The AET63 BioTRUSTKey combines the highly successful silicon fingerprint sensor with a smart card reader to achieve ultra-secure authentication. It is fully integrated fingerprint-based biometric subsystem, combining fingerprint sensing and algorithm processing in a single, compact device. All biometric algorithm processing is carried out in a custom chip integrated at the back of the silicon fingerprint sensor.
With BioTRUSTKey, you have all the hardware and software you need to add biometric security to your custom applications. For PC applications, the BioTRUSTKey provides the highest level of security. That\’s because both the template extraction and matching algorithms run within the device itself – not in the PC.
Since fingerprints cannot be lost, duplicated, stolen or forgotten, the product range is widely regarded as providing a more reliable and convenient solution than traditional security devices. With the AET63 BioTRUSTKey, security is improved further by storing the fingerprint templates inside a smart card instead of the PC. This not only provides a more secure environment but it also enhances portability and eliminates privacy concerns. What is more, it gives users the flexibility of being able to carry their fingerprint template with them, safe in the knowledge that no-one else can use their smart card should it become lost or stolen.
Our biometric products leverage ACS technology and experience in implementing readers in smart card-based authentication programs. By partnering with leading biometric sensor and algorithm supplier, we are providing a high level of security and convenience for applications in the government, corporate, financial and healthcare sectors.
Using a simple Application Programming Interface, it is extremely easy for designers to integrate the fingerprint authentication features into their applications. The developer can develop the interface very quickly without an in-depth knowledge of biometrics.
