TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 24 (UPI) -- U.S. company Sypris Electronics announced the launch of a new assurance information security technology prototype with a next-generation sensor system.

Sypris says its new sensor, integrated into its Cryptographic Ignition Key, provides secured identity authentication with biometric technologies and is designed to support U.S. government applications.

According to a news release the new biometric technology offers "real-time identity capture, management and authentication, compliments of the technology embedded in the sensor."

"The access enforcement mechanism on the sensor builds on our management of controls to limit propagation of access rights," John Walsh, Sypris Electronics president, said in a statement.

"This next-generation biometric prototype demonstrates our commitment to developing and incorporating advanced security technology for high assurance information security applications."
