Cutting-edge automated fast and accurate biometric matching for civil registries and law enforcement agencies

Biometrics Solutions

The efficacy of an identity management solution depends on the reliability and integrity of its database. It is thus crucial that there should be no duplicate records in the system. This is achieved by various biometric identifiers that correspond to a person uniquely. Quantifiable biometric characteristics include fingerprint, face, iris and palm print. Often multi-modal biometrics are used to enhance the integrity of a system.

Automated Fingerprint Identification System

The most common biometric used in automated identification is the fingerprint. TigerIT’s Automated Fingerprint Identification System, TigerAFIS, is certified by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The speed and accuracy of its proprietary fingerprint matching technique makes it suitable for very large scale (millions records) de-duplications. TigerAFIS is currently used for a total of over 500 million records with an average of 500,000 transactions performed daily all over the world.

  • Ranked #1 in NIST MINEX 2009
  • Ranked among top 3 in NIST PFT Tests in US POE / POEBVA Datasets
  • Ranked #1 for Lowest EER in FVC-OnGoing (as of Aug ’11)
  • Accuracy of 99.9% for two fingers

Our implemented technology to create WSQ images for fingerprint meets FBI and NIST accuracy requirements as specified in WSQ Gray-Scale Fingerprint Image Compression Specification Version 3.1. It matches the criteria for 500ppi grayscale image, 8 bits per pixel (256) at 5:1 and 15:1 target compression ratios. This enables our clients to be sure they are getting a top-tier WSQ solution.

Latent Fingerprint/Palm print

TigerAFIS technology allows law enforcement agencies to obtain and store latent print images from a variety of sources including scanners, high resolution digital cameras, and industry standard digital image formats. Its latent print image enhancement tool simplifies the verification and editing process including finger/palm print rotation, image reversal, contrast/brightness adjustments and comprehensive search and review.

  • The image enhancement tool can load ten print card
  • Detect the ROI of the fingerprints and user can manually correct the ROI if needed
  • The minutiae are automatically detected
  • Matched image can be showed side by side for manual examination
  • Similarly palm print can be enhanced, searched and examined. It supports partial palm print.

Face Recognition System

With a detection accuracy nearly 100%, TigerIT’s proprietary face matching technique is used for both verification (1:1) and identification (1:N). Its adjustable learning based Matching System is aided by robust facial feature localization that extracts facial features in different illumination and environmental conditions and generates an optimal face template.

  • Fast enrolling speed – 10 enrollments per core-second
  • Ultra-fast matching speed – 3,000,000 matches per core-second
  • Matching accuracy
  • ~0.37% at FAR 0.001 for ICAO standardized images
  • ~1.27% at FAR 0.001 for any recognized frontal face databases (Non ICAO standard)
  • Support for recognized image formats including JPEG2000 format
  • Field adjustable image resolution support

Iris Integration

TigerIT has been ranked second in the Iris Exchange (IREX) IX Part One: Performance of Iris Recognition evaluation released by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA in April, 2018. We integrate Iris capture and matching algorithms to support

  • Robust iris detection
  • Automatic interlacing detection and correction
  • Correct iris segmentation
  • Standard Compatibility - ISO 19794-6 (2005, 2010)
