NIST validates Aratek BIONE algorithm interoperability in MINEX III test


Aratek has announced that its BIONE fingerprint algorithm has been validated to the MINEX III standard, boosting BIONE’s PIV credentials. The company says it achieved top scores in U.S. National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) MINEX (Minute Interoperability Exchange) III evaluations.

MINEX III testing measures accuracy and interoperability of proprietary minutiae templates and compliance with the U.S. Government’s Personal Identity Verification (PIV) program, extracting and matching templates against the ANSI/INCITS 378:2004 minutiae data standard.

“We are pleased that the BIONE algorithm passed the MINEX III Test with flying colors,” comments Aratek International Business Department VP for Sales Samuel Wu. “We have had our sights on the MINEX III test for quite some time as the NIST is responsible for developing measurement standards for a particular service or product. The fact that the BIONE notched top scores serves to confirm its best-in-class status in interoperability, well as its ability to generate fast, economic, and accurate interchange of compact biometric templates.”

BIONE is both platform- and sensor-agnostic, according to the company, enabling full integration with other platforms and management of multi-vendor or cross-version solutions, regardless of the software and hardware used.

“Aratek is all about the coming together of hardware, software and algorithm to ensure that our fingerprint solutions create real value for our customers everywhere in a wide range of applications,” Wu adds.

Wu discussed the flexibility of Aratek’s fingerprint biometric technologies with Biometric Update earlier this year.
