Quard Technology, a fledgling firm based in Roskilde near Copenhagen, has taken out a global patent on a mobile biometric smart card which can be implemented in devices such as mobile phones, PDAs and credit cards. The smartcard will be tested in spring in a number of companies in Denmark and Europe for proof of concept.

The card is a mobile biometric authentication system, which creates single use passwords when the fingerprint of the cardholder is recognised. The card comprises a swipe-sensor, processor, display and a battery which lasts for up to 2,000 readings. The existing card is five millimetres thick, but the next generation of the card, which is expected in May, will be just two millimetres thick.

In 2005, CAT-Symbion invested DKK 1.5 m (USD 240,000) in Quard Technology. Uffe Clemmensen, director of the company, says it is preparing for a new round of investment. If everything goes to plan, sales of the biometric card are expected to start this summer. The news was reported by Computerworld.
