Liska Biometry's Al-Cor ID Solutions Begins Installation of RFID System for Student-Staff Security

Company Enters School Security Market

DOVER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 30, 2007 -- Liska Biometry (OTCBB: LSKA), a leading provider of biometric identification solutions, today announced that its Al-Cor ID Solutions subsidiary won a contract for a pilot project to install and support an RFID system to enhance the security of students and staff in public schools. Installation has begun and when the system is proven to be successful, the contract makes it possible to implement the system in over 50 schools, identifying 100,000 students and faculty. For reasons of enhanced security, Liska will not reveal the location or the name of the board of education involved.

The pilot project consists of enrolling and authenticating over 2,500 students in one school, using handheld PDAs and RFID cards for each student and staff member. Other schools have already expressed interest in implementing the Al-Cor solution once the pilot project has proven successful.

The RFID system to be deployed by Al-Cor ID Solutions will help safeguard students and schools by making it possible for administrators and security personnel to identify every student as well as individuals who are not authorized to be on campus.

Christopher LeClerc, President of Liska, said, "This is our first contract for security products and support services in the educational security arena. We believe that there is a significant demand for this kind of protection in our elementary and secondary schools as well as at colleges and other seats of learning. This project represents a beginning for our company in the education security field, and we believe that our experience there will enable us to expand to many other school districts across the country."

He added, "The system is being installed today and will be operational within a week. At that point, their security personnel will be able to use a handheld device to read the RFID chip on the student ID card, and know immediately who is where they are supposed to be, who isn't, and who represents a security risk to the students and faculty. As part of the contract, we will provide support, which enhances our revenue stream, ensuring the system remains optimally tuned to the needs of the school and the security personnel using it. Moreover, the entire system can be upgraded into the Liska Software suite if administrators deem it useful to do so, bringing further security capabilities to the school district."

LeClerc concluded, "We believe that the school security market will be able to benefit greatly from our biometric solutions for rapid identity authentication. We are already pursuing other school districts, and the outlook is promising."
