Before making the transfer the user authenticates himself to the bank with a fingerprint and an integral code.

The bank then sends back a code which appears on the screen.

This code, called a flicker code, contains the actual TAN and can in turn be read from the ID card.

The procedure thus requires no additional software or hardware of any sort for the transaction. The fingerprint itself is stored only on the ID card. (PN 2008.10)

1 Enter your codes, once and for all this requires ( Serial number and fingercode )

2 Obtain the flicker code from your screen ( Your screen transfers a coded message to your internetpassport )

3 Record your fingerprints on the internetpassport

( sweep your finger on the internetpassport fingerprint sensor)
