Pen-One, Inc. Signs Publisher’s Agreement with PatentBooks, Inc.


Colorado Springs, CO – PatentBooks, Inc. has announced a historic partnership with patent holder Pen-One, Inc. Pen-One owns an exemplary portfolio of 26 US patents (and their foreign counterparts) in the Biometric Identification (BIO-ID) arena. Biometric authentication techniques measure the physiological aspects of humans and therefore are widely considered more secure than traditional 4 or 6 digit passcodes or 9-dot grid patterns. A group of these patents specifically include biometric authentication in wireless devices, which can be implemented as both single and multi-level authentication techniques. Several smart phones in the market from leading manufacturers such as, Apple, Samsung, Motorola, Lenovo, Microsoft etc. implement similar technologies. The BIO-ID Portfolio further includes implementation of biometric identification and authentication in wireless payment services. A user can simply verify his/her identity using biometrics on his/her mobile phone and authenticate a payment transaction at a store. Further, certain patents disclose biometric sensors embedded in the stylus of a wireless device used while conducting payment transactions, thereby enhancing the security levels in wireless payment services.
