Biometric Update

  1. This is a guest post by Ethan Ayer, CEO of Resilient Network Systems. Biometrics have been used in the government sector for many years, with fingerprint recognition being the first practical adoption of the technology. Over a century ago, law enforcement began fingerprinting criminals, recording them on paper cards which were stored in filing cabinets and warehouse repositories. Today, advances in computer and mobile technology allow a police officer to readily fingerprint a suspect using a biometrics app downloaded to
  2. Integrated Biometrics has received orders for more than 2,000 units of its Five-O mobile fingerprint scanner in the first month of its general availability, the company announced Tuesday. Initially unveiled in late April, the Five-O is an FBI certified FAP50 10-finger scanner which has a rugged design and is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. Integrated Biometrics said in the announcement that it considers the sales an enthusiastic market validation, considering new product success in the market is
  3. Crossmatch announced that pharmacy management solutions firm Computer-Rx has implemented its biometric identity management technology. Prior to selecting Crossmatch, Computer-Rx considered many competing technologies to replace usernames and passwords, including badge ID-scanning technologies. However, Computer-Rx chose Crossmatch fingerprint biometrics and its customizable DigitalPersona U.are.U SDK software for its attractive value proposition that includes a high level of security, improved operational efficiencies and convenient access to Computer-Rx pharmacy management solutions. “We wanted to provide our users with a convenient and secure
  4. Technavio has published a new research market report that forecasts that the global biometric PoS terminals market will grow at a CAGR of nearly 28 percent from 2017 to 2021. The report lists facial recognition, fingerprint identification, iris recognition, palm vein identification, retina recognition, and voice recognition as the six major segments based on technology. According to Technavio, fingerprint identification dominated the market in 2016 with a revenue share of 85 percent. “The biometric POS terminals market will grow at
  5. SRI International has been awarded a four-year $12.5 million contract by IARPA’s Odin Program to research and develop “dynamic biometrics” that can more effectively detect attempts to evade or dupe biometric security systems. By spotting these “presentation attacks”, the research organization will be able to address key flaws in current generation biometric security systems. This will ultimately expand biometric use cases beyond relatively low risk applications such as unlocking a person’s phone, or applications in which a human guard must
  6. Qualcomm has unveiled Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors, the company’s next-generation ultrasonic fingerprint solutions, at Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017. The new line of fingerprint solutions include new and improved features not included in the previous generation Qualcomm Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology. These features include sensors for display, glass and metal, detection of directional gestures, and underwater fingerprint match and device wake-up. It marks the first commercially announced integrated ultrasonic-based mobile solution to detect heartbeat and blood flow for improved mobile
  7. Biometric technology startup Tokenize has developed Token, a ring embedded with a fingerprint sensor that can be used for payments, access and several other applications, according to a report by Engadget. Although the ring itself is made of thick metal and plastic, its interior contains an optical sensor, a fingerprint sensor, and NFC and Bluetooth as well as a chip with a secure element inside. Once the individual puts on the ring, Token immediately begins scanning his or her fingerprint
  8. NEXT Biometrics is a familiar name in the fingerprint sensor market, having shipped its two millionth sensor in April, and with a company history that includes integration into Dell laptops, and its innovation of flexible fingerprint sensors to add biometric security to smartcards. The company has entered a new phase, however, led by new CEO Ritu Favre, and is preparing to leverage its extensive research and development by entering new market segments and scaling production. There are four markets NEXT
  9. OT-Morpho has introduced what it calls “the market’s first” complete range of biometric payment cards. Biometric recognition occurs through a fingerprint sensor integrated into a fully EMV-compliant card. The cardholder’s fingerprint template is securely stored in the chip of the card. As the card is inserted into/tapped onto an EMV payment terminal, cardholders place their finger onto the sensor and an OT-Morpho algorithm matches the fingerprint to the template stored in the card, replacing the manual entry of a PIN.
  10. In an Amazon guest blog post, Chris Adzima, a senior Information systems analyst for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, discussed how his team uses AWS for facial recognition as well as Amazon Rekognition as a crime-solving tool to identify persons of interest. In its initial testing of AWS and Amazon Rekognition, Washington County Sheriff’s Office uploaded 300,000 mugshots from as far back as 2001, which were stored on its jail management system (JMS), into Amazon S3. Following this upload, the
