Sovereign nations are increasingly turning to biometric voting systems to help support fair, credible elections absent of fraud and illegal practices to ensure the protection of democratic principles. Establishing election integrity is a cornerstone of modern democracy that promotes trust and honesty in elected governments and promotes confidence and faith in elected leaders.
Biometrics involves the measurement and analysis of unique physical or behavioural characteristics, especially as a means of verifying and identifying an individual. The broad range of biometric characteristics that can be measured includes fingerprints, palm prints, retina and iris scans, voice patterns and DNA profiles.
In a biometric verification system, an individual claims an identity, for example by providing a name and date of birth. The individual’s biometric features are captured and compared to previously captured and confirmed biometric features of that individual. Such a one-to-one comparison determines whether the individual is indeed who they claim to be.
In a biometric identification system, the individual does not need to claim an identity. His or her biometric features are captured and compared to the features of all previously captured biometric features stored in a biometric database. This one-to-many comparison seeks to determine who the individual is. Some of our projects include:
