Out Now: Smartphones for Authentication

Reconnaissance International, co-publisher of Currency News™, is pleased to announce the release of its new report – ‘Smartphones for Authentication’ – the only publication of its kind.

Smartphones are revolutionising the world of authentication, thanks to their ubiquity, connectivity, and computing power. As a result, they have given over 80% of the world’s population (ie. those people currently owning smartphones) the power to read barcodes and validate security features not previously available to them.

Smartphones are thus accelerating the move towards more standardised, universal authentication methods and are giving rise to technologies that simply didn’t exist before.

The 60+ page publication explores the underlying technology and use cases of smartphone technologies within the authentication ecosystem, including in the individual areas of currency and payments, personal identity, product and document authentication.

The author of the report is Dr Alan Hodgson, an independent expert in printing and imaging technologies, who is active in the field of international standards for photography, printed electronics and wearable devices.

The report is available to order from https://estore.reconnaissance.net/product/smartphone-for-authentication/, in PDF or printed format. Subscribers to Currency News™ receive a 25% discount.
