+ - MasterCard joining push for fingerprint ID standard->

Submitted by schwit1
schwit1 (797399) writes "MasterCard is joining the FIDO Alliance, signaling that the payment network is getting interested in using fingerprints and other biometric data to identify people for online payments.

MasterCard will be the first major payment network to join FIDO. The Alliance is developing an open industry standard for biometric data such as fingerprints to be used for identification online. The goal is to replace clunky passwords and take friction out of logging on and purchasing using mobile devices.

FIDO is trying to standardize lots of different ways of identifying people online, not just through biometric methods."
