This patent, (US Patent Number 7,502,938 issued March 10th, 2009) protects the privacy of the user and provides enhanced security for the organization performing the user identity authentication. It covers the transmission of information from the point the information is collected at the biometric reader until the data reaches the computer or device that is authenticating the user's identity. Previous BIO-key patents (including 7,454,624, 7,415,605, and 7,117,356) protect BIO-key's security solutions for transmission of private sensitive authentication data from the client device to a central server authentication point, defending enterprise or centralized authentication applications from security breaches. BIO-key's patents also support the use of standards including the Trusted Computing Platforms, which are embraced by security professionals worldwide.

For the majority of systems today, the biometric data is transmitted "in the clear" with no encryption or protection. As the result, the information is susceptible to malicious attacks from hackers for theft or redirection. Securing the information from the point where it is initially captured (the fingerprint reader) to the computer that is using this inform
