#Biometrics: First European trial of Mastercard’s biometric card completed

UniCredit Bulbank of Bulgaria recently completed the first European trial of Mastercard’s biometric card, which combines chip technology with fingerprint technology to verify cardholders’ identity for in-store purchases.
The biometric card works similar to any other chip card whereby the cardholder inserts the card into a retailer’s terminal while placing their finger on the embedded sensor. The fingerprint is verified against the template and, if the biometrics match, the cardholder is successfully authenticated and the transaction can then be approved. www.biometricupdate.com
