DERMALOG says it now has “the fastest Automated Fingerprint Identification System in the world”, according to a statement from the company. It’s called DERMALOG AFIS, and the company says it can perform almost a billion matches per second.
The company hasn’t yet offered specific data on the offering’s accuracy, but says it’s “extremely reliable” based on tests performed with the Geneva-based standards testing organization SGS-TÜV Saar. But it’s the speed of the system that is its claim to fame, with DERMALOG having attained a world record in fingerprint matching with 914,959,533 matches in one second.
With DERMALOG’s fingerprint scanning technology already being used for large-scale government projects, this capability could prove appealing to its target market. The company is showing off the system at this week’s TRUSTECH 2016 conference in Cannes.
