Fujitsu offers biometrics access to cloud via IoT devices

Thursday 16 February 2017 | 09:46 CET | News
Fujitsu Laboratories created a technology that enables the use of cloud services through multiple IoT devices using the biometric authentication functionality of smartphones and near-field wireless functionality. The technology establishes a network between a cloud service, an IoT device, and a smartphone, and then simultaneously verifies the identity of the user and that the user is in front of the IoT device, Fujitsu said. This technology will be presented at Retailtech Japan, the 33rd retail information systems trade show, held March 7 – 10.
