Intellicheck Mobilisa has been awarded a U.S. Patent governing the two-factor fingerprint biometric identity process that authenticates an identity card with embedded fingerprint biometric information and the live biometric information of a person presenting the card.
The explosion in fingerprint biometrics is being fueled by government and commercial market security needs that include domestic and international threats. Positive identification technology can be used for real-time identification of individuals in support of a wide range of requirements including law enforcement, homeland security, retail and banking fraud prevention, and access to sensitive facilities and information.
Dr. William Roof, Intellicheck CEO, said the patent has significant implications because it covers the process at the heart of the leading biometric fingerprint technology that assures compliance with The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS-201).
According to Roof, the need for advanced security measures couldn't be more critical and the patented technology meets that need while creating a bright future for the company. "We must address the flood of high quality counterfeit identification cards into our country. Fake ID cards are regularly used to board commercial aircraft, apply for credit cards, and purchase goods and services on credit along with other high-risk, fraudulent activities. We believe the issuance of this patent firmly positions us in a leading role in the fingerprint biometric identity authentication industry," he said.
