Samsung has created a fingerprint scanner for payment cards

Samsung has developed a solution that will allow you to integrate a fingerprint scanner into a bank card or pass. The chip, called the S3B512C, combines a biometric sensor, secure data storage, and a processor that analyzes fingerprints.

The introduction of such a module into cards and passes will make it possible to refuse PIN codes, as well as provide a reliable level of protection in case of loss or theft of a payment card. Without verifying the identity of the owner, it simply will not work.

Samsung notes that their new development has EMVCo and Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (CC EAL) 6+ safety certificates. The scanner is also protected from hacking attempts using fake fingerprints.
