American Barcode and RFID Announces TETRAGATE, Which Links Biometric Facial Recognition and RFID, Creating Formidable Security Solution
Industry Innovators Unveil System Promising the Tracking of 'Any Asset - One Network'
PHOENIX, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- American Barcode and RFID (AB&R) is pleased to announce the creation of a new technology -- TETRAGATE -- which combines UHF RFID (radio frequency identification) technology inside an employee ID card with biometric facial recognition. TETRAGATE recognizes people approaching from 60 feet away in a fraction of a second, reading up to 60,000 faces in a single second -- without people knowing their images are being scanned. In a world where security and surveillance issues create uneasiness on the best of days, a team of innovative security and technology experts have come together to create what is the most secure access control solution available for tracking human as well as physical assets on the same network.
TETRAGATE's any asset - one network solution combines the technical expertise of global industry leaders, including Symbol Technologies, epcSolutions, Infinova, Fulcrum Biometrics, Zebra Technologies and American Barcode and RFID, to make this a reality.
"Imagine hundreds of people passing through a 'portal' as powerful long-range, unobtrusive cameras capture facial images that are matched against a data archive at a rate of 60,000 images per second," explained Mike Stryczek, President of American Barcode and RFID. "Secondary identification is made as individuals' RFID credentials are read and matched to biometric records. Any exception to the match-ups triggers a security situation, based on business rules in place, focusing on the specific individuals, while others continue on uninterrupted."
All assets, human or physical, can be linked into and managed by a single, formidable database that provides effective and total flexibility of configuration and integration. Global standards for data synchronization, automatic identification, biometric technology and (RFID) ensure that TETRAGATE will scale to meet the specific needs of any organization.
Development on the system began five years ago, after the events of September 11, 2001, when an insurer emphasized the critical importance of knowing who the people are onsite at a particular location and time. What might seem like an uncomplicated task under normal circumstances had its problems. For example, employees and contractors politely holding a door open as other people pass through might not know if one or more of those "others" has the proper ID card or authorization.
The best methods of identifying people are retina scanning, fingerprinting, and face mapping, clearly methods not usually possible with large groups of people moving through entryways at once. Using an Infinova surveillance camera and Fulcrum biometric software, TETRAGATE focuses on the challenge, providing a solution in which even a laptop, iPod, or other RFID tagged assets can be tied to a human asset to match people who are authorized to be on the property at a given time.
Today, corporate, public and personal security, privacy, efficiency and cost effectiveness have all converged as a single issue. TETRAGATE believes it represents a single answer.

WHAT IS RFID?
Govt. Tracking: RFID & NAIS
Consumer privacy expert Katherine Albrecht, joined by activists Pat Showalter and Celeste Bishop in hour two, spoke out against the National Animal Identification System (NAIS), a USDA plan to track farm animals using RFID chips. Showalter and Bishop, who both own animals in a small scale, non-commercial capacity, said the new regulations are very burdensome for small farmers. For instance, the "Premises Identification" part of the plan requires owners to report any movements or visitors of the animals, even in the case of a few chickens and goats. The cost and time for such monitoring is prohibitive and also an invasion of their privacy, they argued.
Technology is being used to clamp down and control food in general, said Albrecht, who compared the NAIS plan to the tracking done with grocery loyalty cards, and the efforts to restrict farmers' rights to seeds. In regards to the NAIS, she hoped that small farmers will refuse to comply with the plan, as she believes it does nothing to make the food supply safer (the stated goal of the program), and it discourages self-sufficiency.
Further, the RFID chips, used to track the animals, and recently introduced in passports, are susceptible to hackers who can infect large databases with malicious viruses, she pointed out. The bigger picture is that the government is seeking a top down control of the populace on a global level, and there is "a move afoot to number everything and everyone," said Albrecht. However, she finds that US citizens are more prone to resisting these efforts than Europeans, and that the NAIS may be the issue that wakes people up.

"You can run, but you may not be able to hide. Not just from Big Brother, but Big Business, writes Katherine Albrecht in her book Spychips, a detailed analysis of how Radio Frequency Identification technology -- RFID for short -- threatens to erode the last vestiges of our privacy."
