These bracelets enable the end-user to make a payment in an amusement park or to open a hotel room door, thereby eliminating the traditional ticket and key card systems. One of the most well-known example of a smart bracelet is Disneys MagicBand. This sensor-based wristband is an all-in-one device that allows the visitors to check-in at entrance, secure entry into theme and water parks, to unlock their hotel room, and to purchase food and souvenirs by touching the keypad of their smartphones.
According to the report, biometrics integrated into smart cards offer the advantage of offline authentication, which is beneficial for end-users present in remote locations without proper communication infrastructure. In addition, smart cards have the added advantage of storing many applications for multiple purposes. Hence, a smart card integrated with biometrics enables physical and logical access.
Further, the report states that fingerprints can be affected by factors such as cuts, dirt, and skin allergies. Fingerprint databases can also be hacked and genuine fingerprints replaced with duplicate latent fingerprints.
