FREMONT, Calif. (AP) ¿ ActivIdentity Corp., which makes authentication technology, said Monday it bought CoreStreet Ltd., which makes identity validation products, for $20 million. The purchase price consists mostly of cash, but it will also include stock and warrants. ActivIdentity expects the purchase to close in December.
