BIO-key(R) International and Oracle Showcase Fingerprint Identification Fusion Middleware Solution

BIO-key(R) International and Oracle Showcase Fingerprint Identification Fusion Middleware Solution

WALL, N.J., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: BKYI) , a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety and Oracle Corporation today announced the launch of ID Director for Fusion Middleware(TM). This application represents the successful integration of the BIO-key biometric fingerprint identification software into Oracle's Identity Management platform.

Utilizing BIO-key's patented WEB-key(R) technology, ID Director for Fusion Middleware requires only the "touch of a finger" to gain access into any new or existing application protected by Oracle's Identity Management Suite. BIO- key's solution replaces less secure and cumbersome passwords and tokens with the security and convenience of biometrics. The introduction further enhances Oracle's market-leading security infrastructure and adds an even higher level of security and convenience to Oracle's complete identity and SOA management offerings.

In an effort to revolutionize and accelerate the finger biometrics market BIO-key also announced today that it is offering its Web-key client software as well as the Software Development Kit at "no charge" to Oracle Application providers, removing the obstacle of cost to companies looking to integrate biometric access. Oracle's partners and customers alike can immediately take advantage of this breakthrough to secure applications protected by Oracle Identity Management Platforms including user access to Single Sign On (SSO) and Web and application identity management provisioning applications. BIO-key and Oracle will be demonstrating this capability at the Oracle Open World 2006, the world's largest event dedicated to helping enterprises understand and harness the power of information, being held from October 22-26 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

This easily integrated solution is a cost effective, secure platform for fingerprint authentication across open networks. Within Oracle's product suite, WEB-key operates on Oracle Application Servers 9i and 10g and Oracle Database 10g. This unique solution allows users to positively identify themselves using either only their finger, or to augment another form of identification to comply with two factor identification protocols. It also provides a simple way for users to add True User Identification(TM) to any critical transaction enabling companies to comply with government regulations and legislation such as HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, and the Electronic Signatures Act.

"Addressing the password fatigue dilemma faced by users and the need for companies to ensure that they have implemented strong authentication measures to secure their data, this major step forward in the BIO-key and Oracle partnership provides Oracle customers with added security and improved convenience", said Mike DePasquale, CEO of BIO-key International. "By offering our client software and Software Development Kit at 'no cost', solution providers and customers now have a cost effective, secure and convenient alternative to gain access into any new or existing application protected by Oracle's Identity Management Suite."
