NIST Evaluation Reveals Outstanding Performance For id3 Fingerprint Algorithms

Id3 : 23 November, 2010  (New Product)
Biometric fingerprint recognition technology from id3 Semiconductors has been under scrutiny at the US Security Agency NIST where outstanding performance was reported in a multivendor evaluation
id3 Semiconductors, a global provider of fingerprint recognition solutions, has announced that the company's fingerprint recognition technology has demonstrated outstanding performance in a multivendor evaluation conducted by the NIST US Agency.

The NIST MINEX test results were released on September 1st, 2010, showing that id3's fingerprint template extractor leads to the lowest error rate to date in fingerprint verification, outperforming all previously submitted extractors from more than 20 vendors, including well-known biometric market leaders. The company's template matcher also recorded excellent results.

The complete MINEX results can be found on the organisation's web site. id3's fingerprint template extractor (2Y) reached a top-level 0.24% false non-match rate at a fixed 0.01 false match rate for two fingers.

This achievement establishes compliance of id3's technology with US Government's PIV program and demonstrates its ability to efficiently extract and compare fingerprint standardized information, even from poor quality images. It is also completely independent of the sensing technology used for fingerprint image capture, including optical, capacitive and thermal sensors.

id3's certified technology is already featured in the id3 Fingerprint Software Development Kit, for integration of state-of-the-art, standardized and sensor independent fingerprint verification on a computer. In combination with its Fingerprint On-Card Comparison technology (certified by MINEX II on June 2009), id3 can provide a complete biometric solution ensuring very high security while preserving user's privacy.
