Press release from: BioLink Solutions

BioLink announces participation, together with m2m group, in the 4th International Conference and Exhibition “Cardex & IT Security’07” that took place on September 19-21, 2007, Expocentr’s Fairgrounds, Krasnaya Presnya, Moscow, Pavilion 5, Hall 2, Booth B532. The event was held under the support of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the RF, Association of Russian Banks and Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry and attracted numerous representatives of banks, financial institutions, IT and telecommunication companies, mobile operators, trade centres, hotel chains, restaurants, social service organisations and state agencies.

The synergy of biometrics and smart card technologies is one of the most popular information security technologies extensively used in financial and payment systems, client loyalty programs, transportation facilities and many other application areas. Once these powerful technologies were isolated preventing making the best of their greatest potential which the joint exposition of BioLink and m2m successfully revealed to Cardex & IT Security visitors.

In particular, m2m group offered a large range of software solutions based on its secure e-transactions processing system, Advanced MAGIX. Leveraging synergies of different fields, m2m group’s solutions address a wide spectrum of electronic transaction applications ranging from payment schemes to e-gov programs. New opportunities of combining biometrics and intellectual cards also cover nationwide projects, such as e-passports, driver’s licenses and the like e-ID documents, as well as solutions for the healthcare and transportation systems.

An integrated solution for transportation security and loyalty programs attracted the visitors’ attention: the client loyalty program MAGIC Loyalty delivered by m2m enhanced with biometric identification features offered by BioLink allows frequent travelers avoiding long queues in airports and making their trip comfortable. Travelers using Magix Loyalty are given smart cards containing the traveler’s biometric identifiers. In an airport, the traveler’s card is read and his/her fingerprints are scanned, thus comparing the biometric templates. Such a quick procedure allows reliably establishing the person’s identity, accelerating the flow of passengers and increasing the overall security level. The proposed solution uses the mobile terminal BioLink St4e with an embedded optical scanner. The terminal is compact, supports GPS, GPRS, BlueTooth and Wi-Fi, reads smart cards and is designed for prompt identification in field conditions (such as in airports, at the customs, etc.).

Another novelty exposed was a biometric optical USB scanner combined with a smart card reader BioLink U-Match 5.0 supporting the most popular smart card formats. Its small size allows embedding it into various devices, while its advanced patented fingerprint matching algorithms provide for the best identification results.

Targeting multiple personnel-related identification areas, BioLink showcased BioTime, its biometric time and attendance monitoring system with access control features to reliably identify employees of a company. As an option, BioTime allows performing identification of employees by proximity cards (for time management) and Mifare and EM-Marine cards (for access control). To scan fingerprints and read access control cards, the biometric terminal BioLink FingerPass IC is used.
