secunet biomiddle

secunet biomiddle facilitates the modular use of biometric system components and passport-readers within the different biometric and eID-applications. Both functions are provided via an integrative interface. This means maximum flexibility and investment protection. Internationally standardised interfaces allow for easy replacement of individual components in the highly dynamic market of biometric technologies. secunet biomiddle communicates with client-applications via a service-oriented interface which makes the middleware independent from system platforms and programming languages. Integration cannot be simpler or faster.

Acknowledged as standard

A joint development by secunet and the Federal Office for Information Security, secunet biomiddle is considered as the preferred architecture and reference implementation for using biometrics in the field of electronic ID documents.

Use cases

secunet biomiddle is the perfect solution in all cases in which different biometric system-components and passport-readers should and must be employed flexibly. This can be the case at border control or when applying for electronic ID documents, for example.

Via standard-oriented interfaces, secunet biomiddle can also easily be integrated in your complete eID-solution. We would be happy to help you with this.

The advantages of secunet biomiddle

  • Investment security and flexibility through a standard-oriented approach
  • Modular and scaleable architecture in order to meet various requirements – from local pilots up to national solutions
  • Independent from manufacturers, biometrics devices or algorithms
  • SOAP-interface for connecting client-applications
