Fingerprint and ID doc scanner launched by Elyctis, Next Biometrics to supply sensors for Russian readers
Elyctis has launched a new hardware product for verifying fingerprint biometrics while scanning identity documents like passports.
The new ID BOX One 152 can be operated by a professional or in a self-service process, scanning documents’ machine-readable zones (MRZ) and reading RFID chips, and authenticating the user with biometrics. The device also includes a SAM (Security Access Module) slot for storing EAC (Extended Access Control) certificates to comply with ICAO ePassport standards.
ID documents processes are following bank cards towards a model of use where the credential does not leave sight of its holder, and is not handled by anyone else, according to Elyctis. The ID BOX One 152 can read all ICAO-complaint ePassports and most ID cards or driving licenses.
“Elyctis remains at the forefront of ID document reading and provides always more user-friendly solutions,” states Elyctis CEO Alexandre Joly. “With the ID BOX One 152, citizens are ensured their ID document remains in their sight during the whole transaction. This way the general public is as comfortable when their ID is checked as when they are making a payment transaction with their banking card.”
Like other products in the ID BOX One series, the Desktop version of the new device can sit on a desktop for applications in which full page scanning is not needed, while the Handheld version provides an alternative to integrated Windows and Android terminals, and the Attach series can be mounted to the body of a kiosk or other larger hardware. Elyctis readers can also be delivered in a form factor for integration by OEMs.
