Anti-spoofing and liveness detection specialist NexID has announcedthat shipments of version 2.0 of its fake-finger-detection (FFD) solution have begun.The company, based in Potsdam, N.Y., made the announcement at the three-day Connect:ID Expo, which began on Monday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.NexID said version 2.0 of its SDK boosts the accuracy rate range to 96.5 to 99.5 percent in catching bogus identification attempts across a variety of fingerprint-sensor types, such as touch or swipe, and technologies including optical, capacitance, and other emerging fingerprint sensor technologies.”Our ongoing research has yielded additional fingerprint-imaging features that are highly effective in differentiating images captured from authentic versus fake fingerprints,” said NexID Chief Operating Officer Mark Cornett. “In essence, we have expanded our portfolio of fingerprint-imaging features and that translates into higher accuracy. We're not aware of any software-based, fingerprint spoofing-mitigation technology today that's more rigorous and effective than NexID's latest software improvement.”With shipments of version 2.0 now occurring, Cornett expects to see NexID's FFD solution in both traditional scanners and mobile devices coming to market in the second half of this year.
