A modular and customizable multi-biometric solution for national-scale projects.
MegaMatcher Automated Biometric Identification System is an integrated multi-biometric solution for systems developers and integrators. The modular and customizable solution provides services for high-performance multi-biometric systems with multiple transactions. This product is a complete system and highly recommended for national scale identification projects and also for large-scale multi-biometric projects.
Easy Deployment on Regular Hardware
A complete system, easily deployed for large-scale multi-modal biometric projects with ready-to-use services and applications running on regular hardware.
Proven Technology in National-Scale Projects
Multiple complex biometric transactions processing with high speed and accuracy using proprietary fused matching algorithm technology. Implemented successfully in national-scale projects, like passport issuance, EMR, law enforcement and defense, ID system and voter deduplication.
Accepts fingerprint, face and iris images for creating multiple biometric templates and searching against the database. Proprietary fused matching algorithm provides high matching accuracy.
Can determine questionable biometric matching results and allow human discretion to facilitate decision making .
High Availability and Fault Tolerance
High system reliability and better performance with parallelly running instances of some or all components.Can avoid information loss or corruption in case of failure with communication designed as atomic transactions.
Modular and Scalable Architecture
Modular architecture that caters to specific system performance requirements. Each such component designed for a specific task can be scaled up to meet project requirements.
Interoperability with Other Systems
Web services for communication with third party biometric systems for services as biometric data storing, update, identification, verification and submission of matching results.
Compliance with Biometric Standards
Allows the use of ANSI/NIST-ITL-1, ISO/IEC 19794-2, ISO/IEC 19794-5 and ISO/IEC 19794-6 biometric template standards.
Different large-scale biometric projects may have specific system performance requirements. MegaMatcher Automated Biometric Identifi cation System (ABIS) features modular architecture with components designed for a specific task. Each component can be scaled up to meet project requirements.
MegaMatcher ABIS 10.0 includes these services, modules and components:
The Management Service is the core component of MegaMatcher ABIS. Requests for biometric services are executed via transaction mechanism and the unit is responsible for managing MegaMatcher ABIS transaction workflow.
The Management Service splits a transaction into tasks and delegates them to multiple services for execution. In general, each request is being validated by the Management Service, then it is sent to the Image Processing Service for biometric template creation and to the Matching Service for biometric template matching. In case when transaction requires manual inspection, the Management Service will forward it to the Adjudication Application.
These services are included with the unit:
The Management Service is capable to verify an extracted biometric template against another template locally.
The Image Processing Service is based on MegaMatcher 9.0 biometric template extraction technology. This module is used for biometric data quality assessment and biometric data extraction from fingerprint, face and iris images.
These functions are performed by the Image Processing Service:
The Matching Service is responsible for storing biometric data in the Template Database and matching the received biometric data against the stored in the database. The service is based on MegaMatcher Accelerator 9.0 technology and is controlled by the Management Service.
Depending on project requirements, the Matching Service can consist of a single computational unit or multiple units arranged into a cluster with one of them acting as a primary unit and other units as the cluster nodes. In a cluster the primary unit receives tasks from the Management Service, distributes biometric matching tasks between the cluster nodes, stores biometric data in the Main Database module and synchronizes copies of the Main Database between the cluster nodes.
MegaMatcher ABIS offers easy and flexible web services-based interface for communication with MegaMatcher ABIS units, outside of MegaMatcher ABIS core, as well as external client applications. The web services cover the necessary aspects of required biometric services for biometric data storing, update, identification, verification and submission of matching results.
The Adjudication Application is designed for human experts, who examine questionable biometric matching results, which are forwarded by the Matching Service, and take appropriate decisions. The questionable matching results, like non-matching templates or detected duplicate(s), are determined by defined restrictions in Administration Service.
The Adjudication Application provides visual tool for easy examination of given biometric data by providing detailed templates review:
The Administration Service is designed to manage and monitor MegaMatcher ABIS system using role-based access control.
The Administration Service consists of the following modules:
MegaMatcher ABIS Client is a stand-alone application intended to demonstrate the key functionalities of MegaMatcher ABIS solution, like:
Taking into account different business needs and specific project requirements, some customization might be required. This may include developing custom user interface, workflow scenarios, person’s record structure (biometric and biographic data, additional data fields).
Neurotechnology offers custom project development service for providing a customized MegaMatcher ABIS based solution, as well as implementing additional functionality. Also, integrators can develop client-side applications using MegaMatcher ABIS API to meet specific requirements.
We recommend to run each component on dedicated server hardware, PC or device, unless it is specified otherwise. Network connection is required for communication between the components of MegaMatcher Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS).
Below are minimal requirements for each component:
The required additional components installation licenses and/or customization for specific project needs can be ordered at any time.
