IRVINE, CA, August 26, 2015 — CardLogix, a leading supplier of smart cards and software for the secure transaction of identity, data, and value, has added biometric capability to its microprocessor smart card development platform, M.O.S.T. Toolz™. M.O.S.T. Toolz Biometric Series captures and writes interoperable fingerprint data to a microprocessor smart card, providing additional factors of security that bind the user to the process of mutual authentication for any card application. CardLogix’ contact and contactless M.O.S.T. Cards® developed on this platform are ideal for applications such as ePassports, Citizen IDs, Voting, Law Enforcement, and Healthcare IDs.

With the combination of smart cards and biometrics, an unprecedented level of security is achieved. By combining a person’s unique biometric, such as a fingerprint, with other data stored in a M.O.S.T. Card®, mutual authentication is applied to every transaction. As concerns about fraud and terrorism grow, many businesses and governments have turned to combining smart card and biometric technologies for an ultimate identity solution.

M.O.S.T. Toolz is CardLogix’ flagship development platform and is designed to create the company’s M.O.S.T. Card® C Series Microprocessor smart cards in contact, contactless, and dual interface versions.
