The Princeton Identity Legacy

Princeton Identity Inc. was formerly a division of SRI International marketed under the SRI Identity brand. SRI and SRI Identity have had a long and successful history of delivering leading-edge technology going back to the roots of the company in Stanford University, RCA Labs, and Sarnoff Labs, where many familiar technologies were born. Some of these technologies have become household items, including color television, the computer mouse, and Siri (licensed to Apple). Others have had broader impact, such as ground-scanning satellites, automated check processing, medical devices and cancer-fighting drugs.

Recent work in biometric technologies was applied to a wide range of government and commercial needs, as well as for mainstream Physical Identity Access Management (PIAM) applications. It is this recent work, and its potential applications to the general security market and other related markets that led to the formation of Princeton Identity.
