STMicroelectronics: Gemalto, Fingerprint Cards, Precise Biometrics, and ST to demonstrate world's first end-to-end security architecture for fingerprint authen

Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Spain - February 22, 2016
- Gemalto, Fingerprint Cards, Precise Biometrics, and STMicroelectronics
introduce the first end-to-end security architecture for biometric
fingerprint authentication at Mobile World Congress 2016, offering OEMs[1]the
opportunity to easily deploy this consumer-friendly feature in the latest
generation of wearable and consumer electronics devices. This new
proof-of-concept replaces conventional username/password authentication for
applications such as payment, eTicketing, digital access and 2-factor strong
authentication with swift and secure fingerprint recognition.

The joint effort will demonstrate this ground-breaking solution on a
smartwatch that embeds a fingerprint sensor from Fingerprint Cards,
fingerprint software from Precise Biometrics, and Secure NFC solution and
low-power microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics.

Gemalto provides theUpTeq eSE
on which the user's credentials are stored, and the Match-On-Card application
that validates the fingerprint placed on the sensor corresponds to the
biometric data of the user. Gemalto also supplies a rich array of secure
applications, and theAllynis Trusted Services Hub
(TSH) responsible for managing the solution over the entire product lifecycle.

Fingerprint Cards delivers state-of-the-art touch fingerprint sensors with
extreme low power consumption and compact form factor.

Precise Biometrics provides fingerprint software based on Precise BioMatch
Embedded, an industry leading algorithm solution that offers convenient and
secure fingerprint recognition for products with small fingerprint sensors on
limited platforms, such as smart cards, wearables, cars, locks and personal
identification tokens.

STMicroelectronics provides its ST54 system-in-package solution, composed of
an ST21NFC near-field communication (NFC) controller and an ST33 embedded
Secure Element based on 32-bit ARM® SecurCore® SC300, hosting the Gemalto
Biometrics Match-On-Card. ST also provides an STM32 ARM Cortex®-M based
low-power microcontroller managing the application.

For end users, the new architecture spells an end to the complexity of having
to remember numerous username and password combinations to access essential
applications such as payment, secure email and government ID programs. This
solution will offer new opportunities to the consumer electronics market to
implement secure authentication solutions based on FIDO[2]Alliance's
specification, and give consumer electronics manufacturers the option to
differentiate from competition. By easing the user journey without
compromising security, biometric fingerprint authentication represents a real
game-changer for the world of secure mobile connectivity, payment, eCitizen
services and more.
