  • Sealed box – breaking is the only way to open the device, every physical opening leaves evidences.
  • Physical switch – every opening will lead to erasure of all sensitive data.
  • Fusing – the SMUFS is un-crackable, every attempt to make firmware changes will lead to a permanent destruction.
  • No sensitive data in the SMUFS – at its default operation mode, the SMUFS does not store the data. It collects the fingerprint image and send it to the host. In this function, if the device was hacked, it cannot serve any malicious use.
  • Detect only “live” fingerprint. “Fake finger” will be rejected.
  • Soft lock – the SMUFS unit can be locked and released using the fingerprint of pre-authorized person.
  • Data transfer over Bluetooth 256-bit AES encryption.
  • Addition security layer on top of the link session (optional).
  • Sending irreversible template only (optional) – recovery and “theft” of the fingerprint image is impossible.
  • MAC list – Managing a list of authorized phones in the SMUFS device.
  • Using Bluetooth 2 link limits the connectivity radios, and reduces the risk of an intruder or “listener”.
  • Additional security code – Blocking un-authorized phone.
  • MAC list – Managing a list of authorized scanners.
  • Using Bluetooth 2 link limits the connectivity radios, and cuts the danger of intruders or “listener”.
  • SSL connection for sever identification.
  • Low-friction solution – enable working with the customer’s secured network.
  • Working over GPRS and Wi-Fi, which have a strict secured protocol.
  • Sending irreversible template only (optional) – recovery and “theft” of fingerprint image is impossible.
  • SSL connection for sever identification.
  • Low-friction solution – enable working with the customer’s secured network.
  • Locked and secured groups of identities, using pre-authorized fingerprints.
  • Manage and Limit the information receives from the server for each identification (person picture only, “identified/not identified” only, etc.).
