Howard County, Maryland Police Department Completes Successful Field Test of ITSI's iSure(TM) Wireless Biometric Authentication System Using Identix Technology

Solution Developed by Integrated Technology Solutions for Secure Transmissions; Has Broad Appeal for Law Enforcement and Homeland Security

COLUMBIA, Md., Dec 18, 2002 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Integrated Technology Solutions, Inc. (ITSI), a full service information technology and systems engineering firm with 8(a) certification, today announced that they have been informed that the Howard County Police Department in Maryland has successfully completed field test of a biometrically-secure wireless reporting system developed by ITSI using the Identix Incorporated (IDNX) BioEngine(R) fingerprint recognition technology. Identix is the world's leading multi- biometrics security technology company.

The system, called iSure(TM) uses biometric encryption to secure and authenticate documents and applications that are being transferred through a wireless network, validating ownership when received. iSure was developed by ITSI under a grant from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and according to ITSI, the system works as follows: Before opening or transmitting a report, the officer provides proof of identity by placing his/her fingerprint on an Identix BioTouch(TM) PC Card that is built-in to the laptop. The report is encrypted using the biometric and sent wirelessly. iSure(TM) uses the biometric key to decrypt the file validating the identity of the sender. Once ownership is validated, the electronic signature is decrypted using the biometric and the electronic signature is attached to the report.
