Smart card reader with fingerprint recognition

Assa Abloy Identification Technologies introduced a new OMNIKEY smart card reader that combines contact smart card technology with fingerprint recognition. The contact based desktop device is especially designed for logical access control systems in high security environments. Using  modern stripe sensor technology, the OMNIKEY CardMan 7121 allows threefold authentication via card, pin and fingerprint. It is compatible to a broad range of fingerprint recognition and access control systems and can easily be integrated into existing and new biometric access security solutions. Companies using fingerprint recognition on laptops for example can now ensure the same level of security at their desktop computers.
 
Based on the well-known OMNIKEY CardMan 3121, the CardMan 7121 enables various constellations and configurations of fingerprint and smart card applications. It works with nearly all contact smart cards and related applications. The combination of smart card and biometric authentication increases the security of log-on applications with multifactor authentication or pre-boot authentication.
 
For fingerprint recognition, the OMNIKEY CardMan 7121 uses a modern stripe sensor supplied by AuthenTec. It scans fingerprints with the currently highest resolution of 500ppi and ensures best possible recognition rates. The durability of the sensor allows more than 10 million rubs.
 
The device supports plug&play installation and connects to a PC via USB. It complies with all relevant industry standards including ISO 7816, Microsoft WHQL, USB 2.0, CCID, PC/SC and HBCI (Home Banking Computer Interface).
