ONYX is a mobile, contactless biometrics solution that leverages a device’s camera to capture the user’s unique fingerprint, enabling quick and easy collection of fingerprint biometrics. Telos added ONYX technology to IDTrust360 when it acquired the assets of Diamond Fortress Technologies in August 2021.

“When we acquired the assets of Diamond Fortress Technologies last year, it was largely based on the promise of ONYX,” said Marc Griffin, Executive Vice President of Security Solutions, Telos. “The results of the mFIT Challenge are just the beginning of realizing that promise. This patented contactless fingerprint technology will eliminate much of the friction in collecting biometric data for identity and access management and better serve our growing customer base.

Through the mFIT Challenge, NIST sought innovative new or enhanced mobile applications that access sensors available on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) mobile devices to capture high-quality digital fingerprint images. Entrants were asked to submit a mobile app that captures quality digital images of left and right hands. The ultimate goal of this challenge was to advance technology while preserving the form factor of the mobile device.
