Architecture and Workflow of BioLink AMIS

BioLink AMIS is easily customizable, fault-tolerant and price-affordable, implies low development and implementation costs and requires little or no experience in biometrics. It is also advantageous for its robust performance and supreme speed (hundreds of thousands of matches per second).

BioLink AMIS solution includes five major components:

Authenteon Cluster Array (ACA) Server

Provides 1-to-many fingerprint searching for enrollment or authentication. It also provides dynamic storage of all fingerprint templates in RAM and persistent storage of all 1-to-many matching algorithms.

Management Server

The Management Server(s) acts as the control front end and transaction manager to the ACA and is the hub of AMIS.

Database Server

Provides permanent storage of the client’s specific information as for fingerprints, face images, and demographic information. Currently, AMIS supports the following databases: SQL, Oracle, Informix, DB2.

Web Server

Web services are self-contained applications that can be published and invoked across the Web using XML-based protocols. BioLink Web Service allows clients to perform search in the BioLink AMIS fingerprint database as well as insert, update, and delete data. The end application can access Web Service through an XML-based SOAP protocol using any SOAP library for any platform.

Administration Workstation

Administration of AMIS components is provided through a Windows based administration workstations. Administrators can configure ACA Server Blades, Management Servers (CFE’s), as well as machine and user access security settings.

The system architecture displayed below summarizes the approach for the deployment of all BioLink AMIS components in the distributed operational environment.
