South Africa-based mobile biometrics provider BioRugged has met Open Source Modular Identity Platform (MOSIP) compliance requirements for its Face Camera biometrics system.
In an announcement, Hof Retief’s chief operating officer said the move means the Face Camera system can work on all BioRugged devices for mobile facial biometrics enrollment in accordance with MOSIP standards.
“The availability of the BioRugged SBI face camera for MOSIP also means that our full range of Mark and Marque products are now fully MOSIP compliant,” said Retief.
Also speaking on MOSIP compliance for Face Camera, BioRugged CEO Arnd Langguth said, “We strongly support and endorse the MOSIP initiative. India has proven how beneficial an identity platform can be for a country. MOSIP takes the approach to the next level and provides a vendor-neutral identification platform for many countries. While governments can invest in a durable platform without fear of vendor lock-in, the platform still allows third-party solutions to easily plug into the platform. »
In January, BioRugged said its system was being rolled out for biometrics-based patient registration in some rural areas of Mozambique by a nonprofit health organization, to migrate patient registration from procedures on paper.
At the ID4Africa event to be held in Marrakesh in June, the South Africa-based company announced that it will be exhibiting its range of MOSIP-compliant biometric products.
MOSIP also recently partnered with BixeLab to deliver a new modular framework for certification of biometric devices and software.
