i3.IdentySoft.com - Information about Biometrics & Privacy

When talking about privacy and biometrics, one should immediately look at the kind of system they are using. Government systems (such as the police or your passport) are based on a system where biometric images are stored. These systems can violate people's privacy if they fall into the wrong hands or are used incorrectly. 

The commercial systems of EasySecure, such as IdentySoft and BioStar use an algorithm and cannot be traced to a real print. Our systems scan a fingerprint or face and this image is immediately converted into a template in the scanner. This template is the result of an algorithm and consists of a figure of 364 positions. In addition to being patented, the algorithm is also secured with encryption (AES256).


Privacy Template

Even if the code were to be cracked, the algorithm would still have to be cracked. And even if the algorithm were to be cracked, it would still be impossible to make an original image of the stored result.

It is therefore impossible to make an image of a fingerprint or face from a stored template in our systems, which can then be compared to another database or image.
