SecuGen to Demonstrate the U20-ASFX, Fast, High Capacity OEM Fingerprint Sensor at Connect:ID 2020

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- SecuGen, a world leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, is pleased to announce that they will be demonstrating the newly released U20-ASFX, a high capacity, fully programmable, FAP 20 compliant OEM fingerprint sensor module, at the Connect:ID exhibition in Washington, D.C. next month.

The U20-ASFX is a standalone fingerprint sensor module designed for OEM developers to embed into a wide variety of hardware products that require fingerprint biometric functionality. It comes preloaded with SecuGen's Fingerprint Management System software that allows it to be used right out of the box to capture fingerprint images, extract templates, enroll, search and match fingerprints all in one device.

The U20-ASFX can store up to 20,000 fingerprint templates, which means 10,000 users can be supported on one device at 2 templates per user. This new high-capacity fingerprint sensor module is another product based on SecuGen's Unity architecture that combines SecuGen's top-of-the-line, FBI certified optical fingerprint sensor with a fully programmable single board computer built right into the compact sensor package. This revolutionary architecture facilitates the design and development of powerful new fingerprint readers and fingerprint sensor modules that are smarter, more secure, and more capable than most other OEM fingerprint modules in the market.

The core of the U20-ASFX sensor module is the rugged, high image quality U20-A optical fingerprint sensor that meets the rigorous FAP 20 image quality standard and is certified by the FBI for FIPS 201 PIV and Mobile ID applications. The U20-ASFX features an integrated Single Board Computer having a 1 GHz CPU, a fully programmable Linux system, SecuGen's fingerprint matching SDK with NIST MINEX compliant algorithms, and OpenSSL cryptographic libraries. All these are integrated into a compact package that is just barely 1 cubic inch in size.

The U20-ASFX, like other members of the Unity product line, provides the tools and technologies that allow for the rapid and efficient development of a wide variety of embedded fingerprint solutions where high quality, rugged design, and affordability are key factors.

Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen stated, "The U20-ASFX optical fingerprint sensor module is an evolutionary step from the U20-ASF. The U20-ASFX expands the template capacity of the previous version by a factor of 10. The Integration of a Single Board Computer with our FAP 20 certified fingerprint sensor module and with an open Linux development environment, makes this product enormously powerful and possibly unique in the industry. Combining all of this with a low price and compact size has been a major win for our partners."

"The SecuGen engineering team has delivered a significant improvement to our flagship OEM sensor while being able to keep the cost low," commented VP of Engineering Dan Riley. "Our team has responded to our partners' requirements and are very excited about the U20-ASFX."

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, added, "Our focus has not changed from when we started the company over 20 years ago. We work hard to deliver to our OEM partners the high-quality products and tools needed to compete successfully in diverse fields that benefit from biometric technologies. The U20-ASFX is a perfect example of this focus. We are very proud of the outcome."

SecuGen will be demonstrating the U20-ASFX in booth #542 at Connect:ID in Washington DC from Wednesday, March 11 through Thursday, March 12, 2020.

Child Sexual Abuse Settlements Obtained from St. Matthew’s Episcopal Day School in The Silicon Valley

SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Stop School Sexual Abuse (SSSA) announced settlements today of claims totaling more than $1.25 million for two survivors of child sexual abuse by a pre-kindergarten teacher at St. Matthew's Episcopal Day School in San Mateo, California. SSSA volunteers worked with the parties in these claims.

St. Matthew's teacher Anthony Satriano pled no contest to five felony counts of lewd and lascivious conduct, attempted lewd and lascivious conduct and using a child for sexual purposes. The victims, all students at St. Matthew's Episcopal Day School, ranged from 5 to 8 years old and were abused on school grounds during official school activities. Satriano was sentenced to 6 years in state prison and is currently incarcerated at San Quentin Penitentiary.

The survivors alleged that St. Matthew's and Head of School Julie Galles failed to supervise Satriano, allowing him to be alone with students whenever he desired, during which time he took thousands of lewd pictures and videos of young girl students, some of whom he posed or dressed in "encasement" bondage outfits. Satriano sexually abused the students in his classroom and in public school spaces during official school activities (regular class time, after-school enrichment programs, after care or extended care, and school camps).

The cases also alleged that St Matthew's and its employees, including Head of School Galles, ignored Satriano's inappropriate physical contact with students and grooming conduct, failed to have child protection policies and procedures in place, and hired staff that did not meet legally-mandated minimum qualifications. The cases alleged that St. Matthew's and Head of School Galles received many complaints about security but elected to ignore them. These settlements are separate from previously announced settlements.

An important part of victim advocacy is helping survivors and their families address the trauma of betrayal by teachers who abuse and the schools that enable or facilitate the teachers' abuse. Allowing survivors to be honest and open about what happened is a key piece for survivors to move forward. In addition to providing victim advocacy, SSSA maintains detailed information on school sexual abuse cases in California, including survivor statements, at https://stopschoolsexualabuse.com/.

More information on the St. Matthew's Episcopal Day School sexual abuse can be obtained at https://www.stopschoolsexualabuse.com/st-matthews-episcopal-day-school-sexual-abuse

The lead case is MA Doe vs. St. Matthew's Episcopal Day School et al, 18 CIV 01309, San Mateo County Superior Court. The plaintiff was represented by the Law Offices of Joseph C. George, Ph.D.

About Stop School Sexual Abuse

Knowledge is power. Stop School Sexual Abuse is a volunteer-run organization that provides victim advocacy services to school sexual abuse survivors and their families, as well as a website where survivors can tell their stories and a database of school sexual abuse cases. Our mission is to advocate and educate in order to reduce sexual abuse in schools.
