Dermalog sets world record for fingerprint software


German biometrics firm DERMALOG Identification Systems has released the next generation of its AFIS. 

Test body SGS-TÜV Saar has confirmed that the software allows the processing of almost one billion matches per second. 

In a statement, the firm said that after many years of research, the developers and engineers have "succeeded" in perfecting their recognition system for fingerprints.

The world record for fingerprint matching is now 914,959,533 in one second per standard blade server.

DERMALOG will be showcasing its latest biometric innovations from 29 November to 1 December at TRUSTECH 2016 in Cannes - on stand RIVIERA L020.

DERMALOG founder and managing director Günther Mull: "As the speed of fingerprint matching increases, maintaining accuracy is a challenge. However, there is no loss of quality with our AFIS. The experts from SGS-TÜV Saar have confirmed that the quality of our AFIS is outstanding in terms of both coding and matching."

AFIS is one of DERMALOG's core products. The success story has quite a history. The state of Rio de Janeiro has been combating duplicate or false identities with a DERMALOG solution for more than 15 years. AFIS has been instrumental in promoting networking between authorities. The AFIS for Rio is also the first AFIS in Brazil to be used for civil and criminal identification.

As a multi-biometrics provider, DERMALOG is able to link the AFIS fingerprinting system to other biometric parameters. For example, iris and face recognition can be used for multi-modal identification. Günther Mull: "We are a developer, a manufacturer and a system integrator all in one. DERMALOG is the biometrics innovation leader and our products are made in Germany. We stand for the fulfilment of the highest safety requirements and intuitive operation."
