28 June 2017 16:11 GMT

Iris-based identity management solution provider IriTech has partnered with barcode technology provider HD Barcode LLC to develop HD IrisCheck, the "world’s first" iris verification ID card solution working with smartphones.

In a statement, the firm said HD IrisCheck will enable entities to issue ID cards with encrypted iris data embedded in a proprietary 2D barcode called HD Barcode.

The firm said the solution provides significantly improved security compared to that of other public codes such as QR codes and is more cost-effective compared to IC chip smart cards, said IriTech.

"Embedding encrypted iris data into a secure barcode ensures information is readily available without a database, internet connection and even during power outages", a statement noted.

Using a mobile device with an integrated iris camera or connecting a mobile with a USB enabled iris camera such as IriShield, authorized personnel are able to instantly verify an individual’s identification with HD IrisCheck.

The solution utilizes the mobile device’s normal camera to read and decrypt the iris-barcode and its integrated iris camera (or an external IriShield camera) for matching.

"HD IrisCheck is a revolutionary identity management solution as it enables identification through mobile devices without requiring a database nor network".
