Security Biometrics Files Patent for Short Loop Identity Verification

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 6, 2001–Security Biometrics Inc. (OTCBB: SBTI) today announced that it has filed a Method Patent with the U.S. Patent Office for Short Loop Identity Verification (SLIV) which incorporates various biometric solutions, including Dynamic Signature Verification (DSV) technology.

SLIV can verify the identity of the individual by comparing his or her signature to a biometric code embedded on a readable plastic card. The user passes the card through a reader and signs his or her name on a low-cost, proprietary pad that would verify the identity of the person without the necessity of communicating with an offsite database.

Together, SLIV and DSV technology can validate a person’s identity to near absolute certainty via signature analysis, almost instantaneously. This method provides identity verification, where a high degree of security is required specifically in airports, at border crossings and for financial transactions such as credit cards, ATM and e-commerce purchases. It is not the signature itself that is examined, so forgery is impossible, but rather the way it is signed. Pen forces, speeds and directions are compared against data stored on the card to validate the signature.
