Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9954851A1] The inventive device comprises sensors (SE) for detecting biometric characteristics BM (e.g. finger pints) and an input device for inputting authentication data AUTINF (e.g. PIN). A data processing device (DE) of the inventive device determines authentication information FPAUTINF from the biometric characteristics BM. Said information is tested by the same testing device PE which tests the authentication information AUTINF to be input via the input device EE. As a result, the device EG can be used by different users and in the same manner as devices without sensors for biometric characteristics. The authentication rules (e.g. for mobile telephones and SIM cards) do not have to be changed in order to permit an authentication using biometric characteristics.
