The global leader in augmented identity, Idemia, was selected by Movistar in Chile to be part of an unseen service in South America, the creation of a digital identity mobile KYC (Know Your Customer) and solutions for paperless contracts on mobile stores services.

 The announcement took place on April 2019.

The Telefónica’s subsidiary in Chile, Movistar, made a great move towards Idemia, when awarding the company a contract to provide an end-to-end KYC service. The solution has the purpose to assist in-store sales people while signing new customers, both facial and digital signature will be involved. Customers in Chile will have the possibility to sign new contract electronically:

The service is basically provided by a mobile app for tablets and smartphones in which sales people from Telefónica will match the ID document with customer photos stored in a biometric database. This procedure generates though a digital identity for the customer.

The relation between the two companies started years ago, when Idemia had provided Telefónica with SIMs, over-the-air and M2M eSIM Global Subscription management platform. This new contract endorses the ongoing trust of Telefónica in Idemia.

In a long term bases, digital identity will bring a safe and secure world where shoppers will be able to do self enrollment at home in order to carry out their daily taks.

IDEMIA teams with Infineone and Pmdtechnologies to get ahead on 3D facial recognition.

The partnership seeks to develop a refined solution for systems integrators and OEMs.

The trio is specifically working on a 3D image sensor on Time-of-Flight technology. The latter analyzes how emitted light reflects off of objects in the real world. The technology will be used to enhance 3D facial recognition in LG’s newest smartphone, to be shown at MMW – Mobile World Congress, this year:

Last September IDEMIA presented its new software designed for infrared cameras, the logic here is to unify the latest hardware from Infineon and Pmdtechnologie with the cutting edge 3D Face biometric software from IDEMIA. The result of this would be a powerful solution aimed at smartphone, tablet, and PC applications as well in different areas such as smart cars.

Dear Partners,

Following its process of continuous improvement, IDEMIA has enhanced the MorphoTablet 2 firmware to optimize the security of the device while restraining the risk of hacking. This new firmware offers the following security features:
• Hardware Secure Boot that preserves the device against third party Android builds installation,
• Unauthorized modification of system code,
• Physical attack surfaces mitigation by inactivating Android debug bridge (ADB) by default,
• Enhanced device encryption that protects the device against intrusion,
• SAM card reader with Open Mobile API,
• Dedicated area for customization, adding application as “pre-installed” and protecting the customization from factory reset.

In order to provide to all our customers the best product in terms of security, IDEMIA has decided to propose this new improvement to all further MorphoTablet 2 deliveries. As a consequence:

1) The MorphoTablet 2 fingerprint/face biometric tablet (Part Number 293689952 / 293686071) is discontinued and replaced by MorphoTablet 2s (MorphoTablet 2s becomes the main product reference).

2) The new secure firmware release version TA-x is now loaded in factory into:
MorphoTablet 2s fingerprint/face secure biometric tablets (Part Number 293705285 / 293705305),
MorphoTablet 2i fingerprint/face/iris biometric tablets (Part Number 293724199 / 293724222).

Our support team is available to help ensure a seamless integration of custom apps with this new firmware, using our Customer Support Package dedicated tools.
