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.DERMALOG Claims Fastest AFIS in the World

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.
