fB: Do you see mobility as a key driver for the biometric industry over the next few years?

MorphoTrust: Absolutely. I think more and more biometrics will become accepted and people will begin to see by using their cell phone that their lives are simplified and protected against cybercrime and identity theft; they will be able to self-authenticate transactions using secure credentials on the phone as well as using a biometric to either do one-to-one verification or one-to-many identification.

fB: I couldn’t agree more with you Jim. What will you be highlighting at this year’s Biometric Consortium Conference coming up in Tampa?

MorphoTrust: Well actually we have kind of a unique situation here because in our second year, as I mentioned, we focused on coming together as one of the Morpho companies and working with our sister companies MorphoTrak and MorphoDetection, particularly, so you will see that we will be showing the vision for the future as biometrics moves beyond our current view into the commercial arena and the transactional business of securing the lives of Americans – even beyond biometrics, because MorphoDetection, for example, is one of our sister companies. So you will see the whole end-to-end solution. We’ve been very successful, Peter, as you probably know. Most of us started with identifying bad guys. My particular background with biometrics that I was involved in was really proven in Iraq and Afghanistan. So it is our goal right now to show how biometrics and pure credentialing can converge to simplify the lives of Americans.
