Suprema Fingerprint Scanner Receives Final STQC Certification for India's UID Project

Seoul, Feb 7, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Suprema, Inc., a global leader in biometrics and ID solutions, announced today that the company's latest BioMini Plus(SFU500) fingerprint scanner tested in full compliance and received final certification from the Government of India's STQC (Standardization Testing & Quality Certification) for the country's UID (Unique ID, India's next generation national ID) based fingerprint authentication demands. The STQC certification is an essential requirement for procurements of the UID project and ensures devices to satisfy API specifications presented by UIDAI. The STQC provides quality assurance services in IT and electronics through its countrywide network of laboratories.

BioMini Plus is a compact fingerprint scanner which provides range-leading capture speed and clear image quality by using the company's advanced optical image processing technology. Along with its recently-added STQC certification, the device has been approved by several global standards including FBI PIV-IQS and FIPS 201 certifications.

The BioMini Plus also features Suprema's unique 'hybrid type' live finger detection (LFD) technology. "The technology is based on the fact that dynamic image characteristics of the fake fingers from the scanner can be distinguished from those of live fingers. By the advanced analysis algorithm to catch the abnormalities in dynamic changing pattern of fingerprints images and static features such as ridge patterns and local intensity distribution, fake fingers are clearly distinguished from those of live fingers. This new LFD technology provides effective solution to protect the fingerprint system from attack via fake fingerprints," said Brian Song, CTO at Suprema.

"BioMini Plus has been specially developed to meet high-level requirements for India's UID authentication project which demands fast and high quality image capturing and extra durability in India's harsh environments. The device also features dust and waterproof rugged structure with IP65 level protection on its sensor surface. Key technology in BioMini Plus is based on our in-depth expertise in biometrics and image processing as well as our years of experience in large-scale government and public projects," Song added.

With the acquisition of final STQC certification and the company's hands-on expertise from UID Enrollment and NPR projects in India, Suprema plans to continue its success on upcoming UID Authentication projects in India. In recent years, Suprema's live scanners have been chosen for several worldwide civil and criminal ID projects in the United States, India, Brazil, EU and African countries.
