Interview with Signot Keldorfer, Managing Director, ekey biometric systems GmbH


We have 3 different types of products. One is product group called ekey home and as the name states it is for private users. The second group is ekey net which is made for corporate users and between these two lines we have set up a new product group which has advantages of both of them. It is not as big and mighty as ekey net but it has more features than ekey home and this is called ekey multi. We consider ourselves the market leader in Europe in biometric access control for fingerprint. Of course in biometrics there are many different modes such as face recognition, iris recognition. But back then we believed that fingerprint would be the best product for mass market.

Suprema Wins Biometric ePassport Project in Mexico

Suprema Inc., a leading provider of biometrics and ID solutions, announces today that the company has won a nationwide electronic passport project of Mexico Government. The project, steered by Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE, Ministry of Exterior) of Mexico, is aimed to develop passport issuing system for 2.7 million electronic passports across all 32 states in Mexico including the Federal District of Mexico City.

With the initial shipment, Suprema has supplied over 500 units of biometric and passport issuing devices, namely, RealPass-V electronic passport reader, RealScan-10 live scanner and BioMini fingerprint scanners. Furthermore, SRE has a plan to expand this newly-developed electronic passport issuing system to its overseas Mexican embassies and newly opening offices in domestic.

RealScan-10 fingerprint live scanner which captures 4-finger slaps and two-thumbs, replaces SRE’s existing single-finger readers to improve capturing speed and image quality of fingerprints. In addition, RealPass-V passport reader provides higher level of security on issuance of electronic passports and BioMini fingerprint scanner enables biometric sign-on using pre-registered fingerprint at SRE’s nationwide passport issuance stations.

South Africa’s Fastest Growing Retail Bank Opts for Biometric ATMs

Capitec Bank is deploying Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD) automated teller machines (ATMs) to deliver advanced functionality, enhanced security and convenience to its consumers. The agreement includes Opteva 328 ATMs which feature cash recycling technology, allowing users to perform advanced transactions using notes, coins and checks, as well as perform all standard ATM functions in a single machine.

Diebold’s cash recycling ATMs automate note and coin validation, improving transaction flow and security. Migrating transactions from the teller line to the self-service channel makes money management more convenient for the user, while also allowing Capitec’s tellers to focus their time on providing value-added services to consumers.

“Our clients will benefit from Diebold’s cash recycling ATMs by having the ability to make advanced transactions, such as coin deposits,” said Riaan Stassen, chief executive officer, Capitec Bank. “This provides our clients with more control over their money and added convenience since these transactions can be performed at the self-service channel.”

In addition, the new cash recycling ATMs will soon be equipped with fingerprint recognition technology using a tiered biometric security approach, which helps mitigate card skimming. Clients will have the choice to perform transactions using either fingerprint verification or their bank card, both transactions requiring dual authentication.
