SAFLINK Corporation, a leading provider of biometric and smart card security solutions, today announced that its subsidiary, Litronic, has licensed Precise Biometrics’ Match-on-Card (MoC) technology to add an additional security component to it’s jForte card, a high assurance token designed for the U.S. Department of Defense and similar agencies.

“We believe that Precise Biometrics’ Match-on-Card technology will be very compelling for our most security-conscious government customers,” said Jeff Affuso, President of Public Sector Sales for SAFLINK. “While jForte is designed to meet FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified — the highest level of security qualification available — Precise Match-on-Card technology raises the bar for high assurance tokens. SAFLINK sees Precise MoC technology as an integral part of this solution, as it will help provide our customers with a private, secure, and scaleable card system.”

One of the advantages of the jForte Smart Card technology is that it can be used as a portable authentication token, where an individual’s biometric credentials are stored and matched on the card, enabling users to verify their identity anywhere — a particularly useful characteristic in a multi-office, multi-agency, or military context such as the DoD’s Common Access Card (CAC). A jForte card equipped with MoC adds the capability to verify the identity of an individual, without their biometric credentials ever leaving the card — thereby providing an additional layer of privacy protection for the individual cardholder. With the Precise MoC technology, jForte can offer SAFLINK customers a high performance and high assurance biometric-based smart card solution.

Affuso continued, “SAFLINK has DoD customers who require independent biometric capabilities. All the biometric functions — data capture, data processing/reduction, template generation, and hybrid matching algorithms are implemented within a single microchip on the card, and do not require external computer assistance.”

“We believe Precise MoC technology is quickly becoming the biometric de facto standard for organizations that want the advantages of a single card for both logical and physical access controls,” said Phil Myers, Americas Sales and Marketing Vice President for Precise Biometrics. “One card gets you in the door and logs you into the network — all with the convenience of a smart card and your finger. SAFLINK can now provide government and commercial companies with a robust biometric solution that is secure and easy to use while protecting the individual’s privacy.”
