Fujitsu PalmSecure® Selected for Display at the 2006 Congressional Internet Caucus Technology Fair

Sunnyvale, CA, February 06, 2006

Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., one of the world’s leading suppliers of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security solutions, today announced that its PalmSecure® biometric authentication device was selected for display at the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee’s (ICAC) 9th Annual Kickoff Reception and Technology Fair, on Feb. 8, in Washington, D.C.

Leveraging more than twenty years of industry leading image recognition and processing expertise, Fujitsu developed palm vein recognition technology to address growing demand for a highly accurate1, user friendly, moderately priced biometric security solution. The device works by capturing an image of the internal palm vein pattern and then, using a propriety algorithm, verifying that image against a pre-registered template for authentication. In addition to providing physical access control, PalmSecure can also be used for data security acting as a gatekeeper for computer and network access.

The Internet Caucus Kickoff Reception and Technology Fair acts as a forum where policymakers, staffers, industry executives and public interest advocates can see hands-on demonstrations of products that are leveraging technology and the internet for the betterment of society. All the products on display illustrate the power and flexibility of the Internet as a medium for communications, commerce and democracy. The Kickoff Reception and Technology Fair will be held on Capitol Hill immediately following the 2nd Annual Internet Caucus State of the Net Conference, to be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Washington, D.C. (http://www.netcaucus.org/conference/).
