December 15, 2015 - 

Morpho (Safran) announced that it is participating in the Norwegian SWAN Project, to fight against identity theft and hacking of personal data on smartphones.

The RCN (Research Council of Norway) recently launched the SWAN (Secure Access Control over Wide Area Network) Research & Development Project. The SWAN project will research, develop and deploy innovative technologies to establish a sustainable and cost-effective access control platform using strong authentication and biometrics and by improving data transmission processes.

Partners in the project include Gjovik University as the project coordinator, Oslo University, ZWIPE, IDIAP, the Association of German Banks and Morpho.

Just last week, Morpho CEO Anne Bouverot shared her insights on the future of the digital identity market and said that in order to meet the demand for faster and simpler use of mobile, such as password-less mobile payments, the market must develop safe and reliable technologies for user identification. A couple of days later, the company announced it had finalized its acquisition of AirTag, a French startup focused on innovative mobile payment solutions.
