Versatile Across Biometric Specifications

Ani is a cross-platform software library that enables an application to read, write, edit, and verify ANSI/NIST-ITL formatted transaction files. It is fully customizable to support any specification, including the latest Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Defense (DoD) Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification (EBTS).

Pure Java Implementation For Seamless Integration

Ani was built from the ground up to be easily integrated into virtually any biometric related application regardless of the platform. Ani is 100% Java so you can rest assured that your application remains inside the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) removing the risk of running native code.

Full Transaction Verification Support

Ani provides a fully customizable verification engine to quickly identify specification violations. The engine includes a full suite of common verification functions as well as an easy-to-use JavaScript API. It even supports Aware’s verification file format to make transitioning to Ani a breeze.

All-Inclusive Software Package

Unlike other products on the market, there is no need to purchase an additional image support library for WSQ and JPEG-2000 formatted images. Ani comes fully integrated with Lakota Image, which includes the industry’s first pure Java WSQ library to be certified by the FBI. This integration makes image insertion and extraction completely seamless regardless of the record type and image file format.
