    Identix Inc. - a Motorola Inc.-funded maker of fingerprint identification devices - last week launched a division that will offer biometric authentication services to wireless and Internet service providers. The technology will allow customers of wireless services and products to authenticate their identities when conducting electronic transactions, according to Identix.

    Services such as these will become increasingly crucial as wireless use and applications grow, said Jeff Keffler, an analyst at Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. in New York. Lehman estimates that 140 million handsets will be sold next year.

    Identix's new division, Itrust, will build both the hardware and software for the fingerprint scanning devices that will be embedded in such handheld devices. Itrust will also bundle a range of validation, transaction management and content protection services based on the devices, said CEO Jim Scullion.
