What is ONYX? 


ONYX® is our patented software-based biometric solution that uses a device's camera to capture a user's unique fingerprint. The ONYX software library is delivered as an SDK so developers can integrate with any application quickly and easily.

Whether you are a law enforcement agency looking to put a fingerprinting solution in the hands of as many officers as possible or looking to harness the power of ONYX to secure your mobile banking, enterprise, or healthcare app, we have a cost effective answer.  Looking to secure a website with the most widely used form of biometrics on the planet?  We've got a solution for that as well.

Greater Accuracy

Images we capture from a mobile device's camera are "normalized" with our software resulting in more accurate fingerprint rendering and identification.

If your finger is dirty or it has a scratch, Onyx will still capture your fingerprint. Our patented image processing algorithms can compensate for damaged or partially obstructed prints because the collection is touchless, eliminating arbitrary pressure related distortion seen with touch-based sensors.


Better Reliability

Because Onyx is touchless you don't have to worry about the sensor getting dirt or oil build up over time, which causes reliability issues with touch-based sensors.

Another inherent problem with touch-based sensors is pressure. When various amounts of pressure are applied to a touch-based sensor the image collected can be distorted.  Onyx's touchless approach removes pressure from the equation.

We can reliably capture 99% of the population - regardless of age or skin pigmentation.


Inherently Progressive

Mobile device manufacturers already have huge Research and Development departments working to constantly make their cameras better. It only makes sense to let them do the hardware improvements, allowing us to concentrate on making our software better and ensuring it’s compatible with the latest camera enhancements

By putting our focus on software, not hardware, we are positioned to take advantage of emerging technologies. 


Fast & Easy Deployment and Integration

Unlike the more common hardware solutions, Onyx is entirely software-based, which gives us the ability to deploy it faster than those that are hardware-based.

Because Onyx is a software library, we can bypass the manufacturing/warehousing/delivery/implementation issues our competitors are presently grappling with.



Developers and manufacturers looking to incorporate biometric authentication into their devices and systems can easily integrate Onyx without having to incur the expense of developing purpose-built hardware and concerning themselves with form factor redesigns.

This reduces cost and integration time so that you can get Onyx in the hands of your users faster than with typical hardware based touch sensors.

Onyx can also be integrated with your existing database/system.


Easy Management

Any time improvements are made and fully tested, the updated software can be pushed out right away to your end-users over the air. As hardware becomes more advanced, Onyx can capitalize on those improvements almost immediately.

Of course, additional functionality and user improvements can be distributed in exactly the same way.

User Experience

Finger Placement

Place the finger in view of the rear facing camera.

The Finger Guide

Center the finger inside the finger guide. ONYX will then auto-focus and auto-capture the fingerprint,
