Secure alternative to passwords

Issue 1 2021 Cyber Security

Fingerprint biometrics offer a secure alternative to regular passwords. They cannot be lost/forgotten and cannot be shared. Suprema’s BioMini Slim 3 is FBI PIV (Personal Identity Verification) and Mobile ID FAP30 certified. It also features live finger detection (LFD) technology, adding to the list of reasons why it is suitable for applications that require stringent security, such as those that link to the Department of Home Affairs’ national identification system as well as the criminal clearance database.

BioMini Slim 3 features a 15 mm ultra-slim FAP30 optical sensor with a wide platen for easier fingerprint capturing, multi-dynamic range (MDR) technology for operation even under direct sunlight, and an IP65-rated dust- and water-proof structure which ensures robust operation for outdoor and mobile environments.

So instead of using weak passwords, consider integrating biometrics into your solution with Suprema’s easy-to-use SDK. It is compatible with Android, MS Windows and Linux.

neaMetrics provides local SA software engineering support which gives its clients the ability to fast-track development and to shorten the time to market.
