Based in Germany with local subsidiaries in North America, the UK and Asia-Pacific, Softpro provides biometric solutions that are increasingly used in industries such as banking, insurance, retail, government, health, life sciences and defence. Softpro’s customers include American Express, Bank of America, Barclays, JPMorgan Chase, Lloyds TSB, Saudi Chamber of Commerce and Wachovia.
Its partners include Fujitsu Siemens Computers/Fujitsu, IBM, Microsoft, Motion Computing, Toshiba, Wacom and APP Informatik Davos.
As well as developing its research links with the Department of Electronics, Softpro will fund a prize for the best-performing student on the University’s MSc programme in Information Security and Biometrics.
Professor Michael Fairhurst, Head of the Department of Electronics at Kent and co-founder of the United Kingdom Biometrics Institute (UKBI), said: ‘I am pleased that such an experienced and respected company in international biometric solutions is supporting our MSc programme. The course is already proving to be extremely popular, and it will greatly benefit from Softpro’s support and endorsement.’
Frank Fuchs, CEO of the Softpro Group, added: ‘We highly value the University of Kent’s expertise in biometrics and are happy to support its MSc in Information Security and Biometrics. Softpro is looking forward to continuing its work with Kent on ISO standards and signature-related research projects.’
Kent’s MSc in Information Security and Biometrics provides an advanced level of learning in the field of biometrics and security, providing students with a thorough understanding of the theories, concepts and techniques for the design, development and effective use of secure systems. It also aims to produce graduates who are readily capable of adapting to changes in the field and leading it in innovation.

Researchers create new technique for manipulating polarization of terahertz radiation
20.07.2017 | Brown University
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
