Because the Indian government has chosen biometrics as the preferred method of secure identification - and because the TCS1 is the only STQC-certified silicon sensor on the market - we expect our involvement in these critical programs will continue to grow.
Siew Yen, marketing director for Toplink Pacific said the company chose the TCS1 sensor because it offers FIPS 201/PIV certification and a large sensor surface with ample room for complete and high-quality capture of fingerprint images.
AuthenTec's TCS1 module, mounted on the back of the MORIS[TM] mobile ID terminal, allows police to capture high resolution (500 DPI) fingerprint images which are encrypted and transmitted for comparison against fingerprints of known criminals.
This ILO certification for Seafarers' Identity Documents validates the combined solution of UPEK's TouchChip TCS1 silicon fingerprint sensor with Bioscrypt's finger minutiae algorithm as an accurate and interoperable solution for real world large-scale identity management applications," said Mike Chaudoin, Director of Standards and Security at UPEK.
UPEK's TouchChip TCS1 fingerprint sensor provides Bioscrypt a capacitive fingerprint sensor option which we can offer to government agencies as they procure readers to comply with the new FIPS 201 regulations," said Colin Soutar, CTO Bioscrypt Inc.
The new TCEFx1 module leverages UPEK's certified TouchChip TCS1 sensor by adding a low profile finger guide, on-board memory for sensor calibration data, a USB controller and other features that deliver a self-contained USB module that is simple to integrate into devices including notebooks, keyboards, smartcard readers, mobile ID terminals and access control devices, where demand for certified fingerprint sensors is growing.
