Oslo, Norway, 14 August 2019: IDEX Biometrics ASA, the leading provider of advanced fingerprint identification and authentication solutions, confirms that its patented on-card enrollment solution was used successfully as part of the certification process for a global payment scheme and exceeded the biometric standards required for certification.

The on-card remote enrollment sleeve was used by an independent third-party testing house to gather ‘real-world’ fingerprint images. The results of the image-capture data from the tests far exceeded the FRR (“False Rejection Rate”) and FAR (False Acceptance Rate”) benchmarks required for certification. 

Stan Swearingen, CEO of IDEX Biometrics: “It is generally accepted that a convenient, easy to use on-card enrollment solution is key to broad adoption of biometric cards and the quality of the enrollment is critical to biometric performance. These results not only show the power of IDEX’s biometric sensor technology, they are also a strong validation of the value proposition of IDEX’s unique on-card remote enrollment solution. We look forward to this solution being an integral part of our customers’ deployment of biometric smart cards.”
