GlobalPlatform, the specification body for smart card infrastructure, has published a white paper to explain how its existing technology can add value to biometric match-on-card solutions from research and development cost-savings and improved time to market, to compliance with industry security requirements.
“The GlobalPlatform Value Proposition for Biometric Match-on-Card Verification,” targets government officials, project managers and consultants advising on the implementation of biometric match-on-card programs, alongside smart card technical audiences. It discusses how current GlobalPlatform specifications deliver the required security and privacy to enable the deployment of a secure, interoperable and flexible biometric match-on-card solution.
GlobalPlatform on-card access control technology is also discussed within the white paper. This function can facilitate the delivery of multiple applications on one card, with each application able to securely utilize the match-on-card biometric in a flexible way without having to become biometric aware.
