ISO/IEC 27553 — Information technology — Security techniques — Security and privacy requirements for authentication using biometrics on mobile devices [2 parts, both DRAFT]

 

Introduction

This standard will provide high-level requirements for biometric authentication on mobile devices, including functional components and communications.

Biometrics are increasingly used for user authentication on mobile devices.  They are easier to use and harder to steal or fake than conventional passwords and tokens. However, proliferating devices and approaches are fragmenting the market, hence standardization offers advantages for users and manufacturers.

This standard will outline commonplace information risks that biometric authentication methods should normally address.
