Multimodal Biometric and Access Control Platform

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Our platform purpose is to join different biometric verification technologies such as fingerprint, iris and face recognition. The introduction of multimodal (combined) biometrics in access control systems are providing the flexibility needed for design sophisticated scenarios and to expand the standard security procedures with different levels of access control rights where least intrusive techniques (i.e. face verification) are used for accessing the least critical supervised spaces thus respecting the person’s privacy and to be compromised to ethical issues of using sensitive personal data. On the other hand, we can introduce several verification levels in order to eliminate the possibility of counterfeit (i.e. Artificial "Gummy" Fingers on Fingerprint Systems).

A potential disadvantage of access control systems based on multimodal biometrics is that several technologies and different hardware providers are involved. This fact increases the complexity for both designing and implementing enterprise – level software solutions. Thus our platform if fully compromise with BioAPI standards by developing Biometric Service Providers (BSPs) in order to expand the hardware driver provided by the manufacturer into a fully functional and reusable software module which implements the standard verification procedures, with all the “device level” details to be hidden by the application programmer.
