Intelli-Check Inc. has won a contract from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration to provide a statewide identification and document verification system to deter driver license fraud, the company announced today. The company declined to disclose the contract value.
Intelli-Check of Woodbury, N.Y., will deploy a software system capable of checking and verifying identity at all Motor Vehicle Administration offices throughout Maryland. The system aims to thwart people using false out-of-state licenses and other fraudulent documents to obtain Maryland driver's licenses.
Five other states use Intelli-Check's identification verification system.
Intelli-Check offers applications and solutions that assure the authenticity of driver's licenses. The company's patented identification verification software reads, analyses and verifies the encoded data in magnetic strips and bar codes on government-issued identification cards from about 60 jurisdictions in the United States and Canada.
