Press release from: BioLink Solutions

BioLink announces integration of its innovative fingerprint biometrics in the key travel document of the Republic of the Maldives – the passport. The immigration department of the country has preferred the BioLink solution to enhance the citizens’ security following the globally accepted standards, in particular, the standard for machine-readable travel documents introduced by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The new passport introduced in Male on July 26, Maldives' Independence Day, implements fingerprint and face image templates digitized and embedded into the microchip contained in its back cover and provides for quick and fool-proof identification of the citizens.

In cooperation with IRIS Corporation Berhad, our key strategic partner for civil identification projects, BioLink supplied its advanced development toolkit (BSDK) being the core of the identification component of the passport creation and issuance system. BioLink SDK, which is a smart way of building state-of-the-art security subsystems, is mostly advantageous for its compliance with major international and industry standards, namely, ISO/IEC 19794-4 Finger Image Data, ISO/IEC 19794-2 Finger Minutiae Data, WSQ, ANSI/NIST-ITL-1-2000 and ANSI INCITS 378-2004. It supports a wide range of programming languages and fingerprint scanning devices produced by various global manufacturers, thus providing flexibility and adaptability of systems based on BSDK.

Piotr Pertsov, Director of Business Development in BioLink, says: “Our accumulated experience and expertise in similar nationwide identification projects allowing building collaboration with government customers in the most convenient and smooth way. We are grateful to IRIS supplying inlays for the microchips contained in the new Maldivian passport for introducing our biometrics to another nation striving to follow the most innovative identification trends worldwide”.
