Portland, OR -- Eid Passport, Inc. was awarded U.S. Patent number 7,631,805 from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for "Systems and Methods for Managing Security at Plural Facilities" on December 15, 2009.

Eid Passport, the nation’s leading commercial provider of Department of Defense (DoD) accepted credentials for non-DoD credentialed workers, now has two process patents directed at identity management and access control of personnel who seek entry at secured facilities such as military bases, government buildings and critical infrastructure locations.

"It represents a substantial expansion of our original U.S. Patent number 6,779,721.
