ContinuedEd.Com™ Licenses Net Nanny’s BioPassword® Technology To Provide Strong User Authentication For Online Driving Safety Courses
Bellevue, Wash., August 16, 2001 – Net Nanny Software International Inc. (CDNX: NNS), (OTCBB:
NNSWF), a provider of biometric keystroke authentication technology, and ContinuedEd.com TM , a provider of online driving safety solutions, today announced a license agreement to integrate Net Nanny’s
patented BioPassword_ technology into ContinuedEd.com’s “TicketErasers” technology.
The integration of Net Nanny’s BioPassword security solution with ContinuedEd’s existing security processes
will make online verification of registered users significantly more reliable and biometrically secure than any
other online education company. This technology will use an individual’s unique biometric typing rhythm to
provide real-time authentication and verification of students enrolled in a driving safety course. Such courses
are required by state governments to either remove points associated with a moving violation or reduce
automobile insurance premiums.
We are very pleased to enter into this business relationship with ContinuedEd to provide a key component of
security for its online driving safety courses,” said Mitch Tarr, Net Nanny’s VP of Sales. Cost-effective and
secure biometric user authentication, that is easy to deploy, is the one area that is critical for legitimizing
online education and enabling it to achieve mainstream status. We expect to continue to enter into these types
of licensing and recurring revenue agreements in other market segments as we build upon our core strong user
Net Nanny’s patented keystroke dynamics technology, BioPassword®, allows for verification of the user by
measuring the unique manner in which individuals type on keyboards, authenticating the actual user instead
of a device. The user-specific rhythm is stored as a biometric template and is used for verification purposes
when students log in to the driving safety course with their username and password.
Gari Garimella, chief operating officer of ContinuedEd.com said, “The next generation of online validation
procedures will rely exclusively on biometrics-based solutions. Of these, BioPassword’s keystroke
authentication leads the way in terms of reliability and ease of use. This unique software–only solution will
provide a far superior alternative to hardware-based biometric solutions or proctored testing solutions.
expect this collaborative effort with BioPassword to establish validation standards in the online driving safety
