MoriX's fingerprint authentication technology
MoriX sensor is a fingerprint authentication device with its features of "thinness," "low power consumption," and "completely independent authentication.
MoriX has released the "MoriX Card," an IC card equipped with MoriX sensors, which is expected to be used in a variety of applications.
■Uses of MoriX Card
1) Access control → As an employee ID card for PC and tablet login and room access control
2) Payment → As a credit or bank card, etc.
3) Official identification → As a passport or My Number Card
4) Membership card → As an annual passport, membership card, etc.
5) Crypto asset management → As a management tool for remittance and storage of crypto assets
By placing the finger on the fingerprint sensor on the IC card, the identity of the user is strictly confirmed, while the fingerprint information cannot be tampered with after it is registered. Since fingerprint data is encrypted and recorded in the card, there is no exchange of fingerprint information on the server. Existing IC card readers can also be used by updating the software for authentication, making it possible to introduce a highly secure authentication system while reducing investment costs.
In addition to financial cards such as credit cards, fingerprint authentication solutions are available for a wide range of purposes such as access control to offices and facilities, personal authentication for PCs and other digital devices, membership cards and IC tickets for music and entertainment events. The technology has already been certified by a major U.S. credit card company for its next-generation credit cards with fingerprint authentication, and the company has begun selling its products in Japan since 2021. MoriX aims to sell several million cards, including payment cards, in Japan and overseas by the end of 2021.
