Fujitsu to offer FIDO-compliant online biometric authentication service

December 28, 2016 - 

Fujitsu will begin offering a new FIDO-compliant online biometric authentication service, which will initially roll out in Japan in early April 2017.

Online Biometric Authentication Service provides online services with all the servers and software needed to implement FIDO-compliant services that support the development of cloud environments.

The service also includes software development kits and development support for integrating FIDO into client-side applications.

Using this service, customers can develop secure online personal authentication systems that do not require passwords for various day-to-day situations, including online banking and shopping, ticket arrangements, and car sharing.

Since the service also functions to use FIDO with facial recognition obtained through smartphones and other biometrics, the number of supported devices on the client side can be significantly expanded.

This service is one of the IoT solutions that are being developed for FUJITSU digital business platform MetaArc, which enables customers to make connections between people, things and infrastructure across company and industry boundaries.

Previously reported, Delta ID announced its ActiveIRIS 3.0 technology is powering the iris scanner of Fujitsu’s latest smartphone, the arrows NX F-01J launched by NTT DOCOMO, INC in Japan.
