It is supposed that start of "Service of the analysis of engineering devices" will allow to select "risk group". Different users who log into the system from one device and vice versa will get into it. Banks will get access to assessment of each client of the Central Bank and will be able to check, depending on a risk degree, its transaction.

According to Tatyana Zharkova, the technology tested on transactions of legal entities showed "the high potential". Suspicions will call devices which several clients, or the devices which are at the same time registered in different banks use at once in banks.

As the partner of Арбитраж.ру law firm Vladimir Efremov noted, this project will become threat for those who are engaged in money muling because they have a large number of accounts in different banks, but limited number of gadgets from which transactions are made,
