  1. A Biometric Services Platform and user interface application will be used to verify the identify of those taking the Cambridge Advanced English Exam in an attempt to eliminate exam fraud. The biometric verification solution based on the COTS Biometric Services Platform and user interface development services are supplied by Aware, a global provider of biometrics and medical imaging software. The advanced solution will form the basis of Identica, which is part of Cambridge Assessment's exam fraud prevention services. Thanks to the Identica system, proctors can now easily capture ISO-compliant facial images of candidates upon their arrival at the test centre. Organisations can then use these images when they want to verify whether a specific candidate presenting a certificate is really the candidate who took the test. An upgraded system can also support further biometric modalities including fingerprints. Identica will be used for the first time by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations for its Cambridge English Advanced test, one of the English language tests that are accepted by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for student visa applications. "We launched Identica to enhance the security of our exams, which are widely used for immigration and citizenship, higher education and business, and need the highest levels of integrity," Sarah Corcoran, Director at Cambridge Assessment stated. Cambridge ESOL test centers all over the world have started to use the service and it is expected to be used in over 130 countries by the end of 2011.
