How is biometric fingerprint data collected?
ievo systems acquire biometric data by scanning a fingerprint and measuring and collecting unique reference points from a finger.
This data is extracted, transferred, and via an advanced algorithm, stored as a template on a separate ievo Interface Board
No fingerprint images are kept or recorded on the reader head or the Interface Board. The original image cannot be reverse-engineered and recreated from the saved fingerprint template.
When a person uses the system for access, again the reader will scan the fingerprint, and transfer the data to an ievo Interface Board. There, the scanned data is cross-referenced with the stored templates. If the data matches a registered template, then positive identification can be made and access granted by the access control system.
