Suprema ID BioMini Plus 2 Scanner receives STQC/UIDAI L0 certification
Suprema ID announced that its latest BioMini Plus 2 fingerprint authentication scanner tested in full compliance and received a UIDAI Registered Device Level 0 certification from the Government of India’s STQC (Standardization Testing & Quality Certification).
STQC certification is a requirement for procurements of India government’s nationwide unique identification project and ensures devices satisfy API specifications from UIDAI. The new ‘UIDAI Registered Device Level 0’ certification heightens the level of security of biometric data with encryption and digital signatures.
According to the announcement, the BioMini Plus 2 is designed for both PC and mobile based fingerprint authentication and provides a number of innovative features to enhance its image quality, performance and mobile-readiness. Suprema’s patented Multi Dynamic Range (MDR) technology guarantees high-quality image capture under extreme conditions – it operates under direct sunlight up to 100,000 LUX – regardless of the moisture level of captured finger skin. The MDR technology is developed for mobile environments where there are greater dynamics in lighting and moisture conditions.
The BioMini Plus 2 also provides enhanced levels of anti-spoofing security with a proprietary machine learning based live fingerprint detection (LFD) technology. This technology applies machine learning methods that analyze and categorize image patterns according to optical characteristics of various possible fake fingerprint materials. BioMini Plus comes in an OEM module version for hardware integration as the SFU-550.
“BioMini Plus 2 has been specially developed to meet stringent requirements for the India government’s UIDAI projects which demand fast and high quality image capturing,” explained Bogun Park, CEO at Suprema ID. “… with its compatibility to Android systems, mobile-oriented MDR technology, and anti-spoofing LFD, we are confident to gain further market share over UIDAI projects as well as fast-emerging biometric identification projects in many countries.”
