This partnership will enable the delivery of strong authentication solutions to clients, whether they are companies or the government, thanks to the combination of Oberthur Technologies ID-One® PIV smart-card and Zvetco Biometrics Verifi™ fingerprint readers.

ID-One PIV® is the first fully FIPS-201² compliant smart-card for physical and logical access control offering authentication, digital signature, fingerprint Match-On-Card, encryption and post-issuance management capabilities. Some applications like cashless payment can be incorporated making this offer really flexible for a corporate market use.

Zvetco Biometrics’ Verifi™ line of fingerprint readers is widely recognised as among the most accurate and robust fingerprint capture devices available anywhere. The P6000 and P6500 are all listed on the GSA Approved Products List (APL) and have been FBI certified as meeting the rigorous FIPS 201/PIV standard. By embracing industry standards, Zvetco Biometrics can claim compatibility with dozens of industry leading software solutions in key user authentication segments such as single sign-on, PKI³, middleware, Sofware Development Kit’s, programming languages and more.

“Our partnership with Zvetco Biometrics further extends the benefits of ID-One PIV® within companies at several levels: physical and logical access and documents protection through electronic signatures” said Patrick Hearn, VP ID markets - Americas - Identity Business at Oberthur Technologies.
