HID Global’s Multispectral Fingerprint Technology Receives Second Perfect Score in Global Fake-Finger Compliance Tests

AUSTIN, Texas, July 16, 2019 – HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced that a second member of its family of Lumidigm® multispectral imaging solutions has achieved a perfect score in the world’s only International Standards Organization (ISO) standard that focuses on anti-spoofing and liveness detection. The company’s latest certification to the ISO/IEC 30107-3 Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) standard to level 1 further validates HID Global Lumidigm sensors’ ability to authenticate only a real, living person and not a plastic fake or other artificial copy, helping eliminate fraud.

“HID’s proven V-Series multispectral technology was the first fingerprint product to receive a perfect score in the most stringent certification test in the world, and now we have extended that certification to our M-Series devices,” said Michael Chaudoin, Vice President of Product Marketing, Extended Access Technologies business area with HID Global. “This is the most important certification for those needing independent validation that their biometric solution meets a very specific set of liveness-detection standards with the lowest tolerance for failures.”

Now compliant to the ISO/IEC 30107-3 level 1 standard, HID Global’s Lumidigm M-Series sensors join the company’s V-Series sensors to give users the confidence of standards-validated spoof protection for a broad range of biometric authentication applications.

The flagship Lumidigm V-Series sensors were the first in the industry to be compliant to the rigid ISO PAD standard. The sensors have been proven in large-scale banking applications, such as ATM deployments and employee network access, that depend on data encryption and tamper resistance capabilities to protect sensitive data and cryptography keys, which helps eliminate fraud. 

The M-Series sensors provide a risk-appropriate option for time-and-attendance, single sign on, physical access control and other applications that don’t require the V-Series sensors’ full range of advanced features, but still benefit from strong liveness protection.

In addition to delivering NIST-compliant liveness detection, the Lumidigm sensors’ multispectral imaging technology provides the most reliable capture performance available in harsh real-world environmental conditions and when fingers are wet, dry or damaged. Both sensors detected 100 percent of spoof attempts while correctly authenticating all legitimate users in tests administered by iBeta Quality Assurance and certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). Each of the Lumidigm sensors use the company’s patented multispectral fingerprint imaging technology to capture unique characteristics from the surface and subsurface of the finger that are analyzed to confirm it is legitimate and from a live person.

HID Global’s Lumidigm sensors are part of the company’s expanding biometrics portfolio that addresses a broad range of authentication use cases and vertical markets.  Additional biometrics offerings include:

  • HID® Digital Persona® optical fingerprint readers designed for point-of-sale, retail and desktop applications as well as for users requiring certification to FIPS 201/PIV and FBI Mobile ID FAP 30 standards.
  • HID TouchChip® fingerprint modules and readers include the FIPS 201/PIV and India STQC-certified TouchChip TCS1 devices that are ideal for ID verification in civil ID and entitlement programs, electronic prescriptions of controlled substances (EPCS) in healthcare, mobile ID terminals and mobile point of sale systems.
