3M Cogent

Web ID System


Web-Based Identity Verification Solution

3M™ Cogent Web ID System provides a rapid, practical, and secure method of comparing live fingerprints to a database of stored prints for positive identification of an individual. Law enforcement agencies can use Web ID for real-time identification in various situations, such as remote identity check from a patrol car, jail release, parolee reporting, and prebooking identification.

3M™ Cogent BlueCheck™ II device captures high-quality fingerprint images and uses Bluetooth technology to wirelessly transfer the images to the Web ID application. Web ID then submits the package to a remote AFIS over a LAN or WAN network, and supports concurrent multi-database search on local AFIS, state AFIS, and on the FBI RISC database. With Web ID, no dedicated software is needed. Through the secure Web ID page, users can submit search transactions and receive results with a standard web browser.

3M Cogent was the first to deliver a large-scale fingerprint identification system incorporating web technology. This completely wireless solution can be fitted into patrol cars and can be easily taken into buildings, crime scenes, the far end of an airport terminal, and many other locations. The Web ID with BlueCheck II solution removes the confining entanglement of wires, thus providing mobile biometric verification and identification of subjects anywhere.
