PREVENTING IMPERSONATION WITH BIOMETRIC CANDIDATE AUTHENTICATION
AUTHENTRAC – BIOMETRICS BASED CANDIDATE AUTHENTICATION
A key priority for examination bodies in high stake exams is to ensure that it is the ‘Right Candidate’ who is writing the examination. Verification of identity of the test taker has traditionally been done by checking the signature and the photo in the attendance sheet. These methods have loopholes that have been exploited for unfair gains and are not auditable, objective or scientific.
AuthenTrac, a patent pending biometrics based candidate authentication solution from MeritTrac is designed to address this challenge that organizations are facing today. The in-classroom biometrics based authentication solution is designed specifically for an examination environment. The device helps test administrators capture biometric (fingerprint) records of test takers during the examination which is later verified during counselling in case the candidate qualifies.
The AuthenTrac Advantage
AuthenTrac is a biometric authentication solution that can be used in classroom, there by replicating the age-old authentication methods. This ensures that the candidates are not forced to report at the examination centre hours before the examination for their biometrics registration / verification.
The solution captures the biometrics information of candidates during their examination without disturbing them and verifies this information during the time of counselling. This has been widely used by leading examination bodies and for high stake admission and recruitment tests to prevent impersonation.
AuthenTrachelps examination bodies in cleansing their examination from fraudulent practices like impersonation. MeritTrac offers end to end candidate authentication service thereby allowing the examination body to focus on their core functions. The solution is administered in-classroom thereby making the process convenient for all stakeholders.
