Biometric

Biometric authentication is an automated method whereby an individual's identity is confirmed by examining a unique physiological trait or behavioral characteristic, such as a fingerprint, iris, retina, or signature. Physiological traits are stable physical characteristics, such as fingerprints, palm prints and iris patterns. This type of measurement is essentially unalterable. A behavioral characteristic - such as one's signature, voice, or keystroke dynamics - is influenced by both controllable actions and less controllable psychological factors. Because behavioral characteristics can change over time, the enrolled biometric reference template must be updated each time it is used. Although behavior-based biometrics can be less expensive and less threatening to users, physiological traits tend to offer greater accuracy and security. In any case, both techniques provide a significantly higher level of identification than passwords or smart cards alone.

Advantages:

  • No more forgotten passwords, lost cards or stolen pins. You are your own password
  • Positive Identification-It identifies you and not what you have or what you carry
  • Highest level of security
  • Offers mobility
  • Impossible to forge
  • Serves as a “Key” that cannot be transferred or coerced
  • Non-intrusive
  • Safe & user friendly

Today there are over 10,000 computer rooms, vaults, research labs, day care centers, blood banks, ATMs and Military Installations to which access is controlled using devices that scan an individual's unique physiological or behavioral characteristics. It can also be integrated with other technologies like PKI, Symmetric Encryption and Smart Cards to provide the highest level of security.  More
