  1. 1. BIOMETRICAL IDENTITY MULTI-MODAL SOLUTIONS
  2. 2. BIMS BIOMETRIC DATA ACQUISITION BIMS Biometric Data Acquisition is an application for persons’ biographical and biometrical data collection in real time or from existing file (pictures, ten print cards etc.) and transmission to Central Biometric System, with persons’ verification and identification functionality. Application provides unified and intuitive user interface, in order to quickly and easily collect biographical and biometrical data to person case, and send it to central system. Biometric data enrollment, identification and verification does not bring the best impact if the quality of the captured data is not assessed right. Therefore BIMS Biometric Data Acquisition application conducts automatic quality assessment and control in real-time of obtained biometrical elements, as well as performs duplicate and elements consistency check, and obtained biometrical data segmentation. • The BIMS application can be used by any authorized organization to perform biometrical data collection, as well as to identify or verify person. • Mostly current application is being used by police stations to register new criminals and collect their biometrical data. • The application is very useful for document issuing organizations, to collect civil person’s data.
  3. 3. The main application advantage is that it is not dependent from any specific hardware manufacturer for biometrical data collection, or biometrical algorithms providers, which allows to use and integrate application with different devices and algorithms. As well one of the application functions provides the ability to automatically add person to centralized wanted person list, or check it in background mode against this list, when the new biometrical data or person case is being enrolled to the system. The application encapsulates all of the person’s data and supported biometry data in a NIST 2011 file standardized by the ANSI/NIST organization. In addition application has the management functionality for the centralized wanted person list and automatic alert system. Therefore the provided functionality allows to add new person cases to the wanted person list, as well as to modify and delete current cases from the list. Also, its functionality provides the ability to control the automatic alert system, which sends out the notifications (e-mail, SMS) to different law enforcement organizations or person’s about the possible matches, in order to allow them to focus on the identified wanted person. Benefits of the BIMS Biometric Data Acquisition application: • Unified platform for multiple biometric modalities; • Not dependent from any specific hardware manufacturers or biometrical algorithms providers; • Adjustable biometric quality thresholds for many needs; • Biometric data transmission files standardized by the ANSI/NIST organization for a secured data transfer; • Watchlist feature for centralized wanted people list management functionality; • Automatic alerting system by e-mail or SMS when a wanted person is detected.
  4. 4. BIMS IDENTITY CASE MANAGEMENT APPLICATION BIMS Identity Case Management application is centralized control and monitoring tool of all biometrical identities collected and stored in Central Biometric System. The main functionality of it allows to resolve different biometrical and biographical conflicts, to search and compare person cases, and also to modify and delete person cases. As well the current application automatically saves and stores history of each person case changes, which enables to see how, when and by whom the person case has been modified. In addition the BIMS Identity Case Management application provides cooperation and data exchange with experts which allows, for example, to send two person cases for comparison to biometrical data expert, and to receive expert conclusion about the similarity of both cases. Also the BIMS application provides person identification in Central Biometric System and other external systems. For example, the Identity Case Management application is integrated to exchange data with PRÜM and EURODAC systems, and can be extended for data exchange with other systems as well. With the BIMS Identity Case Management application the customer acquires the ability to use: • Person case biographical search. • Person case biometrical identification. • Person case viewing. • Person case editing. • Biometric data conflict situation processing. • Not-processed person case selection, and hanging for viewing and processing. • Incomplete biographical data processing. • Person case comparison. • Person case deletion request approval. • Approval of person case biometric element deletion. • Person case biographical information change history. • Person case change history (attribute data changes). • Person biometrical identification request processing and cooperation with external systems.
  5. 5. Identity Case Management application is mainly used by organizations with a Central Biometric Systems which collects and processes biometric data. It is used to solve identity conflicts and manage biometric and biographical identities. The application can interact with biometric expert software – such as BIMS Finger and Face Expert applications.
  6. 6. BIMS MOBILE ID BIMS Mobile ID is used as an application on mobile devices (smart phones or special mobile devices) to perform real time and any place person basic identification or verification processes using finger print and face image. Therefore the application can be widely used by different law enforcement organizations, for example, police officers, in order to establish arrested person’s identity at the crime scene or in the medicine and ambulance work, for example, to identify unconscious person’s identity or to identify unknown corpse during the medical expertise at the crime scene. In addition the application provides the ability to store wanted person list locally on the device with options of synchronisation to central system which allows to identify/verify person in an offline mode. The special mobile devices contain multiple compactly combined equipment for biometric data – scanner for fingerprints, camera for face images and a slot for reading smart cards. The Android interface is known to large part of users, but the mobile internet connection brings the possibility to use the device almost from any place possible. Additional features offer the full benefits of geolocation based provided by built-in GPS, time stamping and other location services. If needs for mobile identification solution requires more biometric modalities than fingerprints and face recognition, we offer multimodal biometric recognition to the current set. BIMS Mobile ID can be used at the scene of crime or for civil identification on the street or airport. This device includes fingerprints, face image and iris recognition. For police officers the device can be a great help when establishing arrested person’s identity. BIMS Mobile ID allows enrolling, identifying and verifying a person by single slap fingerprint, rolled fingerprints and dual fingerprints recognition. This device can always be “on-person”, so border control employees can use the device to prevent criminals leaving the country. The benefits of mobile identification bring the users efficient person identification means independently from location and time.
  7. 7. BIMS VERIFICATION AGAINST IDENTITY DOCUMENT BIMS application for Verification against Identity Document provides the real time person identity check. The application based on the biometrical document (passport, e-ID card) scans the person data and compares it against the live biometric data acquired from person (using biometrical data scanner) who is presenting the document. Current application can be widely used by different governmental institutions, border control and customs (for example, at airport and e-gates), by banks and other organizations, in order to efficiently check if person is legal document holder. As well application can be used in election process to verify voter’s identity and eligibility to vote. BIMS Verification against Identity Document application is presented in multiple forms based on different customer needs: • Desktop application – for government offices. • Mobile application – for mobile devices to carry “on-person”. • Stationary electronic gates on premises – for buildings and public events. For mobile solution of Verification against Identity Document BIMS already offers a product called BIMS Mobile ID. It combines verification by multimodal biometric data – fingerprints and face image, the same modalities incorporated in most passports, international travel documents and ID cards. BIMS Verification against Identity Document could have a significant impact on the election process if such solution would be used. The voter’s identity is verified according to the biometric information contained in the identity document and his/her eligibility to participate in the elections is checked in a centralized voters’ register.

BIMS BIOMETRIC DATA MIGRATION DPA has performed multiple biometric data migrations for government institutions from their registers  – civil registry, registry of Road Traffic Safety Directorate, police biometric registers (face records, criminal AFIS), etc. The automated fingerprint information system (AFIS) has been migrated while other processes evaluated the person files, compared them and determined the duplicates – a process that cleaned the information system from unnecessary data. The experience gained from such projects gave the knowledge and understanding of biometric databases and the correlation between identities and the biometric data quality describing the biometric themselves. BIMS Migration tools offer migrating paper based fingerprints (dactylocards) to digital form. By scanning the dactylocards with a fast scanning station can provide large printed sheet information to automated fingerprint information systems. Such printed sheet fast scanning station: • Can scan up to 500 fingerprints per hour. • Checks print data quality in real time. • Returns high resolution images: 500 or 1000 dpi.
  19. 19. BIMS AUTOMATED DOCUMENT ISSUANCE The BIMS Automated Document Issuance is a solution for civil biometric data enrollment for the purpose of renewing an electronic ID (eID), biometric passport, driver’s licence or any other type of document containing biometric data. Solution uses communication with the Central Biometric System. A traditional card issuance model is when a citizen enrolls his/her data into a system, then an official validates the person and submits a request for a document production. After the document is produced, it is sent handed to the citizen at the office or sent by mail. After that the citizen activates the document, if necessary. This model poses risk of lost or stolen document in the delivery phase. The traditional model is optimized by adding self-service kiosks and document dispensers. The BIMS Automated Document Issuance solution offers a multimodal biometric enrollment and verification in one application. The citizen can specify a phone number and/or e-mail address which will be used to notify the citizen about the status of the document and the location of the nearest document dispenser where the documents is sent. • The user can enroll most popular biometric modalities supported in biometric passports and other documents – fingerprints, face and iris. • In a secure link the validated biometric and biographic information is sent to the production facility. • Once produced, the cards are placed in a secure cartridges, ready for distribution. • The citizen, after being notified, retrieves the card in a previously specified document dispenser located in most convenient locations.
  20. 20. Benefits brought to the customer by acquiring such automated civil document issuance solution: • Improve waiting and processing times. • Reduce biometric data inconsistency and unconformity (pose, face expression, and others). • Eliminate problems with the integration of components from different providers. • Reduce errors caused by manual procedures. • Improve the robustness of existing solutions for public places. • Reduce the environment impact on performance and quality. • Easier to use by citizens and operators. • Improve the capacity of the document delivery process. • Enhance security and efficiency in the document distribution chain. • Self-service and automated document delivery solution. • Biometric enrollment and document delivery integrated in a single unit • Reduce waiting times per citizen to obtain a document.
