Biometric Stock Alert: Nxt-ID Inc. (OTCQB:NXTD) Files Patent for Digital Wallet Technology, the Wocket(TM)

SHELTON, CT - October 21, 2013 (Investorideas.com biometrics/ defense stocks newswire) NXT-ID Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, announced today that it has submitted a patent application for its unique digital wallet technology. As a follow up to U.S. provisional patent application No. 61/710,826, NXT-ID has filed patent application 14/049175 for a:

METHOD FOR REPLACING TRADITIONAL PAYMENT AND IDENTITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL SECURITY AND A DEVICE IMPLEMENTING SAID METHOD.
This patent forms the basis for NXT-ID's widely anticipated next generation payment and identity product -- the Wocket™.
"Rather than attempting to replace the wallet, as companies such as Google and Isis (founded by AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless) are doing by putting contactless payment capability on smartphones, our method brings the wallet into the 21st century," said Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, Inc.
"We offer an alternative solution to those who do not wish to give up their wallet and market studies show that represents a significant portion of the population. We offer the modern wallet an electronic vault that is actually part of the wallet, securely protecting private information accessible only by the user via biometric enabled multi-factor authentication. What is unique about this invention is that it secures private information found within a typical wallet, such as credit cards, debit cards, identification information, medical information and records and makes this private information available to owners via an interface made so simple that anyone can use it as they would use their wallet today."
The Wocket™ requires unique biometrically enabled multi-factor authentication to ensure only owners and their private information can be copied into or out from the secure vault wallet device and on to the dynamically programmable magnetic stripe NXTCard. Authenticated users may then select payment information, via touch display or voice command and use the NXTCard as they would any other magnetic stripe credit or debit card.
There is an added advantage in that the NXTCard replaces multiple cards that are currently kept in the wallet with a single secure card.
"This patent is the first of many we plan to submit regarding our wearable identity technologies that bring full control and protection of private data to authenticated owners of the data," said David Tunnell CTO of NXT-ID. "In the coming months, we plan to increase our portfolio of intellectual property with other patents that further promote protection of private data with innovative, easy to use mobile and wearable technologies that conform to how users naturally use devices today."

Biometric Stock Alert: Nxt-ID Inc. (OTCQB:NXTD) Mobile-Bio Technology Holds the Key to Mobile Commerce

BOSTON, MA - October 15, 2013 (Investorideas.com biometrics/ defense stocks newswire) SoundView Technology Group: New report highlights an emerging technology company, NXT-ID Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), as a provider of "Mobile-Bio" technology to enable mobile commerce industry-wide.

The lack of robust security is one of the chief obstacles holding this market back. Technology leaders like Apple have been making acquisitions (like AuthenTec for $350M in July of 2012) and filing patents to attempt to provide some of these features on the iPhone.
Passwords have become the joke of the information security industry since they offer no real protection in most cases. Biometric techniques must incorporate multiple factors to be secure and easy to use. Combinations of fingerprint, facial recognition, voice and big data analysis will be the essence of future secure consumer systems, for mobile in particular.
NXT-ID (NXTD) had developed a platform of "Mobile-Bio" technologies the address the needs of this market which include:
  1. Mobile-Bio FaceMatchTM - 2D, 3D and pseudo-3D methods to perform facial recognition.
  2. The WocketTM - a new class of biometrically secure mobile devices designed to replace the traditional wallet.
  3. Mobile-Bio SensorTM - a simple, web-enabled, biometric-enabled external device that is used for local authentication and remote authentication with the BioCloud and/or remote servers.
  4. VoiceMatchTM - a unique biometric-enabled method to add multi-factor biometric identifiers (both speech and speaker recognition) to Dynamic Pairing Codes using a simple low-power embedded processor on an external device.
  5. Mobile BioCloudTM - a cloud-based end-point (authentication service) to authenticate any "end-point" along a communication path, including external biosensors.
According to the authors of this report, Stephen Waite and Kris Tuttle, "NXT-ID biometric security products target a broad market opportunity space that includes m-commerce, enterprise, law enforcement, defense and Homeland Security."
NXT-ID is an early stage technology company going after a large market. Based on initial traction and a conservative intrinsic valuation (IV) model show a fair value of $10.90/share we see the company continuing to benefit from intensive investor attention to this space.

New York, NY, Point Roberts, WA - October 10, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors updates its technology stocks directory with a list of 3-D Printer Stocks and biometric stocks.

The biometrics sector continues to heat up following news of a $225 acquisition by Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA).
Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA) announced it signed a Definitive Agreement to acquire Validity Sensors, Inc., a leading provider of biometric fingerprint authentication solutions for smartphones, tablets and notebook PCs. With the acquisition of Validity, Synaptics expects to gain access to the fast growing biometrics market, significantly expanding its market opportunity and underscoring the company's commitment to making smart devices easier to use.
Synaptics will pay approximately $92.5 million in stock and cash at the closing plus potential performance payments over a multi-year period for total potential consideration of up to $255.0 million.
Biometrics and fingerprint sensing is poised for explosive growth as OEMs look to differentiate their products, and consumers demand greater security with seamless ease-of-use. Synaptics believes the acquisition of Validity positions the company at the forefront of this exponential growth opportunity and allows the company to strengthen its portfolio of touch-based technologies with the diversification into fingerprint-sensing capabilities.
"Biometrics has long been of interest to Synaptics as it complements our existing touch-based solutions and offers an exciting new way to interact with devices," said Rick Bergman, President and CEO, Synaptics. "We are thrilled to be adding the world class Validity team to the Synaptics family.

Inside the Biometrics Sector, Q&A Strategy and Market News For NXT-ID (NXTD), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Facebook (FB)

Coral Springs, Florida - October 10, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Entertainment and financial news alert – Mr. Verdi adds, "I have been a successful business man and I have attached big names to my movies in the past, from actors to producers and musical artists like Paul McDonald from American Idol fame –but I still get excited about game changing technology."

Market news updates, and due diligence strategies on today's leaders in the Technology sector: NXT-ID (OTCQB: NXTD), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: APPL), Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE: HPQ) and Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB).
FN Media Group (FNM) is pleased to publish a follow up interview with Rhode Island investor, business man and award winning movie producer Chad A. Verdi. In October 2011, Mr. Verdi made a $ 1 Million offer for the Amanda Knox movie rights through his production company, Verdi Productions. Following his due diligence he formally withdrew his offer. Mr. Verdi discusses his due diligence process for investing in both film and the technology sector. Mr. Verdi focus is on biometrics, which is forecasted to grow to a sustainable market of greater than $10 Billion annually by the year 2017.
Q: FNM
Mr. Verdi, reading previous news from your company, you had already secured financing for the Untitled Knox Project, if a deal had been reached. Your s plans were to make a seven-figure pay-or-play offer to Natalie Portman to play Amanda. You then withdrew the official offer of One Million Dollars (U.S. $1,000,000) for Amanda Knox's life rights stating you felt there was more to the story and Amanda would be forced back to Italy and retried. Now that you see all this coming to fruition, can you explain your reasons and due diligence process?
A: Chad A. Verdi
As I said when I formally withdrew the offer, "after reviewing all the information we had involving the Knox case, we had decided it was not the inspirational feel good story that VP was looking for and we withdrew our offer. “ . I had a team of about twenty students doing the background and due diligence and the story did not pass our scrutiny.
Q: FNM
In our previous interview you discussed your recent investment in NXT- ID Inc (NXTD), a company with m-commerce mobile biometric voice recognition technology. Now that you are seeing all the buzz around Apple's (AAPL) Touch ID fingerprint technology and the news that Android (GOOG) will be introducing biometrics in the next six months, do you feel that your investment due diligence, investing in NXT- ID ahead of all this news validates your due diligence ?
A: Chad A. Verdi
Yes I do. I think the company is two years ahead of everyone else and was launched as a public company at the right time in the right sector. I think when the technology is introduced to the media, analyst and investors- they will be as excited and convinced as I am.
Q: FNM
Some big deals are happening in the facial recognition space as well - something NXT- ID has entered with its subsidiary 3D-ID LLC. I understand the company has 22 patents. With companies like Facebook (FB) talking about facial recognition and Hewlett-Packard Company (HPQ) just announcing a huge deal with the Department of Homeland Security for biometrics that included both facial and voice recognition - how do you biometrics technology rolling out ?
A: Chad A. Verdi
I agree with most of what the leading analysts are saying - Apple's implementation is the just the beginning and they making biometrics mainstream. And that is why I invested in and then became the largest shareholder in NXT-ID. Like I stated prior to you, I own Apple Yahoo etc, I believe NXT-ID can become what those companies are today.
Q: FNM
Recently it was stated you are working with two Oscar winning producers Martin Scorsese and Bruce Cohen on your next project, Bleed for This, the inspirational true story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza.
A: Chad A. Verdi
Yes, that is very, very cool and I don't sleep at night. Like Bleed for This, NXT-ID keeps me up all night, they are both game changers and both have huge potential The one difference I feel is that NXT-ID products will one day be used by most if not all humans, it can be that big,

Both Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company are fully funded film production companies, covering all aspects of filmmaking from conception of script through postproduction. http://www.woodhavenfilms.com/ , http://www.verdifilms.com/

NXT-ID is creating a new paradigm in information security."
He also added, "At the heart of NXT-ID's new paradigm is real-time, dynamic, multi-factor biometric authorization that is user friendly and extremely difficult to hack, thus providing greater security beyond conventional security systems. This system combines multiple attributes that are unique to each user such as face, voice, fingerprint, and retina with multiple attributes that are unique to other identifiable features, such as devices and accounts, to form an impenetrable security solution. By introducing this new paradigm, NXT-ID hopes to shatter the conventional User/Password structure that currently exists."
"The market opportunity for NXT-ID's biometric security products is significant. The Wocket™ alone has a target market of nearly $1B in the U.S. The opportunity will expand across multiple segments, given that the company's products target consumers, enterprise and government agencies in the U.S. and overseas."
NXT-ID's expertise in biometrics, along with its growing patent portfolio of cutting edge technology, gives the company a solid foundation upon which to make the new security paradigm a reality in the marketplace. The product roadmap is ambitious with several new security products scheduled for release in the months ahead, all of which are based off of the company's Mobile-Bio™ platform. NXT-ID is using its Mobile-Bio™ platform to commercialize a range of next generation security products targeted at a range of applications that extends across multiple segments. These products include:
1. The Wocket™ - a new class of biometrically secure mobile devices designed to bring the traditional wallet into the 21st century by providing the functionality of a wallet and incorporating a touch screen and a single dynamically programmable card to use for credit, debit and any other magnetic stripe functions.
2. Mobile-Bio FaceMatch™ - 2D, 3D and pseudo 3D methods to perform facial recognition. Additionally, NXT-ID is seeking to incorporate its patent pending "FacePassword" as a method to add multi-factor face and face movement to Dynamic Pairing Codes using simple low-power embedded processor on an external device (biosensor), such as a Wocket™, that then connects to other end-points using Dynamic Pairing Codes.
3. Mobile-Bio Sensor™ - a simple, web-enabled, biometric-enabled external device that is used for local authentication and remote authentication with the BioCloud™ and/or remote servers.
4. VoiceMatch™ - a unique biometric-enabled method to add multi-factor biometric identifiers (both speech and speaker recognition) to Dynamic Pairing Codes using simple low-power embedded processor on an external device (e.g., BioSensor), such as the Wocket™, that then connects to other end-points using NXT-ID's Dynamic Pairing Codes.
5. Mobile BioCloud™ - a cloud-based end-point (authentication service) to authenticate any "end-point" along a communication path, such as external biosensors such as the Wocket™ and/or other PCs or servers along the path. A dynamic pairing code is sent to the BioCloud™ where it is combined with other "identifiers" (such as device serial number, master key, wallet key, dynamic pairing keys, Firmware key) dynamically (per NXT-ID's proprietary algorithm that selects which identifiers are used when) to issue a response, which is the compared by each end-point.
NXT-ID's Mobile-Bio™ platform is diverse and contains a host of proprietary, next generation security technologies. The diversity of the platform is a key asset. It reflects the experience and depth of the company's management and software developers in biometric technology. The platform enables NXT-ID to produce a range of innovative products incorporating proprietary methods targeted at different applications and market segments that includes m-commerce, enterprise, law enforcement, defense and Homeland Security.
NXT-ID plans to develop and foster market niches targeted at consumers and small business while continuing to serve the law enforcement and defense markets.
The Company is currently testing its 3D FaceMatch system for law enforcement with Palm Bay Police in Florida and is ruggedizing the system for real world conditions. This work is expected to be completed by the end of November 2013 and the 3D facial recognition system is anticipated to be launched for sale to law enforcement and corporations desiring secure access control in December 2013. The Company has hired an in-house sales representative to facilitate demonstrations and sales.
The Wocket development is proceeding well and several key modules have been completed. A manufacturing prototype is anticipated to be completed by December 2013 and sales of this product are expected to commence in the first quarter of 2014. The Company is taking a segmented approach to this very large consumer market and targeting 3 niche markets initially;
a) Students at colleges and universities
b) Organizations that offer members identity protection services, and
c) Banks that wish to offer premier customers a novel, advanced, secure method of payment

Facial Recognition Stocks to Watch: (FB), (HPQ), (NXTD), (SNE), (YHOO)

New York, NY - October 4, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors including biometric and security stocks issues a snapshot for facial recognition stocks.

Biometric technology has become a hot topic in the headlines, from mobile phone security with Apple (AAPL) to analysts predicting biometrics will become mainstream technology in the future. Leading tech companies are introducing fingerprint, facial recognition and voice recognition technology in everything from social media to mobile and gaming.
According to a report on Nextgov.com Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE :HPQ) has just been awarded a $102.8 million contract to upgrade Homeland Security Department employee identification cards with features that accommodate iris and facial recognition, according to federal funding databases.

In late August NXT-ID, Inc (NXTD:OTCQB) a biometrics company focused on the growing m-commerce market announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, 3D-ID, LLC commenced a pilot program with the Palm Bay, FL Police Department to evaluate its 3D FaceMatch biometric facial recognition identification systems.
The identification management systems leverage unique and patented FaceMatch™ 3D technology that precisely senses shape at up to a million points on a face without using lasers or projected patterns. This individually unique shape information is compressed into a small 3D biometric template containing a complete 3D shape signature of that individual face. This shape signature is rapidly compared to other templates in a database. Unlike 2D recognition methods where performance is highly variable depending on scene lighting, head pose, facial expression, eyewear, facial hair and cosmetics, FaceMatch™ templates and performance remain invariant over an extremely wide range of imaging variables. This enables reliable, scalable, and convenient face recognition solutions.
The system is being used at Palm Bay to enroll inmates into local detention centers, creating a 3- dimensional database that can be used in the future to potentially identify persons of interest. Inmates that are released will also have their identities verified through 3D facial recognition to prevent the inadvertent release of the wrong individual.
Facebook ( FB) has caused a lot of controversy and buzz in the social media sector as they talk about introducing a facial recognition technology to match faces in photos with public profile features. Facebook acquired a Face.com in 2012 as part of its roll out strategy. ‘ Yahoo ( YHOO ) also recently announced its acquisition of IQ Engines, a start-up company in face and image recognition technologies to use for Flickr.
And now facial recognition and biometrics are coming to a game near you.
According to a recent article Sony (SNE) is incorporating multiple forms of biometrics into the PS4. “With the use of the PS4 Eye Camera, Sony's next-gen console will now have its own champion against the Kinect. According to Joystiq, the PS4 Eye Camera will allow voice and face recognition, so you can easily load up games, navigate the OS, and give in-game commands. This feature will immediately be made available for Knack.”
http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/507521/20130920/ps4-ps3-games-streaming-eye-camera-kinect.htm
So as biometrics enters all phases of every day life, it creates new levels of security and controversy over privacy issues. There is game changing technology to pay attention to for investors.

Biometrics Analysts and Experts from Goode Intelligence, Biometrics Institute and NXT-ID, Inc (OTCQB: NXTD) Discuss Recent Hacking of Apple's (AAPL) Touch ID Fingerprint Technology and the Future of Biometrics

Point Roberts, WA, NEW YORK, NY - October 2, 2013 (Investorideas.com biometrics/ defense stocks newswire) Mobile Security Biometrics Alert: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investor research in leading sectors, issues a follow up to its recent article , Analysts and Industry Participants Share Insight Into the Future of Mobile Security and Biometrics, following the recent reports of Apple's Touch ID Fingerprint Technology being attacked by professional hackers. Alan Goode, Managing Director of GoodeIntelligence.com, Isabelle Moeller, Chief Executive at Biometrics Institute and Mr. Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc (OTCQB:NXTD) share insight on the security of Apple's (AAPL) Touch ID and the future trends in biometrics.

Apple bought its technology for $365 million from AuthenTec a year ago and in spite of hacking headlines, most analyst agree the biometric technology is very safe and secure for most users and the wave of biometric technology implementation will continue.
Alan Goode, Managing Director of GoodeIntelligence.com, who has been predicting the implementation of biometrics in smartphones for some time said "There is no doubting that Apple's Touch ID can be fooled into accepting fake (lifted) prints but it does take a relatively high level of forensic and material sciences skills which will be outside the skills of most people. There is always a trade-off between security and convenience and I feel that for the one-touch capability of unlocking a mobile device, Touch ID does a very good job. Apple may need to review security measures if it wants to extend the functionality of Touch ID to enterprise and commercial applications. I always maintain that two or multi-factor authentication is required to validate identity for high risk tasks such as making a financial payment. Apple may want to include a second or third factor for this type of function."
Mr. Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc. http://www.nxt-id.com/, who has over 30 years of executive, operational and financial experience with technology companies in the United States, Europe and the Far East agrees with Mr. Goode saying, " there are varying degrees of security that are effective depending on the application. Password hacking can be done anonymously from a long distance, whereas hacking fingerprints requires a more complex personal attack. It requires more effort, equipment and personal access to the actual person; and because it's so much more complex the payoff has to be worth the effort. Apple should be applauded for bringing innovative biometric technology to the consumer. "
He also went on to say that using multimodal identification at the same time, such as password and fingerprint recognition creates a higher level of security.
His company is launching its innovative MobileBio™ suite of biometric solutions, starting with the Wocket™ an advanced secure electronic wallet that will use voice biometrics, later this year.
His company's subsidiary, 3D-ID LLC deploys 3D facial biometric identification and has 22 licensed patents.
Isabelle Moeller, Chief Executive at Biometrics Institute released the following news earlier today addressing the iPhone fingerprint technology attack. They noted the group claiming success, known as the Chaos Computer Club from Germany has been involved in similar biometric attacks.
"The BVAEG - a subcommittee of the independent Biometrics Institute - consists of many of the most experienced experts in this area from around the world," says Isabelle Moeller, Chief Executive of the Biometrics Institute, "the BVAEG mission is to raise awareness of the need for vulnerability detection to be included with biometric devices, to promote standards, enhance privacy protection, performance measures and testing, and to help facilitate the dissemination of new research or findings in this area."
Their press release also quoted Tsutomu Matsumoto from Yokohama National University, a member of BVAEG, as saying "the current attack requires the lifting and processing of a high quality latent fingerprint at high resolution in order to make a successful spoof. These factors should be considered when assessing this attack's impact under realistic usage scenarios."
The Biometrics Institute encourages manufacturers of equipment that include biometrics sensors to be proactive in adopting spoof detection technology to maximise the chance of successfully rejecting a biometric spoof, and also recommends government agencies and top-level decision makers be aware of the need for appropriate biometric vulnerability testing and certification as they consider both the risk and the convenience of the security mechanism(s).
In terms of the future most analyst see biometrics going mainstream and that Apple's Touch ID has paved the way. Gino Pereira sees a future down the road where we will be wearing a device that will monitor us biometrically to provide access to everything we need.
