Share Article

New program certifies accuracy and usability of commercial biometric systems.

IBG’s recently-announced Biometric Performance Certification program certifies biometric product accuracy and usability for applications such as border management, visa and passport issuance, access control, network security, and point-of-sale.

Independent certification of biometric product accuracy and usability is a critical factor in biometric deployment, investment, and partnership decisions. Biometric Performance Certification simplifies biometric technology decisions and mitigates risks for government agencies, systems integrators, and commercial deployers.

Biometric products and systems that meet accuracy and usability criteria will be published on the publicly-available Biometric Performance Certification List. Certification is based on performance in rigorous, independent testing such as IBG’s Comparative Biometric Testing.

Michael Thieme, IBG’s Director of Special Projects, will discuss details of IBG’s new Biometric Performance Certification program in the upcoming teleconference. Mr. Thieme will address the following topics:

  • Benefits of Biometric Performance Certification to government and industry
  • Accuracy and usability certification criteria
  • Certification processes and timetable

The teleconference will be held TODAY at 1:00 PM EST (10:00 AM PST; 1800 Coordinated Universal Time).

There is no fee to participate in IBG’s teleconference series. Visit to log in and for further details.
