Suprema slim fingerprint biometrics module integrated by Elyctis with eID and ePassport readers

Suprema ID’s FAP 20-certified BM-Slim2 fingerprint module is being integrated into the new Elyctis ID Box One 152 and 341 eID and ePassport readers, the company has announced.

The Elyctis ID Box One 152 is a scanner allowing citizens to scan the machine-readable zone (MRZ) or RFID chip of identity documents, and authenticate their identity with biometric fingerprint verification, while keeping their documents in sight. The scanner can provide self-service or be operated by an attendant. Both the ID Box One 152 and 341 include a Security Access Module (SAM) slot for storing the Extended Access Control (EAC) certificates used for ICAO ePassport compliance.

The BM-Slim2, which Suprema ID says is the world’s smallest FAP20-certified module, is 13.5mm in thickness and provides optical scanning.  The company claims it produces fingerprint images of unrivalled quality, and offers best-in-class features including its proprietary Multi-dynamic Range (MDR) technology, compliance to FBI PIV, FIPS 201 and Mobile ID FAP20 standards, USB 2.0 interface and Android support.

“We are very happy to collaborate with Suprema ID for the integration of fingerprint modules in our Elyctis ID BOX One 152 and 341,” comments Alexandre Joly, CEO of Elyctis. “These new products are the latest addition to our already extensive ID BOX reader product range and are a demonstration permanent adaptation to customer demand.”

With Suprema ID joining the Elyctis ecosystem of technology partners, we will be able to provide full benefits of our fingerprint scanners to customers worldwide.”

Suprema upgraded the security capabilities of its BioStar 2 platform with a new version release in May.
