Multi-biometric ID for Mexico

February 2017 Access Control & Identity Management, Government and Parastatal (Industry)

Safran Identity & Security has been awarded a five-year contract by the National Electoral Institute of Mexico (INE) for its multi-biometric identification system and related services. With this new contract, INE confirms its trust in Safran to conform and update the Mexican national voter registry that enables fair and efficient elections.

As one of the world’s largest systems of its kind, the multi-biometric identification system ensures each voter has a unique identity by detecting false or double-identity cases in realtime. It uses both fingerprint and facial recognition to help ensure that each Mexican citizen is registered only once in the national voter rolls.

Safran has supported INE with its multi-biometric system since 2005. The latest contract comprises the modernisation of the system with the latest biometric technology and an upgrade from 2 to 10 fingerprint matching. The new system will be able to register 113 million fingerprint captures and portrait images. These will be matched against the largest database in the region. Safran’s solution is designed to support up to 120 000 transactions per day.

“As an autonomous public entity responsible for organising federal elections, we need to ensure the trustworthiness of the process,” said René Miranda Jaimes, executive director of the Electoral Federal Registry at INE. “For more than 10 years, Safran has proven it fulfils this demanding requirement. By choosing the world leader in biometric technology, INE is making sure it is well prepared for the future with state of the art technology.”
