[26] The detailed specification herein is presented for purposes of illustration only and not to the any limitation. Thus, the detailed specification of various embodiments herein makes reference to the accompanying representation of drawings, flow diagrams and pictures, which show various embodiments by way of illustration. While these various embodiments are described with sufficient detail to enable those technical skilled in the art to practice the disclosure, it should be understood that other embodiments may be realized and that logical and mechanical changes may be made without outstating from the spirit and scope of the disclosure. For e.g, the steps recited in any of the method or process specification may be executed in any order and are not limited to the order presented. Moreover, any of the functions or steps may be outsourced to or performed by one or more third parties. Furthermore, any reference to singular includes plural embodiments, and any reference to more than one component may include a singular embodiment. [27] The stored biometric information may be used by a virtual account system to identify and/or authenticate a person associated with a transaction virtual PAN using a biometric device. As used herein, "stored fingerprint", "stored palm scan", or other behavioural and similar phrases may include a digital illustration and/or other illustration of biometric or palm data. A stored data may identify features, edges, dimensions, and other information used to identify the biometric behavioural or physiological such as palm, facial, retinal, fingerprint, vocal, handwriting, gesture, or other biometric information of an individual.

[28] The present disclosure includes processes, methods, and electronic fintech payment products for completing transactions using a virtual PAN associated with biometrics, PIN, and/or palm scan information to identify the registered account holder. The systems may authorize and/or unauthorized transactions based in part on authentication data known to the issued virtual PAN holder such as a PIN/password, or palm data. Transactions may include all type of bank transaction, any point of sale transaction, bill- payment or purchase, rewards or loyalty point’s transaction or any request services by visiting bank branch and all type of ATM transactions unless otherwise mentioned but not limited, or otherwise making changes or payments related to a transaction account. The systems may also approve and/or decline transactions based in part on biometric data inherent to the account holder such as palm scan, facial recognition, fingerprints, voice recognition and/or retinal scans. As such, customer holding account may transact without needing credit card, debit card, or mobile device, digital wallet or wallet containing an account number.

[29] As used herein, "exactly match" or "associated with" or similar phrases may include an identical match, a partial match, meeting certain criteria, matching a subset of data, a correlation, satisfying certain criteria, a correspondence, an association, an algorithmic relationship and/or the like. For example, a first stored information may match a second stored in response to the captured information being sufficiently similar to imply the biometric data of each registered is likely from the same customer or person, even though the source from which the stored registered information are generated may not be exactly identical. Similarly, as used herein, "authenticate" or similar terms may include an exact authentication, a partial authentication, authenticating a subset of data, a correspondence, satisfying certain criteria, an association, an algorithmic relationship and/or the like.

[30] With reference to FIG. 1, A payment system generate the random number combination of finger illustrated as Ll, L2, L3, L4, L5, R6, R7, R8, R9, R10 where L5 and R6 represent the thumb of left and right respectively. Where identification of number for biometric finger data has been captured will be stored into communication message to validate against same finger verification.

[31] Also, in case of conflict of data has been found in such cases the second factor authentication requires by using the (left or right) palm scan or biometric password or PIN against stored virtual PAN while issued.

[32] With reference to FIG. 2, a method I (J for enrollment) for processing any type of transactions without using debit, credit cards or mobile device or digital wallet is shown, with various embodiments of the invention. The method I may include a control processor device G in communication with and/or comprising a biometric data device E. Control processor device G may generate the cryptogram using key security algorithm F to encrypt such message data; wherein EPOS , computer(laptop, desktop, notebook or tablet), or a set of computers, ATM, point-of-sale device, any cellular or smart phone, any wearable device, or any other device capable of capturing a biometric data device E to collect identifying biometric information data to authenticate stored virtual PAN data for customer’s account.

[33] With various embodiments of the invention, biometric data device E may comprise any capable of device by scanning, storing, processing, capturing and/or communicating biometric data or other digital form of biometric data. The biometric data device E include fingerprint scanner, palm scanner, retinal scanner, touch pad, or other form of biometric data devices capable of capturing behavioural biometric data and/or biometric data. The biometric information captured by biometric data device may be encrypted into message in the form of standard payment message format or other representations at control processor device G prior to route into bank server or cloud C over the network. The biometric data prior to route may encrypt the raw biometric data from exposure during communication into network, further route to bank server C. Bank server/cloud C may include one or more devices such as application servers, computers, or other suitable devices.

[34] For larger system, identifying a customer based on Biometrics due to false acceptance rate (FAR) and/or false recognition rate (FRR) being relatively high compared to the number of customers in larger system. In small scale systems potentially having very less number of customers, using biometric identification may be challenging as the FAR and FRR rates virtually guarantee collisions and/or false recognitions when matching a customer to a virtual account. As such, the customer may choose on the POS the issued account to make payment by using palm scan or entering a biometric password or PIN, which issued for authenticate with biometric data. Additionally, encrypted biometric data may be sent in same standard message format to the backend for verification processing.

[35] Control processing device G may be in communication with bank server C over a payment communication network. The payment network may be local area network using TCP/IP communication, Wi-Fi, NFC and wide area network in the Internet. The payment communication network may also be an internal network isolated from the Internet. The payment communication networks of method I may be exposed to third party attacks at various points. Control processing device G and bank server C may thus communicate over the network with encrypted messages. Encryption may be performed by any of the techniques to generate cryptogram message available in the art or which may later available. E.g., available encryption key techniques may include DUKPT, Racal, and RSA, DSA, PKI, GnuPG or other symmetric or asymmetric algorithms but not limited. While message communicates to such level encryption required as TFS/SSF may be used in conjunction with payload encryption to further secure communications.

[36] With various embodiments of the invention, bank server/cloud C may use the biometric data from a customer account holder in association with a virtual primary account number to access or identify a transaction account associated with the customer account. The virtual PAN may be implying to biometrics such that the virtual PAN is only valid for use with biometric transactions listed herein. Bank server C may retain a mapping of virtual PANs associated may not be one-to-one. A virtual PAN based on each of fingerprint features or other form of behavioural combination thereof, or a subset multiple virtual for the account associated with the customer’s account. Stored biometric data will be associated with accounts by storage in a data store specific to virtual issued accounts.

[37] With various embodiments of the invention, the virtual PAN may have any segment, or other limitations as to where and when the virtual PAN may be issued and used. Domain restriction controls may be implemented upon enrolment. While examples of domain restriction controls may include a value limitation of such transactions, and the authentication method, etc. A bank may issue multiple virtual PANs, for example, to merchants to complete a single transaction. A bank may also limit transactions based on virtual PANs to any sort of merchant transaction. The mapping may be stored in an appropriate virtual PAN data store D using any DB or another suitable database type. Merchants may utilize the virtual PAN to calculate the cryptogram sent to bank servers C to request authorization. A cryptogram data may include a hash of the biometric data, transaction details, merchant details, date and time of the transaction, a nonce for reply attack prevention), an indicator that this is an physical transaction," without using card or mobile or digital wallet for the authentication methods.

[38] With various embodiments of the invention, bank server may also use authentication data from the customer’s account to identify the transaction which associated with the individual. For example, the captured authentication data may be used to choose input associated with the customer’s account from a database.

[39] With reference to FIG. 3, a complete payment diagram which will be self-guided from the image itself.

[40] The POS may be an existing POS having biometric capture capabilities and updated with software to enable the functionality described herein. Older POS and ATM devices without biometric capture capabilities may also integrate hardware updates and/or replacements to enable biometric capture capabilities.

[41] With reference to Fig. 4A, Merchant will initiate the transaction on the secure Biometric / Merchant device (using the Secured Biometrics Authorization Process) for the customer to make the payment of the goods purchase. Before Merchant initiate the transaction (with Customer’s Goods Purchase Amount Details), Merchant will also setup his Credit Settlement Account / Direct Deposit of the goods purchase amount.

[42] Benefit of this invention is to provide the security to avoid the fraud and tempering the device at merchant end.

[43] With reference to Fig. 4, Customer will authorize the transaction by using Merchant Biometric Device (POS, EPOS, Vending Machine or any capable device and ATM) to capture customer Biometric Authorization data and Goods Purchase transaction / any type transactions details with various selection input(s) on devices provided by Merchant / Consumer; further route to payment processor.

[44] According to Block A, Bank Server will receive the Biometric data and search the transaction account authorization details. To assess the risk associated with the payment transaction, input data can be identified to a fraud and risk of payment processor. The bank server will use the Received Biometric Data as criteria against the stored biometric data to identify the account (Virtual PAN) and authorization.

[45] With various embodiments of the invention, bank server may enroll customer for Biometric authorization process. Customer Biometric data will be captured and stored in the Bank / Financial Institute server / Cloud Server to issue the account (the Virtual PAN).

[46] Bank server (Fig 2: Block C) may compare the biometric data against the stored Biometric data in the Virtual PAN. Stored Biometric Virtual PAN may be any digital representation of biometric data in non-image form. For further explanation of security based on fingerprints and gestures see U.S. patent application Ser. No. 14/860,375, entitled "SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR GESTURE BASED BIOMETRIC SECURITY," which is incorporated herein in its entirety.

[47] Under the representation of Behavioral and Physiological biometric security features, further explanation of authenticating based on facial recognition see U.S. patent application Ser. No. 14/273,225, entitled "SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AUTHENTICATING FACIAL BIOMETRIC DATA AGAINST SECONDARY SOURCES," which is incorporated herein in its entirety.

[48] With various embodiments, the transaction may also be evaluated on supplementary criteria. This invention payment method only may be restricted to only register Biometric Authorization Process. Customer who has not registered Biometric Authorization Process, are having limitation of the account (Virtual Pan).

[49] During verification / authorization of biometric data conflict against the stored biometric data, as result of the comparison between the received biometric data and the stored biometric data is ambiguous (Fig 4 : Block C). In response to a strong likelihood that the biometric data does not match or the risk of the transaction is unacceptable, bank server may decline the transaction (Fig 4: Block D).

[50] In response to an ambiguous result from the comparison, the system may request additional authentication and/or biometric data (Fig 4: Block E). A risky transaction may be characterized by risk markers. Examples of risk markers include, for example, a password entry device without protection or a velocity transaction that seems unlikely such as a user conducting two transactions in a short amount of time on same date between two physical locations that are significantly separated by distance. System may use the additional data to authenticate the individual associated with the transaction account by comparing the additional data to known data associated with the account. System may decline the transaction in response to the step-up authentication failing (Fig 4: Block D). In response to the step-up authentication passing, system may continue the transaction with the account (Fig 4: Block G). In continuing the transaction with the account, system may apply additional criteria to evaluate risk, account settings, domain restriction controls for biometric payment transactions, or other criteria prior to authorizing a transaction.

[51] With various embodiments, system illustrated as executing on portion of authorization process of transmitted the biometric data to the Bank server in encrypted mode / format. Further validation take place on decrypted message on various characteristic of message data.

[52] In event of more than one biometric identifier may be used in order to limit the possibility of false positives allowing for duplicate authentications. For example, the combination of fingerprint from an individual may be used to verify a transaction account belonging to the individual. The biometric data may be supplemented with authentication data such as palm scan and biometric PIN or Password.

[53] System may determine whether the addition data request authorization was successful (Fig 4: Block G). System may decline the transaction in response to the additional verification being unsuccessful (Fig 4: Block E). System may detect unauthorized transaction by evaluating Biometric data unsuccessful by using the received biometric data and/or authentication data as criteria and receiving an empty results set. System may also detect an unsuccessful transaction by submitting a search query using the biometric data and/or authentication data as criteria and receiving a result set having accounts belonging to more than one individual.

[54] During successful authorization, system may determine with various characteristic of transaction message (which is valid) associated with transaction on the associated account (Fig 4: Block G). The account associated with the biometric data may also include domain restriction controls for the use of the biometric-based payments. For example, the account may include a daily, total, weekly, or other spending limit on biometric -based transactions. The account may also restrict biometric-based transactions to limited merchant segments in case of emergency such as, for example, food, medical, transportation, or lodging.

[55] In response to the transaction being invalid, system may decline the transaction (Fig 4:

Block D). In response to the transaction characteristics indicating the transaction is valid, system may continue the transaction with the identified account (Fig 4: Block G).

[56] Additional / secondary account holder can be added to the same account by capturing Biometrics measures / data of the secondary account holder and stored / map along with Primary account holder’s biometric data. This will enable both, primary and secondary, account holders can perform the payment transaction for the same account using the biometric payment method solution. [57] Customer account details and / or other biometric data can be stored in the database.
