Innometriks has added a new identification validation reader to its portfolio. Called the Rhino Touch, the reader is a result of a partnership with Lumidigm to incorporate fingerprint sensors into its features.
The Rhino Touch is an identification validation reader that’s designed for high-security applications that require multifactor authentication. It offers a configuration for U.S. Government credentials that meets SP800-116 implementation guidelines. The system is FIPS 201 certified, and it’s also approved by the TSA.
The Rhino Touch offers a biometric authentication approach with the addition of Lumidigm’s V-Series multispectral fingerprint sensors. This allows for card-free access through a one-to many or a one-to-one PIN plus fingerprint authentication. The multispectral technology has a surface and subsurface detection capability that can discriminate between real and fake fingerprint ridges.
After the capture process, fingerprints are kept in a central database, and then the template images are synced to appropriate readers. During the authentication process, the image scanned into the reader is compared to the database for identification and and then confirmed or denied.
The Rhino Touch will validate Defense Department Common Access Cards, Transportation Worker Identification Credentials and PIV credentials in a way that eliminates the need for a trained operator to complete the task.
The reader has a self-guided and fully authenticated enrollment system that enables users with these government credentials to enroll into a facility access control system with their card. The Rhino Touch system vets and validates all card signatures, certificates and personal information on all three of these credentials, whether they’re contact, contactless or magnetic stripe.
The system comes with a seven-inch touchscreen and an intuitive, kiosk-level user interface. The reader can be installed in a variety of ways, including on a wall, at a desk or mounted on a free-standing post.
Lumidigm and Innometriks will be launching the reader at the ISC West Show in Las Vegas on April 10-12.
