Biometric Registration Kits turn any space into a registration office

In today’s digital landscape, tackling intricate identification and verification challenges is more critical than ever. Enter the era of Biometric Registration Kits —the ultimate, location-independent solution for robust identity management. Find out how these state-of-the-art biometric kits are revolutionising the way we approach identity verification, regardless of physical environment.

Modular nature

Biometric kits occupy a central position in the implementation of identification, border control and law enforcement systems, thanks to their modular and compact nature. Multiple carefully designed components, stored inside a rugged housing, transform any place into a biometric registration or verification office.

Large-scale identification and verification projects, such as pre-election voter registration and identity registration for digital civil registries, require a flexible and reliable approach. Governments need equipment that fits their requirements and is equally easy for operators to use. Employees work long hours while searching citizens, so they need an ergonomic device that can easily move between locations.

Portable enrollment and identification kits are among the fastest growing and most deployed biometric solutions for good reason; Any space can become a registration or verification office, even if there is no access to electricity or internet.

High-quality components

Biometric quality influences the performance and reliability of the logging database. Maintaining a high level of biometric capture is key during enrolment projects. Having to register citizens a second time can limit the budget and organisation.

For example, the quality of the fingerprint image can be influenced by the environment, incorrect use of the logging device, and the quality of the device. Our Biometric Registration Kits are designed with the environment and the user in mind, and feature high-quality components tailored to meet the highest standards.

Harnessing the power of biometrics

At Laxton, we work with governments to build civil registration databases and functional identity systems. Our solutions register everyone, even in the most remote areas. A Biometric Registration and Verification Kit turns any space into a full-fledged biometric office, ready to enrol large numbers of people. The battery has up to twelve hours of operating time, making the kit perfect for use in places without electricity.

Governments have many components to choose from, ranging from fingerprint readers, iris/facial scanners, printers, and signature pads.

Building an inclusive digital citizen registry

A Biometric Registration Kit allows governments to register their citizens in all areas, no matter how difficult the environment, with limited infrastructure. The registration process is less intimidating for citizens, as their biometrics are captured in their local environment.

A fundamental identity system is a critical national infrastructure and must be addressed with the highest standards of biometric capture and security. MOSIP is a fundamental open-source, open standards-based identity platform that helps governments implement a scalable and secure digital identity. It offers digital building blocks for designing national identification systems based on local laws and decisions.

Building an inclusive population registry with the MOSIP Registration Kit is now easier than ever.

Strengthening Schengen border security

Border management is a high priority for the European Union. The Schengen Area allows the free movement of people between participating countries. The standardisation of controls at border control points will ensure that all countries in the Schengen area follow the same security guidelines with regard to the movements in and out of all persons enjoying the right of free movement of the European Union. Third-country nationals shall be registered, and the corresponding biometric data shall be stored in a unified automated IT system.

The Schengen Zone has more than 1,800 land, air and sea border crossing points. Without a fixed flow of passengers or infrastructure, capturing biometrics is no easy task. The Traveller Registration Kit allows border agents to respond quickly to needs arising at border points or use it in low-traffic locations, such as small airports.

A complete yet compact solution

It is estimated that around one billion people worldwide lack proof of identity or access to a national identification system. In addition, many do not have secure, reliable or useful identification. The lack of identification, and therefore verification, harms both individuals and governments.

The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that 3.400 billion people have some form of identification but cannot use it in the digital world and miss out on opportunities for economic growth. A paper document may not be enough to open a digital bank account.

Biometric technology has taken a central position in the implementation of identification systems in developing countries and has expanded the capabilities of existing identification programs. During registration, the determination of a person’s identity is done through a biometric identification process.

The first step is to capture multimodal biometric data, such as a facial image, fingerprint, and iris scan. This data can establish unique identities in large populations in a matter of seconds. Duplicate registrations can be manually identified and examined to ensure that people’s data is entered into the database only once.

Biometric Voter Registration and Verification

An up-to-date voter register is crucial to reducing election fraud and creating the overall integrity of free and fair elections. However, it starts with accurate identification of eligible voters.

Before election day, citizens should be able to register voters. According to the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, 35% of the 130 countries surveyed capture fingerprints for their voter registration process. On Election Day, the captured data is compared with references stored in the voter registry, so that the person can be securely verified and marked as eligible to vote.

Creating these records can be an organizational challenge, especially in remote areas without internet or electricity. Technical skills are also not the same among all registration officers, and the registration process should be simple and ergonomic.

Robust biometric voter registration kits are ideal for registering large numbers of people, as the devices are integrated into a secure, easy-to-carry box. A user-friendly system will mean that a registration officer can operate the equipment with basic training.

Biometrics improve border control and law enforcement

Movement between countries is steadily increasing and identification checks are essential to ensure public safety. Border guards and law enforcement personnel are continually faced with the challenge of reducing staff and increasing rapid identification and verification tasks.

The focus on digital technological innovations in this field should be to create a fast and seamless process at land, sea and airport borders without compromising border security.

Strengthening law enforcement

Biometric technology strengthens the ability of law enforcement agencies to conduct background checks, identification in the field, and during extensive investigations. Our easy-to-use solutions meet the needs of those who put public safety first. Accurate and secure authentication and verification on the fly are a combination of many vital requirements for those in the security industry.

Meeting the requirements of your identification project (ID)

Each project is unique. Biometric kits are the perfect combination, combining all the components needed to enroll and register large numbers of people in any environment. Our kits provide mobility, speed and efficiency.

Robust and ergonomic case

Compact and robust, the biometric registration kit is safe to carry and comes with a waterproof design to IP67 standards and withstands a drop proof. The kit and its components are ergonomically tested and can be used without an internet connection with an operating time of 12 hours.

Customisable identity technology hardware

Each solution is tailor-made for the task ahead, thanks to the modular nature of the kit. Each peripheral device is neat and ready to use. The box may contain, among others, an iris scanner, a barcode reader, a fingerprint scanner, a laptop and a signature tablet.
