Samsung SDS, the IT service affiliate of Samsung Group, has announced that it is launching a new fingerprint mobile payment service with local payment gateway firms KG Mobilians and KG Inicis within South Korea, with global expansion planned for later. The South Korean tech giant has also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Korea Information Certificate Authority (KICA), a government-backed certificate licenser, and will later launch other authentication services based on biometrics, the company said. "Going forward, we plan to not only target hardware manufacturers that make smartphones, but to also provide our biometric solutions to online service and security companies," said a Samsung SDS spokesperson.
