Then I found out a local distributor that we already had a relationship with was a distributor for the Iris ID hardware and they invited me up to their office. I went up the same day that I talked to him because I was so interested and I didn’t realize that there was a commodity out there that would be priced affordably enough for our university to look at. We looked at it and we saw the iCam units that Iris ID manufactures and I saw it being used in single factor authentication and I was shown the data that supports their claims of high accuracy, negligible chance of false positive based on the number of data points that is used within an iris, I think 252 data points, and I think less than 1/10th that for fingerprint. So I was thinking that iris is probably ten times more accurate, more unique than fingerprint, and that sounds pretty good, and I don’t have to touch the iris scanner, that sounds pretty good, and it was fast, I was watching how fast they could use it and that’s pretty good, the software looked like it was manageable. So we got the units in, assigned a team and we decided to integrate it ourselves rather than trying to find a company out there to do the integration. We were very familiar with our card access system which is a company called Lenel which is a fairly well know system for access control.
fB: Yes I know them well. So you took on the integration yourself and that went smoothly?

WU: Yes and with just 4 of us and we were able to get that done in a little more than 2 weeks. I don’t think that is a typical success story so we are pretty proud of it. It does show that the technology integration is very doable, very workable and once you understand it, it is actually trivial. We did all that and we started having our ID office enroll people with the iris scanner as they came into ID office when they came in for other business. So if someone came in with a lost or stolen ID card we would…

Brand New Signs Agreement with Iris ID

Biometric identity and access management continues to enjoy growth despite the fact that it has never worked 100% successfully using only a traditional fingerprint scan. Increasingly, organisations are looking for a more accurate, less invasive technology to incorporate into their access control and other ID management systems. Iris recognition readily fills this requirement with its…
