LAKE WORTH, Florida, March 15, 2010 - Recently, Graphic Security Systems Corporation (GSSC) and Foster +
Freeman (F+F) signed a License Agreement, which authorizes combined usage of
F+F's software along with GSSC's SI Digital Decoding technology and IP,
becoming an official licensee of GSSC. The software will be used to digitally
authenticate VIP, VIPhoto and IPI in all major passports and ID documents

Foster + Freeman, the leading maker of high resolution multi-spectral
imaging devices, will offer GSSC's SI Digital Decoding software in its
systems such as the "VSC 6000," a comprehensive digital imaging platform,
which facilitates document examiners with an extensive range of utilities for
detecting irregularities on altered and counterfeit documents. The VSC 6000
is equipped with a high-resolution color camera and zoom lens, in addition to
a range of viewing filters and multiple illumination sources - from white
light to UV and IR, of various wavelengths. Instrument functions are selected
and controlled through a simple graphical user interface.

"We are always striving to collaborate with the key players in the
security and authentication market, to offer our customers innovative
solutions for their needs," explains Scott Perkins, GSSC Chief Operating
Officer. "By implementing GSSC's SI Digital Decoding software, in combination
with Foster + Freeman imaging devices, document examiners will be able to
authenticate VIPhoto and other common security features in one step,".
VIPhoto, which is part of the Scrambled Indicia technology portfolio,
developed by Graphic Security Systems Corporation, allows invisible
personalized data to be integrated or hidden into a facial photo or
background in variable form, making identity documents extremely resistant to
tampering or alteration. It is currently in use on multiple ID cards,
driver's licenses and passports, worldwide.
