Author: huifan Time: 2017-08-21
Safran Identity & Security renewed its service and maintenance contract with the National Identity Management Commission of Nigeria (NIMC), which includes the upgrade of the existing automatic biometric identification system (ABIS).
The move comes a couple weeks after Nigeria’s minister of transportation approved a unified biometric identity card for operatives and workers to access any seaport facility in the country in an effort to improve security.
The company will provide the NIMC with the new MorphoBSS (Morpho Biometric Search Services), which uses three biometrics modalities including face, iris and fingerprints.
