PLEASANTON, Calif., December 7, 2011 (euro adhoc) - idOnDemand, the pioneer in
smart identification and a business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE:
Frankfurt: INV), announces its Commercial Identity Verification (CIV) credential
offering. With the Identive SmartID card with CIV, private enterprises can
leverage the same technology and data model that the Federal government uses to
establish a secure, reliable, electronically verifiable identity program without
the requirement for cross-certification with the Federal Public Key
Infrastructure (PKI) Bridge.

"Though new in concept, CIV is quickly being recognized for the strong
authentication that it offers the private sector and its wide applicability
based on proven, standards-based technology," said Rob Zivney, VP Government &
Standards for Identive Group and a Smart Card Alliance Member. "Industry made a
significant investment in smart card research and development for government
sector identity applications. That technology can now be used by enterprises in
the private sector without the burden of maintaining policy requirements for
background checks, interoperability, and infrastructure.  With CIV, the private
sector now can use the same government-grade smart card with inherent
cryptographic capabilities for strong authentication, and leverage recognized
specifications for compatibility as they integrate the cards into their physical
access or IT infrastructure." 

Many international or multi-site companies are looking for a secure credential
that allows their employees and contractors to carry only one badge to log on to
the company network as well as to access facilities. With an idOnDemand SmartID
CIV credential, enterprises can fulfill this vision while achieving high levels
of access security and technical interoperability similar to those provided with
Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards. 

"idOnDemand SmartID CIV allows commercial enterprises to minimize the
considerable time, investment and expertise usually needed to achieve secure,
trusted identities for their employees and contractors," said Jason Hart, Chief
Executive Officer at idOnDemand. "By leveraging idOnDemand´s CIV credential, our
customers can have an electronically verifiable identity program without the
overly complex policy framework associated with issuance and use of the PIV and
PIV-I credentials -- all in a matter of weeks, not years."

Available immediately, the idOnDemand SmartID CIV offering is fully hosted and
securely managed by idOnDemand. Pricing is on a per-user basis. For more
