Lumidigm has announced that Innometriks’ Rhino reader, which combines embedded Lumidigm fingerprint biometrics, smart cards, PKI and digital signature technologies, is handling high security applications in extreme weather and rough environments for multiple organizations of the United States Department of Defense (DoD).
The company said that the Rhino is FIPS201-certified and approved by the TSA. Various DoD agencies are now reportedly securing outdoor vehicle and pedestrian perimeters as well as interior access points using the Rhino.
The Rhino solution is also being used for cloud-based perimeter access control with biometric verification in real time. In these applications, literally around the world, the Rhino reader has withstood extreme environments and harsh abuse from users. In some cases, solutions have included customizations to meet specific application needs. In other applications, Rhino fingerprint biometric readers are working comfortably in tandem with iris biometrics to meet multi-biometric requirements.
“Many of the DoD’s applications are used in areas where traditional biometrics were tried but failed,” explains John Cassise, Innometriks CEO. “Warfighters, first responders and many other DoD employees don’t have control over the environments in which they work and do not have time to wait for the biometric reader to get a correct read of their fingerprint. They need it to work the first time.”
