 Watson Mini

Compact, Lightweight,

FBI Certified FAP 45 2-Print Scanner

– Automatic Spoof Rejection 

– Software-based Autodetect – Multiple Encryption Levels

Watson Mini encrypts communications between the scanner and external devices or applications using 256-bit AES keys and RSA algorithms. This closed-loop approach protects biometric data at the point of acquisition, across field wiring, and into the host application. By combining onboard security chipsets, private/public key structures, and industry best practices, Watson Mini ensures that sensitive personal information receives the highest level of scanner encryption currently available.

Watson Mini also contains protection against tampering through a unique calibration file installed in each serialized unit during production. Attempts to defeat Watson Mini’s security through disassembly or hardware damage alters the device’s calibration, rendering that device’s imagery unacceptable.
