Secure fingerprint USB encrypts stored data

November 28, 2017 // By Julien Happich
At the heart of Biolog Device´s highly secure fingerprint USB (BFU100A) is Hyperstone's U9 flash memory controller coupled with Hyperstone’s API (Application Programming Interface).

The BFU100A has a fingerprint sensor integrated into the front panel of the USB which is controlled though software commands sent over a high speed SPI interface. Highly secure personal settings, like mobile payments, accessing cloud services and unlocking phones can be achieved through fingerprint biometrics. Hyperstone’s API permits the addition of proprietary firmware extensions to the existing firmware. This enabled Biolog Device to integrate its proprietary fingerprint sensor, thus enabling extra authentication and encryption to further protect data as it is passed through the controller onto the flash. Hyperstone´s U9 is employed to manage the flow of both biometric and user data stored inside the USB stick. The firmware extensions developed by Biolog Device using Hyperstone’s API ensure the fast recognition speed of fingerprints, while retaining excellent read and write performance of data to and from the flash memory. Biolog Device´s BFU100A is fully compliant with USB 3.1 and boasts SuperSpeed performances guaranteeing maximum performance with secure data processing.
