Biometrics is a field that deals with the science of human identity. Specifically, it refers to biological characteristics such as fingerprints, noses, eyes, voices, and faces to verify a person’s identity. It has become ubiquitous in our digital lives. With the rapid adoption of biometric authentication services, more and more users are turning to biometric solutions as an additional layer of security. However, some challenges come with implementing biometric solutions. For example, the challenge of matching biometric templates, the availability of additional user data, and the need for a secure and scalable biometric data storage solution. These challenges have spurred the development in verticals and sub-domains, such as for authentication, personalization, and verification. As a result, a new generation of solutions has emerged and continues to evolve.
Why choose IDEMIA Fingerprint Sensor?
They are the best in their class. They have been well documented in numerous independent studies and are the standard for security devices. The sensors have also been approved by the ISO/IEC as a standard to be used on systems that can store biometric data. The sensors offer more than just a single fingerprint for verification. They provide users with a choice of up to four different finger types and can be used with various applications to verify identity. The family of sensors is available in multiple formats, including a compact, self-contained unit that fits on any key ring or key chain and an integrated fingerprint reader that can be used on laptops, tablets, and mobile phones via USB or Bluetooth connectivity.
The Advantages of Fingerprint Sensors
There are many advantages to use a fingerprint sensor instead of a password. The most obvious advantage is that the fingerprint sensor is an always-on biometric. It always works, regardless of whether the user’s smartphone or computer has an active internet connection. Fingerprints are far more secure than passwords. A fingerprint can only be used once, and if the user’s phone or computer is stolen or lost, their fingerprints will no longer work.
Biometrics are powerful tools for securing access to critical systems and data. It can be used in various applications, including authentication, personalization, and verification.
