Interview With Kim Kristian Humborstad, CEO, Zwipe AS

ZwipeNL
What differentiates Zwipe’s two-factor authentication technology is it is implemented entirely on a card platform. The fingerprint scanner is visible on the card surface and when you touch the scanner you activate an algorithm in the card, which will perform a match query with a template also stored on the card. Not only is the biometric verification process executed on the card, but the users biometric information is stored only on the card. This eliminates the need to maintain an external database, which itself can be costly and vulnerable to hackers.
