Optical technology offers superior image quality
- High performance sensor: 500 dpi, 256 grey levels
- Available output formats include RAW, ISO 19794-
4 or WSQcompressed (under license) images
Large acquisition surface for optimized capture and repeatable placement MSO 1300 Series capture surface (14x22mm) ensures that the richest area on fingerprints is systematically captured time after time. Acquisition surface contributes significantly to the overall biometric performance: It determines the amount of minutiae data that can be captured Other, smaller sensors, allow different areas of the same finger to be presented with each placement, leading to poor data acquisition, narrow areas of overlap and matching errors
Lessons learnt from real world deployments put into practice Mechanical/visual guides ensure intuitive finger placement Interfaces display key information to help users: live image, messages (position, pressure etc.) and fingerprint quality score
More than sensors, intelligent devices While most sensors on the market are only capable of producing fingerprint images, the MSO 1300 Series devices are also capable of processing them internally, running powerful algorithms directly on their embedded processor.
1 Image Compression using WSQ algorithm from FBI/NIST
2 Biometric Feature Extraction to generate templates Feature Extractor is MINEX/FIPS 201 compliant Proprietary, ISO 19794-2 or ANSI 378 template formats available Templates can be stored in the internal database
3 Biometric Matching Matcher is MINEX/FIPS 201 compliant 1:1 authentication or 1:N identification High accuracy: the False Acceptance Rate (FAR) is configurable down to 10-8 (depending on the security requirements) and maintained regardless of number of users in database Fast matching (refer to the table entitled “2 designs, 4 variants”) Match-on-Card is available on MSO 1350 V3 / MSO 1350 E3
4 Capability of addressing juvenile fingers
5 An anti-latency feature detects fingerprint traces reactivated under certain lighting conditions
Embedded security features
When sensitive data (image or template) needs to be shared with a Host System, the MSO 1300 Series devices are capable of securing them before dispatching.
1 Multiple security principles available:
Symmetric and asymmetric keys, Key derivation, Hashing algorithm, Random number generator, etc.
2 Image and Template Encryption for the sake of confidentiality
3 Template Signature (X9.84 standard) to guarantee the origin and the integrity of the data sent to the Host System
