"BionNetrix is beefing up its fingerprint ID security system and plans to add Linux and Solaris support next year."

"The latest version of BioNetrix's Enterprise System for Biometric Security, Which Incorporates support for Entrust as well as the Documentum document management systems, made a splash at The Internet Security Conference (TISC) in Boston this week."

"The software is meant to provide a common platform that extends policy-based authentication beyond passwords into emerging biometric arenas like fingerprint ID, voiceprints, and eyeball scanning."

"BioNetrix intends to follow up version 3.0, which starts shipping this week, with v3.5 by the end of the first quarter, said David Steinberg, VP of sales and business development. The 3.5 edition will come in flavors for Windows, as well as Linux and Sun Solaris. BioNetrix will also start supporting Oracle, in addition to the already supported Microsoft SQL Server, for internal database storage."
