Match on Card
You will find below smart cards with match-on-card capability,
that is able to compare a live fingerprint signature with a internally stored signature,
which is desirable for security purpose: your fingeprint signature never leave the
At the moment, the live fingerprint is processed by an external microprocessor
to get the live signature because this is requiring a lot of CPU ressources.
The NIST is organizing a specific test for match-on-card:
(2006 sep) Digent demonstrated at BCC2006 Baltimore
a match-on-card using a
TiEx-32J smart card.
