Research Institution

For the past six (6) months, Lumidigm has conducted basic research on an anti-spoofing deep tissue sensor for detecting live tissue under a Research and Development Task Order through Unisys funded by the Department of Defense for Biometrics R&D support for NSA. This project is yielding a research prototype sensor which will be delivered by March 12, 2004 to NSA. The research prototype sensor will be used to test for biological skin substitutes, animal tissue, and thin films of material applied to living human skin that could be used for creating a false finger print,. Based on this basic research, Lumidigm is proposing to conduct a feasibility study to reduce the sensor size and determine how to tightly integrate it with a finger print touch sensor and/or finger swipe sensor. This study will also determine the limitations of commercially available fingerprint sensors, the potential characteristics needed to test for liveness simultaneously when a finger is place on the finger print sensor and will determine the size and functional requirements to create a prototype finger print anti-spoofing sensor to be built in a follow-on project.
