Citizen ID and Elections

Aware provides software and solutions for government-sponsored, biometrics-enabled citizen identification and credentialing systems, such as for e-passports, national ID cards, and voter registration and elections. Features of the solution includes .NET or browser-based biometric enrollment and duplicate search, support for fingerprint, face, and iris biometrics, highly-scalable biometric search, stateful application processing workflow, and advanced analytics for automated data integration, identity data cleaning, and automated ID record comparison.

Aware’s Citizen ID solutions can include either URC or WebEnroll with BioComponents for .NET or browser-based biometric user interface, respectively. Fingerprint, face, and/or iris enrollment and duplicate search are supported. BioSP is a modular, configurable workflow and middleware platform used for server-or cloud-based functions, including data management, workflow, and subsystem connectivity. Astra with Nexa fingerprint, face, and iris matching SDKs perform biometric search of large databases. Inquire is an advanced text search and analytics tool used to clean identity data and automatically detect identity data inconsistencies. Astra is used to accelerate search and processing of very large identity databases. ICAOPack is used to personalize e-passports.

Solutions for Citizen ID and Elections

E-passport issuance and personalization

5.2.3 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 FaceComponent run within URC application to perform fingerprint and face biometric capture and also abstraction of the capture devices. SubmitComponent performs transaction validation and manages data submission to BioSP.

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.

National ID

Aware software solutions for national ID systems are used to collect biometric and biographic data, ensure its quality and compliance, search for duplicate enrollments, and distribute the data for credential personalization. URC or WebEnroll is used to enroll face and fingerprint images and other information towards duplicate search and personalization. FingerprintComponent and FaceComponent run within URC application to perform fingerprint and face biometric capture and also abstraction of the capture devices. SubmitComponent performs transaction validation and manages data submission to BioSP.

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. Astra using Nexa algorithms performs performs biometric search, Inquire performs text-based identity match. BioSP can send biometrics to an external AFIS and a card management system for personalization of credentials.

Nexa fingerprint, face, and iris biometric matching algorithms can be used to determine whether an applicant is already represented in the database, which can help deter and prevent fraud.

Inquire™ applies advanced text search, match, and link algorithms to check biographic data against existing records and to help ensure that each citizen is issued only one identity.

Elections and voter registration

Aware software solutions for election and voting systems are used to collect biometric and biographic data, ensure its quality and compliance, and search for duplicate enrollments. URC or WebEnroll is used to enroll face and fingerprint images and other information towards duplicate search and personalization. FingerprintComponent and FaceComponent run within URC application to perform fingerprint and face biometric capture and also abstraction of the capture devices. SubmitComponent performs transaction validation and manages data submission to BioSP.

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. The data is sent to Astra for biometric search, Inquire for text-based identity match, and a card management system for personalization of the credentials.

Biometric barcodes

Biometric barcodes

BioSP biometric barcodes solution utilizes BioSP Document Server with AwareXM and AccuPrint libraries to perform server-based fingerprint template extraction, barcode encoding and printing, and biometric match-to-barcode. Upon enrollment, fingerprint templates are incorporated into two-dimensional PDF417-compliant barcodes and then printed on credentials, PDFs, or other documents. Upon authentication, a live fingerprint image is submitted to BioSP along with data extracted from the barcode. BioSP can then perform centralized 1:1 fingerprint matching to authenticate an individual to the credential or document.
