Solutions

When it comes to identity management there is no single solution for every need. In the world of biometrics the number of ways to solve a problem are as numerous as a body's unique traits. Here you will find a list of biometric solutions organized by modality (fingerprint, iris, face, voice, etc.) as well as the companies that provide them.

Behavioral Biometrics

Behavioral Biometrics –Click here to see the behavioral biometrics solutions directory– What are Behavioral Biometrics? Humans are creatures of habit. The way we walk, the way we type, how we move our cursors around on a website’s login or checkout page—these are deeply ingrained rituals that, while we don’t necessarily realize it consciously, are unique to us.…

Biometric Sensors and Detectors

Biometric Sensors and Detectors –Click here to see the biometric sensors and detectors directory– What are biometric sensors? In order to capture images of the unique biological traits used to identify, verify, and authenticate via biometric technology, specialized hardware is often required. Biometric sensors are made to do just that. Whether they are high definition cameras…

Facial Recognition

Facial Recognition –Click here to see the facial recognition solutions directory– What is facial recognition? Like all biometrics solutions, face recognition technology measures and matches the unique characteristics for the purposes of identification or authentication. Often leveraging a digital or connected camera, facial recognition software can detect faces in images, quantify their features, and then match…

Fingerprint Readers

Biometric Fingerprint Readers –Click here to see the fingerprint reader solutions directory– What are fingerprint readers? Fingerprints are practically synonymous with identity. The unique ridges and whorls on the tips of your finger have been distinguishing one person from another since 1788 when German anatomist Johann Christoph Andreas Mayer discovered that every fingerprint is different. Fingerprint…

Hand Readers & Finger Scanners

Hand and Finger Scanners –Click here to see the hand readers & finger scanners solutions directory– What are biometric hand and finger scanners? Many identity applications demand more than just a single fingerprint. Law enforcement booking, criminal background checks, national ID enrollment, border control—these and other areas of biometric tech deployment can require all ten…

Iris Recognition

Iris Recognition –Click here to see the iris recognition solutions directory– What is iris recognition? Iris scanning biometrics measure the unique patterns in the colored circle of your eye to verify and authenticate your identity. Contactless, fast and renowned for its accuracy, biometric iris recognition can operate at long distances, with some solutions that leverage the…

Middleware and Software

Biometric Software and Middleware –Click here to see the biometric middleware and software solutions directory– What is biometric software? Biometric identification, verification, and authentication relies not only on the proper sensors used to capture biological data, it also requires the algorithms and software to store, encrypt, match and compare the fingerprints, irises, vein patterns, and…

Multimodal Biometrics

Multimodal Biometrics –Click here to see the multimodal biometrics solutions directory– What are multimodal biometrics solutions? When a given solution offers more than one biometric scanning option, it is referred to as multimodal. With such a broad definition, the term multimodal biometrics solution can refer to any technology that combines different types of biometrics, either to…

Smart Cards

Smart Cards –Click here to see the smart cards solutions directory– What are biometric smart cards? Smart cards, as their name implies, are plastic cards with integrated circuits that allow them to contain important, rich data. The most common of these are modern credit and debit cards, as well as, in some countries, national ID…

Vein Recognition

Vein Recognition –Click here to see the vein recognition solutions directory– What is biometric vein recognition? Vein recognition, otherwise known as vascular biometrics, refers to technology that measures parts of a subject’s circulatory system which is a s unique to her as a fingerprint. Segmented into different sub-modalities, vascular biometrics solutions use optical scanning technology…

Voice and Speech Recognition

Voice and Speech Recognition –Click here to see the voice and speech recognition solutions directory– What is Voice and Speech Recognition? Voice and speech recognition are two separate biometric modalities that, because they are dependent on the human voice, see a considerable amount of synergy. Both are contactless, software based technologies, and as such are…
