Intellicheck Mobilisa Issued U.S. Patent for Fingerprint Biometric Identity Authentication Process

Impact Will Be Far-Reaching Across Government and Commercial Markets

JERICHO, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#biometricsIntellicheck
, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IDN), a leader in threat identification,
identity authentication, verification and validation technology
solutions, today announced 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.

Dr. William Roof, Intellicheck CEO, remarked, “This patent allows us to
make important strides in the fast growing $25 billion fingerprint
biometric marketplace. 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 IDand 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.
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.”

The patent has sweeping implications because it covers the process at
the heart of the leading biometric fingerprint technology that assures
compliance with The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS-201).
The Federal Information Processing Standard 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. This
standard is often reflected in the products used in the private sector
as well.

Compliance with this standard requires the ability to verify that the
person presenting the identity card is the card’s owner. Fingerprint
biometrics accomplishes this by matching the rightful card owner’s
fingerprints, encrypted and stored on the card’s smart chip, with the
actual fingerprints of the person presenting the card. Once the
presenter is verified as the owner of the card, a query is sent to a
data source ensuring that the card is not suspended, stolen, lost, or
otherwise inactive and may indicate whether the presenter has the
required permissions to enter a specific facility. The instant, real
time comparison and authentication of the live and embedded fingerprint
enhances situational awareness and safety while mitigating threats to
the facility and its personnel. This key technology also means fakes and
forgeries can’t escape comparing and matching embedded and live
fingerprint data.

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’s portfolio of 25 patents includes many pertaining to
identification technology. Its identity technology solutions support
customers in the national defense, law enforcement, retail, hospitality
and financial markets. The Company’s products scan, authenticate and
analyze components of identity documents including driver licenses,
military identification cards and other government forms of
identification containing magnetic stripe, barcode and smart chip
information. The information can be used to provide safety, security and
efficiencies across markets. Unlike competitive products, Intellicheck’s
technology solutions are unique in their ability to provide accurate,
real-time identification authentication and situational awareness on
both mobile and existing fixed infrastructures that is fully regulatory
