M.O.S.T. Toolz™ Fingerprint Edition accelerates the development of high security ID credential systems that meet ICAO and ISO/ IEC standards for both smart cards and biometrics.
More than an SDK, the kit combines the development of a M.O.S.T. Card® microprocessor smart card file system with the power to capture a fingerprint image, compress the image with the WSQ algorithm, and to transform the image into an ISO 19794-2 or ANSI 378 template. The user can then select a best candidate with the CBEFF interoperable header and write it to the M.O.S.T. Card.
Developers can build a biometrics-enhanced smart card transaction system that updates and secures files while setting a variety of defensive measures to protect user ID, card access, value, and biometric data secured in the smart card chip. CardLogix development tools enable easy updating without the need to reissue ID cards.
M.O.S.T. Toolz Smart Card Configuration Utility™ features a user-friendly interface that enables developers to swiftly set keys and design a M.O.S.T. card file structure (CFS). With multiple programming examples, instructive demo software, and powerful middleware developers have a comprehensive set of tools to create high security, multifunctional smart card applications that utilize fingerprint capture and validation quickly and easily.
In addition to PC/SC support, the Winplex® API Middleware reduces high level commands for advanced smart card reader functions not supported by PC/SC. This powerful API has over 160 functions, including biometric capture, matching, and storage, and functions for specific reader hardware, such as magnetic stripe reading, card latching, and LED control. The middleware includes programming examples in C# (.Net framework).
Demo programs that illustrate multiple smart card functions, such as how to capture and write fingerprint data to the M.O.S.T. Card, are included to accelerate learning for system development. Each demo software includes source code examples and one or more demo card. See tab labeled "Demo Programs" for more detail.
Smart cards are widely accepted as one of the most secure and reliable methods of identification. Biometric technology is essential in a secure identification system in order to provide the highest degree of confidence in identity verification. Combining microprocessor smart card technology with biometrics provides the optimal means to create a positive binding of the smart card to the cardholder thereby enabling strong verification and authentication of the cardholder's identity.
Unlike cellular devices and other tokens, M.O.S.T. microprocessor smart cards can safely store large, ICAO compliant biometric templates in the chip and make comparisons locally without the need to connect to a database of biometric identifiers. When a subject presents his or her card to the reader, the biometric data stored in the chip is temporarily processed and verified against a newly captured fingerprint image. This process is significantly more secure and less vulnerable to hackers than systems that store biometric data on central databases.
By using the transport key and forensic card information commands, a user can engineer a secure and efficient lifecycle management system for the smart card ecosystem. The commands relay the state of the cards throughout their entire lifecycle.
Without requiring additional programming, scripts or custom APIs, management can enroll personnel with one of Corvus' biometric enrollment kits and Raven software and prepare for instant personalization and issuance of smart card ID Credentials. Within Card Encoding Engineâ„¢ ID Card Personalization Software are two built-in connections: one for importing biometric and biographic data and the other for importing the card file structure (CFS) created or selected in M.O.S.T. Toolz. The user can then validate the credentials with FastCheck™Validation Software, and then encode and print them for instant card issuance.
