Synaptics VFS7500S fingerprint sensors certified through Banking Card Test Center


Synaptics Incorporated announced that its Natural ID biometric fingerprint authentication solution, the VFS7500S, has become the industry’s first fingerprint sensor fully certified through the Banking Card Test Center (BCTC).

Assigned by China UnionPay (CUP) and other key banks, the BCTC is an independent third-party test service provider that performs and manages fingerprint sensor certification testing.

The Synaptics VFS7500S Natural ID fingerprint sensor family features SentryPoint Security Suite technology, which provides a wide range of secure authentication features including Quantum Matcher for fingerprint template authentication, and PurePrint anti-spoof technology.

Using artificial intelligence technology, PurePrint analyzes fingerprint images to accurately differentiate between fake and actual fingers.

The company’s SecureLink 256-bit AES with TLS 1.2 encryption is a single-chip solution that does not require an external microcontroller for handling the cryptographic functions.

Synaptics also worked together with CUP on their official biometrics guidelines charter, which define the test service provider’s secure and trusted technical framework used for identity authentication on intelligent devices.

As the most established biometric technology, fingerprint identification is used as an example for illustration in the CUP specification and leverages Synaptics’ leadership and authority on secure fingerprint authentication.

“With the rapid growth of fingerprint sensors on smartphones and PCs, and the rise in mobile financial transactions, fingerprint sensor certification through organizations including BCTC and FIDO are a critical path forward in consumer and banker confidence of secure payments and user identity,” said Anthony Gioeli, vice president of marketing for Synaptics’ biometrics product division.

Earlier this month, Synaptics announced that its Natural ID fingerprint sensors are featured on new retail USB dongles manufactured by Kensington and PQI.
