How Does the Online Fingerprint Authentication Solution Work?
If a user wants to have access to the online fingerprint authentication solution, then he/she must register with the system. For a successful registration, the user must provide a fingerprint image using the biometric device. During the registration time, the fingerprint authentication system takes the user’s fingerprint image and extracts the unique biological characteristic, such as minutiae points from the user’s fingerprint image. It then stores them as templates in the database.
Once the user gets successfully registered with the system, then the user is allowed to operate the fingerprint authentication system. However, for utilizing the system the user must provide a current fingerprint image. The system extracts the minutiae points from the user’s current fingerprint and compares them against the stored templates in the user’s profile or in the database. During the comparison period, and based on the pre-defined threshold value, the user is successfully authenticated or rejected.
Businesses can use online fingerprint authentication technology for a successful login into the system, but not for the signing purposes. For example, to unlock an app in a mobile device or to gain an access inside a room. There are also a few other companies, which use the online fingerprint authentication for successful business transactions. Consider that you have sent an important document to your client in order to obtain his/her signatures. Yet, your client was unable to access the electronic signature platform to sign the document, as it first demands an access to the online fingerprint authentication technology system.
In this case, you should register your client with the fingerprint technology in order to provide access to the solution. Once a user is successfully registered with the system, then they can access the system. But they still need to provide a current fingerprint image to successfully login to the electronic signature platform. On the electronic signature platform, your client can open and view business documents and can use either system generated signatures, or static and dynamic signatures to sign a business document.
Businesses can effectively utilize the fingerprint authentication solution because it adds an additional security to various business documents, while securely saving and encrypting the sensitive business data.
