Jenetric handed role in 'smart borders' project at Frankfurt Airport


German biometic firm Jenetric has revealed that its technology will be used at a EU-led "smart borders" project.

The company's fingerprint scanner LIVETOUCH quattro has been used in a pilot project at the Frankfurt Main airport for several months, noted the firm.

For the integration into the border control system, Jenetric cooperated with the German
Federal Police and the IT security company secunet Security Networks.

In addition, the study is being developed in collaboration with the Federal Office for Information Security and the Federal Criminal Police Office.

The Federal Police is particularly interested in obtaining information on the experience of travelers with the autonomous operation of the device.

The company said today that a few months into the pilot, test results confirmed that the capture of travelers' fingerprints has gone smoothly and therefore the officers can now concentrate on the actual verification of the traveler’s identity.

"We are very pleased to make a significant contribution to meet the increasing needs for security of borders and we hope that the project will continue to address the future demand for our scanners," says Roberto Wolfer, one of the founders and CEOs of JENETRIC GmbH.
