Liska Biometry Receives FIPS-201 Approval for Image Capture Platforms

DOVER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2007 -- Liska Biometry (OTCBB: LSKA), a leading provider of biometric identification solutions, today announced that it has recently received FIPS-201 approval from the US Federal Government for its suite of DCS8000 image capture platforms.

This line of portrait capture environments can include everything from Liska's own DCS8000 CCD camera and software SDK to a full portrait capture studio, with infrared lighting, and custom photo booth. The entire environment is capable of creating, correct by construction, FIPS-201 portraits, as well as biometrically compliant, ICAO compliant images. The software is easy to use, and requires no expertise in portrait photography. The platform was designed so that any operator could produce, right the first time, high quality, ICAO compliant portraits each time.

Brian Walsh, Vice President of Global Solutions for Liska, stated, "This approval serves to illustrate the broad appeal of Liska's image capture environments. The same technology that's been approved by the Federal Government for use in producing FIPS-201 credentials has been integrated into numerous passport and driver's license programs throughout the world. We are looking forward to supporting all government agencies with our FIPS-201 offerings."

Christopher LeClerc, President of Liska, said, "The FIPS-201 approval is a requirement for bidding on many of the government's ID and credential projects. Approved companies like Liska are in a position to win contracts for these projects that others cannot. We believe that this approval will not only give us access to federal projects but also to state and local government contracts. In addition to positioning Liska to be a major provider of these solutions to government agencies, having this approval also enhances Liska's credibility among commercial customers."

Federal Information Processing Standard 201, entitled Personal Identity Verification of Federal Employees and Contractors, was developed to satisfy the requirements of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, which mandates a new, more secure government-wide standard for all identity credentials issued by the Federal Government to its employees and contractors.
