Cloud-Based Identity Management


CloudID is a highly modular, SOA-based software platform that delivers an unsurpassed ability to rapidly develop and deploy highly secure, yet flexible standards-based identity solutions. It continuously adapts to evolving customer requirements and emerging market demands. It truly delivers on the promise of Future Proof Identity.

Two significant innovations differentiate this next generation identity platform:

  • CloudID extends the flexible, technology/vendor- independent “plug-in” approach, which ImageWare invented for biometric applications across the entire biometric identification system. Thus,creating a layered, highly modular product suite.
  • CloudID achieves optimal performance whether delivered as part of traditional on-premise client server computing solutions, or embedded in cloud-based services.

IWS CloudID is easily incorporated into new or existing cloud-enabled environments or integrated as cloud-ready software into traditional networked client server and data center IT infrastructures. CloudID achieves optimal performance in either configuration and is easily transitioned from non-cloud to cloud environments.

IWS CloudID Applications

IWS CloudID applications are modular and single-purposed, highly configurable, extensible, easily customized, and integrates directly with IWS CloudID server products and third-party solutions. They work independently, or in conjunction, to provide customers with cloud-based identity management and access verification. ImageWare’s highly successful products, EPI Suite® and EPI Builder®, are also part of IWS’ CloudID applications.



GoCloudID

 

A revolutionary Software-as-a-Service plug-n-play platform for creating extraordinarily modular, flexible, and scalable biometric solutions. GoCloudID utilizes cloud-based identity management to provide anonymous biometric verification via both mobile and desktop platforms, ensuring user verification with no device dependency.

IWS CloudID Complete Suite

Leveraging more than a decade of expertise innovating advanced multi-modal biometric and credentialing solutions, ImageWare® Systems has developed a revolutionary enterprise class Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based software platform for creating extraordinarily modular, flexible, and scalable Future Proof Identity solutions.

IWS CloudID Server Platform
CloudID’s server platform is a set of configurable, server-based software modules designed to add or enhance biometric identity management and credential issuance capabilities to existing applications or support the development of these capabilities in new end-to-end applications. The servers include:

  • Card Management Server (CMS): manages card and credentialing
  • Identity Manager Server: manages biographic data
  • Document Manager: manages binary documents and images
  • EBTS Server: manages

IWS CloudID Applications
CloudID applications consists of a set of configurable client-based software applications that provides turnkey biometric enrollment, identification, and verification, as well as card printing and encoding capabilities. These applications are designed to enable rapid development and deployment of CloudID.

CloudID applications are modular and single-purposed, highly configurable, extensible, easily customized, and integrates directly with both CloudID server products and third-party solutions. The applications consist of: QuickCapture, QuickID, QuickBadge, EBTS Workstation, and EPI Builder.


IWS CloudID Business Services
CloudID business services consists of a set of configurable, business service layer software modules designed to enable existing or new applications to leverage the capabilities of the CloudID server platform. Core business service modules can be replaced or supplemented with third party offerings.

System integrators often rely on an ESB platform to create the business service layers required for the customer solution they develop. IWS CloudID is designed to integrate easily within these business service architectures and to achieve optimal performance as part of an ESB platform. Services can be described as:

  • Workflow, often specific and tailored to a solution
  • External to or integrated into Server Component

CloudID Business Services consists of a set of configurable, business service layer software modules designed to enable existing or new applications to leverage the capabilities of the CloudID server platform. Core business services modules can be replaced or supplemented with third party offerings.

System integrators often rely on an ESB platform to create the business service layers required for the customer solutions they develop. CloudID is designed to integrate easily within these business service architectures and to achieve optimal performance as part of an ESB platform.

There are two types of CloudID business services software modules. Best of breed, Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) software modules developed by ImageWare to address generalized solutions requirements, and customized modules that “stitch” workflow processes together for specialized solutions.

Custom business services software modules can be developed by ImageWare, system integrators, or other identity solution developers. Customized modules developed by ImageWare that have broad market application will be productized to become COTS components of CloudID. System integrators and other identity solution providers may also choose to productize their own customized modules to enhance their CloudID based identity solutions.

IWS CloudID Server Platform

Biometric Engine is a real-time (no copying of templates), high-performance, scalable, clusterable, biometric database. It is biometric algorithm agnostic (supports 70+ and growing) and hardware/software scalable to support large populations and multiple modalities.

IWS Biometric Engine Features:

  • Supports multiple biometric modalities
  • Supports multiple biometric algorithms
  • Real-time high performance biometric template cache
  • Supports multiple biometric query types including 1:1: verification, 1:N identification, X:N watch list, N:N duplicity checking and optional meta-data filtering
  • Supports biometric fusion (combining of multiple biometric modality scores into a single score)
  • Supports SOA interfaces for easy integration with ESB’s, thin, fat and mobile applications
  • Query Router / Query Engine interface
  • Supports distribution of biometrics, matching across multiple machines (both physical and virtual), and computing processors via the Query Router/Query Engine that is scalable to populations in the hundreds of millions
