Migrant Security and Identity Management

Biometric Identity Solution

Manage migrant identities, secure migrant camps and streamline delivery of humanitarian assistance through the use of biometrics

The Challenge

Transit countries bear a heavy burden as they face the European migration crisis. Between struggling to balance security imperatives and the need to provide humanitarian assistance, these countries need solutions to help them deal with migrant flows. Most migrants lack reliable identity documents — and fraud, misrepresentation and forgeries are not uncommon. Without a reliable way to manage migrant identities, transit countries are faced with a challenging and potentially dangerous situation.

The Solution

Biometrics is emerging as the solution to the migrant identity management problem. The Crossmatch migrant security solution uses biometrics to secure migrant camps, facilitate delivery of assistance and build the situational awareness of migrant flows that transit countries urgently require. Already adopted by law enforcement and border security around the world, biometrics can uncover travel histories and criminal associations. We use biometrics to query the records of host nation databases, INTERPOL and partner governments to provide front-line officers with key information in real time.

Our migrant security solution helps nations make sense of migrant flows with configurable functionality:

Capture high quality images.

Crossmatch biometric fingerprint hardware always captures high-quality, usable prints. When security is at stake, you can’t expect anything less.

Make workflows friendlier.

The Crossmatch ArcID platform provides a central portal for managing migrant identities. Using biometrics as a fraud-proof baseline, ArcID gives front line officers an easy-to-use tool for every facet of the identity management process.

Provide officers with options.

Biometric collection devices from Crossmatch allow security officials to capture usable data—wherever, whenever. Whether capture is happening at a fixed terminal or through a handheld, officers can get the information they need.

Ensure interoperability.

We build our hardware and software with interoperability in mind. Crossmatch solutions adhere to international specifications and can facilitate biometric sharing with INTERPOL or any international partners, expanding the reach of your solution.

With decades of biometric acquisition and identity management expertise – including deployments in some of the most challenging environments around the world – Crossmatch provides more than just high-quality hardware and software solutions. We provide assurance, even in your most critical identity applications.

Our portable jumpkit provides high-quality biometric capture in a self-contained, plug-and-play format for enrollment in harsh and unpredictable environments. Our wireless handheld devices take mobile even further — with small form-factors and capture capabilities in ambient light. Meanwhile, our hardware operates within our ArcID modular software platform, which is highly configurable and provides powerful administration tools to maximize your control of the solution.
