eID for German savings banks using the Feitian bR500 with electronic ID cards
In conjunction with S-Markt & Mehrwert savings banks in Germany can provide secure and convenient eID processes for their customers. The Feitian bR500 Bluetooth smart card reader makes this process possible on tablets and mobile.
eID (meaning electronic identification) refers to digital methods of verifying a user's identity. In banking this is a task that was traditionally performed manually but can now be performed in a much more secure way electronically using the customer's national identity card.
Savings banks can employ strong customer authentication using the eID features of the modern identity card. This is essential when a customer is accessing their account or making a transaction.
The Feitian bR500 smart card reader supports contactless reading of identity cards over NFC. It also features a Bluetooth interface to provide wireless connection for use with iPads and other tablets.
German savings banks can leverage this technology and establish secure digital processes for their customer verification using the OSPlus/OSPlus_neo software with the "Branch-Ident" module from S-Market & Mehrwert. This allows for a fully automated identity check in the branch.
The Feitian bR500 supports wireless operation via Bluetooth. This allows you to read contactless eID cards over NFC using an iPad.
