Intellicheck granted US patent for identity card biometric authentication process


Intellicheck Mobilisa announced that it has been awarded a U.S. patent that governs 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.

“This patent allows us to make important strides in the fast growing $25 billion fingerprint biometric marketplace,” commented Dr. William Roof, Intellicheck CEO. “Aside from its clear applicability for use with a number of Federal Government identity credentials, this patented technology has the potential to be incorporated into our existing product line including Defense ID and Law ID.”

“Growth of fingerprint biometrics is being fueled by government and commercial market security needs as well as being driven by the ever-increasing dynamics of domestic and international threats” continued Roof. “Fingerprint biometric identity authentication has widespread applications that run the gamut from defense, homeland security and police utilizations to electronic banking and payments and a variety of commercial product and retail usages. The ability of this technology to identify people successfully in an infinite, repeatable, precise manner helps solve critical identification challenges across these markets.”

According to a statement by the company, the patent covers the process at the heart of the leading biometric fingerprint technology that assures compliance with The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS-201). The FIPS-201 is the underlying standard for the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC), the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Credential, the Common Access Card (CAC) and other U.S. Government identification methods.

Dr. Roof said the company’s previously announced purchase of an intellectual property portfolio was driven by what he envisioned for Intellicheck’s product and market future. “We recognized the enormous implications of the patent pending in the portfolio governing the process of fingerprint biometric identification when we made the purchase decision. It was a strategic decision that speaks to our vision and leadership in advancing pioneering identification authentication technology solutions and our commitment to delivering value to our customers and investors. We believe the issuance of this patent firmly positions us in a leading role in the fingerprint biometric identity authentication industry.”

Intellicheck has a portfolio of 25 patents including many related to identification technology.
