HD Barcode, IriTech to release iris verification ID card solution


HD Barcode has partnered with Iritech to introduce HD IrisCheck, which they claim is the world’s first ID card with biometric iris data embedded in a proprietary 2D code.

Unlike public codes that can be created by any individual, HD Barcode requires a secure code generator which always remains with the customer to ensure that those individuals who are able to read HD Barcodes may not create or alter code data.

HD IrisCheck is ideal for schools and institutions that are reluctant to create and maintain ID databases due to the risk of them being breached.

Instead, these institutions can temporarily obtain iris scans, generate the secure code, and immediately delete personal information from the client machine to ensure there is no data stored.

Each agency or school will have a unique password protected code generator integrated on their server or would be granted cloud based access to create HD Barcodes, which eliminates the risk of backdoor hacking.

Mobile devices with the authorization key are then distributed to select personnel so that only they — and no one else — can read their HD Barcodes.

These mobile readers will use the USB enabled IriShield scanner for scanning and matching a person’s iris to the data contained in the HD Barcode.

Embedding this information into a secure HD Barcode ensures easy access to the data without the aid of a database, Internet connection or even during power outages.

The mobile device allows authorized personnel to instantly verify an individual’s identification with HD IrisCheck.

In addition, emergency medical information or other critical data can be embedded in the code and be viewed by authorized mobile devices.

Previously reported, IriTech, Inc. entered a co-promotion agreement with fingerprint sensor developer Egis Technology Inc., which is expected to create more opportunities for the two companies in the consumer technology space while focusing on the mobile industry.
