Fujitsu releases updated biometric authentication access security system

Fujitsu releases updated biometric authentication access security system

Fujitsu has released “AuthConductor V2,” a new biometric security system that leverages technology such as palm vein authentication, facial and fingerprint recognition, and IC card authentication for PC logons to boost security and improve customer experience, the company announced.

Fujitsu made “AuthConductor Server” software first available in April 2017 when users had the option to add palm vein authentication to their systems. However, Fujitsu integrated its PC logon authentication system into the “AuthConductor Server” to meet customer requirements and enhanced it with new features to release “AuthConductor V2.”

Users will be able to access platforms and applications by authenticating themselves through palm vein data, which is centralized on a server. It can be used for authentication including for PC logon, physical access management, and printing authentication. The palm vein authentication feature can speed up verification by 50 percent, Fujitsu says, making it an opportune solution for cashless payments and other large-scale projects.

The facial authentication feature for PC logon uses Fujitsu’s proprietary technology. The fingerprint authentication and IC card authentication features support identification cards used with the Japanese social security system.

Product sales started in Japan on November 18, while global release is planned for within fiscal 2020. Over the next three years, the company expects to make 15 billion yen (roughly US$137 million) in sales.

Fujitsu has recently developed a technology for processing encrypted biometric data without first decrypting it, which the company says has the same accuracy and processing speed as conventional biometric authentication systems.
