South Korean biometrics firm Suprema’s BioMini Plus 2 fingerprint authentication scanner has been tested to be in full compliance and received a UIDAI Registered Device Level 0 certification from the Government of India’s STQC (Standardization Testing & Quality Certification).
The STQC certification is an essential requirement for procurement of India government’s nationwide UID project and ensures devices satisfy API specifications presented by UIDAI. The recently introduced ‘UIDAI Registered Device Level 0’ certification heightens level of security of biometric data with encryption and digital signature.
Designed for both PC and mobile based fingerprint authentication, BioMini Plus 2 provides loads of innovative features to enhance its image quality, performance and mobile-readiness. Unique to the industry, Suprema’s patented Multi Dynamic Range (MDR) technology guarantees high-quality image capture even with extreme conditions (operates under direct sunlight up to 100,000 LUX) regardless of the moisture level of captured finger skin. The MDR technology is especially developed for mobile environment where there are greater dynamics in lighting and moisture conditions.
BioMini Plus 2 now provides enhanced levels of anti-spoofing security with a proprietary machine learning based live fingerprint detection (LFD) technology. This technology was developed to overcome inherent limitations of conventional scanners by applying machine learning methods that analyze and categorize image patterns according to optical characteristics of various possible fake fingerprint materials. With this new technology, BioMini Plus 2 effectively eliminates fraud, using various fake fingerprint materials such as clay, rubber and silicon. BioMini Plus comes in an OEM module version for hardware integration as the SFU-550.
“BioMini Plus 2 has been specially developed to meet stringent requirements for the India government’s UIDAI projects which demand fast and high quality image capturing. In addition, with its compatibility to Android systems, mobile-oriented MDR technology, and anti-spoofing LFD, we are confident to gain further market share over UIDAI projects as well as fast-emerging biometric identification projects in many countries,” said Bogun Park, CEO at Suprema ID.
