Gemalto has extended its support for strong authentication on the Windows 7 platform using its .NET Bio solution. The solution enables multi-factor authentication using biometrics by building on the foundation provided in the new Windows Biometric Framework (WBF) for Windows 7.
Gemalto is demonstrating its .NET Bio solution with biometrics on a Windows 7 platform in the Microsoft Partner Pavilion at RSA 2009 in through Thursday, April 23rd, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Gemalto .NET Bio is a solution that enables organizations to enhance network security and protect online identities by replacing passwords with strong authentication using Gemalto .NET smart cards and Precise Match-on-Card fingerprint biometric technology. By leveraging the smart card and biometric support built into Windows 7, Gemalto .NET Bio is easier to deploy and manage than solutions that require installation of middleware.
In Windows 7, Microsoft is introducing the Windows Biometric Framework to provide native support for fingerprint biometric devices through a new set of software components.
