Civil Identification Fingerprint System Software


Civil Identification Fingerprint Software Supplier to Integrators

East Shore's basic posture is that of being a supplier of Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) software to system entry workstationintegrators, value added resellers and users. Within the Civil Identification (CID) system arena, East Shore provides fingerprint identification software packages ranging from the supply of image processing and encoding software with matching engines to the supply of complete CID Fingerprint Systems.

Image Processing / Encoding Software and Matching Engineentry workstation

The kernel software for a CID system is the civil fingerprint identification algorithmic software. East Shore can provide integrators with a fingerprint identification system algorithmic software package for fingerprint image processing, encoding and matching. The matching is supplied as a disk based matching engine (inclusive of both software and hardware).  The software package supplied to an integrator is:

  • designed to convert gray scale fingerprint images into match records (performed at the workstation level),
  • use the match records to search and compare against match database resident records,
  • determine which, if any records in the match database, have a sufficiently close fit to the input image to be considered a match,
  • update and insure the synchronization of the matching engine with the central server database.

It is typical that the fingerprint matching subsystem, depending on system size and complexity, will include a parallel processor as part of the hardware configuration. The match database in the matcher is a specialized database structure. The matcher engine and related software includes: a transaction manager, a database manager, a communications manager and the matching engine software.

Additional System Components

East Shore supplies, depending on specific integrator or customer needs, the basic fingerprint identification algorithmic software w/ matcher noted above. We also supply other fingerprint identification subsystem components necessary for the production of a system by an integrator, up to and including an entire system.


Team ConsultingIn addition to the supply of civil fingerprint identification system software, East Shore also provides consulting services to assist integrators in the design and development of fingerprint identification systems that incorporate our algorithms, ranging from small to large scale systems. Our system design expertise includes both search and verification systems. Our primary areas of concentration are in both the civil identification area (ID cards, passports, voter registrations, driver licenses, social welfare, etc) and the criminal justice area.
