Cranbury, N.J. – Sept. 22, 2021 – Learn how the federal government is using iris biometrics for the collection of personal identity and authentication data by joining Iris ID, the global leader in iris recognition technology for 20 years, at Connect: ID 2021, Oct. 5-6 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.

Agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are vetting iris-based technology for uses such as identifying people crossing U.S. borders and processing passengers at airport security checkpoints.

“In addition to its unrivaled accuracy, iris-based identity authentication technology is contactless, an important consideration during the current COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mohammed Murad, vice president, global sales and business development Iris ID. “Also, the cost of iris-based cameras is now the same as those capturing only faces for identification purposes.”

Iris ID will be demonstrating revolutionary new distance technology, which provides a dual high-quality, ISO standards-compliant iris and face capture solution, will be displayed at Iris ID’s booth #307.

Tim Meyerhoff, director, North America, Iris ID, and Jason Thompson, assistant chief, U.S. Border Patrol, will discuss current U.S.-Mexico border identity verification methods in a live presentation, “Biometrics on the Border,” set for 3:30 p.m. Oct. 5.
