France To Pilot-Test World's First Totally Biometric Payment System

Announcing the world's first consumer trial of new payment method incorporating payment cards, biometrics and mid-range contactless technology

Today Natural Security, in partnership with Banque Accord, BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole, Crédit Mutuel Arkéa, Groupe Auchan, Ingenico and Leroy Merlin, has launched a pilot deployment of a new payment method that combines a smart payment card, biometrics and mid-range contactless communication.
Customers of Auchan, Leroy Merlin and certain associated retailers in Angoulême (close to Bordeaux, South West of France) and Villeneuve d’Ascq (close to Lille, North of France) have the opportunity to try out this simple, smooth new way of paying for purchases that also guarantees privacy and protection of personal data.

Two biometric technologies will be tested during the six-month pilot: digital fingerprints in Angoulême and finger vein patterns in Villeneuve d'Ascq. Customers of partner banks will be invited to visit their bank branch to register their biometric data in their credit card so they can take advantage of the opportunity to pay for purchases using this unique method in participating stores. All transactions are authenticated using biometrics and contactless technology, so customers do not have to present their cards or enter a PIN.

Combining a secure mid-range contactless technology with biometrics simplifies authentication as the user only has to place a finger on a biometric reader, they no longer have to enter a PIN or manipulate a card (hands-free user experience). This saves time at the till spent searching in bags and pockets for purses or wallets.

The solution will be deployed in stores so it can be tested in real-life situations... We fully expect that the results of the trial will be positive and we look forward to replicating the success internationally.”

re: 'deployed in stores....replicating....internationally'

ATM's in Europe and Japan have been using this technology for a while...

Biometric Cash Machines To Condition Public Arrive In Europe 5-16-10 "The system is based on the recognition of the pattern of veins in an enrolled customer's finger, a form of biometric technology developed by Hitachi. The technology is already widely used in Japan but new to Europe" [see post]

...but there is a big difference between ATM use and what is being done here, which is to use it as an actual payment system. With the ATM you still had cash in hand when you went into the store, but with this, you only have your hand. In other words, nothing. Empty-handed. That is called being owned - like a slave. And definitely take note...they are "looking forward" to using their system to eliminate cash internationally.
compare: NWO - Google, Walmart, Etc. Pushing Cashless Mobile-Payment Systems; And Isis 9-1-12 "...the NWO "smart-phone'' mobile-payment system, which is designed to eventually eliminate cash, is moving forward in leaps and bounds...It is not hard to understand that when virtual-money replaces real cash-in-hand that personal autonomy i.e. freedom is something that would no longer exist. Absolutely every single transaction would be monitored resulting in zero privacy and loss of financial control. Each and every individual will be at the mercy of the 'cloud-managers' of the digital netherworld...On that note it is very interesting to note the name of the new mobile-payment system being rolled out this month (Sept. '12)... [is] "Isis"? Who is Isis? Here is a basic answer..."Isis" is the embodiment of the concept of the "divine feminine" which permeates many religions...the driving spirit of a world that is in absolute rebellion against the True God..."
