NEW YORK, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Crystal Research Associates, LLC announced today that it has issued an Executive Informational Overview(R) (EIO(R)) on Innovative Card Technologies, Inc. www.crystalra.com . The full 44- page report can be found at .
Innovative Card Technologies, Inc. ("InCard" or "the Company") researches, develops, and markets powered cards with one-time passcode (OTP) authentication capabilities for payment, identification, and physical and logical access applications. The Company targets identification and access control in an enterprise environment. InCard has combined Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) access and token technology into a convenient payment card form factor. Besides the enterprise market, InCard also aims to secure online account management at financial institutions. Through its proprietary Power Inlay Technology, InCard brings power-based applications into the card. Its principal product, the ICT DisplayCard, looks like a conventional transaction card and fits into a wallet. It contains an embedded chip that employs an algorithm to produce an OTP on a display screen on the front of the card by pressing a button on the card. A user enters the OTP into a keypad or computer, which sends this number to a remote processing center for authentication via a secure server. This technology is intended to increase security and decrease or potentially prevent online transaction fraud. The technology could also be effective in combating spyware and phishing schemes, since the OTP is only good for a single use. In an enterprise environment, the card's RFID/magstripe physical access capability provides an employee access to their building and the OTP validates their login-all in one thin card. In March 2007, InCard began trading on the NASDAQ market under the symbol "INVC." The Company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.
