Softpro supports Information Security and Biometrics at Kent

02.08.2007
The Softpro Group, a leading vendor of systems for the capture and verification of handwritten signatures, is to support the University of Kent’s MSc programme in Information Security and Biometrics.

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.

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Explanation for puzzling quantum oscillations has been found

So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics

Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...

Im Focus: Dozens of binaries from Milky Way's globular clusters could be detectable by LISA

Next-generation gravitational wave detector in space will complement LIGO on Earth

The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...
