Neurotechnology announced MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 Software Development Kits (SDK). MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 SDK features fingerprint, facial and new iris on-card matching engines based on the high-precision MegaMatcher identification algorithms. With MegaMatcher OnCard, tri-modal verification on smartcards is now possible, providing the highest degree of accuracy and flexibility available for smartcard biometric solutions.
With the new MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 SDK, the fingerprint, face and iris biometric algorithms in MegaMatcher 4.2 have been optimized to run within the restricted computational capabilities of smartcard microprocessors. The introduction of integrated, on-card iris biometrics provides a third, trustworthy modality that offers higher off-line authentication reliability for card owners as well as providing more flexibility when one of the biometric modalities may not be available.
MegaMatcher On Card also provides more flexibility in the choice of smart cards. Through partnerships with different card vendors, Neurotechnology’s on-card solution is now available on a wider range of integrated circuit card (ICC) platforms running either Java or proprietary native OS within different microcontrollers.
MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 features and capabilities:
- A wide range of card-side matching engine configurations allows users to choose the optimal settings for different card types and specific project requirements.
- The pure Java-level configuration may be loaded on a card within its life cycle. The native ROM-masked implementation provides enhanced reliability, performance, memory saving and makes the product applicable for large-scale, high volume projects.
- Utilization of smart card and on-card biometric matching-related ISO standards and Java Card specifications allows easy development of on-card verification applications that maintain the security of the cardholder reference data.
- Inclusion of card-side and PC-side sample applications that demonstrate enrollment and verification of supported modalities on a smart card provide ease of integration.
Because of its unified API, MegaMatcher On Card can be easily integrated with systems that are based on any other Neurotechnology SDK, including VeriFinger, VeriLook, VeriEye or multi-biometric MegaMatcher deployments.
MegaMatcher technology is used in a wide variety of biometric solutions worldwide for national-scale projects, including border control, passport and visa documentation, election control, criminal investigations, duplicate searches in large-scale databases and a range of other government and commercial applications. The MegaMatcher fingerprint recognition algorithm is NIST MINEX-compliant for use in US Government Personal Identity Verification (PIV) program fingerprint recognition applications and it supports most biometric industry standards.
