Aware offers its Astra™ Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) and Nexa™ software development kits for fast, accurate fingerprint recognition, face recognition, and iris recognition towards biometric identification and authentication.
Aware’s Biometric Services Platform (BioSP™) is a modular service-oriented middleware platform that performs a variety of centralized tasks and functions critical to a biometric system, including workflow, transaction processing, reporting, subsystem integration, database management, reporting, and user administration.
Aware provides Universal Registration Client (URC™) and other .NET- and browser-based biometric applications, several of which utilize Aware’s “BioComponents” enrollment controls. They support biographic data capture and validation, and autocapture of livescan fingerprints, fingerprint cards, face, and iris biometrics.
Aware offers FIDO® Suite as well as several applications and SDKs for fingerprint, face, and iris biometric enrollment and authentication using mobile devices for a variety of applications and architectures, with robust liveness detection and anti-spoofing features.
Aware offers software development kits that fulfill a variety of functions critical to the capture and digitization of high-quality, standards-compliant biometric images and associated data for fingerprint recognition, face recognition, and iris recognition. They can operate on workstations and mobile devices.
Inquire™ is a software development kit that apply advanced text comparison algorithms for identity data searching, name matching, and identity resolution. The SDK can be applied to searching and filtering of identity data and more advanced identity resolution and link analysis functions.

Aware offers a comprehensive portfolio of biometrics software products for large-scale fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, and iris recognition systems, including: a biometric services platform; a scalable Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS); browser- and Windows-based UIs and SDKs for biometric enrollment; SDK for name matching and identity resolution; and SDKs for fingerprint, face, and iris recognition.  Our products are field-proven, easy-to-use, well-supported, and independent of capture hardware and matching algorithms.


Aware provides biometric solutions for fingerprint authentication and facial authentication from a PC or mobile device, performing matching either on the device or on the server. The solutions include robust liveness and anti-spoofing features. Aware’s Knomi™ mobile biometric authentication framework enables either server-centric or device-centric authentication using facial recognition. Knomi includes three FIDO® Certified products for mobile authentication: FIDO® Face Authenticator, FIDO® Client, and FIDO® Server. FIDO® Face Authenticator provides robust facial autocapture, spoof detection, and facial recognition performance.

Aware provides biometric solutions that apply fingerprint recognition, face recognition, and iris recognition software to validate the claimed identity of an individual or detect their presence on a watch list, such as part of an onboarding process. Aware also provides tools for advanced text-based identity searching and analytics towards name matching, identity resolution, and other applications.
Aware provides biometric solutions for citizen ID and voting systems. They apply fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, and iris recognition towards issuance of passports, drivers’ licenses, and national IDs to citizens. Aware also offers biometric deduplication and identity resolution solutions useful for keeping identity data clean and accurate.
Aware offers biometric solutions that apply fingerprint recognition face recognition, and iris recognition to help screen visa applicants and international visitors arriving at the border. Our solutions perform search of biometric watch lists and authenticate identities against credentials.

Aware provides a wide variety of biometric solutions for law enforcement applications, helping police perform fingerprint identification and face recognition, and also to utilize centralized AFIS and ABIS biometric identification services, such as those provided by the FBI. Live scan and card scan fingerprints, palm, face, and iris modalities are all supported.
Aware provides biometric solutions for screening of employees and for mobile biometric enrollment and search by field personnel. They apply fingerprint identification, facial recognition, and iris recognition to search biometric databases

Aware delivers large-scale biometric identification and authentication solutions tailored to specific requirements, enabling identity systems with high-performance fingerprint, face, and iris recognition for biometric identification and authentication. Our solutions are flexible, reliable, and durable, due in part to the modularity and configurability of our COTS products, their hardware and algorithm independence, our diligent software maintenance practices, and lessons learned from twenty-plus years of deployments across a diverse range of applications.
