CT Mohegans invest in TX online ID firm

Connecticut's Mohegan tribe, eager to diversify away from the gaming business, has sunk some of its gambling proceeds into a Texas company marketing technology to verify the identity of Web users online.

Biometric Signature ID Inc. (BSI) of Dallas didn't say how much was invested by Mohegan Biometrics LLC, owned by the tribe that also operates the Mohegan Sun casino.

BSI developed patented gesture biometrics software for ID authentication via the Internet.

With a 99 percent accuracy rating and using Flash or HTML5, BSI's BioSig-ID software can be used on virtually all devices including mobile, authorities said.
