BIO-key will be making the trip to Washington, DC, for this year’s Connect:ID Identity Conference and Exhibition. The event is scheduled to run from October 5-6 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
BIO-key will be present as both a sponsor and an exhibitor, and will be setting up shop at booth 441 on the show floor. The company will be showcasing and demoing a number of different products, including its new line of FIDO security keys and its MobilePOS Pro payment terminal in addition to a full collection of fingerprint sensors.
The FIDO-keys debuted in September, and support the FIDO2 and FIDO U2F protocols with several different USB form factors. The handheld MobilePOS Pro, on the other hand, was unveiled in August, and comes with a built-in fingerprint sensor and a biometric camera to facilitate secure payments at the point of sale.
The company’s lineup of fingerprint scanners includes the new EcoID II, as well as an FBI-certified FAP 50 scanner with a 10-print utility. The EcoID II is a USB scanner that is fully compatible with the Windows Hello and Windows Hello for Business platforms. Finally, BIO-key will also be showing off several different applications of Identity-Bound Biometrics, covering everything from Multi-factor Authentication and workforce Single Sign-On solutions to the company’s new contactless PalmPositive authentication offering.
“We welcome this opportunity to participate in Connect:ID,” said BIO-key Chairman and CEO Michael DePasquale. “We’re excited to attend and sponsor this event at such a critical time when we need to reimagine identity and come together to discuss and understand how we can use technology to confirm human identity in our physical and digital worlds.”
FindBiometrics will be on site to bring you live coverage of Connect:ID 2021 from the exhibition floor. The theme for the event is Identity: Reimagined. BIO-key’s DePasquale will be involved in a keynote IBIA Plenary Session on October 6, while BIO-key CLO and Strategy and Compliance SVP Jim Sullivan will participate in multiple sessions over the course of the two days.
