1 Z im- ex. Bringing Trust and Mobility to the Digital Age

2 zim-ex. Zim-ex Overview Zim-ex offers authentication solutions based on Biometrics, smart card, and PKI technologies. We focus on 3 main markets: ID Card Projects Access Control (airport, building…) IT Security Which involve mainly: Government, Military, Large Corporations, Banking and Healthcare Zim-ex offers innovative, easy-to-deploy and user- friendly solutions

3 Zim-ex. Zim-ex Overview Private Company founded in 1995 Deployed ID system and PKI for: Government Transportation Police Department Military Public Security Ministry Foreign Affairs Department Airport Bank and Corporation Hospital Factory Leader in Authentication Solution

4 Zim-ex. What brings the need for Authentication ? Terrorism Internal fraud (employees) False/Fake ID card Identity theft Credit card fraud Lack of security on the Internet (B2B & B2C transactions) New security laws and standards Unauthorized access to sensitive corporate information Biometrics revenues are expected to reach $2.6 billion by 2006. Frost & Sullivan

5 Zim-ex. What is PKI ? PKI stands for : Public Key Infrastructure PKI offers security services such as : Confidentiality Protects sensitive information. Integrity Guarantees that information remains accurate, not tampered with or altered. Non-repudiation User cannot refute the transaction (need Biometrics) Authentication Verifies the identity of communicating parties and binds identity to transaction. Access Control Determines who may have access to which resources.

6 Zim-ex. What is PKI ? A PKI will issue certificate to each person A certificate its: Asymmetrical Key-pair (Private Key + Public Key) for encryption Key-pair for signature Users information (name…) Authority who issue the certificate Expiration date Etc. The Key length can varies from 64 to 2048 bits (RSA, DSA…) Each Private Key is unique to each person and must be protected. Normally, its stored on a disk drive and protected by a password, this is not secure enough, so its better to stored it on a smart card and control the access by the fingerprint.

7 Zim-ex. Who are the PKI vendors? The main PKI vendors are : Entrust Verisign They offer cryptography and electronic signature services. Zim-ex integrated and support all of theses vendors Zim-ex knows how to deploy a PKI, and has a proven track record: Central Bank of Canada Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Department of National Defense Several Canadian Banks Baltimore RSA

8 Zim-ex. Biometrics Others type of biometrics Eye Scan (Iris & Retina) Intrusive (People dont like to put their eye in a hole) Expensive to deploy Voice recognition Easy to record and play back Inconsistency of ones voice Facial scan Not for mobile application Hand Geometry Big and cumbersome Expensive to deploy Signature verification Not a mature method

9 Zim-ex. Biometrics The best biometrics technology Fingerprint Universally Recognized Method Used since decade (central database already exist) Perfect for Mobile application Not intrusive to users Inexpensive to deploy Not cumbersome (small reader) Fast reading (less than 1 second) Highly secure (High FAR and low FRR) Very precise imaging (500 DPI) Very liable (no mechanical system)

10 Zim-ex. Available Fingerprint Sensors 2-D reading Optical Sensor Easily Spoofed by an image or a photo of a finger If press too hard, reading is difficult 3-D reading Capacitance Sensors Very Good Quality & Reading-Area Size Electric Field Sensors Low DPI (250) Thermal Sensors (strip) Thomson-CSF (Swiping Problems) Zim-ex product used Capacitance Sensors

11 Zim-ex. SmartPrint Sensor Active Sensor Size : 18.0 x 12.8mm Array Size : 256 x 360 pixels Ultra-Hard Protective Coating Image Resolution : 508 DPI ESD Protection : 8 KV

12 Zim-ex. Fingerprint Minutiae are unique characteristics of individual fingerprints using around 250 bytes of memory space. 8 minutia points make a legal identification according to the FBI and NSA. FAR : False Acceptance Rate (1/100,000) FRR : False Rejection Rate (1/15) Bifurcation End line
