Miaxis Launches FAP30 Biometric Fingerprint Scanner with FBI-PIV Certification


Chinese manufacturer Miaxis Biometrics has revealed details about its latest biometric fingerprint scanner named SM-93, which is certified by the US Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) mobile ID standards for PIV (Personal Identity Verification).

The SM-93 is described as a mobile ID optical fingerprint authentication scanner that requires touch. Miaxis says the SM-93 reader is a 15mm optical sensor with an IP65 rated FAP30 optical sensor with Miaxis’ proprietary fingerprint recognition algorithm compatible with NIST MINEX III extractor and matcher. The scanner also has live finger detection capabilities to mitigate spoofing attacks and integrates easily with existing systems, according to the company’s announcement.

Being certified to the FBI-PIV standard means that the SM-93 can be used by the US government for single-fingerprint registration and verification.

At the end of May, Miaxis joined the open-source Modular Identity Platform (MOSIP) as an ecosystem partner after its SM-91M optical fingerprint authentication scanner received confirmation of compliance with MOSIP standards. The SM-91M scanner and SM-92M OEM module have also been certified for the FBI-PIV.
