Germany’s federal agency BSI certifies new Sagem Sécurité biometric sensor

London – October, 18, 2007

Sagem Sécurité's new fingerprint sensor, the MorphoSmart™ 300G, has just been certified for the German TRPDÜ guideline, which defines the technical requirements concerning acquisition, quality control and transmission of fingerprints for databases. The guideline was created by Germany's Federal Information Security Agency, the BSI.

The certificate follows the IQS-PIV (Personal Identify Verification Image Quality Specifications) certification the MorphoSmart™ product line obtained from the FBI.

The MorphoSmart™ 300G is the most compact product to be awarded this certification, yet at the same time it has a significant acquisition area of the fingerprint (21 x 21mm). It can be supplied with an integrated smart card reader or an OEM version for integration in a terminal.

It rounds out the MorphoSmart™ product line, which is already full of innovative products.

Sagem Sécurité offers a complete range of equipment and systems currently in use in more than 60 countries.
