COLOMBES, France. - Monday, February 24th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) Oberthur Technologies, a world leader in digital security solutions for the mobility space, will demonstrate two innovations during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona: the first worldwide implementation of FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) authentication in a SIM, and a voice biometry authentication, both allowing a more convenient and secure mobile user experience.
