Tuesday 23 November 2004 10:43 CET | News

Oberthur Card Systems together with Comex Electronics AB have launched the new Comex Biosec reader incorporating an Oberthur Card Systems smart card, the ideal solution for an environment where access control is critical.

Three identity controls are performed before granting access to the user: card, PIN and fingerprint biometric. The highest level of security is provided by the card, the applet and the reader which have all three received Common Criteria EAL4+ certification – all processing and data manipulation takes place between the card and card reader. The Biosec reader has been developed in co-operation with the Swedish Defence Material Administration and will provide strong identification for military and government establishments. With JavaCard at the centre of the application, issuers can incorporate their own applications on the card, thus tailoring the solution to meet their own specific requirements. The open system allows easy customisation of the card.
