Researchers at EPFL’s Security and Cryptography Laboratory and startup Global ID have developed a new encryption technique for processing biometric data, virtually impossible to forge.  

The new 3D finger vein imaging technology, which identifies an individual with their unique finger vein pattern, not only fortifies security layer but costs less compared to conventional techniques including fingerprint scanning, writes Tech Crunch.

The system’s scanner and identification mechanism process biometric data without decrypting it at any stage, thus ensuring that a user’s privacy and data sovereignty remains uncompromised, reports Planet Biometrics.

The technology, currently under trial, seems promising for a range of applications including financial transaction authentications, patient identification in hospitals and border controls, notes Biometric Update.
