Even with the leakage of passwords or resident registration numbers, a verification method which makes it impossible for others to be accessed will be applied to the main website of Gyeonggi English Village for the first time beginning at the end of this month. Fingerprint verification smartcard (picture above) developed by e-Smart Korea recognizes cardholder’s fingerprint through fingerprint sensor on the card. Currently, the card is being used in Advanced Broadcasting Media Technology Research Center of Korea Aerospace University as student ID card for attendance check by connecting to a system developed by Cobalt Ray Co., Ltd., and is planned to be applied to credit cards and IDs in the future.
