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.

Biometric Sensors & Detectors

Biometric Sensors & Detectors A wide range of biometric sensors & detectors are available to consumers for security and access control management. Biometrics refers to methods for recognizing individual people based on unique physical and behavioral traits. Physiological biometrics are one class of biometrics that deals with physical characteristics and attributes that are unique to…

Facial Recognition

Facial Recognition Some facial recognition software algorithms identify faces by extracting features from an image of a subject’s face. Other algorithms normalize a gallery of face images and then compress the face data, only saving the data in the image that can be used for facial recognition. A probe image is then compared with the face…

Fingerprint Readers

 Biometrics Fingerprint Readers for ID and Access Control Fingerprint readers take impressions of the friction ridges of the skin on the underside of the tip of the fingers.  Fingerprints are used to identify you and are unique and different to everyone and do not change over time.  Even identical twins who share their DNA do not have the…

Hand Readers & Finger Scanners

Biometrics Hand/Palm Scanners and Finger Readers A person’s hand/palm and finger are unique however not as unique as their fingerprints or irises, for this reason, businesses and schools like to use hand scanner and finger reader biometrics technology, to authenticate but not identify its users. Authentication is a one-to-one comparison; it compares your characteristic with your stored…

Iris Scanners & Recognition

Iris Scanners & Recognition Iris cameras perform recognition detection of a person’s identity by mathematical analysis of the random patterns that are visible within the iris of an eye from some distance.  It combines computer vision, pattern recognition, statistical inference and optics. Of all the biometric devices and scanners available today, it is generally conceded that iris recognition is the…

Middleware/Software

Biometrics Middleware / Software Middleware / Software for  biometrics applications provides a set of services and instructions for multiple processes to run effectively across a network. Middleware / software allows for biometric devices and the computers and networks they are connected to, to be interoperable and compatible with each other. It allows different application software…

Multimodal Biometrics

Multimodal Biometrics Multimodal Biometrics are systems that are capable of using more than one physiological or behavioral characteristic for enrollment, verification or identification.  For biometric identification to be ultra-secure and provide above average accuracy, more than one type must be used as only one form of it may not be accurate enough.  One example of…

Signature/Keystroke

Digital Signature / Keystroke Biometrics A digital biometrics signature is equivalent to a traditional handwritten signature in many respects since if the signature is properly implemented is more difficult to forge then the traditional type. Digital signature schemes are cryptographically based and must be implemented properly to be effective.  Digital signatures can be used for electronic mail, contracts,…

Smart Cards

Biometrics Smart Cards A smart card is a pocket sized plastic card with an embedded chip that can process data, used   in industries such as health care, banking, government and biometrics.  Smart cards can process data via input and output of information.  A smart card is essentially a mini processor. Smart cards provide identification, authentication, data storage,…

Vein Recognition

Vein Recognition Biometrics Biometrics, such as with vein recognition, refers to methods for recognizing individual people based on unique physical and behavioral traits. Physiological biometrics is one class of biometrics that deals with physical characteristics and attributes that are unique to individuals. Vein recognition is a type of biometrics that can be used to identify individuals based…

Voice/Speech Recognition

Voice/Speech Recognition A Voice Recognition voiceprint is a spectrogram.  A spectrogram is a graph that shows a sound’s frequency on the vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis. Different speech creates different shapes on the graph. Spectrograms also use colour or shades of grey to represent the acoustical qualities of sound. All of our…
