id3 fingerprint on-card comparison technology achieves NIST MINEX III compliance


id3 Technologies announced that its fingerprint on-card comparison technology has achieved the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) MINEX III compliance.

The Minutiae Interoperability Exchange (MINEX) III is a continuing test set up by NIST, to establish compliance of fingerprint template generators and template matchers for the U.S. Government’s Personal Identity Verification (PIV) program.

The company’s latest algorithm meets high performance and interoperability requirements while remaining very fast and needing very low working memory. This new version also introduces a score-level fusion feature which allows the user to authenticate using several fingers for even better security.

“These results prove once again that our fingerprint on-card comparison technology is able to compete with the best fingerprint recognition systems while offering much better security and privacy to the end-user”, says Jean-Louis REVOL, President of id3 Technologies.

According to a statement by the company, the biometric on-card comparison technology, also known as “match-on-card”, provides better security and privacy for end-users by integrating both the storage and matching subsystems into a secure integrated circuit chip, removing the need for databases.
