Biometric Systems from Gemalto Aims to Replace Conventional Security Methods
FREMONT, CA: Gemalto at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, has teamed up with consortium of security firms: Fingerprint Cards, Precise Biometrics and STMicroelectronics to introduce its new biometric fingerprint authentication solution. This new feature will be further deployed in wearable electronic devices in the coming years.
Supporting the project, Gemalto will provide its portfolio UpTeq chip on which the user’s biometric details are securely stored along with its Match-on-Card application that validates finger prints. In addition to this it also supplies the Allynis Trusted Service Hub which manages the solution through the entire lifecycle of the product.
Precise Biometrics’ contribution to the project is based on Precise Biomatch Embedded software which offers secure fingerprint recognition for products with small fingerprint sensors. Fingerprint Cards provides the fingerprint sensors on which Precise Biometrics’ software is embedded. The sensor is compact and has low power consumption.
STMicroelectronics provides its ST54 solution that comprises of an ST21NFC controller and an ST33 embedded Secure Element based on 32-bit ARM SecurCore SC300 which hosts the Gemalto Biometrics Match-On-Card. It also provides an STM32 ARM Cortex-M based low-power microcontroller managing the application.
The introduction of this biometric system eliminates the need for a username and passwords while accessing applications in the work place starting from emails to more complicated functionalities like banking and government ID programs. The solution will enable users to implement secure authentication solutions based on FIDO2 Alliance’s specifications.
