Suprema ID Receives STQC/UIDAI Level 0 Certification for BioMini Plus 2 Fingerprint Authentication Scanner

Seoul, May 11, 2018 – Suprema ID, a global leader in biometrics and ID solutions, announced today that the company's latest BioMini Plus 2 fingerprint authentication scanner tested in full compliance and received UIDAI Registered Device Level 0 certification from the Government of India's STQC (Standardization Testing & Quality Certification. The STQC certification is an essential requirement for procurements of India government’s nationwide UID project and ensures devices to satisfy API specifications presented by UIDAI. The recently introduced ‘UIDAI Registered Device Level 0’ certification heightens level of security of biometric data with encryption and digital signature.

Designed for both PC and mobile based fingerprint authentication, BioMini Plus 2 provides loads of innovative features to enhance its image quality, performance and mobile-readiness. Unique to the industry, Suprema’s patented Multi Dynamic Range (MDR) technology guarantees high-quality image capture even under extreme lighting conditions (operates under direct sunlight up to 100,000 LUX) regardless of the moisture level of captured finger skin. The MDR technology especially developed for mobile environment where there are more dynamics in lighting and moisture conditions.

BioMini Plus 2, now provides enhanced level of anti-spoofing security with the company’s proprietary live fingerprint detection (LFD) technology based on machine learning. The new LFD technology was developed to overcome inherent limitations of conventional scanners by applying a machine learning methods that analyzes and categorizes image patterns according to optical characteristics of various possible fake fingerprint materials. With the machine-learning based LFD technology, BioMini Plus 2 effectively eliminates possible fraud using various fake fingerprint materials including clay, rubber, silicon, paper and film. Suprema ID claims that significant increase in accuracy has been proven in field tests. Moreover, BioMini Plus also comes in an OEM module version for hardware integration with a model name as SFU-550.

“BioMini Plus 2 has been specially developed to meet stringent requirements for the India government’s UIDAI projects which demand fast and high quality image capturing. In addition, with its compatibility to Android systems, mobile-oriented MDR technology, and anti-spoofing LFD, we are confident to gain further market share over UIDAI projects as well as fast-emerging biometric identification projects in many countries,” said Bogun Park, CEO at Suprema ID.

Suprema ID will present full demonstration of its STQC-certified BioMini series fingerprint authentication scanners and RealScan series enrollment scanners at International Police Expo in New Delhi on May 10-11.
