Subtitle: Standardized credential ensures consistency of permits issued across
Colorado’s 64 counties

DENVER, Colorado, March 20, 2012 (euro adhoc) - Multicard, a leading supplier of
credential solutions, identity management and system integration services and a
business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE: Frankfurt: INV), announced
today that it has developed and implemented a standardized "concealed carry"
handgun permit for Colorado´s county sheriffs´ association. For this latest
secure identification project for public safety organizations, Multicard has
designed and produced a secure, pre-printed identification card to be used
statewide. 

Multicard was awarded the contract by the County Sheriffs of Colorado
Association, an organization that advocates for the Office of the Sheriff across
the state. "Carrying a concealed weapon" (CCW) permits are issued through the
local sheriff´s office in each of Colorado´s 64 counties. While the application
process is the same statewide, prior to this project there was no unified
standard for the permit´s design or production. Steve Benitez, Vice President of
Sales for Multicard explained, "Without a state standard, it was difficult for
law enforcement to verify a valid permit if issued from other counties. This
also left room for forgery and fraud. Our goal was to develop and implement a
secure statewide standard for the permit so that all sheriffs´ offices will be
issuing the same document. The permit design needed to address previously
established requirements including the permit holder´s photograph and other
identifying information, as well as the signature of the sheriff issuing the
permit."

The county sheriffs´ organization contracted with Multicard to develop the
permit design, securely produce the pre-printed card templates, and consult on
implementation. A design template incorporating all required information and
additional security features was created and pre-printed on standard CR80 size
PVC card stock, which is similar to a credit card in size and thickness. The
pre-printed card stock was then distributed to the counties for issuance.
Additionally Multicard is supplying the fully compatible ID systems needed to
print the final permit, which include a configured production software module
and printer. 

"The CCW permit project was an important initiative and Multicard has fulfilled
our expectations for a standard, easily recognizable credential statewide. We
are very pleased with the results and with the speed and professionalism of
Multicard´s service in designing and implementing this solution for the State of
Colorado. Tamper-proof security features make it virtually impossible to
recreate the permit and law enforcement can be assured that a CCW permit is
state-approved and legal," said Gary Cure, Assistant Director, County Sheriffs
of Colorado.
