Dallas May 10, 2013--Biometric Signature ID (BSI) CEO Jeff Maynard attended the Identity Ecosystem Steering Committee Group (IDESG) meeting this week to take part in discussions about online privacy and its continuous importance in cyberspace. 

The meeting, held in Santa Clara CA, attracted key decision makers and subject matter experts from around the country.  The meeting focused on some of the major hurdles facing companies dealing with authentication of online identities, security and privacy. In conjunction with the meeting the five groups from the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) presented on their progress towards securing online transactions using their trusted frameworks. Biometric Signature ID technology using gesture biometrics was chosen as one of these NSTIC groups with its partners, American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), Microsoft, CA, AT&T and Virginia’s DMV. The NSTIC groups were all awardees from the White House initiative to "administer the development of policy, standards and accreditation policies" for online accountability.

Mr. Maynard has been a leading force introducing software only biometrics for users who log into a digital asset remotely from any device without the need for special hardware.

About Biometric Signature ID

The company has patented a software-only biometric called BioSig-ID.  This is the strongest form of identity verification for logical access with a twist: no additional hardware is required. BioSig-ID employs gesture biometrics, measuring the unique way a user moves their mouse, finger or stylus (speed, direction, length, height, width and angle) to create a password.  BSI is working with a number of the largest institutions in higher education, financial services, online gaming and healthcare, providing identity authentication before users can access exams, bank accounts or personal health information.
