Tech5 biometric fingerprint software made available to partners as NIST confirms accuracy
Touchless biometric solutions firm Tech5 has made its T5-Finger software development kits (SDKs) technology available to partners and customers, the company announced.
The technology scored second-most accurate in the NIST PFT III test earlier this month, also achieving the fastest template comparison time of all vendors participating in the testing and one of the smallest biometric template sizes. The NIST PFT (Proprietary Fingerprint Template) test evaluates the performance of proprietary biometric fingerprint templates in one-to-one matching, as opposed to the organization’s MINEX test, which evaluates interoperable, standardized templates.
“High results in NIST PFT III, the latest NIST evaluation for fingerprints, demonstrates Tech5’s commitment toward continuous investment in research and development,” commented Rahul Parthe, Tech5 co-founder and CTO.
The T5-Finger technology by Tech5 is used by a number of the company’s products, including the T5-ABIS and T5-MBAP verification platforms.
Also powered by the same technology is T5-IDencode, the latest addition to the Tech5 portfolio, and a solution focusing on digital credentials applications.
T5-IDencode was developed by Tech5 in collaboration with HD Barcode. The tool utilizes barcode technology for personal and biometric data management through fingerprints or facial recognition.
Now, the company’s fingerprint biometric algorithms will be available for implementation into new solutions for Tech5 partners and customers.
“We are constantly improving our biometric algorithms and platforms, as well as touchless capture and recognition technologies, to make sure that our customers and partners are equipped with the latest and greatest products,” Parthe concluded.
Fingerprint reading is not the only field of biometrics Tech5 has been working on in 2020.
In June, the company introduced the T5 Digital Identity Toolkit, which offers biometric capture, liveness detection, and compression algorithms for facial images, together with T5-IDencode capabilities.
