Many thanks to the great folks at VASCO, who have sponsored my writing for the last week.
Biometrics - specifically the use of fingerprints, iris scans and facial recognition as a means of authentication - has increasingly become an accepted part of daily life.
It’s easy, convenient, and yes, it is by all means, secure.
Banks in particular have gravitated to biometric technology such as Touch ID because it provides them with a device-based technology they may leverage to secure the mobile banking platform, and, in turn reduce their costs in deploying and supporting such services. At the same time, however, banks face the challenge of integrating this biometric technology within their security architecture while avoiding unforeseen security risks.
VASCO’s free white paper, “Biometrics in Banking”, describes how the Touch ID has been adopted as a banking authentication tool, its benefits, and the risks of deploying it incorrectly.
If you want to integrate Touch ID into your mobile banking app the right way, and learn experts’ recommendations for how financial institutions can reap the security benefits of Touch ID, then you have to read this paper.
