Samsung and Diebold Nixdorf in biometric ATM tie-up

Thursday 15 June 2017 | 13:55 CET | News

Samsung SDS America has teamed up with US payment technology specialist Diebold Nixdorf to develop a mobile-based biometric authentication system for cardless ATM transactions. The system allows customers to stage a withdrawal via their mobile banking app prior to arrival at the ATM. They then need to simply tap their mobile device to the near field communications (NFC) reader on the ATM, confirm their transaction and instantly receive a prompt to complete authentication via facial recognition on their mobile device. Once verified, cash will dispense and the transaction is complete in "less than half the time" of a standard ATM transaction, said the partners in a statement.

The technology was showcased at the recent Digital Banking conference in Austin and will be piloted by Banco Popular de Puerto Rico this summer, having already worked with Samsung and its biometric authentication platform. The partners added that the system uses Samsung SDS Nexsign, a FIDO compliant biometric authentication platform, providing a faster and more secure approach to cardless transactions.
