World's Largest Citizen Identification Database
NEC's breakthrough AFIS technology in South Africa produced the world's largest citizen identification database.
As homeland security tightens throughout the world, from the borders to the marine and aviation industry right through to national development, urban development, transportation, education and the very home each citizen resides, an accurate and convenient National Identification system becomes imperative to help us tell and prove who we say we are, readily, be it at work, school or home.
Biometrics used in a national ID system serves to accurately authenticate valid use of national ID cards by citizens.
NEC's biometrics matching engine, empowered by our fingerprint identification technology, offers both 1:1 verification and scalable 1:n identification matching for medium- to large-scale projects. It enables quick and seamless integration by system integrators and solution providers into their national ID solutions and products. To date, many countries in the world have chosen national ID systems built with NEC's biometrics technologies for the unrivaled matching accuracy.
