Face recognition for Taiwan ePassport initiative

Cognitec Systems : 09 June, 2008  (Application Story)
Cognitec to supply FaceVACS biometric face recognition technology for the ePassport initiative of the Taiwan Government
Cognitec Systems has announced that its FaceVACS technology has been selected by the Bureau of Consular Affairs (BOCA) of Taiwan as the core face recognition software for its ePassports Initiative.

Cognitec face recognition software is integrated within the CryptoMetrics VisMatch solution that is utilised to confirm the identity of passport applicants. These biometric solutions utilise scanned passport applicant photos, processed to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) specifications for facial recognition to combat the use of forged or tampered travel documents.

The Cognitec-based solution demonstrates the FaceVACS algorithms' ability to provide fast, accurate and cost-effective processing. The additional benefit of FaceVACS to scale from initial deployment to the ultimate requirement of millions of face images continues to be a critical element to the overall system's success.

HP, as the prime systems integrator for the project, is providing the overall ePassport solution that includes design, development, integration and implementation of chip personalization, PKI information security technology and the integration of the CryptoMetrics-supplied image processing, image quality checking and face recognition systems.

"We are very pleased to continue our long relationship with CryptoMetrics and to be working with HP on this strategic initiative in Taiwan," said Alfredo Herrera, Cognitec's Managing Director. "We are confident that this team will deliver an effective face recognition solution for BOCA."
