IDENTITY THEFT


AN IMMENSE PROBLEM


6

Identity theft


Increasing rapidly


Substantial cost and losses:


USD ~45 bn in US


USD ~25 bn in Europe


Are chip cards secure?

7

The Internet of Things:

Connectivity anytime and anyplace for anything


Imagine a future where physical
objects,
things
, have identities,
virtual personalities and
communicate using intelligent
interfaces.


The
Internet of Things
links the
objects and beings of the real
world with the virtual world.

ultifactor authentication:


Something you have


Something you know


Something you are



Fingerprint biometrics


Everyone has a unique
fingerprint


Reliable and secure recognition


Compact, low cost and low
power, readers

IDEX; THE ID OF YOU


The IDEX SmartFinger
®

technology
adds security
and

safeguards your
privacy


With the fingerprint sensor
on

the
card, the owner is linked uniquely
to the card just with a swipe of the
finger


Biometric cards bring fingerprint ID
to mass market adoption

BIOMETRIC PASSPORTS AND ID CARDS


1.
Fingerprint information stored on card

2.
Fingerprint transferred from card to reader

3.
Extraction and match
on reader system


Conventional biometric card systems

Requires infrastructure of readers for enrollment and verification

15

Solution enabled by IDEX’
SmartFinger

Film


1.
Fingerprint template stored on card

2.
Enrollment
takes place at card

3.
Extraction and match
takes place on card

Fingerprint information never leaves the card

Does not require infrastructure for enrollment and verification
