With Fidesmo access control, smart lock providers can offer customers the ability to add keys securely to a personal device containing a secure element, such as a mobile phone or a fashion wearable. Fidesmo supports some leading access control schemes out-of-the box.
What is a biometric card? It’s the next step in creating a more secure and reliable payment card. Fidesmo is working with the leading biometric card vendors to create a tokenized biometric card. The synergies of these two technologies will create a more secure card, since the real PAN won’t be on the card, but more importantly it will open up for new distribution channels, allowing partners to sell an open biometric card.
CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency)
With the future of financial transactions becoming more digital, the use of currency and cash will follow. In order to fully digitally replace notes and coins, the digital replacement must follow the same traits. Digital currencies must work offline, they must be able to transfer to another person anonymously and be accepted nationally. Securely storing the digital notes or coins offline will require a secure element. Fidesmo is doing exactly this as part of one of the world’s first CBDC projects.
Digital Car Keys
The Car Connectivity Consortium is preparing technical blueprints for digital car keys, supporting NFC and UWB. The foundation will be that credentials are stored on secure elements. This allows Fidesmo to help broaden the market for different hardware manufacturers. Fidesmo is also working to support the keys of proprietary car key solutions, such as the Tesla Key Cards.
