Baltimore/Washington International airport trusts biometric Rhino readers

Lumidigm has announced that Innometriks Rhino biometric readers featuring Lumidigm V-Series multispectral fingerprint sensors are deployed across the entire Baltimore/Washington International (BWI) airport, controlling access to the tarmac with multiple units installed directly outdoors in the elements.

Thousands of the over 9,700 employees are already enrolled and the system is handling tens of thousands of transactions per day. The Rhino readers are fully integrated with IntelliSoft software for template capture and card creation.

Since the readers would be used heavily and some were to be used outdoors, durability was a key requirement for BWI. The Innometriks’ Rhino reader with its rugged housing combines embedded Lumidigm fingerprint biometrics, smart card reader, PKI and digital signature technologies. It is already handling high security applications in extreme weather and rough environments for multiple organizations in the United States Department of Defense (DoD). The Rhino’s US Government credential configuration provides tiered authentication levels that meet the SP800-116 implementation guidelines. The Rhino is also FIPS201-certified and approved by the TSA.
