TIEMPO SECURE, id3 partner on ready-to-use biometric-enabled chips for smartcard vendors
TIEMPO SECURE and id3 Technologies have set up a partnership allowing TIEMPO SECURE to deliver its TESIC-SC chips with already installed biometric match-on-card routines for smartcard application developers.
Id3 biometric on-card comparison technology provides security and privacy for the end-user by removing the need for databases. The confidentiality of the biometric data is guaranteed by integrating both the storage and matching subsystems into the secure integrated circuit chip that can contain data corresponding to ten fingers and one face.
According to a company statement, these routines work in contact and contactless mode alike, with a high level of performance guaranteeing transactions are performed within the allocated time-frame specified by payment schemes and required by card and application issuers.
TIEMPO SECURE TESIC-SC chips are certified Common Criteria CC-EAL 5+ and EMVCo. Id3 Technologies Match on Card Finger 5.2 routines have been evaluated by the NIST and have demonstrated their compliance with MINEX III specifications. Typical time for a fingerprint recognition is around 100 ms. Typical time for a facial recognition is around 100 ms.
Serge Maginot, CEO of TIEMPO SECURE explains: “By adding id3 Technologies’ biometric match-on-card routines, we make TESIC-SC an always richer option for smart card manufacturers to propose feature-rich cards delivering the best-in-class performance thanks to their original design and technology.”
Id3 Technologies is exhibiting this week at Trustech.
