Warwick Warp Technology Receives MINEX Certification
We are delighted to announce today that our fingerprint feature extractor has received full certification in the United States’ National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test (MINEX).
The Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test (MINEX) is an ongoing evaluation of the INCITS 378 fingerprint templates. The MINEX test program provides assurances of the interoperability of core template encoding to users, vendors and integrators as well as being a pre-requisite for participation in government schemes across the globe. MINEX certification denotes that the template encoding not only conforms to international interoperability standards but is also in compliance with U. S. Government programmes.
"We are absolutely delighted to receive this important certification." said Stewart Hefferman, CEO of Warwick Warp. "Receiving MINEX certification provides assurance to our customers that our fingerprint feature extractor meets international and government standards. It also opens up exciting new opportunities for government applications and demonstrates our continued investment in R&D." Hefferman continued "We are seeing a growing demand for fingerprint identification systems and MINEX certification is an important prerequisite for participation in our key markets.
