Encrypted file generated in the BIOWRAP Multi-Layer Security (BMS) format; can incorporate both biometric and digital authentication mechanisms; may contain any type of digital data such as a text document or a large business data archive; used for safely sending digital files using email attachments, discs, flash drives, and other mediums.
BMS files can be opened with the free BIOWRAP Reader desktop application. They can also be viewed through the BIOWRAP online website application, which runs in a Web browser. Additionally, they can be accessed using the BIOWRAP Reader Web Service, which allows BMS documents to be integrated into existing document process flow platforms.
BMS files are generated using Nation Technologies' BIOWRAP software (Professional, Enterprise, and Industry editions). This software and the BIOWRAP Web interface enable users to specify retention rights and fine grained access control constraints, which limit file access based on specific criteria.
The BIOWRAP System utilizes identity-based encryption to certify the identity and credentials (company, group, industry, etc.) of an individual creating encrypted files. Encrypted files are stamped with the level of authentication used to perform the encryption. Supported identification mechanisms include biometrics, x509 PKI certificates, and BIOWRAP usernames and passwords.
