• A Powerful Identity Management System


    The DaonEngine Identity Management System stores identity data and then securely shares that data with other systems. It is designed to form the core component of any identity management solution for organizations that require identity lifecycle management and strong identity authentication.

    DaonEngine is used in a variety of mission-critical identity management systems including government identity programs, border management programs, trusted identity traveler programs, and enterprise credentialing systems.

    DaonEngine offers:

    • Secure Identity Storage
    • Identity Searching (multi-modal biometric including fingerprint, face, iris and voice)
    • Biometric Verification & Identification
    • Data Transformation & Search Result Fusion


    All through a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Our integration framework allows for the easy interchange of data between external systems and the DaonEngine platform. We also offer SnapIns and Adapters for all leading biometric vendor technology – giving you flexibility of choice without compromising security.

    Key Features


    The DaonEngine Platform is vendor independent and future-ready for new modalities or technology updates. This reduces the total cost of ownership and future-proofs your investment in an identity management system.

    Our proven technology has been selected to secure hundreds of millions of identity records around the world.  Some of the key features include:

    Population Management

    Categorize and group your identity information into different population sets. Each group can have individual security rules and permissions. This allows you to enforce a strict logical separation of data within a common physical infrastructure.

    Open / Extensible Architecture

    Many identity management systems on the market today are not built on an open, extensible architecture. This limits the flexibility of their solution and makes it difficult for their customers to integrate other technologies. DaonEngine future-proofs your investment by providing the flexibility to add or change individual solution components throughout a system life cycle. This reduces the total cost of ownership.

    Security & Privacy

    The Daon Identity Platform has been designed to provide the highest levels of data security through the application of numerous security features.

    • Encrypts all sensitive Identity data within the system
    • Provides a secure audit trail for all system transactions
    • Uses FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic modules


    Integration with External Systems

    Our framework enables you to provision data to other external systems based on specific events. For example, you can create a business rule so that when you update an ID address in the DaonEngine, it automatically informs any other system (such as a mailing system) of the change.

    Equally important is the ability to take an identity from the DaonEngine database and use it to search within other systems. For example, an immigration department may store the identity data of everyone applying for a Visa. But it can also take that information and use it to search a criminal database owned by a police department.

    Virtualized Environment Support

    The Daon Identity Platform is designed to run on public, private and hybrid cloud computing virtualized environments and is provided with automated (DevOps) scripts for ease of deployment and management allowing the system to elastically scale as the population grows.

  • Rapid enrollment applications tailored to your requirements


    DaonEnroll eliminates the cost of building and maintaining custom enrollment solutions by providing a common enrollment platform that integrates with any standards-based Identity Management System, including DaonEngine.

    DaonEnroll reduces need for domain knowledge around identity management, biometrics and document capture, thus helping to increase project success rates and timeliness; reduces cost, resource requirements and technical risk.

    DaonEnroll includes the following capabilities:

    • Collect, Verify and Store Identity Data
    • Live Photo Image Auto-Capture, ICAO Compliance Checking, Intelligent Cropping
    • Finger – Single/2 print/10 print/Rolls capture, quality check, sequence check.
    • Iris – Dual Iris Capture
    • Signature Capture
    • Intelligent Document Scanning for Passport and ID cards; Flatbed document scanning for breeder documents; Smartcard query, data capture and validation
    • Application Workflow for Enrolment and Identity Verification
    • All of the relevant standards and best practices built-in

  • The “glue” between your web application and

    data acquisition device


    DaonCapture is for customers who prefer to use a web-based application in
    lieu of a Kiosk or PC. DaonCapture allows you to interact with any biometric
    or document capture device
    , such as fingerprint readers, iris scanners, etc. directly from your web browser.

    DaonCapture components can be embedded into third party applications to quickly enable the acquisition of biometric and document data.

    DaonCapture comes in two editions:

    1. DaonCapture.JS components are designed to be embedded into HTML5 web applications.
      These are HTML5 components and do not rely on third party technologies such as ActiveX or Java Applets.
    2. DaonCapture.Net controls are also available and can be used with Microsoft .Net applications for Windows.

  • Turning Data into Insights


    DaonInsights is an analytics and reporting framework that can perform analytics on data in DaonEngine (data and quality by age, gender, etc.), and generate summary transaction statistics, data quality metrics, and operational performance reports.

    daoninsights-1DaonInsights provides an interactive set of reports that gives users a view of the performance of the biometric system in a DaonEngine solution.

    The following is some of the information that is available through DaonInsights:

    • Identity Population
    • Biometric Data (Quality and Modality)
    • Service Usage and Errors
    • Biometric Verification (Hit/No Hit Stats)
    • Biometric Identification Score Distribution, FAR etc.
    • Biometric threshold & candidate list size including “what if” analysis to aid with balancing security versus cost of investigations
    • Insights into capacity/throughput of system

  • DaonAdjudicate provides functionality to distribute biometric adjudication to both experts and non-experts.


    Using DaonAdjudicate will allow your organization to utilize the power of your extended workforce to aid with decision making in regards to biometric searches.

    DaonAdjudicate is supplied as a HTML5 web component that can be embedded into case management and Business Process Management (BPM) task forms to display search results, information and images from DaonEngine to aid in decision making by investigators. The DaonAdjudicate HTML5 component can be embedded into any BPM product that has a web based user interface.

    The DaonAdjudicate web component allows an adjudicator to record the following data for each candidate in a search result list:

    • An overall “match” / “no match” decision on the candidate
    • A comment on the decision
    • The ability to mark regions of interest on the candidate image and record a comment for each


    The DaonAdjudicate tool provides the following tools to the adjudicator:

    • Display of fused biometric scores from the candidates
    • Display of Raw biometric scores from the candidates
    • Display of Quality Data (where available)
    • Display of biometric images
    • Pan & Zoom of biometric images
    • Brightness adjustment of biometric images
    • Contrast adjustment of biometric images
    • Color inversion of biometric images
    • Gray Scale conversion of biometric images
    • Mirroring of biometric images
    • Rotation of biometric images


    The DaonAdjudicate uses REST webservices to retrieve data about searches and candidate lists from DaonEngine and to persist adjudicator decisions. The BPM tool has access to these decisions to provide input to decision points in the workflow such as escalation processes.
