Neurotechnology’s biometric template generator tops NIST MINEX interoperability category
Neurotechnology announced the latest result of its NIST MINEX III evaluation which saw the company’s biometric template generator ranked first for interoperability out of all 16 compliant generator algorithms.
The Lithuania-based biometric identification technologies provider ranked second with only 0.00001 difference from the top provider for PIV Level 1 criteria. It also outperformed that provider by more than 1.3 times for PIV Level 2 criteria, and Neurotechnology’s matcher was 2.7 times faster. In native performance, when the generator and matcher are used in tandem, Neurotechnology is the most accurate of all MINEX-compliant providers.
“With this MINEX result, Neurotechnology becomes the top provider of template-generator software in a cross-vendor or cross-version interoperable environment,” said Dr. Justas Kranauskas, head of the biometric research department for Neurotechnology. “It also consolidates Neurotechnology’s position as the provider of choice for both interoperable and native fingerprint matching environments.”
According to the announcement, among the top six most interoperable MINEX III-compliant template generator and matcher pairs, Neurotechnology’s matcher is the fastest, with remaining providers being at least 6x and 1.8x higher for PIV Level 1 interoperability and PIV Level 2 accuracy specification criteria respectively.
Neurotechnology offers a full line of MegaMatcher multibiometric products for fingerprint, face, eye iris and voice modalities and the MegaMatcher SDK includes all these modalities. Last year, the company added a new ‘Extreme’ edition to its MegaMatcher Accelerator line for national-scale projects.
