Fujitsu takes fingerprints for mobile ID

13 March 2002  |  3074 views  |  0 Fujitsu takes fingerprints for mobile ID

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe has launched a new fingerprint identification system for mobile devices that combines sweep sensor technology with advanced algorithms.

Fujitsu’s new MBF300 authentication system verifies the identity of users of PCs, mobile phones and other wireless devices from their fingerprints. A sweep sensor captures fingerprint features associated with high-resolution, 500-dpi fingerprint data. The template is then compared to a database of other templates, providing virtually instant identification, with very low false acceptance and false rejection rates, says the company.

Takeshi Fuse, director of advanced solutions marketing, Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe, says fingerprint identification systems are rapidly replacing identification technology that relies on passwords and personal ID numbers (PINs), which are often lost, forgotten or stolen.

He adds: “The biometric signature technology built into these new fingerprint-based verification systems provides a new form of highly reliable, secure user authentication for unlocking and enabling secure communication over mobile devices."
