The basic requirements of governments of various countries for fingerprint sensors must meet the PIV certification standard of the US FBI, which has a minimum size limit. At present, companies that develop fingerprint smart cards use small-area fingerprint sensors, so they can only be used in general businesses such as banks, and cannot enter the government system.
When a fingerprint sensor that fits the size is placed on a smart card, the area is often too large. Once the card is bent, the sensor will be peeled off and damaged. The peeled sensor is as sharp as a blade, and it is easy to cut your fingers. Therefore, the sensor on the wafer cannot be used. It is necessary to develop a flexible plastic sensor to meet the security requirements.
Bending will also cause the hard coating on the protective sensor to break and fail. However, if the flexible plastic fingerprint sensor is not protected by a hard coating, the circuit on the sensor is easily scratched and damaged, resulting in delays in product launch.
After years of hard work, SuperC-Touch has successfully overcome this big problem and applied it to the fingerprint smart card of the digital ID card specification. The partners have completed the product development of the fingerprint smart card. At present, it is actively deploying the use of digital ID cards in Japan, Europe, the United States, Malaysia, India, Africa, and other countries. Once successful, it will be a blue ocean business opportunity that is more profitable than fingerprint modules in the mobile phone market.
Malaysia has a population of 33.57 million and nearly 7 million migrant workers. In 2001, it began to issue the "Malaysia Card" MyKad digital identity card, which uses a smart card. The information stored in the card includes the cardholder's name, home address, belief, and fingerprints.
Malaysia uses a smart card as a digital ID card, and integrates multiple functions into the smart card. MyKad can not only be used as an Easy Card to store value but also store passport information in the MyKad when traveling in the country. Malaysia’s “MyDigital” national plan aims to ensure that 100% of civil servants have digital service capabilities, 80% of administrative affairs adopt end-to-end online services, ministries and agencies provide cashless payment, 100% of households have Internet access, all students can study online, and 870,000 micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) adopt e-commerce. These need to be based on existing smart card ID cards.
Since biometric data such as fingerprint features are already stored in the digital ID card, it is an inevitable trend to import the fingerprint module into the smart card. The more powerful the digital ID card, the higher the risk of loss and the more complicated the reissuing procedure, all of which will become important obstacles to digital development. The solution is to add fingerprint authentication. Before using it, you can verify whether you are the person before you can continue to use other functions. Even if it is lost, it will not be used by others, so the reissuance process can become very simple.
For countries that have doubts about personal privacy, such as Taiwan, the advantage of fingerprint smart cards is that all personal information is only stored in the secure area of the fingerprint smart card chip, and will not be displayed on external printing. Only after the user presses the fingerprint to confirm the authorization, the required personal information will be displayed on the authorization basis. Therefore, personal data protection can be airtight and watertight, and users can enjoy the convenience and benefits of digitalization.
The use of fingerprint smart cards combined with mobile phones will be a future trend, especially where real-name registration is required. For example, ID card + passport, credit card, financial card, etc. are combined in the digital ID card of the fingerprint smart card. After buying an air ticket, you can enter the mobile app.
In addition, the same is true for various government services, which can be handled at home without going to the scene to do the real-name registration, such as inheritance, gift, change of household registration, etc. Bank account opening, loan, and other business can also be done by opening the app and swiping the fingerprint smart card without having to wait in line at the bank.
