Biometric Payment Cards Webinar
The payment industry continues to innovate payment authentication methods that improve on traditional methods while minimizing disruption to the card manufacturing process. Payments industry stakeholders are now implementing what could become the next standard for payment technologies with cards—biometric authentication. Biometrics has always provided a way to address multifactor authentication, fulfilling the “who you are” factor requirement and working in conjunction with “what you have” (a card) and “what you know” (a PIN).
The Secure Technology Alliance Payments Council hosted a webinar to provide a primer on biometric payment cards that use fingerprints to authenticate the cardholder. New technologies that enable template matching and storage in the secure element, battery-free operation, and fast transactions are being showcased in pilots and proof-of-concept launches around the world. Webinar topics included: an overview of biometric payment card technology; the user experience and implementation considerations for biometric payment cards; examples of real-word implementations.
Webinar speakers were: Jose Correa, NXP Semiconductors; Gerry Glindro, IDEMIA; Oliver Manahan, Infineon Technologies; Tom Rapkoch, Visa; Randy Vanderhoof, Secure Technology Alliance.
