New standards in biometric face recognition

DERMALOG at Cartes 2013 in Paris

The biometrics expert DERMALOG presented two innovations at Cartes exhibition in Paris: an feature enhancement for the LF10 Fingerprint Scanner adds a new dimension function in signature capture as it can record signatures alongside the biometric fingerprint scan. Additionally, DERMALOG sets new standards in biometric face recognition with show-casing its user-friendly and distinctly accurate Interactive ICAO Face Check! The software is the first interactive tool to combine face capture with a simultaneous check in accordance with the standards prescribed by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization).

Paris, November 2013 - DERMALOG Identification Systems has presented its pioneering biometric identification technologies at the Cartes exhibition in Paris - the world‘s biggest trade fair for digital security and smart technologies. DERMALOG's exhibition focuses on two product innovations presented to the public for the first time: the Signature Fingerprint Scanner and the Interactive ICAO Face Check module.

The DERMALOG LF10 Fingerprint Scanner for rolled fingerprints and tenprints is now available with an unprecedented additional function: a software module enables the scanner to record signatures as well as fingerprints. The fingerprint and signature are recorded on exactly the same scanning window. This means that, other than a pen, no additional hardware is required, such as a signature pad. Optimum use of the LF10 is guaranteed by an integrated switching function so that both applications can be used in quick succession. In many countries, this technology covers the need for multifunctional devices for biometric identification. For example, it can be used in visa, security documents applications, in elections, etc.

With the product launch of its Interactive ICAO Face Check module, DERMALOG has added another new biometric identification technique to its product range. The software enables face images to be taken in accordance with the requirements of the ICAO using a commercial webcam. In doing so, the following requirements of Standard ISO 19794-5 developed by the ICAO are checked in real time: frontal face image, neutral background, visibility of the face and correct facial expression. The image produced can then be used for facial recognition. Further biometric features from the international directive are currently being implemented in the software. As it performs a live comparison of standardized biometric facial features, the Interactive ICAO Face Check module is used in particular at border controls or in other similar registration procedures. In addition to the live creation and check of a face image, the software can also perform biometric identification, in accordance with the features listed in ISO 19794-5, on images that have already been created.

„We are very proud of how our products have developed and we look forward to presenting these pioneering innovations for the first time at one of the most important trade fairs in the sector,“ said Günther Mull, CEO of DERMALOG. „With these innovations, we are reacting to the rising demand for multifunctional identification systems and in so doing, we can demonstrate our expertise in the development of high-quality and innovative technological concepts. Our technology already enjoys a high level of acceptance and is becoming increasingly implemented worldwide. With our extensive research and development programs, we are confident we will consistently deliver INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES and that this trend continues in future.“
