Top NIST Ranking for MorphoTrak Fingerprint Algorithm

MorphoTrak : 11 February, 2010  (New Product)
The biometric fingerprint matching algorithm used by MorphoTrak for identification and authentication has received the highest score in NIST test for latent fingerprint accuracy
MorphoTrak (Safran Group) has announced the biometric matching technology it uses, through Sagem Sécurité, earned the highest rank in the recent National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) test for latent fingerprint accuracy. In the preliminary report from the Evaluation of Latent Fingerprint Technologies: Extended Feature Sets (ELFT-EFS) test, the Sagem Sécurité/MorphoTrak algorithm excelled in accuracy under all conditions. An algorithm is a software process at the center of biometric matching performance. Such tests help local, federal and international agencies choose the top biometric technologies for their programs.


The NIST ELFT-EFS test was developed to evaluate the current state-of-the-art in latent fingerprint matching. The test compared searches of features manually marked by experienced latent print examiners with automated (image-only) searches. Features included minutiae, extended feature sets (EFS), as well as other search criteria. The Sagem Securite/MorphoTrak algorithm was proven to be the most accurate with both automated searches and searches that followed examiner best practices, in addition to having the best overall accuracy. Five vendors, including all major AFIS companies, competed in the ELFT-EFS test.

"We are extremely pleased with the excellent results announced by the US government's top testing laboratory for fingerprint technology," stated Daniel Vassy, President and CEO of MorphoTrak. "Our commitment to advance biometrics standards and continually innovate technology for our government clients is now proving its value."

MorphoTrak has over 35 years of experience in fingerprint technology and pioneered Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS). Since then MorphoTrak has continued to innovate and excel, successfully deploying fingerprint technology to well over 300 customers in over 40 countries.
