Article 15 : Certification VISA et MASTERCARD pour les cartes de paiement biométriques F.CODE

Mastercard and Visa said they have entered into new agreements to develop biometric authentication. New partnerships could allow them to take advantage of this new trend.

IDEMIA’s F-CODE biometric cards

This technology is transforming the way people identify people. Biometrics enhance the security of your data and facilitate the use of your credit card by analysing your fingerprint.

As security is an issue in purchasing, Idemia designs F-CODE biometric payment cards. You carry out your transactions using the fingerprint sensor integrated into the card. Your fingerprint is then validated by an algorithm that validates the match of the fingerprint to that of the owner.

New agreements with Visa and Mastercard

In this context, this technology has recently entered into a partnership with Visa and Mastercard. The biometric device fits perfectly into these cards and allows you to pay easily and securely.

To do this, a chip is integrated into the card and enables the verification procedure.

This initiative will help develop biometric payment services around the world.

News that appeal to consumers

A study shows that consumers are ready to welcome biometric payment: 76% are interested in contactless for large payments and 81% are ready to use their fingerprint.

Indeed, it speeds up payment, lifts the limit of 30 euros for contactless payment, offers ease of use and secures data.

To ensure user privacy, biometric data is stored into the chip and never leaves the chip. This new generation of cards is already available, regardless of your bank.

Article-10 : Encore une 1ère place pour IDEMIA !

IDEMIA’s 1:N face biometric algorithm has again taken the number one spot on the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT).

The IDEMIA’s 1:N face biometric algorithm

According to an announcement by Idemia National Security Solutions (NSS), a business unit of Idemia, the test results showed a correct identification accuracy of 99.5 percent at a false positive identification rate of 0.1 percent when searching a dataset of 1.6 million visa border images.

Per the announcement, IDEMIA has maintained the number one spot in the NIST FRVT ranking since March, and this time around, its facial recognition technology was tested against over 75 systems and 281 entries.

NIST said at the end of the test that Idemia’s algorithm had no “detectable biases” — a characteristic which the company says strengthens its sustained position as a verified leader in biometrics and fair facial recognition technology.

Precise and reliable performance

Idemia National Security Solutions CEO Andrew Boyd said that the NIST test results this year reflect the increasing foothold of their solution in the facial recognition technology market.

“The NIST testing and rankings thus far in 2021 continue to highlight the stronghold Idemia has as a leader in facial recognition technology. Our algorithms consistently deliver accurately and reliably, supporting our government partners and showcasing not only the innovative solutions being brought forth by IDEMIA, but our overall commitment to excellence in perfecting this critical technology,” said Boyd.

IDEMIA’s 1:N face biometric algorithm is deployed on various devices and systems, including VisionPass, the ultimate facial recognition access control device.

Recently, IDEMIA indicated that it has entered into a global partnership with Bosch Building Technologies, a world leader in the security market. This partnership will exploit the rapidly expanding biometric access control market. According to some specialists, this market, already estimated at $ 1 billion, should grow twice as fast as for other access control markets and reach $ 1.4 billion in 2024.

How to explain such a boom?

Many companies have realized the importance of security in their premises. Since identification badges can be easily falsified, duplicated or stolen, companies are increasingly deciding to use more secure technologies: this is the case with biometrics. Indeed, it uses personal, physiological and tamper-proof characteristics, and increasingly attracts companies for the security of their professional premises.

Bosch Building Technologies’ solution

Bosch Building Technologies’ software solution manages several security subsystems: access control, video surveillance, fire alarms, sound systems, intrusion systems, etc. It has been tested by more than 3000 installations, which represents 10 million detectors worldwide.

Bosch Building Technologies called on IDEMIA to integrate a biometric dimension into its BIS (intrusion system) system. The world leader has therefore opted for two types of readers: the MorphoWave Compact, the only terminal that can scan and identify 4 fingerprints in less than a second by a simple movement of the hand, and the VisionPass, whose technology is based on the facial recognition (2D, 3D and infrared cameras). Robust and powerful, MorphoWave and VisionPass are contactless and work even when wearing a sanitary mask. In addition to making the passage smoother and making the places safer, these readers are therefore perfectly suited to the health rules currently in place for the fight against Covid-19.

Biotime obtient la certification IDEMIA EXPERT

Our colleagues obtained IDEMIA EXPERT certification. This is the highest level of certification issued by IDEMIA which increases the mastery of biometrics in the team. Biotime Biometrics is the first distributor of IDEMIA to obtain it on a global scale !

It’s a pride for the whole team, which always wishes the best quality of service for its customers. Congratulations to our two experts !
