supports a wide range of biometric technologies, including fingerprint imaging, speaker verification, facial recognition, iris scanning, dynamic signature, and hand geometry.
Consortium is working to ease end-user fears when purchasing biometric applications by coordinating interoperability standards within and across biometric segments.
IR Recognition Systems, the biometric component of Ingersoll-Rand's (IR) Security & Safety Group's Electronic Access Control Division (EACD), today announced that its HandKey II access control readers and HandPunch time and attendance terminals support BioAPI
, the widely available and accepted Application Program Interface (API) that serves as a "plug-and-play" standard for biometric technologies.
May 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The BioAPI
Consortium today announced the release of the beta version of the BioAPI
Windows CE(TM) Reference Implementation.
When our company was contracted to develop a BSP for a particular biometric vendor, we were impressed with the BioAPI
technology," said Radik Gens of Gens Software Ltd.
He is also a co-founder of the International Biometric Industry Association and BioAPI
With the BioAPI
Standard, "you can have a single template out there and be able to use that on multiple manufacturers' readers," says Bulkley.
The MegaMatcher fingerprint recognition algorithm has received full NIST MINEX certification for use in US Government Personal Identity Verification program fingerprint recognition applications and it supports BioAPI
iBeta is now accredited to test to not only these additional test methods but also the previously accredited BioAPI
and CBEFF test methods.
Since it is based on the BioAPI
industry standard, the software is designed to work with a wide variety of biometric hardware-voice, face, and iris recognition devices, as well as fingerprint scanners (available separately from SAFLINK).
The development of CBEFF was performed in close coordination with industry consortiums, such as the BioAPI
Consortium, and standards technical committees, such as ANSI/ASC X9F4 Working Group.
In part, this results from the founding of the BioAPI
Consortium, a conglomerate of industry leaders working to create universal biometrics standards and protocols.
