Security Software provides accurate fake finger detection.

Press Release Summary:

Used as security authentication application, version 2.0 of fake-finger-detection (FFD) solution SDK is based on fingerprint spoofing-mitigation technology and leverages features that differentiate images captured from authentic versus fake fingerprints. Accuracy range is 96.5%–99.5% for catching bogus identification attempts across various fingerprint sensor types, such as touch or swipe, as well as such technologies as optical and capacitance.

NexID Begins Shipments of Version 2.0 Fake-Finger-Detection Solution

Latest version delivers unmatched performance in security authentication applications

WASHINGTON--NexID Biometrics LLC, whose spoof-mitigation technology boosts protection in applications with critical security-authentication needs, today announced the beginning of shipments of version 2.0 of its industry leading fake-finger-detection (FFD) solution.

The company, based in Potsdam, N.Y., is making the announcement at the three-day Connect:ID Expo, which began here today at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

NexID said version 2.0 of its SDK boosts the accuracy rate range to 96.5 to 99.5 percent in catching bogus identification attempts across a variety of fingerprint-sensor types, such as touch or swipe, and technologies including optical, capacitance, and other emerging fingerprint sensor technologies.

"Our ongoing research has yielded additional fingerprint-imaging features that are highly effective in differentiating images captured from authentic versus fake fingerprints," said NexID Chief Operating Officer Mark Cornett.  "In essence, we have expanded our portfolio of fingerprint-imaging features and that translates into higher accuracy. We're not aware of any software-based, fingerprint spoofing-mitigation technology today that's more rigorous and effective than NexID's latest software improvement."

With shipments of version 2.0 now occurring, Cornett expects to see NexID's FFD solution in both traditional scanners and mobile devices coming to market in the second half of this year.
