L-1 Identity Solutions Launches ID-Suite, Customized Identity and Document Verification Solutions for Border Management, Law Enforcement and Driver's License Markets

    ID-Suite Includes New and Enhanced Document Readers, Software and
Document Databases

    STAMFORD, CONN., October 1 /CNW/ - L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc.
(NYSE:  ID), a leading provider of identity solutions and services, today
introduced ID Suite, a new and enhanced set of hardware and software packaged
into customized solution sets to meet specific identity challenges in
international border management, law enforcement and U.S. driver's license
applications. The suite of hardware and software solutions offer a better and
more efficient means of verifying identity documents, tracking issuance and
usage of identity documents. It also delivers improved business operation
efficiencies by automating document authentication, data capture, document
scanning, data management, workflow processing, auditing and reporting.

    "Agencies are struggling to find a balance between issuing secure
identity documents and following processes that comply with federal
legislation and standards, while also managing their businesses efficiently
and delivering strong customer service," said Leo Sullivan, President of the
Secure Credentialing division of L-1 Identity Solutions. "ID-Suite is designed
to help our customers meet this challenge, offering a new standard for secure,
accurate and efficient document authentication, scanning and identity data

    ID-Suite is built on L-1's core document authentication technology,
currently deployed in more than 4,000 installations worldwide. ID-Suite
features L-1's new document reader, the J1000. The device is the first of
kind, smaller in size and weight and designed specifically for small
documents, such as drivers' licenses, making it well suited for law
enforcement use in police cars or at police stations. Additional hardware
components include new versions of the fifth generation B5000 and B5000-SC
(Smart Chip) document scanners that read RFID embedded e-passports and secure
drivers licenses. Enhancements include increased speed, enhanced accuracy,
improved ergonomics and usability, and automatic document detection all in a
smaller and lighter weight reader, making it ideal for border management

    A set of software applications that run congruently with the hardware
devices is also included. Add-on modules such as Global ID, ID-License,
ID-Passport, and ID Reference can be purchased to further extend the document
authentication capabilities of each solution.

    Ideal for Law Enforcement, Border Management and Driver's License

    ID-Suite includes advanced document authentication hardware and software
that provides leading-edge authentication, accuracy, speed and biometric
integration capabilities for all markets. Further, the document authentication
hardware offerings are customized to handle the specific need of select
markets. This includes workflow and delegation of adjudication authority
within the driver's license market; quick and accurate processing of all
international identity documents, including those with smart chips, within the
border management market; and mobility and access to information within the
law enforcement market.

    ID Suite is ideal for use in law enforcement, offering a small, compact
and light weight portable unit that can run from a laptop computer without
requiring stand-alone power. It also is designed for ID1 size documents,
eliminating unnecessary functionality and reducing space requirements.

    "L-1's J1000 document authentication device has proven to be an extremely
robust solution for rapid ID collection and authentication," said Scott
McCallum of the Pinellas County Sherriff's Department. "The ease of use and
scalability of the J1000 unit allows for simple deployment in a variety of
environments to include mobile applications."

    Twenty one U.S. States currently use L-1's secure credentialing
solutions. ID Suite offers the most complete and advanced drivers' license/ID
template database for adjudication of identity credentials using automated
data and image analysis. The solution includes image and demographic identity
data capture for issuance processing, auditing and data mining, as well as a
controlled process for the capture, scanning, vetting, storage, reporting and
analysis of identity data. ID Suite seamlessly integrates within existing data
infrastructures and offers the flexibility to add multiple biometrics.

    Deployed in over 20 countries' border crossings today, L-1 border
management applications provide enhanced border security, faster passenger
processing and better customer service. ID Suite offers a smaller and lighter
e-passport reader specifically designed for border control with enhanced RFID
functionality for faster and more accurate reads of both RFID and non-RFID
passports, improved usability and document handling to support new e-passports
for global identity verification at all international borders and advanced
e-passport capabilities, such as automatic document detection and an expanded
passport document database. ID Suite can be easily integrated with additional
security layers based on L-1 leading multi-biometric capabilities.
