PQI My Lockey features Synaptics fingerprint sensor

June 7, 2017 - 

Synaptics Natural ID fingerprint sensors with integrated SentryPoint security software are featured in the newest PQI My Lockey USB dongles.

Synaptics’ SentryPoint includes SecureLink which combines support for TLS protocol with ECC authentication and AES encryption, protecting data end-to-end from the fingerprint sensor to the host. Quantum Matcher technology is used for fingerprint template matching and authentication and Synaptics’ PurePrint anti-spoofing technology helps distinguish between fake and live fingers.

The PQI My Lockey offers secure fingerprint authentication to Windows 10 notebook PCs that lack integrated biometric sensors.

Synaptics Natural ID solutions are FIDO Certified (Fast IDentity Online), providing broad compliance with an industry-wide ecosystem of products.

Previously reported, Synaptics executive Godfrey Cheng recently discussed the importance of encrypted fingerprint sensors in a recent company blog post.
