VeriEye SDK

Iris identification for stand-alone and Web solutions

VeriEye iris identification technology is designed for biometric systems developers and integrators. The technology includes many proprietary solutions that enable robust iris enrollment under various conditions and fast iris matching in 1-to-1 and 1-to-many modes.

Available as a software development kit that allows development of stand-alone and Web-based solutions on Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android platforms.

System Requirements

There are specific requirements for each platform which will run VeriEye-based applications.
Click on specific platform to view the corresponding requirements.

Microsoft Windows platform requirements

  • Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 10.
  • PC or laptop with x86-64 (64-bit) compatible processors.
    • 2 GHz or better processor is recommended.
    • x86 (32-bit) processors can still be used, but the algorithm will not provide the specified performance.
    • AVX2 support is highly recommended. Processors that do not support AVX2 will still run the VeriEye algorithms, but in a mode, which will not provide the specified performance. Most modern processors support this instruction set, but please check if a particular processor model supports it.
  • At least 512 MB of free RAM should be available for the application. Additional RAM is required for applications that perform 1-to-many identification, as all biometric templates need to be stored in RAM for matching.
  • Iris scanner:
    • VeriEye SDK includes support modules for several iris scanners under Microsoft Windows platform.
    • Iris images in BMP, JPG or PNG formats can be processed thus almost any third-party iris capturing hardware can be used with the VeriEye technology if it generates images in the mentioned formats.
    • Integrators may also write plug-ins to support their iris cameras using the plug-in framework provided with the Device Manager from the VeriEye SDK. The integrators should note, that the most accurate iris recognition is achievable only when iris images are captured with near-infrared cameras and appropriate illumination. However, it is still possible to recognize irises with reasonable accuracy, when the irises are captured with regular cameras, using proper illumination and focus, and choosing proper environment. See our testing results for details.
  • Database engine or connection with it. VeriEye templates can be saved into any DB (including files) supporting binary data saving. VeriEye Extended SDK contains the following support modules for Matching Server on Microsoft Windows platform:
    • Microsoft SQL Server;
    • MySQL;
    • Oracle;
    • PostgreSQL;
    • SQLite.
  • Network/LAN connection (TCP/IP) for client/server applications. Also, network connection is required for using Matching server component (included in VeriEye Extended SDK). VeriEye SDK does not provide communication encryption with the Matching server, therefore, integrators should secure the communication by themselves.
  • Microsoft .NET framework 4.5 or newer (for .NET components usage).
  • One of following development environments for application development:
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 or newer (for application development under C/C++, C#, Visual Basic .Net)
    • Sun Java 1.7 SDK or later

Android platform requirements

    • If you have a custom Android-based device or development board, contact us to find out if it is supported.
  • ARM-based 1.5 GHz processor recommended for iris processing in the specified time. Slower processors may be also used, but the iris processing will take longer time.
  • At least 256 MB of free RAM should be available for the application. Additional RAM is required for applications that perform 1-to-many identification, as all biometric templates need to be stored in RAM for matching.

However, it is still possible to recognize irises with reasonable accuracy, when the irises are captured with cameras, which are built in smartphones or tablets, using proper illumination and focus, and choosing proper environment. See our testing results for details.
  • Network/LAN connection (TCP/IP) for client/server applications. Also, network connection is required for using Matching server component (included in VeriEye Extended SDK). VeriEye SDK does not provide communication encryption with the Matching server, therefore, integrators should secure the communication by themselves.
  • PC-side development environment requirements:
    • Java SE JDK 6 (or higher)
    • Eclipse Indigo (3.7) IDE
    • Android development environment (at least API level 19 required)

  • Iris scanner:
    • At the moment iris scanner support on iOS platform should be implemented by integrators. The integrators should note, that the most accurate iris recognition is achievable only when iris images are captured with near-infrared cameras and appropriate illumination. However, it is still possible to recognize irises with reasonable accuracy, when the irises are captured with cameras, which are built in smartphones or tablets, using proper illumination and focus, and choosing proper environment.
