RSA gets into fingerprints

Friday, 20 June 2003, 1:35 AM EST

RSA Security is to add biometric recognition technology to its popular line of two-factor authentication products. This will give customers the opportunity to add another layer of authentication to its identity management system.

RSA Security will integrate Precise Biometrics' Precise BioMatch fingerprint authentication technology with RSA SecurID Passage smart card software and the RSA SecurID USB Token to enable strong protection and validation of a user's identity based on a biometric.

RSA plans to provide an integrated biometric/smart card package for customers who want either strong two or three-factor authentication. This technology could be used in applications such as protect access to corporate apps, to unlock credentials stored on a smart card, or to digitally sign electronic forms or documents.

Organisations needing to balance ease of use with another level of security can select from either two or three-factor authentication with the use of a smart card or USB token (something you have) the biometric (something you are) and a PIN (something you know).
