HID Global logoHID Global Corporation company has announced that it has received a number of patents from the Registrar of Patents and Trademarks U.S. for innovative solutions that use three-dimensional (3D) motion to increase the security of access control when working with RFID-devices – smart cards and NFC-smartphones.

The latest invention allows for the management of RFID-devices use several sequences of hand movements or gestures that are becoming the new authentication factor. For example, if the technology incorporated in the RFID smart card, the card reader for the user brings it to the reading device rotates the map by 90 degrees right and then returns to its original position. This significantly reduces the risk of using stolen ID.

The invention opens up new fields of application based on gestures authentication and is ideal for integration into NFC-smartphones. Aside from the convenience and speed, users can define gestural password as an additional factor of authentication for transactions using a smart phone. Such user-defined passwords can be used in two-dimensional mode like a codeword, and also include the three-dimensional movement, for example, a deviation to the left, right, forward or backward.

The invention is also used to unlock the application, opening and closing doors, like a mechanical lock. In addition, with its help you can give a signal that it uses to access the card or phone coerced by others.

The numbers of new patents HID Global – US-8427320 and US-8232879.
