Biometric Data Interchange

End-users of biometric technology are unaware of the data structure maintained by biometric providers' databases. The proposed system will enable end-users to examine the biometric file format structure as well as the metadata included with it, such as name and capture date.

Data Portability & Interoperability

Customers and users of biometric technologies require a solution to the problem of biometric data interoperability. Typically, systems have been created to link other systems using a specific format. With the need to communicate with different regional and international firms, the design's limitations became apparent.


The requirement to communicate with multiple authorities was exacerbated by the fact that each external agency supported and, thus, exchanged a variety of generations of data with its own variation. Iriscan provided its BDI(Biometric data interchange) to manage the conversion between the native formats of the external systems for total integration.

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to give consumers "power" over their personal information. To achieve this, data subjects have been granted various rights, including the ability to transfer their data. In contrast to the well-known access right, data portability allows people to get and utilize their own data in theory.
