CardLab and eSignus collaborate to develop new biometric encrypted smart card wallet

According to the Biometric Update, CardLab and eSignus have collaborated to develop a cryptocurrency hardware wallet solution in the form of a smart card to take advantage of the biosecurity of a fingerprint card. The FPC1321 T-shaped fingerprint sensor from FPC provides fingerprint authorization, an RFID jammer prevents wireless hacking, and a snap switch allows the card to be turned off when not in use. The card can also communicate wirelessly with any host device and can include dual dynamic magnetic stripes. CardLab provides contactless NFC and Bluetooth connectivity to the card, and eSignus said the card will be produced in the third quarter of 2020.
