The Next Generations of Smart Cards - Fingerprint Validation
A leading fingerprint technology company and a developer of biometric cards have joined forces to bring the world what they hope will be the next generation of smart cards.
The new generation will be self-authenticating, replacing current password/personal identification number verification. It will be the size of a credit card, will operate with existing smart card readers, and will be offered at a cost as low as $20 per card.
Fingerprint Cards AB, Goteborg, Sweden and Biometric Associates, Inc., have combined their technologies and offered the card to the world.
