Hybrid Live Finger Detection Technology

Suprema’s LFD technology is based on comparison of dynamic and static image characteristics of the fake fingers to live fingers. By the advanced analysis algorithm to detect the abnormalities in dynamic changing pattern of fingerprint images, and several static features showing liveliness or unnaturalness of fingers, fake fingers are clearly distinguished from the live fingers. This new LFD technology provides efficient and effective solution to protect the fingerprint system from attack via fake fingerprints.
