The Korea Internet & Security Agency announced that KISA has standardized next generation biometrics technology using bio-signals such as brain waves and electrocardiogram.
Bio-signals have been promoted as a next authenticated certification as biometric information such as fingerprint, face and iris match counterfeit is tricky.
KISA set up a research committee for biometrics technology standardization made up of university hospitals and industry leaders in the convergence service, telecommunications and biometrics business. The taskforce will start working on the standardization for smart convergence security services this May. The research will be joined with Asia Biometrics Consortium (ABC) to focus on individual biometrics analysis, standardized mobile biometrics sensor interface, standardized bio-signal identification and protection technologies. The target is to transfer the technologies to the private sector for device and user certification for smart convergence security service by February 2018.
The biometric certification technology can measure bio-signals through wearable devices and transmit them to smartphones. Smartphones can read the bio-signals using the next generation bio recognition algorithm. KISA expects the technology can secure global technological competitiveness in medical areas converged with the IT, and mobile biometrics area.
