Card And Biometric

by msecadm4921

HID Corporation, an ASSA ABLOY Group company, and BIO-key International, a finger-based biometric identification firm, have solutions combining HID card and BIO-key biometric technologies.

The primary architecture of the HID/BIO-key solution is to store a unique identifier on the card, and use a backend server to perform the final, secure authentication. This enables the use of legacy cards and systems, such as the HID ProxCard II (and all other HID proximity cards and tokens). It also allows for new technologies, such as iCLASS, HID?s 13.56 MHz read/write contactless smart cards and readers, when onboard memory is required. By placing the biometric templates on a centralized server, all authentications, permissions for authorisation, and security logging and monitoring can be easily handled. If a card is lost or stolen, a new card can be generated without doing a new biometric enrollment. Additionally, the BIO-key biometric can assure that the same user is not in the database more than one time. These features help to stop identity theft and fraud while providing for cost reductions and security improvements. When there is no access to a server, BIO-key can also support onboard card storage of biometric templates.

Mira LaCous, BIO-key?s VP of Technology and Development says: ?These new architectures afford the highest level of security possible. By continuing to create a trusted interface between each aspect of the authentication system, BIO-key can truly assure the identity of the user authenticating? providing the solution to the last key hole in security? knowing WHO the user is,” states HID?s ability to offer both proximity and iCLASS technology is a perfect match for BIO-key, as we can take advantage of the full suite of products, maximizing the benefit to the customer. We can get them the most cost effective and secure solutions possible by using the most appropriate card technologies, and scaling the backend to the right level.? Visit www.hidcorp.com
