4 Fingers TouchlessID
4 Fingers TouchlessID is a significantly more reliable biometric than other mobile-based solutions. Unlike facial recognition, it won’t fail under bright lights or in dim rooms. In noisy areas, it’s better than voice. And it’s more secure than using a single thumbprint.
Capturing all four fingerprints at once increases the complexity of the data collected, enhancing overall security well beyond partial prints, like those captured by sensor-based mobile fingerprint solutions.
4 Fingers TouchlessID doesn’t require any additional hardware beyond a 5MP camera and LED flash, which nearly all smartphones already have, making it ready to deploy with your BYOD strategy.
Here’s How it Works
Harnessing the Power of Computer Vision
Veridium’s Computer Vision team developed 4 Fingers TouchlessID because a highly secure, mobile fingerprint biometric simply didn’t exist. Using contactless methods to capture multiple fingerprints at once ensures the quality and complexity of the resulting biometric template, and provides a high level of precision and reliability for authentication.
Our team is working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to include 4 Fingers TouchlessID in the government’s certification program for contactless fingerprint capture. This will ensure compatibility with developing law enforcement and immigration fingerprinting standards.

Benefits of 4 Fingers TouchlessID
Extremely low False Rejection Rate of 1.0% at a 0.01% False Acceptance Rate
>500 DPI resolution, the same as high-end flatbed fingerprint scanners
Works under any lighting conditions because it uses the device’s LED flash
Works on standard smartphones – no additional hardware required
Will have Liveness detection in early 2017
Uses a simple interface that makes it fast and easy to authenticate
4 Fingers provides high-quality prints for 1:1 or 1:n matching
Supports legacy fingerprint database matching

Here’s how 4 Fingers TouchlessID compares to other biometrics
|4 Fingers TouchlessID||Fingerprint (Mobile)||Fingerprint (Standalone)||Voice||Face||Iris|
|Cost to Deploy||Low||Low||High||Medium||Low||High|
|Affected by Skin/Eye Pigment?||No||No||No||No||Yes||No|
|Affected by Environment?||No||No||No||Yes||Yes||No|
* Face and Voice are highly-affected by environment, making them the least accurate biometrics when deploying in most settings.
