Success Stories
"We needed better control over the computers in our laboratories, which are the operating basis for multi-million dollar research equipment . . . all this requires is to teach users how to place their finger on Zvetco's biometric scanner during their first enrollment, and they can then log on and off the machines with the touch of a finger.”

About CJIS Biometric Compliance

Zvetco Biometrics enables you to meet and exceed CJIS security requirements for accessing state and national CJIS data bases via the implementation of biometrics as a second factor in the authentication of users wishing to access the CJIS at the municipal, state and federal levels. This can be achieved in a variety of ways and at different levels within the organization.

CJIS and Desktop Security

Zvetco Biometrics can perform a domain lockdown of any desktop, laptop, thin or Zero clients with tight integration into Active Directory or eDirectory from Novell. Any user wishing to access the CJIS via a Zvetco Biometrics’ controlled laptop or desktop would have to authenticate prior to initiating any searches or transactions by use of their fingerprint. This alleviates the need for users to remember cumbersome passwords and eliminates all of the well-known password related problems. In brief, we provide tight biometric integration with the following platforms:

  • Active Directory
  • Novell eDirectory
  • Thin and/or Zero Clients
  • Desktops
  • Laptops

Application Security

Zvetco Biometrics can also provide turn-key solutions for locking down applications; both, client-server and web based by means of a user’s fingerprint. Once more, the user is relieved of having to remember passwords and security is significantly heightened thus, exceeding compliance standards.

The Zvetco Advantage

Zvetco products utlize built in protections against ESD (Electro-Static Discharge), redundant overcurrent defenses and all metal construction all Zvetco readers provide a level of ruggedness and reliability that are not found in any other reader in the market. This equates to superior longevity and the elimination of product refreshes that add significantly to the overall cost of a biometric initiative and needlessly cripple your already strained budgets.

Background

The CJIS Division was established in February 1992 to serve as the focal point and central repository for criminal justice information services in the FBI. It is the largest division in the FBI. Programs initially consolidated under the CJIS Division included the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR), and Fingerprint Identification. In addition, responsibility for several ongoing technological initiatives was transferred to the CJIS Division, including the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), NCIC 2000, and the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). From this, many states have adopted their own CJIS and today, there is a nationwide CJIS network that exchange data freely between the states and federal government. At the CJIS Division of the FBI statisticians are compiling vast amounts of data from law enforcement into a series of regular reports detailing the state of crime in communities across the country.

Each state also has their own Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) which acts as the central repository of criminal history records and provides criminal identification screening to criminal justice and non-criminal justice agencies and private citizens to identify persons with criminal warrants, arrests and convictions that impact employment, licensing, eligibility to purchase a firearm, as well as a variety of criminal justice functions. The state CJIS provides a clearinghouse of missing and endangered persons to assist law enforcement and the public in recovering missing children and adults, and provides information to criminal justice agencies and the public on career offenders, sexual offenders and predators. Additionally, the individual state CJIS provide statistical information regarding crime for use by policy-makers and that is of interest to the public, including the compilation of Uniform Crime Report (UCR) and Hate Crime information collected from local law enforcement agencies. State CJIS help ensure the quality of the data available and play a major role in the development of policy for national sharing of criminal justice information with the FBI and other states.

Benefits of CJIS

By integrating systems at the federal, state and local levels law enforcement organizations improve the quality of information, and thereby the quality of decisions, by eliminating error-prone redundant data entry. In addition, by sharing data between systems, integration typically improves the timely access to information, a critical factor at many justice decision points (for example, setting bail). Moreover, integration enables the sharing of crucial information without regard to time or space; multiple users can access the same records simultaneously from remote locations around the clock. Integration also substantially improves the consistency and reliability of information, and enables immediate access by key decision makers.

Errors in justice information can be greatly reduced by eliminating redundant data entry, which not only results in lower labor costs, but also significantly improves the quality of justice : an intangible that too often is measured by the size of civil suits resulting from improper confinement, improper release or other errors traceable to poor data quality or untimely access to critical information. In brief, the following benefits would be realized via a national network of CJIS.

  • Better Decision-Making
  • Reduced Redundant Data Entry
  • Reduced Delays in the Flow of Information Between Agencies
  • Improved Information Available to Agencies
  • Improved Staff Productivity
  • Reduced Paper Costs
  • Improved Staff Productivity
  • Reduced Dependence on Individuals With other Stakeholder Organizations
  • Reduced Time Locating Information or Data
  • Improved Data Integrity
  • Improved Statistics for Policy Decisions

This gives you, the end user, tight integration with the leading Match-on-Card solutions in the market today.

Meeting Standards

FIPS 201 and PIV leverage existing ANSI, ISO, IETF and other standards. Thousands of products including most operating systems, mobile and enterprise applications and services and physical access control system support PIV-I credentials because of these standards.

Remote Security

Your remote users wishing to access CJIS from outside the LAN can now do so without worry that your organization is exposing itself to malicious elements in the wild. Zvetco Biometrics can provide biometric security to Citrix (XenAPP integration), VPN’s and more. More important, because the fingerprint is the linchpin in the security process users do not have to remember cumbersome logon/password combinations that frustrate users and increase help desk calls dramatically.
