TigerAFIS ranks number 1 in the US Government NIST MINEX testing

Also Receives Full MINEX Certification

Dhaka, Nov 1, 2009 – TigerIT Bangladesh Limited, a leading global provider of AFIS and identity management solutions, announced today that the company’s fingerprint matching and extracting algorithms proved overall superiority and ranked number 1 in the Minutiae Interoperability Exchange (MINEX) test by the NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology). The NIST test results were released on October 27, 2009 and revealed that combination of the TigerAFIS enrollment template generator and the matcher showed False Non-Match Rate 0.06% at a fixed False Match Rate of 0.01 for two fingers, outperforming everyone including former leaders NEC (0.08%), Cogent (0.11%) and Sagem (0.12%).

The complete Minex result can be found at http://fingerprint.nist.gov/minex/Results.html,

where the most significant cells are marked in yellow, which denotes the accuracy of the combination of vendors’ own template generator and matcher.

Along with the best result for the combination of template generator and matcher, both these components of TigerAFIS maintain high interoperability. TigerAFIS combines its own false non match rate of 0.0006 with 0.0021 for median for template matcher and with 0.0031 for median enrollment generator into another best number among all of the vendors (the median is most relevant as it helps to remove the irregularities caused by nearly non-compliant vendors in the test). This result establishes that TigerAFIS template generator manages to effectively filter out noisy minutiae and yet preserve enough information to remain highly interoperable.

The growing use of biometrics for security applications in national-ID and e-passport has focused attention on the importance of interoperability among multiple matching systems. The MINEX test, conducted by NIST and sponsored by the Justice Management Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security US-VISIT program, determines the feasibility of using minutiae data for the exchange of fingerprint information between dissimilar fingerprint matching systems.

TigerAFIS had demonstrated an excellent performance in NIST PFT test as well.

At a False Match Rate of 0.01%, TigerAFIS’ accuracy for a two-finger match was in the top three across all participants (47 SDKs) scoring a 99.9% True Match Rate in average in the largest NIST dataset.

TigerAFIS is probably the fastest AFIS in the world with the highest accuracy as of today.  It has a speed of 30 million fingerprint matches per second (measured in a dual QUAD core XEON 3.33 GHz server).

    According to Watson of NIST: Tiger IT has participated in 2 different evaluations at NIST there is no test result certification from this office.

    I was excited by seeing this good news but when i contact with NIST responsible person “Watson, Craig I.” For verifying the news:

    He reply me as follows:
    Tiger IT has participated in 2 different evaluations at NIST. You can see their results at the links below.

    http://fingerprint.nist.gov/PFT/index.html – PFT is an evaluation of current 1-to-1 matching technology using proprietary templates, there is no test result certification.

    http://fingerprint.nist.gov/minex/index.html – MINEX is an evaluation of 1-to-1 matching technology using interoperable templates, there is no test result certification from this office. For information on PIV certified products go to http://fips201ep.cio.gov/

    Hope this helps.

  2. The E3′s been wow guides dissatisfying fans and developers identically, and we all recognize they demand to shake things up or else. In the present climate we hear of a rumor bordering the games diligence event as reported by Kotaku, and it seems like they’re judgement of breach it to the public.

    There’s no certified in summary on this nevertheless – we’ve heard lots of “official words” in any event changes in the occasion’s design, simply to be rest absolutely improper later on – although it’s been said that the guess has already been brought forward towards discussion around the wow guides directorship of the Diversion Software Joining (ESA).

    As a substitute for, what we set up as an update on Gamespot is a “No Note” comment from ESA superior vice president respecting communications and dig into, Well-heeled Taylor.

    As we do every year, the ESA solicits feedback wow guides and manipulation from exhibitors and attendees on how kindest to habituate and evolve the E3 Media & Affair Crown to ensure it meets their needs. Each element of the Peak is opened in the service of discussion, and that modify is continued to execute a rewarding and effectual experience. With regard to today’s published reports, the ESA does not comment on rumors and guess, and desire lunge at an notice with respect to the details and logistics of the 2009 E3 Media & Business Summit at the apropos time.

    There’s been some bigger fallout in E3′s loop of pals, like Activision Blizzard who chose to skip the band this year, and instead absorb its own upshot in the same week. That’s distinctly from all the critics who’ve thrown in their two cents on the latest construction of E3, wow guides such as EA’s John Riccitiello, Ubisoft’s Laurent Detoc, and EA Sports’ Peter Moore.

    Induct’s look into if ESA can cook up something that resolution charm them back for the 2009 E3. Control it posted here in search more updates.
