Toshiba Solutions announced on November 8 that it developed the on-line biometrics solution using a smart phone.It realizes combining wrist intravenous authentication technology with the camera of the smart phone which a universal robot has, and the network technology of Toshiba Solutions.Without using a dedicated device, biometrics becomes possible always, and it is said safely that various services, such as Internet banking, can be attested through the Internet.
While the intravenous attestation used by ATM of a bank, etc. uses infrared rays, the wrist intravenous detection by available light is possible for a universal robot’s intravenous authentication software.It has an original detection algorithm and can use also with the camera of a smart phone.
On the other hand, Toshiba Solutions has the technology for performing safe biometrics on open networks, such as the Internet.The technology became the International Standard as “the attestation context ACBio for biometrics” 2009.It is a data structure standard which shows that biometrics was performed correctly, and can cancel the privacy at the time of carrying out biometrics on a network, and the subject of security.
This solution combined such technology and realized safe on-line biometrics by a smart phone.It is supposed that it is utilizable for various kinds of attestation, such as settlement-of-accounts attestation of Internet banking, ATM, etc., and government system ID attestation of national ID etc. Via IT Media.
