Idex continues to exceed biometrics standards for payment certification
Idex Biometrics’ patented on-card enrollment solution has been successfully used as part of the certification process for a global payment scheme and exceeded the biometric standards required for certification.
The company reports that its on-card remote enrollment sleeve was used by an independent third-party testing facility to gather real-world fingerprint images and the results of the image-capture data from the tests far exceeded the FRR and FAR benchmarks required for certification.
Last month the company’s dual-interface fingerprint technology also passed multiple payment schemes’ certification requirements.
“It is generally accepted that a convenient, easy to use on-card enrollment solution is key to broad adoption of biometric cards and the quality of the enrollment is critical to biometric performance,” says Stan Swearingen, CEO of Idex Biometrics. “These results not only show the power of IDEX’s biometric sensor technology, they are also a strong validation of the value proposition of Idex’s unique on-card remote enrollment solution. We look forward to this solution being an integral part of our customers’ deployment of biometric smart cards.”
Idex will demonstrate its biometric card technology at APSCA Digital Payments South Asia 2019 later this month in Mumbai.
