IBM, partners roll out ID management suite

by Rick Turoczy on October 7, 2004

IBM and partners have developed a new solution to address U.S. government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley that require companies to adopt new security measures. The new system — using IBM’s Tivoli ID management software and products from ActivCard Inc., Bioscrypt Inc., ImageWare Solutions Inc., and VeriSign Inc. — allows clients to link biometric security, such as fingerprint scans, with applications and networks. In a demonstration, IBM employees created a smart card within minutes that could be used with a fingerprint scan for a company employee to gain access to a building and to the employee’s computer. The card can also be used as a traditional swipe card to gain access to a lunchroom meal plan or a company parking lot. The smart card could contain several other applications, including digital certificates.
