DERMALOG - First Tenprint Scanner to Receive BSI Security Certification
BONN and HAMBURG, Germany, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has extended its 
security standard for the use of fingerprint devices in public agencies to 
tenprint or so-called 4-4-2 scanners. DERMALOG's LF10 is the world's first 
scanner to meet this specification.

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has set a standard for 
the security of fingerprint scanners in all government applications. According 
to the BSI's Common Criteria PAD (Presentation Attack Detection), all 
fingerprint scanners used to capture one or two prints must automatically 
reject attacks with fake fingers or prints since 2018. Now, this standard has 
been extended to so-called 4-4-2 scanners, which capture up to ten fingers 
within a multi-step process. German-based DERMALOG is now the world's first 
company to receive this certification for its 4-4-2 scanner LF10.

"As a manufacturer of innovative biometric solutions, protection against 
presentation attacks is one of the essential components of our systems. The 
certification by the BSI confirms that we are also a global leader in the field 
of liveness detection," says DERMALOG CEO Gunther Mull.

With its large scanning area, DERMALOG's LF10 captures up to 4 fingers 
simultaneously. German authorities use this device for the registration of 
refugees, for example.
