Microlatch: What is the golden bullet?
Microlatch invented and owns the patent rights which enables secure biometric access to mobile devices.
It owns the specific biometric enrollment function that resides within a chip under the home button on a mobile device. Without Microlatch technology
- A user could not register their biometric signature, without infringing the patent.
- Banks and smartphone providers could not offer secure biometric mobile solutions, without infringing the patent.
The patents on biometric technology are currently being used by global leaders. Charter Pacific is seeking to accelerate the commercialisation of the patents and to secure license revenue for their use.
Biometric: Smart Cards
Biometric Smart Cards are a smart card containing a fingerprint sensor within its structure. This provides a simple and secure way for cardholders to authenticate their identity for in-store purchases with their fingerprint through the biometric enrollment function as an alternative to PIN or signature.
Visa and Mastercard have chips embedded in hundreds of millions of credit and debit cards around the world. They are used in more than 200 countries and process billions of payments each year.
