29 Mar 2019
BIO-key International, Inc., incorporated on July 28, 2004, develops and markets fingerprint biometric identification and identity verification technologies, cryptographic authentication-transaction security technologies, as well as related identity management and credentialing software solutions. The Company is also engaged in developing automated, finger identification technology that supplements or compliments other methods of identification and verification, such as personal inspection identification, passwords, tokens, smart cards, identity cards, public key infrastructure (PKI), credit card, passports, driver's licenses, one-time password (OTP) or other form of possession or knowledge-based credentialing.
Finger-based Biometric Identification and Personal Identity Verification
The Company offers finger-based biometric identification and personal identity verification, as well as authentication-transaction security. Stand-alone, or in partnerships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), integrators, and solution providers, the Company provides biometric security solutions to private and public sector customers. Its solutions identify individuals and verify, or confirm, their identity before granting access to, among other things, corporate resources, subscribed data and services, Web portals, applications, physical locations or assets. The Company also develops and distributes hardware components, through its strategic relationship with China Goldjoy Group (CGG) that are used in conjunction with its software. Additionally, the Company sells third-party hardware components with its software in various configurations required by its customers. Its products are interoperable with various fingerprint reader and hardware manufacturers, enabling application developers, value added resellers (VARs) and channel partners to integrate its fingerprint biometrics into their application. The Company's technology supports interoperability on over 40 different fingerprint readers. The technology is also interoperable across Windows and Linux, as well as Apple iPhone Operating System (iOS) and Android mobile operating systems.
The Company utilizes finger identification algorithm-Vector Segment Technology (VST) for developing its products. VST is available as a low level software development kit (SDK) for incorporation into any application architecture to increase security. VST runs on Windows and Linux, as well as within WEB-key on iOS and Android systems. Intelligent Image Indexing is a biometric identification solution that offers both, large-scale one-to-many user identification. This solution enables customers to perform false alias and fast entry checks, including preventing fraudulent access to systems and privileges. The Company provides support for biometric application programming interface (BioAPI) for a compliant interface to applications using biometrics for verification and identification. The Company's Single Sign On (SSO) is a suite of solutions for integration with CA Technologies SiteMinder, Oracle's Fusion Middleware SSO, IBM Tivoli Access Manager and other solutions, utilizing the power and security of WEB-key. ID Director is designed to add a level of security and convenience to the transaction level of any application.
Authentication Transaction Security
The Company's authentication-transaction security technology, WEB-key, provides the ability to conduct identification and identity verification transactions in potentially insecure environments, including the World Wide Web or in off-site cloud environments. WEB-key makes cloud-based biometric user-authentication viable and eliminates technology constraints on online service providers, who are otherwise held dependent on handset provider hardware and software platform decisions. WEB-key is supported by both Windows and Linux operating systems. Clients are available on Windows, iOS and Android operating systems.
The Company competes with 3M, NEC and MorphoTrak.
