SAFLINK Adds Match-On-Card Capability to jForte Smart Card

Wednesday 12 January 2005 17:24 CET | News

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

One of the advantages of the jForte Smart Card technology is that it can be used as a portable authentication token, where an individuals 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 DoDs Common Access Card. 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 individuals privacy.
