The card terminal has, in the Swedish military version, been developed in co-operation with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration in order to provide strong identification of users in the modern defence. All included technology have thoroughly been selected from companies in the technical frontline.

Comex BioSec Reader® has several unique built-in features and is designed to be secure in an unsafe environment. During processing of secret data such as PIN-codes and fingerprint templates, the reader’s communication interface to the outside world is deactivated. Before the communication interface is reactivated again, all buffers in the reader are actively erased.

The incorporation of finger biometrics in Comex BioSec Reader® strengthen the security by providing a third identity control to smart card and PIN-code, when creating a digital signature. The card terminal uses a match-on-card technology, where the users fingerprint, retrieved from the sensor, is matches with the stored fingerprint on the smart card.
