The IWS Biometric Engine is available as part of a Web-based, biometric enrollment and identity verification application.
It is also available as a software developer’s kit (SDK) that enables system integrators to build custom identity verification applications or incorporate biometric enrollment, search and authentication functionality into existing applications.
The IWS Biometric Engine conducts 1:1 biometric searches to verify an individual's identity; 1:n searches to identify an individual within a population; and x:n investigative searches against watch lists and/or black lists.
It is agnostic in biometric algorithm and hardware and can manage tens of millions of individuals using standard off-the-shelf hardware, minimizing the cost of ownership.
Most importantly, the IWS Biometric Engine provides undisputable proof of identity across large-scale populations and distributed enterprises conveniently, inexpensively and securely.
The IWS Biometric Engine can be integrated into a variety of applications that can be deployed in a wide array of industries, such as: Driver License Systems National ID Systems Airport Security Border Control Systems Voter Identity Verification Access Control and Facilities Management Law Enforcement Systems Amusement & Events.
The IWS Biometric Engine is based on field-proven IWS technology that has been used to manage millions of biometric templates and algorithms for virtually all leading biometric types including: Finger—civil Finger—livescan Face—civil Face—NIST-compliant mug shots Iris—civil Hand Geometry Palm—NIST Signature Voice 3D Face.
