Biometric fingerprint scanners planned for credit card authentication

Tech Tips by Burleson Consulting

Embedded fingerprint readers coming for credit cards and cell phones

Today, many Oracle systems rely on fingerprint biometrics for user authentication and the technology continues to improve.  See Oracle Biometrics Security for details on Oracle databases with fingerprint authentication.

Seiko Epsom has developed a paper thin fingerprint reader that has great promise for self-authentication of credit cards and other small devices that require security and authentication, due by 2010.

"The fingerprint sensor?s ultra-thin profile means it can easily be incorporated into a variety of commonly used items. Among the applications that Seiko Epson is targeting are self-authenticating credit cards, in which a tiny on-card processor is used to compare the captured fingerprint data with the user?s fingerprint data stored in an embedded memory.

A non-matching fingerprint would render the card unusable, preventing abuse in the case of loss or theft."

This article also notes that biometric fingerprint readers are being introduced for cell phones to prevent unauthorized calls: "Scan your digits to lock and unlock the phone. Sweet, eh?"

If you like Oracle tuning, you may enjoy my new book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference", over 900 pages of BC's favorite tuning tips & scripts. 

You can buy it direct from the publisher for 30%-off and get instant access to the code depot of Oracle tuning scripts.
