                          SECURITY AND LOAN AGREEMENT
                             (ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE)

This Agreement is entered into between    IDENTIX INCORPORATED
                                          , a     Corporation

(herein called "Borrower") and IMPERIAL BANK (herein called "Bank").

1. Bank hereby commits, subject to all the terms and conditions of this
   Agreement and prior to the termination of its commitment as hereinafter
   provided, to make loans to Borrower from time to time in such amounts as
   may be determined by Bank up to, but not exceeding in the aggregate unpaid
   principal balance, the following Borrowing Base:

                        80.000% of Eligible Accounts

   and in no event more than $5,000,000.00

2. The amount of each loan made by Bank to Borrower hereunder shall be debited
   to the loan ledger account of Borrower maintained by Bank (herein called
   "Loan Account") and Bank shall credit the Loan Account with all loan
   repayments made by Borrower. Borrower promises to pay Bank (a) the unpaid
   balance of Borrower's Loan Account on demand and (b) on or before the tenth
   day of each month, interest on the average daily unpaid balance of the Loan
   Account during the immediately preceding month at the rate of NO percent
   (0.000%) per annum in excess of the rate of interest which Bank has
   announced as its prime lending rate ("Prime Rate") which shall vary
   concurrently with any change in such Prime Rate. Interest shall be computed
   at the above rate on the basis of the actual number of days during which the
   principal balance of the loan account is outstanding divided by 360, which
   shall for interest computation purposes be considered one year. Bank at its
   option may demand payment of any or all of the amount due under the Loan
   Account including accrued but unpaid interest at any time. Such notice may
   be given verbally or in writing and should be effective upon receipt by
   Borrower. The amount of interest payable each month by Borrower shall not
   be less than a minimum monthly charge of $250.00. Bank is hereby authorized
   to charge Borrower's deposit account(s) with Bank for all sums due Bank under
   this Agreement.

3. Requests for loans hereunder shall be in writing duly executed by Borrower in
   a form satisfactory to Bank and shall contain a certification setting forth
   the matters referred to in Section 1, which shall disclose that Borrower is
   entitled to the amount of loan being requested.

4. As used in this Agreement, the following terms shall have the following

   A.  "Accounts" means any right to payment for goods sold or leased, or to be
       sold or to be leased, or for services rendered or to be rendered no
       matter how evidenced, including accounts receivable, contract rights,
       chattel paper, instruments, purchase orders, notes, drafts, acceptances,
       general intangibles and other forms of obligations and receivables.

   B.  "Collateral" means any and all personal property of Borrower which is
       assigned or hereafter is assigned to Bank as security or in which Bank
       now has or hereafter acquires a security interest.

   C.  "Eligible Accounts" means all of Borrower's Accounts excluding,
       however, (1) all Accounts under which payment is not received within 90
       days from any invoice date, (2) all Accounts against which the account
       debtor or any other person obligated to make payment thereon asserts any
       defense, offset, counterclaim or other right to avoid or reduce the
       liability represented by the Account and (3) any Accounts if the account
       debtor or any other person liable in connection therewith is insolvent,
       subject to bankruptcy or receivership proceedings or has made an
       assignment for the benefit of creditors or whose credit standing is
       unacceptable to Bank and Bank has so notified Borrower. Eligible Accounts
       shall only include such accounts as Bank in its sole discretion shall
       determine are eligible from time to time.

5. Borrower hereby assigns to Bank all Borrower's present and future Accounts,
   including all proceeds due thereunder, all guaranties and security therefor,
   and hereby grants to Bank a continuing security interest in all moneys in the
   Collateral Account referred to in Section 6 hereof, as security for any and
   all obligations of Borrower to Bank, whether now owing or hereafter incurred
   and whether direct, indirect, absolute or contingent. So long as Borrower is
   indebted to Bank or Bank is committed to extend credit to Borrower, Borrower
   will execute and deliver to Bank such assignments, including Bank's standard
   forms of Specific or General Assignment covering individual Accounts,
   notices, financing statements, and other documents and papers as Bank may
   require in order to affirm, effectuate or further assure the assignment to
   Bank of the Collateral or to give any third party, including the account
   debtors obligated on the Accounts, notice of Bank's interest in the

6. Until Bank exercises its rights to collect the Accounts pursuant to
   paragraph 10, Borrower will collect with diligence all Borrower's Accounts,
   provided that no legal action shall be maintained thereon or in connection
   therewith without Bank's prior written consent. Any collection of Accounts by
   Borrower, whether in the form of cash, checks, notes, or other instruments
   for the payment of money (properly endorsed or assigned where required to
   enable Bank to collect same), shall be in trust for Bank, and Borrower
   shall keep all such collections separate and apart from all other funds and
   property so as to be capable of identification as the property of Bank and
   deliver said collections daily to Bank in the identical form received. The
   proceeds of such collections when received by Bank may be applied by Bank
   directly to the payment of Borrower's Loan Account or any other obligation
   secured hereby. Any credit given by Bank upon receipt of said proceeds shall
   be conditional credit subject to collection. Returned items at Bank's option
   may be charged to Borrower's general account. All collections of the Accounts
   shall be set forth on an itemized schedule, showing the name of the account
   debtor, the amount of each payment and such other information as Bank may

   paragraph 10, Borrower may continue its present policies with respect to
   returned merchandise and adjustments. However, Borrower shall immediately
   notify Bank of all cases involving returns, repossessions, and loss or damage
   of or to merchandise represented by the Accounts and of any credits,
   adjustments or disputes arising in connection with the goods or services
   represented by the Accounts and, in any of such events, Borrower will
   immediately pay to Bank from its own funds (and not from the proceeds of
   Accounts or Inventory) for application to Borrower's Loan Account or any
   other obligation secured hereby the amount of any credit for such returned
   or repossessed merchandise and adjustments made to any of the Accounts.

   that Borrower is duly organized and existing in the State of its
   incorporation and the execution, delivery and performance hereof are within
   Borrower's corporate powers, have been duly authorized and are not in
   conflict with law or the terms of any charter, by-law or other incorporation
   papers, or of any indenture, agreement or undertaking to which Borrower is a
   party or by which Borrower is found or affected; (ii) Borrower is, or at the
   time the collateral becomes subject to Bank's security interest will be, the
   true and lawful owner of and has, or at the time the collateral becomes
   subject to Bank's security interest will have, good and clear title to the
   Collateral, subject only to Bank's rights therein; (iii) Each Account is, or
   at the time the Account comes into existence will be, a true and correct
   statement of a bona fide indebtedness incurred by the debtor named therein in
   the amount of the Account for either merchandise sold or delivered (or being
   held subject to Borrower's delivery instructions) to, or services rendered,
   performed and accepted by, the account debtor; (iv) That there are or will be
   no defenses, counterclaims, or setoffs which may be asserted against the

     statements and information as Bank may reasonably request and inform Bank
     immediately upon the occurrence of a material adverse change therein; (ii)
     Furnish Bank periodically, in such form and detail and at such times as
     Bank may require, statements showing aging and reconciliation of the

     (iv) Promptly notify Bank of any attachment or other legal process levied
     against any of the Collateral and any information received by Borrower

     affect the value of the Collateral or the rights and remedies of Bank in
     respect thereto; (v) Reimburse Bank upon demand for any and all legal

     collection of the Collateral and the preparation and enforcement of any
     agreement relating thereto; (vi) Notify Bank of each location and of each
     office of Borrower at which records of Borrower relating to the Accounts
     are kept; (vii) Provide, maintain and deliver to Bank policies insuring the
     Collateral against loss or damage by such risks and in such amounts, forms
     and companies as Bank may require and with loss payable solely to Bank,
     and, in the event Bank takes possession of the Collateral, the insurance
     policy or policies and any unearned or returned premium thereon shall at

     proceeds of any other insurance covering or in any way relating to the
     Collateral, whether now in existence or hereafter obtained, being hereby
     assigned to Bank; and (viii) in the event the unpaid balance of Borrower's
     Loan Account shall exceed the maximum amount of outstanding loans to which

    claim or proceeding with respect thereto; and to do any and all things
    necessary and proper to carry out the purpose herein contemplated.

11. Until Borrower's Loan Account and all other obligations secured hereby
    shall have been repaid in full, Borrower shall not sell, dispose of or grant
    a security interest in any of the Collateral other than to Bank, or execute
    any financing statements covering the Collateral in favor of any secured

    provided in Section 1 hereof; (b) Declare all sums secured hereby
    immediately due and payable; (c) immediately take possession of the
