Biometric platform functionality added to BioSec palm vein middleware
The LifePass biometric middleware from BioSec has graduated into a full-blown platform, the company says, with the ability to combine to integrate other biometric technologies.
LifePass was originally developed to integrate palm vein biometrics into a wide variety of systems to provide enhanced security, ease of use and convenience. The middleware’s flexibility and modular design can now be utilized as a platform with an increased variety of possible interfaces, according to the announcement.
As a platform, LifePass can connect to multiple systems to serve as a central authentication engine, so when a user enrolls biometrics once, the same user account can be accessed through different connected systems.
BioSec suggests it can serve as an ideal solution for a wide range of markets focussed on security or convenience. As an internal characteristic, vein structure cannot be copied, stolen or reproduced, the company states.
The technology is simple to use and performs authentication in a second, and is also contactless.
In addition to the advantages of LifePass, the integration options are almost endless, presenting further opportunities, BioSec says. It can be implemented in web-based solutions, vending machines and access control solutions, among other applications.
Vein recognition was forecast to be a $1 billion market by 2029, prior to the contactless push motivated by the pandemic.
