Gemalto Cogent Automated Biometric Identification System (CABIS)


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Cogent Automated Biometric Identification System (CABIS)

The next generation of automatic biometric identification systems

Gemalto's Cogent Automated Biometric Identification System (CABIS) is a scalable and customizable solution that allows you to perform a range of tasks for processing, editing, searching, retrieving, and storing fingerprint, palm print, face and iris images and subject records. 

With hundreds of case files to process daily, forensic examiners need to find answers fast. They need a multi-biometric tool that can help them find answers quickly and efficiently. That is why we have put the know-how of 27 years of experience working with public authorities and law enforcement into our biometric software​ version 7, now available.

Gemalto Cogent ABIS makes it easier than ever for examiners to run complex multi-biometric solutions with remarkable matching accuracy and speed and helps government agencies to better protect and serve our communities.

​Its customizable workflows meet agencies' business requriements and allow easy integration with industry-standard biometric recording workstations/devices as well as with 3rd party systems.

Deployed in more than 80 countries

CABIS offers a wide array of features and functions for processing tenprints, palm prints, finger latents, palm latents, faces, and irises. As one of the most accurate systems in the world, CABIS ensures service resiliency while providing information safety through the use of built-in safeguards such as fault tolerant architecture, disk mirroring, automated database backups, and high availability options.

  • Accuracy: Superior algorithms and comprehensive set of powerful tools that analyze and enhance the quality of prints increasing the p​robability of a hit.
  • Speed: While transactions are processed in the background, users can concurrently perform multiple tasks swiftly and precisely.
  • Flexibility: Operates in a multitasking environment and is built for expansion as demands and upgrade requirements arise.
  • Scalability: Manages cost effective growth in response to increasing customer demands.
  • Interoperability: Non-proprietary NIST record formats are used in database storage. As a result, the system can be interfaced with external ABIS systems, criminal history systems, Livescans, mobile devices, web-based solutions, as well as other information systems.​
Cogent AFIS technologies have been used in over 200 applications deployed in more than 80 countries from national biometric civil identification projects to border control and criminal records systems.  

We'll be glad to support your AFIS/ABIS project and share our expertise and best practices.
