MegaMatcher On Card SDK

Smart card multi-biometrics

MegaMatcher On Card SDK offers matching-on-card technology that stores a person's fingerprint, iris and face templates on a smart card and performs template matching in a microprocessor embedded in the card, instead of matching biometric information on a PC processor.

The match-on-card method ensures that personal biometric information does not transfer to an external computer as it would in a more basic template-on-card system.

MegaMatcher On Card SDK is developed utilizing a set of ISO/IEC standards to enable interoperability with and easy integration into existing smart card and/or biometric systems.
