Automated Biometric Identification System

Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS)

An Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) for Large-Scale Biometric Identification and Deduplication Using Fingerprint, Face, and Iris Recognition

AwareABIS™

Is an Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) used for large-scale biometric identification and deduplication using fingerprint, face, and iris recognition. It is a highly scalable platform that performs one-to-many search or one-to-one match against large stores of biometrics and other identity data. It does so by deploying biometric data and matching algorithms across a cluster of multiple computing nodes.

Extremely large biometric databases (tens of millions of records) cannot be stored or efficiently searched on a single computer. Distributing the data and biometric comparison tasks across multiple machines enables even extremely large databases to be searched in only seconds. AwareABIS™ enables not only massive biometric search tasks but complex filter, search, match, and link operations critical to data preparation and quality assurance functions such as identity resolution and data deduplication.

Knomi Server

Knomi Server is the component of the Knomi mobile biometric authentication framework that can be integrated with identity servers to quickly enable them with password-free multifactor authentication (MFA) using biometrics on a mobile device.

For organizations using an identity and access management (IAM) platform to implement secure access control, SSO, and federation for employees or customers, adding Knomi enables users to login to assets normally accessible by PC or browser with a username and password by instead biometrically authenticating on their mobile device in an “out-of-band” fashion. Knomi Server has been integrated with several leading identity and access management products. Any enterprise can integrate Knomi to enhance their identity platform with multifactor authentication using out-of-band mobile biometrics, making login to their online assets more secure and convenient for their employees.
