MorphoSmart MSO® 1300 series
USB fingerprint devices for highly secure desktop applications

  • All-in-one solution: superior performance Enrollment, Verification and Identification
  • FIPS 201 and MINEX compliant Feature Extractor & Matcher onboard
  • FBI PIV IQS certification and fake finger detection available
  • Extensive security features, including encryption and digital signature
  • Smartcard reader variant for Match-on-Card applications

The MorphoSmart™ 1300 Series (or MSO 1300 Series) is a range of compact biometric USB devices. They use Morpho’s patented optical technology and fingerprint algorithms, both acknowledged worldwide for their high levels of performance and their exceptional robustness. Morpho fingerprint technology is ranked #1 by NIST for accuracy

The MorphoSmart™ 1300 Series offers a reliable, ergonomic and cost-effective solution for enrollment, identity verification and user identification. Their match-on-device or match-on-card functions guarantee the faultless protection of information and the security of desktop applications.

More than sensors, intelligent modules

While most sensors on the market are only capable of producing fingerprint images, the MSO 1300 Series devices are also capable of processing them internally, running powerful algorithms directly on their embedded processor.

  • Image Compression using WSQ algorithm from FBI/NIST
  • Biometric Feature Extraction to generate templates
    • Feature Extractor is MINEX/FIPS 201 compliant
    • Proprietary, ISO 19794-2 or ANSI 378 template formats available
    • Templates can be stored in the internal database (up to 10.000 templates)
  • Biometric Matching
    • Matcher is MINEX/FIPS 201 compliant
    • 1:1 authentication or 1:N identification (up to N = 5000 users)
    • High accuracy: the false acceptance rate (FAR) is configurable down to 10-8 (depending on the security requirements) and maintained regardless of number of users in database
    • Fast matching (refer to the table on right page)
    • Match-on-Card is also available on MSO 1350 / MSO 1350 E2
  • Capability of addressing juvenile finger
  • An anti-latency feature detects fingerprint traces reactivated under certain lighting conditions

Embedded security features

When sensitive data (image or template) needs to be shared with a Host System, the MSO 1300 Series devices are capable of securing them before dispatching.

Múltiples principios de seguridad

  • Multiple security principles available
    • Symmetric and asymmetric keys
    • Key derivation
    • Hashing algorithm
    • Random number generator
    • etc.
  • Image and Template Encryption for the sake of confidentiality
  • Template Signature (X9.84 standard) to guarantee the origin and the integrity of the data sent to the Host System
  • The communication channel between device and Host/Distant System can be protected using either Secure Tunneling or Offered Security mode
