Citizen Identification

Ensure national security and personal liberty

Aware provides software and solutions for government-sponsored, biometrics-enabled citizen identification and credentialing systems. Aware’s innovative biometric solutions provide critical support to help ensure national security and protect citizen freedoms and liberties. A decades long commitment to R+D has earned us work with more than 80 government agencies. We know biometrics, security and compliance.

Civil and criminal biometric identification

At the heart of what we do for citizen ID is AwareABIS™, an Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) used for large-scale biometric identification and deduplication, with support for fingerprint, face, and iris modalities. Its highly modular architecture allows it to be configured and optimized for either civil or criminal applications. A fully featured biometric search platform, AwareABIS is differentiated by its open architecture and configurability.

AwareABIS leverages Biometric Services Platform (BioSP™), Aware’s market-leading workflow and integration server, to achieve unsurpassed configurability and ease-of-integration. BioSP™ is a modular, open platform used to enable a biometric system with advanced biometric data processing and management functionality in a web services architecture.

Aware authentication technology runs a one-to-one comparison of extracted and enhanced biometric data with reference data secured in biometric databases. Workflows are customizable, configurable and extensible.Our proprietary matching algorithms, built with mature operational training data sets, manage one-to-many comparisons to establish the identity of an unknown individual.

Biometric solutions for citizen identification

E-passport issuance and personalization

Aware software solutions for e-passport systems are used to collect biometric and biographic data, ensure its quality and compliance, and distribute the data for credential personalization. URC is used to enroll face and fingerprint images and other information towards issuance of a PIV card or e-passport. FingerprintComponent and PhotoComponent run within URC application to perform fingerprint and face biometric capture and also abstraction of the capture devices.

BioSP aggregates enrolled data submitted from the workstations, performs configurable workflows to process and distribute the data, and integrates with other systems to share data and receive responses. In this case, the data is sent to an AFIS for biometric search as well as to a card management system for personalization of the credentials.

Document authentication

For document authentication, URC is used for collection of biometric images and other data from a traveler at a controlled entryway or border checkpoint. FingerprintComponent and PhotoComponent run within URC or WebEnroll to perform autocapture of fingerprint and face biometrics. AwareXM is used to perform biometric comparison between a person’s fingerprints and those stored on their credential or in a central database.

BioSP aggregates enrolled data submitted from the workstations at the border crossing. It also implements workflows to process and send the transactions to a case management system. Administrators can use a browser to query, view, edit, print, and create reports on data, such as on throughput and biometric image quality.
