Smart card firm Cardlogix has added biometric capability to its microprocessor smart card development platform, M.O.S.T. Toolz.A “Biometric Series” of the M.O.S.T. Toolz platform will now capture and writes interoperable fingerprint data to a microprocessor smart card.CardLogix' contact and contactless M.O.S.T. Cards are used for applications such as passports, citizen ids, voting, law enforcement, and healthcare IDsThe biometric cards are compliant with ICAO and ISO/IEC interoperability standards for smart cards and biometrics and extracts raw fingerprint images.The platform features fingerprint to smart card demonstration software with programming examples, and CBEFF header creation demonstration software with programming examples.The platform also allows for the creation of ANSI 378 and MINEX-compliant templates, candidate grading with minutia points, WSQ compression and the verification against a finger file in the card (validation).
