Where is the fingerprint held and is it secure?
The biometric reference image, that is captured during enrollment, is immediately processed and transformed into an abstract biometric template. This biometric template is not the fingerprint image itself, and for utmost security is stored within a secure storage area of the Secure Element (SE) chip.
This biometric template consists of features and data extracted, by a non-commutable algorithm, from the fingerprint images. The IDEX Biometrics reference design and biometric matching algorithm does not rely on or include personally identifiable information (PII) metadata.
