AwareXM is an SDK that provides MINEX-certified, INCITS 378-compliant fingerprint minutiae extraction, template generation, and fingerprint authentication, such as required for PIV credential personalization and authentication. AwareXM includes other features, such as Aware’s QualityCheck™ and NFIQ fingerprint image quality scoring. AwareXM provides support for several biometric standards including ISO/IEC 19794-2 for minutiae-based template data formatting and ILO SID-0002 for seafarer identity cards.
Because AwareXM is MINEX-certified, it is interoperable with template extraction and matching algorithms from many other vendors. This means that fingerprint templates generated and stored on a card using AwareXM can be biometrically verified by any other MINEX-certified matcher. Conversely, AwareXM can be used to verify any template generated by a MINEX-certified extraction algorithm.
AwareXM works seamlessly with PIVPack to incorporate biometric verification into a comprehensive enrollment, personalization, and reader software solution.
