IDEMIA stands out in latest NIST latent fingerprint benchmark for forensic applications


Share this content


IDEMIA has proven itself to be a leading provider of accurate algorithms – on both fingerprint and palm datasets – in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)’s latest Evaluation of Latent Fingerprint Technologies – (ELFT).

NIST ELFT is the reference benchmark for latent fingerprint accuracy, greatly enhancing the previous ELFT-EFS benchmark.

The ELFT benchmark includes both fingerprint and palm print accuracy, testing and assessing accuracy with image only or with additional features positioned by experienced human fingerprint examiners, such as minutiae.

While crime scene latent fingerprint features are the most challenging, as they are often incomplete or poor quality, IDEMIA achieves the most accurate matching algorithms for both fingerprint and palm datasets with accuracy 7% to 60% higher than rival algorithms.

IDEMIA is truly committed to the highest level of technology to provide fast, accurate and fair solutions.

These ELFT results come on the heels of other high-ranking NIST benchmarks already achieved this year, further demonstrating IDEMIA’s technology leadership.
