Croma Security Solutions demonstrates biometric border control at expo

Croma Security Solutions announced it helped develop the new Future Borders Experience, which provides insight into next generation border security, featured at the Transport Security Expo.

Additionally, Croma Security Solutions CEO Roberto Fiorentino was an expert speaker at the event, which was held at the Olympia in London on December 2-3.

The exhibit was designed to demonstrate the potential for ‘frictionless passage’ through a typical border by showing how border security can use finger-vein biometric identification.

“Croma Security Solutions has been leading the way with FASTVEIN, a finger-vein biometric technology,” said Fiorentino. “FASTVEIN offers ultra-high reliability and rapid recognition and it’s a system that we’ve developed to help clients who require access control of the highest accuracy. It’s a pleasure to be involved in the Transport Security Expo, in conjunction with the Home Office and other leading security companies, to create the Future Borders Experience and highlight the role of finger-vein biometrics in the future.”

Visitors were asked to register using a finger-vein biometric and given simulated travel documentation, then used the documentation to pass through entry gates to a security screening process that features multiple authentication technologies.

The output from some of these authentication technologies was displayed on large screen TVs facing the general exhibition area so that other Transport Security Expo attendees can watch the entire process unfold.

Additionally, a large display at the rear of the experience described the different processes and data flows involved in a border of the future. To protect their privacy, visitors were given fictional identities and all data was immediately deleted upon departure.

Fiorentino was among an extensive lineup of expert speakers, which included representatives from the Home Office, Department of Transport, UK Border Force and Heathrow Airport.

The presentations aimed to reinforce the theme of the Future Borders Experience, which addresses all the elements of border security and highlights the need for cross-sector collaboration.

Previously reported, Croma Security Solutions PLC released Fastvein Time & Attendance, an attendance and people clocking solution with biometric vein recognition for businesses.
