LS-Crypto (MIL Grade Option)
Fingerprint identification and other text information collected and stored by Secure Outcomes products are encrypted to provide data security in the event of theft or loss of a system.
There are two levels of encipherment:
Standard Encryption, which ships as default at no extra cost with each Secure Outcomes system is of export quality according to the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security ("BIS"). BIS has assigned export ECCN classification 3A981 to this product, which means that Secure Outcomes products with this encryption can be shipped to any NATO country without special specific export licensing and to other countries with such licensing. This data blurring protection partially depends on a special TEA-based crypto hardware device provided by the German company SG-Lock and partially on embedded software.
LS-Crypto Encryption, Secure Outcomes' custom "military-grade" encipherment package, is designed for military and government sites that require higher security of all scanned fingerprint and textual data.
LS-Crypto implements the fingerprint crypto protocol detailed in the Secure Outcomes issued patent #8,331,775 and depends on AES-256, SHA-256, and a Blum-Blum-Shub random number generator seeded by well defined system entropy. An up to 128-character passphrase is used as key precursor.
LS-Crypto is a separately priced option and requires special BIS licensing for export.
