Certified FbF® LiveScan for SWFT
Ideal for DSS-SWFT Cleared Contractors and Fingerprint Service Providers who Serve DoD Cleared Contractors and More!
SWFT (Secure Web Fingerprint Transmission) provides Department of Defense contractors the ability to easily transition to electronic fingerprint capture and submission under new government specifications – a process that is critical for expediting personnel security clearance background checks that impact US national security. By December 31, 2013, all cleared facilities are required to submit fingerprints electronically.
FbF® LiveScan is a new electronic fingerprint system that provides a Department of Defense compliant path for government contractors to capture and submit electronic fingerprint images for the purpose of background screening for government security clearances. FbF® LiveScan meets the following government standards:
- Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification (EBTS) 9.3 Appendix F Live Scan Specifications of the FBI’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (IAFIS) Image Quality Specifications
- Backwards compatibility with the Electronic Fingerprint Transmission Specification (EFTS) 7.1 format, which is used by the Secure Web Fingerprint Transmission (SWFT) program
Because FbF LiveScan is listed on the FBI IAFIS Approved Product List, users of FbF LiveScan can take advantage of the SWFT program to comply with the Department of Defense directives. While this standard is mandated, it also supports the goals established by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 and the implementation of Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12.
