Product Information

 ACS Smard card reader with fingerprint sensor brings to the market effortless user convenience.

Combining the core of ACS' ACR122U Near Field Communication (NFC) Reader and Authentec's swipe fingerprint sensor, the AET62 NFC Reader with Fingerprint Sensor makes integration of secure biometric authentication simple and exchange of information intuitive. With its ergonomic design, it makes fingerprint and contactless card authentication hassle-free.

AET62 elevates security and flexibility for contactless applications by:

  • Three-Factor-Authentication: Requiring of a user something he has (smart card), something he knows (PIN/password) and something he is (fingerprint), before enabling any transaction
  • Match-On-Device: Limiting fingerprint template extraction and matching to itself, preventing security attacks associated with PCs
  • Simple Fingerprint System : Doing away with databases, servers or network connectivity. Instead, fingerprint templates are stored and encrypted in the smart card.
  • Complete local-site authentication; Limiting required components for operation into three only (local PC/remote server applications, contactless smart cards, and the AET62). Thus, even developers without an in-depth knowledge of biometrics can integrate fingerprint authentication into smart card-based applications.
  • Security Enhancement : Provision of an optional secure access module (SAM) and support for third-party algorithms
  • Integrated fingerprint scanner and 13.56 MHz contactless (RFID/NFC) smart card reader
  • Full-speed USB interface
  • Encrypted fingerprint template stored inside smart card
