Systems Management > Biometric Access Management
Comda BioAccess is an entire organizational solution to perform biometric access.
Biometric user authentication system – the unique Comda development for simple and convenient authentication:
Remote user authentication.
User authentication via the internet.
User authentication via public stations / kiosks.
User authentication via thin client stations.
The Comda BioAccess system comprises two main components: The BioAccess server which sits on the central server, and the BioAccess Client, a designated component for the end station. In addition, a fingerprint reader which is installed on the user station is required.
The system allows an organization to register and manage user biometric information on one central server in the organization, and in this way save the cost and time of deploying the solution. In order to allow quicker remote installation of an end station component, Comda has developed the designated ActiveX component. In addition, installation can be performed while using MSI for installation via the internet network.
The system includes the option to register users independently through a simple, convenient interface:
Registering a user begins in the entry screen where the user index must be entered, which can be a username, identification number or user code. After scanning the database, if users are identified but their biometric information not registered, a user-friendly registration screen opens. Users can be permitted to perform fingerprint register themselves via this screen or only the system operator / security officer can be allowed to perform registration. The registration process is fast and includes built-in minutiae template quality verification and remote control mechanisms (automatic) on the biometric reader definitions in order to create the optimal picture. The biometric information produced from the minutiae template is stored in the user register. A few different fingers of the user can be authorized in each registration where the default is one finger of each hand.
The authentication process for a registered user also starts in the entry screen. After identifying the user’s record in the central server database, an authentication screen appears. A new process is activated to receive a current picture of the fingerprint from which the biometric code is produced. This code is compared to the original biometric information from the time of registration. If they match, access to the system is performed.
