Government Solutions

Most countries are already employing or planning to employ biometric technologies for nationwide identification projects. Stricter security requirements for border control, the growth of identity theft and regulatory compliance are driving the need for biometric identification. Another important driver for strong authentication is the need to comply with stringent government requirements related to data privacy. This is particularly important as federal, state and local governments encourage the use of public online services in order to reduce costs and enhance convenience.

Biometrics are already being used in the production of internal identification documents such aspassports and/or national ID-cards, social security, healthcare cards, driver’s licenses and migrant cards issued to foreigners or stateless persons. Biometric identification increases accuracy and reliability, since these techniques arebased on physical characteristics that stay constant throughout one’s lifetime and are difficult to forge or change.

The BioGuard solution helps government agencies to securecitizens’ personal data and eliminate attempts to use lost and/or stolen identification documents.These types of documents can be embedded with smart chips containing biometric data, such as fingerprints, facial images, and palm vein patterns. Using a combination of advanced biometric identification technologies, the Bio ID Management™ platform is an ideal solution for such applications. In addition to its accuracy, biometric authentication is quick, saving travelers time in line and reducing the number of personnel required for manual passport checking.

Operating as stand-alone systems or as part of a network, the Bio ID Management™ platform is a strong multi factor identification server, integrating several biometric identification technologies to ensure the highest level of reliability and security. It enables governments to introduce secure, time-saving online services to the public, combat misuse of counterfeit documents, protect citizens from cybercrime and terrorism, and secure borders against illegal immigration.
