Today it is totally mandatory to carry a debit or credit card with you so that we can make a series of purchases, and even if you are a lover of cash, sooner or later you will have to pay with a card.
The problem with credit cards is that insecurity of what will happen if they end up stealing it from you, but Samsung wants to be part of the cards of the future thanks to this new technology.
Specifically, Samsung is working on a new card integrated circuit biometric as an all-in-one security solution that offers cards a variety of additional things to make them much more secure.
In this way, customers would be offered a secure and convenient way to authenticate at the point of sale by using their fingerprint instead of the typical PIN number or signature.
So with these cards, you don’t need to enter a PIN for transactions, making purchases faster and easier.
This is how this technology works
It’s like a kind of extra layer of security, capable of reducing concerns about theft of the card or PIN, since even if you lose it, the criminal would not be able to use it, since they would not have your fingerprints.
In this way, Samsung’s proposal combines security, the authenticator and the fingerprint sensor in a single entity.
So because device encryption protects the chip, it’s more secure and easier to integrate into applications. Credit cards.
Samsung clarifies that up to three impressions can be registered and stored on the card itself and that all processing is done on the device.
However, Samsung is creating technology that is likely to be sold to companies like Visa, American Express or MasterCard.
