Enrollment and Verification

Solution overview

The following diagram contains a simplified diagram of the Biometric ID system, showing the enrolment station, where people go to register and pick up a Biometric ID card which transmits requests and data to the central system. When the person has received their Biometric ID card, they can use it at the verification station (e.g., polling station).

Enrollment and Verification

To register as a Bio, the person needs to provide the following:

  • Biographic data: full name, date of birth, gender, parent’s names, address of origin, place of residence, mobile telephone number, passport number, and social security number.
  • Fingerprints using a slap scanner (number and type of fingers can be configured).
  • Facial image using a webcam.
  • Supporting documents will be scanned by the document scanner.
  • A signature, captured as an image, using a signature pad.


The enrolment station will send the new registration to the central system. The main design will check if the identity does not already exist in the system by matching the biometrics. If no duplicates are found, a card request will be transferred to the personalization site for card printing and issuance. Later on, the issued cards are sent to the registration station. At the registration center the person can pick up the card. Before receiving the card, the person will be verified by matching the life-captured fingerprints against the fingerprints in the corresponding Bio card.


The enrolment stations are also used in situations where a person needs to update a record or ask for renewal of their card. The replacement request, together with the replacement reason (for example, a card is expired or lost), is sent to the central system. In the central system, the identity is checked with the personal data, which is already in the system. Any old card will be deactivated, and a new card will be printed and ready for card issuance.


When a person has their Bio card, they can use it at the verification stations. During this verification process, the card of the person will be scanned. The fingerprint templates will be retrieved from the chip module on the card. These templates are then matched against the fingerprints scanned at the verification station, resulting in a match or no match. In case of a match, the person’s identity is positively verified.


Our high efficiency AFIS plays a critical role to avoid identity fraud and enhance the biometric security by:

  • Tracing duplicates and ‘ghosts’ in documents
  • Preventing all attempts for multiple registrations
  • Biometric matching with face and iris recognition
  • The AFIS performs a de-duplication process for detection of duplicates in the system.
  • The AFIS creates a unique ID number for every person.
  • Application areas: Border Control, Public Safety, National ID, e-passport, driver’s licenses, passports, healthcare, voter registrations, etc. ,

We can integrate a scalable solution which uses parallel processing power of several servers working together, to ensure secure, fast and accurate results.
