The National Registry of Civil Status of Colombia approved the Thales fingerprint scanner, which meets the requirements established by the Technical Annex version 2 of Resolution 5633, which defines the primary conditions and security procedures to access the biometric database from the National Registry of Civil Status.
This easy-to-use scanner enables fast and reliable fingerprint capture by using its embedded processing and the details extracted to provide FBI PIV-certified identity authentication.
The device integrates advanced algorithms that support real-time fake finger detection and encryption of captured images to protect them against phishing, making it the best choice for security applications. The Registry may use finger readers to protect Colombian citizens’ identity in a great variety of applications, such as banking, law enforcement, border control and physical and logical access control.
Jerome Copin, General Director for Andean countries, Thales, said: “Thales is one of the few companies that meet the new requirements of version 2 of the Technical Annex of the resolution, and we are proud that the National Registry of Civil Status of Colombia has approved the Thales biometric solution to verify the identity of its citizens.”
“With more than 200 biometric implementations in 80 countries around the world, Thales has a strong ability to adapt to new market requirements quickly and efficiently, and we are excited to start working in Colombia,” said Copin.Click below to share this article
