The next time the system of identification compares a biometric parameters available in the database and verifies them with the information about the scams. “System with high precision compares the photo regardless of the rotation of the head, makeup, lighting, or camera resolution”, — notes the edition.

Thanks to the postal Bank in 2017 could prevent about 10 thousand fraudulent transactions 1.5 billion rubles. The system allows to reduce the bulk of the fraudulent applications executed on false passports, said the Bank “Renaissance Credit”.

However, the theft of biometric data base of customers is much more dangerous than steal passwords or codes. “Eyes and fingerprints for life, they cannot be replaced as the compromised passport or Bank card”, — noted the head of working group “data Protection and infrastructure security in payment systems” of the National payment system Alexander Vinogradov.
