Sagem mobiles introduced the fingerprints for mobile phones in 2010. The integrated fingerprint sensors on mobile phones have since inspired a wide variety of applications that include mobile banking. Despite the commercial success, the solutions were criticized in early stage for poor presentation attack detection algorithms. The subsequent generation of solutions have not only focused on the other biometric modalities such as face and ocular region, but have proposed better solutions for presentation attack detection and privacy protection. Today, a wide range of solutions are provided for presentation attack detection and privacy protection one can choose from.
This talk will present and discuss major milestones for biometrics on smartphones for banking applications. It will summarize the research achievements in the last decade, commercial success and few challenges to be addressed in near future. A particular focus will be given on approaches and solutions proposed within SWAN project (funded by Research Council of Norway) for various smartphone based biometric authentication in the light of banking applications.
