Anonymous Authentication: using a smartcard or smartphone/tablet
After issuance of the biometric smartcard, smartphone or tablet the user can anonymous authenticate ('prove who you are') oneself . Furtheron we explain how it exactly works.
During the issuance process a biometric template of the finger (or voice etc.) will be stored on the smartcard or smartphone. The template will only be stored on the card or smartphone, nowhere else!
After issuance the cardholder or smartphone owner can authenticate oneself simply anonymous and after that accessing the wanted application.
In the following description we use a smartcard. But instead of the smartcard obviously a smartphone or tablet with integrated fingerprint sensor can be used.
First, place your smartcard in the combined fingerprint cardreader.
