If multiple users were enrolled same fingerprints or face, then there can be some security problem.

To prevent user enroll with duplicated fingerprint or face, duplication check in BioStar 2 is supported from BioStar 2 v2.7.8.

You need to match BioStar 2 server version and device firmware versions to enable 'Duplicate Check' feature.

1. Basic information of 'Duplicate Check' feature

  • To support this feature, you need to use both over BioStar 2 v2.7.8 and supporting firmware.
  • It is supported when you use 1:N matching. (It is not supported when you use 1:1 matching)
  • If one user registered same fingerprints / faces, there will be no duplication check for those data.
  • Duplication checking time and speed will be different by the location of fingerprint / face data stored.
  • Even though there are many duplicated fingerprint / face users from current database, BioStar 2 and device will show 1 user information.
  • You can enable this feature in 'Slave' device, however, the function will not work.
  • If someone try to enroll user with duplicated biometric information, the registration would be fail. You can check the log through Monitoring and Settings - Audit Trail.


Caution

  • Duplication checking feature is supported when you enroll a user fingerprint or face  from device menu, not from BioStar 2.
