  • Only one license per driver

  • One to one biometrically based verification of identity, interoperable so as to serve as infrastructure for commercial use

  • Replacement of old license non compulsive, when it expires the driver gets a new one

The consultant goes back to his office and two days later comes back with the following recommendation:


General information

  • There are 900,000 drivers in the province

  • Spread evenly 1/3 each, between new licenses, expirations and lost licenses they issue 240,000 per year in 200 working days, so each 8 hour day they process 1,200 people

  • There are 50 locations including central where drivers can go and get a license.  They are connected via fast DSL lines on the Internet.  In total 100 workstations will be deployed with multi-functionality:

    • 400 per day search and match 1:N against the entire database and issue new license if the person is not there

    • 400 per day verify the claimed identity 1:1 and replace expired license

    • 400 per day search and match 1:N against the entire database and 1:N and replace lost licenses.

  • Central will hold one database and servers to cope with demand

  • They will capture 4 fingers plain impressions and search 1:N with 2 fingers

  • Will use INCITS 378 as interoperable template embedded in 2MB contactless smartcard

  • Printing of licenses is local in each of the 50 offices

  • Biometric searches must not last more than 1/2 hr, so drivers can come and get their card the same day if they wish to.

  • 500KB per record using standard interoperable WSQ algorithm to compress images and a high quality photo compressed with JPG

  • With 4 fingers the records on matchers will consume about 4KB each of RAM
