Wednesday 27 November 2013 10:26 CET | News

Fingerprint Cards (FPC), a biometric components provider, and security services provider Nok Nok Labs have teamed up to deliver an infrastructure solution for online authentication using fingerprint sensors on smartphones and tablets.

Under the agreement, they offer mobile and tablet OEMs the ability to integrate FPCs swipe and touch-based fingerprint sensors that are also enabled for online authentication.

The two companies have initially implemented the joint solution using the FPC1080 fingerprint sensor, Nok Nok Labs client and server technology, and commercially available Android smartphones using the FPC1080 fingerprint sensor in order to demonstrate the support to the emerging FIDO-based ecosystem. As members of the FIDO Alliance, FPC and Nok Nok Labs are helping to define the FIDO Alliances standards for universal authentication and are committed to supporting market adoption of the FIDO standard.

Fingerprint Cards develops, produces and markets biometric components that through the analysis and matching of an individuals unique fingerprint verify the persons identity. The technology consists of biometric sensors, processors, algorithms and modules that can be used separately or in combination with each other.

Nok Nok Labs aims to enable trust across the web using authentication methods that are natural to end-users and provide proof of identity.
