In the banking industry, tellers are often required to obtain authorization from supervisors before conducting sensitive transactions such as withdrawals, deposits, or large electronic transfers. Traditionally, supervisors granted authorization by entering a password or swiping an identity card. However, these methods have proven vulnerable to security breaches.
Passwords can be easily compromised through surveillance cameras or prying eyes, while identity cards are susceptible to theft or misplacement. These weaknesses highlight the risks associated with relying solely on "what you know" or "what you have" identification methods, as they can lead to unauthorized access and substantial losses for both the bank and its clients.
FBI FAP 10, STQC Certified, & MOSIP-compliant Capacitive Fingerprint Scanner
In partnership with the Indonesian IT security firm, Aratek integrated its cutting-edge A400 fingerprint scanner into the local bank's teller management system, effectively streamlining the process and mitigating vulnerabilities.
The Aratek A400 capacitive fingerprint scanner excels in capturing high-quality fingerprint biometric images, forming the foundation of the authentication process. The solution incorporates robust parameters such as transaction types, associated restrictions, and special conditions. Whenever approval is required, the system prompts supervisors to authenticate themselves by presenting their fingerprint to the A400 fingerprint scanner. Authorization is granted once the supervisor's identity and scanned fingerprint are verified.
By simply placing their finger on the A400 fingerprint scanner, supervisors can securely and promptly grant authorization, eliminating the need for passwords that can be forgotten or stolen.
The A400 fingerprint scanner employs advanced capacitive sensing and live finger detection technologies, effectively preventing various forms of spoofing, including sophisticated methods that attempt to replicate prints from captured images or fingerprint residues.
