INSIDE Secure’s biometric on-card matching security


INSIDE Secure announced the availability of biometric on-card matching capabilities for its SecuRead system-in-package NFC solution, enabling manufacturers of mobile NFC devices to provide enhanced, two-factor security and greater personal privacy for a variety of mobile applications.

Based on advanced fingerprint identification software from Neurotechnology running on the SecuRead secure element, the new solution debuts on the TazCard, the NFC electronic wallet from TazTag, and was demonstrated at Mobile World Congress.

‘Privacy is ensured because once the use’s fingerprint is stored in the secure element of the SecuRead device, all subsequent fingerprint matching operations are processed there too, and the original fingerprint data is never exposed again,’ explains Bastien Latg
