Biometrics by Fingerprints powers Thales’s new SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Biometric Smart Card
Fingerprint Cards AB (Fingerprints™) announces today that its second generation T-Shape® (T2) sensor module is integrated in a new FIDO2 card for logical access called SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Bio Smart Card, offered by Cloud Protection & Licensing Solution at Thales, a key global player in the cyber security industry. The FIDO2 smart card enables safe and convenient authentication for everyday use.
The innovative SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Bio Smart Card allows end users to authenticate without passwords and PINs, with just a fingerprint instead. The result is a FIDO2 card which combines security, flexibility and user-friendliness, facilitating highly secure access to a multitude of devices and data. The biometrics of the user never leaves the smart card, ensuring security to the consumer, thereby adhering to the general data protection regulation (GDPR).
“Thanks to the wide partnership we have with Thales, we continue to innovate and are constantly strengthening our collaboration, now bringing a FIDO2 card to market, integrating biometrics by Fingerprints. The FIDO2 Smart Card can be used for a wide range of different logical access applications and is an excellent defence against phishing attacks for end-users”, says Roger Carrico, VP, Head of Sales and Business Development, Payment & Access at Fingerprints.
