeland Security.

Specifically, the work was done for the Homeland Security Advanced Research Project Agency. Under the contract, iBeta reported on data interchange standard conformance testing to ANSI/NIST ITL-1-2011 on two separate mobile biometric devices and their respective componentry.

According to iBeta, the testing determined conformance of the output transaction records for the items under test to the standard, which is the latest base standard used by the FBI, DoD and DHS for queries against large scale biometric repositories.

iBeta performs a wide range of software quality certification services, and has been adding more biometric work to its portfolio steadily.

Sandia National Laboratories is operated and managed by Sandia Corporation, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation. Sandia Corporation operates Sandia National Laboratories as a contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration and supports numerous federal, state, and local government agencies, companies, and organizations.

Reported previously, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration approved iBeta’s certification process for a biometrics subsystem for electronic prescriptions for controlled substances in 2012.

According to iBeta’s website, the biometrics testing lab was awarded the Sandia contract in October, 2012.
