(KoreaHerald) SK Telecom has launched the world’s first keycard applied with both quantum technology and biometric identification technology.
Together with Switzerland-based quantum safety solutions firm ID Quantique and a local biometric identification startup Octatco, SKT co-developed the “EzQuant” keycard equipped with a quantum random number generator.
“EzQuant combines QRNG technology with FIDO-based fingerprint certification keycard,” a company official said. FIDO — fast identity online — is a technology that verifies users’ biometrics against template stored on the device each time users request access.
EzQuant keycards are compatible with all biometrics certifications and users can access their PCs as usual, for example. As the keycards support FIDO certification, Windows Hello and NFC function, they can be used for certification for MS Office 365, Azure Cloud, Google’s Gmail, YouTube, Facebook and other services.
