Aware to deliver web-based biometric enrollment solution to DoD


Aware, Inc. is providing its WebEnroll, BioComponents, and BioSP products as part of a new system to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to screen applicants for employment.

The solution enables fingerprints to be collected using a biometric enrollment application that runs in a browser, making it easier to distribute, maintain, and secure across the DoD’s various departments and numerous facilities and bases.

Named “SWFT Plus Enrollment” (SWFT+), the new system is administrated by the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) to bring significant enhancements to the existing Secure Web Fingerprint Transmission (SWFT) system.

The system standardizes the capture, storage, and forwarding of electronic fingerprints across the DoD in a manner that enables use of existing fingerprint capture workstations.

Following SWFT+’s successful pilot and roll out for the Army, senior DoD officials have mandated the system for department-wide deployment.

The system will now be used by the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps to screen applicants for military and civilian positions.

“Enabling biometric capture in a browser presents difficult technical challenges, but also significant advantages for our customers, particularly for large, broadly distributed deployments,” said Rob Mungovan, VP of biometrics at Aware. “The DMDC system is the largest in the world of its kind, and we are pleased to be a leading provider of this important biometric technology, particularly as cloud-based biometrics gain favor. It’s our latest success in delivering complex, mission-critical biometric solutions on a large scale.”

WebEnroll uses Aware’s BioComponents, which operate within a browser to collect, analyze, and submit biographic data, live scan and card-based fingerprints, facial images, and iris images.

Additionally, BioComponents enable the use of different models of biometric capture peripherals in the same system.

The server-based BioSP performs a range of key functions, including management of the configuration and distribution of the WebEnroll application, standards-based validation, formatting, and routing of enrollment submissions, and processing of search results.

Previously reported, Aware, Inc. introduced FIDO Suite, a family of software products that enable secure biometric authentication on mobile devices using “selfies”.
