Rank One Computing (ROC) today announced its partnership with the Modular Open Source Identity Platform (MOSIP) to offer ROC’s industry leading biometric matching technology to MOSIP’s adopting nations. ROC’s multi-biometric SDK provides the only US-developed biometric matching algorithms that are top ranked by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). With this partnership, countries can leverage MOSIP’s proven, scalable platform to develop foundational identity (ID) systems with the ROC SDK’s top-rated face and fingerprint matching technologies to minimize fraud and deliver secure public and private services worldwide.
“Rank One Computing powers critical solutions for U.S. military, law enforcement and Fortune 500 companies and is now available to the entire world through MOSIP’s vendor-agnostic platform,” said David Ray, General Counsel and Chief Partnership and Privacy Officer. “We are excited to partner with MOSIP to provide customers worldwide with access to the best and most trusted identity technology the U.S. has to offer.”
Existing and future MOSIP-based large-scale identity projects, including biometric passports, voter registration and deduplication, border control, law enforcement, social services and a wide range of other applications can now use the ROC SDK to deploy secure, reliable person identification. The ROC SDK is a comprehensive, scalable software development kit that delivers single or multi-biometric identification through any operating system – Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android and ARM Linux.
“We believe in collaborating with our partners to make available a variety of cutting-edge technology solutions that work seamlessly with MOSIP,” said Sanjith Sundaram, Head – Biometric Ecosystem for MOSIP. “This helps adopting countries to achieve their goal of inclusion in a much more efficient and cost-effective way. We look forward to working with Rank One Computing and leveraging their expertise in the field in contribution to the common goal that we all share.”
