wide array of secure applications


SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, December 17, 2012 (euro adhoc) -
Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE; Frankfurt: INV), a provider of solutions and
services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced
its Smartag Crypto tag, a new radio frequency identification (RFID) tag that
offers all the functionality and encryption capabilities of a microcontroller
smart card in a smaller and more flexible form factor. Smartag Crypto
incorporates a full-featured contactless smart card microprocessor with a large
memory capacity and cryptographic capabilities, enabling the tag to be used in
place of a smart card for a wide range of high-security and high-functionality
applications. Smartag Crypto is the newest addition to Identive's Smartag family
of high performance RFID products.

"Our new Smartag Crypto tag provides customers with a versatile new option for
ID credentials and other high-security applications needing increased
processing, memory, or cryptographic capabilities. Just like a smart card, the
tag has strong security to safeguard and manage personal information and
privileges. Smartag Crypto's small size and large memory make it ideal for
traditional, mobile and future secure applications such as payment, network
logon, physical access, transportation, digital signatures and authentication to
e-health and e-government programs. Whether adhered to a mobile phone or
embedded in a wristband or badge, Smartag Crypto also supports the growing trend
towards mobile multi-application credentials," stated Dr. Manfred Mueller, COO
Identification Products for Identive.

Michael Kober, managing director of Identive's Transponder business unit add,
"Identive's proprietary, patented and patent-pending technology as well as
advanced manufacturing made it possible to bring Smartag Crypto to market
without the use of extra IC packaging or modules, while offering high
reliability and durability. Multiple versions of the tag are already available,
and early next year we expect to introduce a 'peel and apply,' convertible tag
embedded within an ID1-sized card body, which will enable the tag's production
in standard card manufacturing and personalization environments."

The new Smartag Crypto tag is immediately available as a market-proven sticker
form factor based on Identive's tag on metal (tom™) shielding technology, which
is ideally suited for adhering to mobile devices. The Smartag Crypto tag is
designed to support a range of market-leading contactless smart card ICs,
enabling customers to choose the memory size, operating system and capabilities
that best suit their application needs. Currently Smartag Crypto is available
with NXP Semiconductors' security-certified SmartMX PKI and Inside Secure's
contactless picopass ICs.
