Mastercard approves Fime for biometric certification.

August 13, 2018

Mastercard approves Fime for biometric certification.

Fime has been approved by Mastercard to deliver biometric authentication certification services in line with its new guidelines for mobile device sensors. The certification program enables mobile, wearable and sensor manufacturers to ensure the performance and accuracy of mobile fingerprint sensors. This enables financial service providers to easily evaluate the hardware and software integrated into devices and have confidence in the quality of the products that are integrating with their payment solutions.

Our vision for the future of strong customer authentication (SCA) centers around a seamless, trusted user experience that’s powered by biometrics. This program is a reflection of that and provides our partners with a clear benchmark to demonstrate the quality and reliability of their products and solutions.

Certification partners like Fime are fundamental to the realization of our vision as they can assist each stakeholder in the value chain to move the industry forward in a sustainable, secure and interoperable way.

As the first payment scheme to offer additional certification for biometrics, alongside its functional testing for M/Chip Advance cards embedded with biometric sensors, Mastercard’s program provides dedicated hardware performance testing to scrutinizing the quality of solutions’ matching engines. Vendors and service providers can make use of Fime’s consulting, training and certification services to launch secure, reliable mobile payment solutions.

Biometrics have taken the payments world by storm in recent years, delivering consumers greater convenience and security. But in a post-PSD2 and GDPR world, players across mobile and payments are ramping up the pressure on device manufacturers, vendors and solution providers to justify the performance, compliance and quality of their authentication solutions. We’re proud to be championing this certification program as we continue to support the ever-expanding role of biometrics in payments.
