Summary of Benefits for Multi-Site Biometric Deployments

Many large scale biometric systems with multiple enrolment and verification sites are currently being deployed for automated border control, expedited traveller processing and biometric visa issuance. Agencies deploying these systems typically try and procure an accurate biometric solution from a well established provider and then may even test the solution during the procurement phase or as part of a trial during initial deployment. Occasionally, the agency will hire consultants and spend a significant amount of time and energy to try and measure the performance of the system during normal deployed operations. This type of operational testing is helpful, but it only gives a snapshot of the system’s performance at a moment in time.

Bion BPT is a framework consisting of an application, a database and an intelligent report generation tool which reside on a server and are interfaced with the data acquisition and biometric algorithms associated with the system being tested. BPT then provides a simple GUI which a manager who is not an expert in biometric testing can use to indicate the components of the system which they are interested in (different sites, different demographic groups, different date ranges, etc.). The BPT software stores either all or a certain percentage of data from individuals using the system in its internal database and once a test is selected, it replays suitable subsets of that data to generate full biometric performance metrics, including failure to enroll, failure to acquire, generalized false accept rate and generalized false reject rate. It then generates Excel spreadsheets with detailed data and a full report in Word with summaries of relevant performance metrics from every enrolment and verification site and, if sufficient data is present, from every individual biometric appliance. All of this is done automatically and the finished report contains simple summaries that can be reviewed by managers to understand the system’s performance and to identify any problem areas.

Bion BPT can be configured to automatically generate a report every week or month so that performance trends can be measured and any sites with unusual performance can be identified. This is vital for ongoing management and maintenance of a system since there are many factors which can cause performance of an individual site or an individual appliance to change and if these are not identified in time, it can cause both degraded user experience (through increased FTE, FTA or GFRR) or, in the worst case, degraded security (through increased GFAR). Such problems can be caused by infrastructure changes (new duty free shop in an airport causing illumination problems for iris or facial cameras for instance), environmental changes (start of monsoon season for a visa enrolment centre in India, when all fingers presented to the fingerprint sensors will be much more moist than normal), degradation of equipment over time (all illumination sources in all biometric systems have an illumination output which varies over their lifetime and performance is degraded long before failure occurs) or even from changes in staff. Only BPT allows the performance issues caused by all of these problems and any others to be identified as soon as they occur so that the situation can be addressed before significant degradation in security or convenience occurs, BPT can also show how match thresholds should be set to achieve particular performance goals, even if the match threshold needs to be different at different sites because of specific issues at each site. Normal manual testing at this level is both exceptionally costly (due to the large number of consultants required) and, for very large systems, unsustainable as the amount of data to be processed becomes too great. By making all steps of the process from test design to writing the report automatic, BPT is the only solution that allows true ongoing monitoring of large scale, multi-site biometric systems.

Product description:

Speed Capture G3 is the 3rd generation integrated biometric data enrollment system for e-passports, visas, driving licenses and ID documents where security, reliability and useability are critical.

All-in-one Solution
The Speed Capture G3 is a complete solution for capturing biographic and biometric data including face photography, fingerprints and signature, in an all-digital workflow. The system is prepared for Iris-capture and its modular design allows for integration of a wide range of input sensors and quality-control software. Full interactivity and self-service mode is possible through the integrated touch screen and built-in audio hardware support.

High Quality Biometric Data
The Speed Capture API includes quality-check software to ensure ICAO and ISO complian- ce for face photography and NIST/BMS-compliance for fingerprints. In a typical applica- tion, fingerprint, signature and face photo files are retrieved by the host system from the G3 after the quality check algorithms have been applied, so that all data leaving the G3 match pre-defined levels of quality.

Secure Intact Digital Chain
In a robust workflow set-up, the biometric data, captured on the G3 is matched with the applicant so that biometric data is securely tied to the applicant, with no possibility of tampering with the data. The concept of “Live Enrollment” is critical, as any files from out- side sources, such as print photographs, may have been manipulated. The efficient and secure all-digital workflow for biometric ID documents ensures an unbroken digital chain.

Software and Integration
The Speed Capture API software pack controls all input sensors, quality parameters and file formats and the entire system integrates easily with the host application of national authorities and corporations using standard programming interfaces. The software platform is based on a secure web service.

HandPunch® GT-400 by Ingersoll-Rand Security Technologies


Product name:

HandPunch® GT-400

Product version:

GT-400 (standard model w/ Ethernet)

Product type:

Integrated Product

Biometric modality/type:

Hand Geometry

Biometric sample acquisition sensor type:

n/a

Intended applications:

  • Time and Attendance
  • Vendor specified: Manufacturing, Grocery, Healthcare, Hospitality, Restaurants, Retail

Product description:

The HandPunch™ GT-400 is one of the most important solutions for effective workforce management. With the HandPunch you can improve record-keeping accuracy, mitigate risk, increase employee productivity and provide greater peace of mind for yourself and your employees. Coupled with a software provider, the HandPunch GT-400 delivers tangible benefits every day. In fact, when used properly the initial cost of the HandPunch GT-400 can be paid back in less than nine months.
  • Increased up-time – upgrade remotely by downloading new firmware and application functionality through an Ethernet connection; there is no need to remove the device from the wall or disrupt productivity.
  • Improved serviceability – remote diagnostic capability allows for troubleshooting maintenance without removing the device from the wall.
  • Employee self-service kiosk – programmable, ATM-style kiosk has soft keys and a large display field that allows information like lists and personal messages to be displayed.
  • Real-time communication – access information in real time with push technology.
  • Open architecture design – Linux-based operating system ensures programming flexibility.
  • Antimicrobial protection – antimicrobial coating embedded in the platen, keypad and plastics inhibits the growth of bacteria.
How the HandPunch Works The HandPunch GT-400 uses the size and shape of each employee’s hand for verification, so it’s fast, easy and efficient. The user’s hand can still be read even if it’s dirt, wet, greasy, dusty, swollen or dry, making it an effective solution in a wide range of applications. The HandPunch also provides a host of benefits for your business.
  • Reduced payroll and administration costs – because punch-in and punch-out data is read and recorded at the point of entry, translation of timecards is eliminated, along with any discrepancies between time worked and time reported.
  • Eliminates time fraud – since every user’s hand is unique, the HandPunch eliminates costly and fraudulent “buddy punching.”
  • More productive and informed workforce – verification takes place in about one second; during that process the communication panel can display relevant messages to employees, promoting communication with management.
