SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, March 4, 2013 (euro adhoc) - Identive
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE; Frankfurt: INV), a provider of solutions and services
for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced that the
Hong Kong Police Force will deploy smart card readers based on Identive's
technology to comply with new security policies and protect confidential
information. Identive's local partner AMCL HK has been awarded a tender to
supply 12,500 readers utilizing Identive's smart card reader technology, to be
delivered in the first quarter of 2013.

To prevent unauthorized access and abuse of confidential information from its
networks, the Hong Kong Police Force is implementing new IT policies that
include the use of smart card-based identification credentials to authenticate
its employees. This will provide higher security than the use of a password
alone and also make it possible to track what information has been accessed and
by whom. Identive designed and supplied the chipsets for the readers to
accommodate both contact and contactless smart cards as well as secure access
modules (SAM).

"Identive is a trusted supplier of smart card reader technology for government
applications around the world, based on many years' experience providing both
standard and customized solutions to match each customer's needs. The Hong Kong
Police Force selected our reader technology because it addresses their
requirements for high security and performance, flexibility to work with various
operating systems, and rapid availability. The ability to upgrade the firmware
after deployment also ensures the readers' long-term viability even as
technology and IT policies evolve. By using Identive's reader technology to
authenticate their smart ID cards, Hong Kong's police force now can protect the
information on their networks more effectively without compromising
convenience," said Dr. Manfred Mueller, COO of Identification Products for
Identive Group.

Identive offers a wide range of standards-based smart card readers and chipsets
for a variety of government and consumer applications, including electronic ID,
social security and eGovernment as well as loyalty programs, e-Couponing,
e-Banking, online shopping and gaming activities.
