CARDLOGIX SMART CARDS GET A BIOMETRIC BOOST
Irvine, Ca. April 22, 2002 -- CardLogix, a leading smart card
company, today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with
Precise Biometrics AB of Sweden. The
partnership integrates CardLogix smart cards with Precise Biometrics
fingerprint readers for transaction and physical security applications.
Precise Biometrics becomes a CardLogix Smart Partner, joining a
worldwide network of smart card solution developers working with the
CardLogix smart card platforms. CardLogix
has incorporated the Precise Biometrics' readers into their M.O.S.T.
Toolz development product and is also incorporating Precise Biometrics'
Match-on-Card algorithms directly into the their M.O.S.T.™ card
operating system. As part of the agreement, CardLogix is also re-selling
Precise Biometrics readers.
Right Combination For Secure Identification
partnership combines the advanced encryption power of smart cards with
the proven security of biometric verification. Using these technologies,
a smart card stores a person's fingerprint, which is an absolute and
unique identifier. With each use of the card, the reader captures the
user's fingerprint and it is matched with the print stored in the card.
Once that match is made, the card OS can proceed with other
cryptographic or processing functions for user and system authorization.
Biometrics' Match-on-Card technology stores and executes all
identification directly on the smart card, instead of relying on outside
processing where data can be intercepted and misused. Transaction time
is also faster, because data never leaves the card.
of systems that deploy these technologies has been streamlined with
CardLogix' M.O.S.T. Toolz,
which includes the Winplex®
API version 1.20 and the M.O.S.T. Toolz file creation utility. Together,
they configure card system parameters to meet any requirement for access
and security. A powerful
32-Bit API, Winplex®
enables developers to link smart cards into larger distributed
management systems, i.e. intranets or financial management systems
without having to do low-level programming.
rollout of technology from the partnership starts with immediate
availability of CardLogix Winplex®
version 1.20, which is provided as part of M.O.S.T. Toolz for $99 and
includes sample source code for biometric applications. M.O.S.T. Cards
will be fully integrated with Match-On-Card capability within the next
60- 90 days.
