Setting new standards in speed and accuracy

NIST Validation

Third-Party Authenticated

NEC's state-of-the-art biometrics algorithms have been validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in a comprehensive range of tests from small one-to-one verification to large-scale high-volume identification matching.


 

Fingerprint Validation

NIST Validation
Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test (NIST 7296)

NEC consistently achieved top rankings in both the lowest false accept and the lowest false reject rates recorded in the Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test. This test determined the feasibility of using minutiae data for the exchange of fingerprint information between dissimilar fingerprint matching systems and proved NEC's superior biometric technology. The test was conducted by NIST and was co-sponsored by the Department of Justice, Justice Management Division and the Department of Homeland Security US-VISIT program.

NIST Validation
Slap Fingerprint Segmentation Evaluation 2004 (SlapSeg04)

NEC's algorithms ranked #1 in matching accuracy. Slap Test offers an assessment of the accuracy of algorithms used to segment slap fingerprint images into individual fingerprint images, sponsored by NIST and the Justice Management Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

NIST Validation
Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation Test (NIST 7123)

The unparalleled identification accuracy of NEC's fingerprint matching algorithm was rated top performer in all categories of the 2003 FpVTE test, an independently administered technology evaluation of fingerprint matching, identification, and verification systems conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

NIST Validation
One-to-One Fingerprint Matching with Vendor SDK Matchers Test (NISTIR 7221)

Two NEC algorithms ranked #1 and #2 in overall matching cost effectiveness (matching speed and accuracy). NEC also captured the #2 rank for overall absolute accuracy, placing a close second (98.97% vs. 99.01%) behind an algorithm that matched at speeds nearly three times slower.

NIST Validation
Two Finger Matching with Vendor SKD Matchers Test (NSTIR 7249)

NEC's algorithms performance mirrored its performance in the One-to-One Fingerprint Matching Test.
