To keep pace with the technology development, applications and data, the world must move beyond passwords and PINs toward more sophisticated security measures, fighting about against evermore sophisticated hackers and fraud.

First generation external biometrics including fingerprint, voice and Iris are now commonplace.
B-Secur represents the next generation of internal biometrics.

ECG biometric authentication technology utilises an individuals' heartbeat electrical wave that is filtered and amplified into an algorithm to authenticate against a stored profile. The use of ECG as a biometric has been proven by academic research and more recently through B-Secur’s sample testing to reliably and uniquely identify individuals. The heart patterns present in an ECG signal are unique due to electrophysiological variations of the heart muscle. Examples of these variations include the rhythm of blood pumping in and out of the heart, the size and position of the heart, and unique variations...

There are a number of strengths of ECG in biometric recognition compared to other biometrics; such as fingerprint, voice, or facial recognition including:
- It is an internal biometric making it much harder to mimic
- Easily scalable due to sensor & hardware being mass-produced for the medical industry
- Enrolment template adapts with time meaning minimal degradation
- Intra-variability of the ECG makes it more secure to spoofing attacks
- Seamless authentication plus liveness detection, with minimal effort or inputs from the user
B-Secur have developed a number of solutions to demonstrate the capabilities of ECG biometric technology. These are:
1. B-Secur Smartcard – Two sensors built into the card read an individual’s ECG through their fingers for a variety of purposes including physical access control, logical access control, secure financial transactions and ID and passport applications.
2. B-Secur SmartATM – Sensors have been built into an ATM keypad allowing the user to withdraw cash using just their fingers to authenticate themselves.
3. B-Secur Smartcase - Provides unique ECG based biometric smartphone security to secure data, devices and apps.
4. B-Secur Tracker – provides a wearable device that includes GPS to locate and determine the user identity.
5. STAK (Secure Transaction Authentication Key) – utilises ECG biometric technology in a bluetooth enabled dongle, to securely authenticate high value financial transactio
