AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) Turnkey Solutions

Nikuv’s AFIS turnkey software and hardware solutions makes it easier for law enforcement officials to track suspects through a criminal and civil biometric database. AFIS is a database with fingerprints, electronic images and relevant demographic details and information. The automated system provides data that corresponds to fingerprints or pictures and has highly accurate matching capacities and cross-referencing capabilities. The systems include the latest best-of-breed hardware, AFIS software, data conversion technology and all aspects necessary to run the systems efficiently. Its card conversion system can immediately access information based on individual fingerprints or palm prints and eliminates duplication, forgery or errors.

e-ID Card System

The e-ID card system keeps information collected in a highly secured fashion online that can be accessed only via government agencies and each agency can be granted customized access to data pertinent to the enquiring or reporting government body. The PCs, integrated cameras and scanners allow government offices to verify and update information quickly and efficiently, as well as track potential fraud. Hologram, ultraviolet, specialty inks, ghost imaging, micro-processing chips and triple layered lamination processes make the e-cards tamper-resistant and nearly impossible to forge.

Population Registration

Nikuv enables governments to update, access and secure the population database with the most advanced software available today. Government offices and agencies are connected through an intranet telecommunication system that shares a highly secured and encrypted network with data protection via multiple online security processes.
