In this research I will reference to a smart card that embeds a fingerprint sensor using the terms ‘Biometric Card’, ‘Biometric Smart Card’ or ‘BSC’. Biometric Smart Cards for ID application will be referred as FeID that stands for Fingerprint Electronic ID Card. FPC is also an abbreviation of ‘Fingerprint Card’ but I am not going to use it because it’s often used in the biometric industry to identify the Swedish company Fingerprint Cards.

Should you have any comment about this research you are welcome to contact me.
