Fingerprint scanner for payment cards. Samsung introduced the industry’s first universal security chip for this purpose.


Samsung has introduced what it calls an intelligent multi-functional fingerprint security chip for biometric payment cards. Simply put, this is a chip for implementing a fingerprint scanner on ordinary bank (and not only) cards.

The chip is called S3B512C. It is EMVCo and Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (CC EAL) 6+ certified and operates in accordance with the latest Mastercard Biometric Evaluation Plan Summary (BEPS) specifications.

The S3B512C combines a fingerprint sensor, Secure Element (SE) and Secure Processor, adding an extra layer of authentication and security to payment cards. S3B512C is primarily intended for payment cards, but can also be used in cards requiring highly secure authentication such as student or employee identification, membership, or building access

Samsung claims it is the industry’s first all-in-one security chip that reads biometric information with a fingerprint sensor, stores and authenticates encrypted data with a tamper-resistant Secure Element, and parses and processes data with a secure processor. With three key features integrated into a single chip, the S3B512C can help card manufacturers reduce the number of chips needed and streamline their card development processes for biometric payment cards.
