Biometrics company Fingerprint Cards AB (Fingerprints) has expanded its Biometric Software Platform for access control solutions.

Fingerprints has tailored it payments software to support access control device makers, card manufacturers and system integrators by adding biometric authentication.

Michel Roig, SVP Payments & Access at Fingerprints, said: “Biometrics is the perfect way to add convenience and security to access control solutions, as you assure that it is the right person that has the right access.

“This solution is built upon the success and R&D of our mobile and payments software platforms, which verify billions of touches per day, and enables access control stakeholders to layer additional security onto existing or new infrastructure.”

Access control scenarios

The platform combines with Fingerprints’ biometric sensors to optimise performance for two access control scenarios: one-to-few and one-to-one authentication.

For one-to-few, biometric hardware and software are integrated into the access control infrastructure of the building. A small set of biometric credentials can be enrolled onto the access control solution enabling employees to gain access.

Furthermore, for one-to-one, the biometric sensor and software are integrated into a plastic card or wearable. After this, the device is issued to employees or residents. Users place their thumb or finger over the sensor when they tap the card to perform a multi-factor authentication.

Roig added: “Both scenarios remove the risk of lost and stolen access cards. They also offer significantly higher security than PINs and keys. All while maintaining user convenience and privacy, which are fundamental.”

To avoid fraud, during enrollment users’ biometric credentials are converted into a biometric template and then encrypted on the device. So, if stolen, fraudsters will be unable to access the user’s biometric information.
