The Wonders Of BIOMETRIC TECHNOLOGY

CONSISTS OF METHODS FOR UNIQUELY RECONIZING HUMANS BASED UPON ONE OR MORE INTRINSIC PHYSICAL OR BEHAVIORAL TRAITS

Biometric Indentifier Privacy Act 1.) No person or organization shall obtain biometric identifiers for the purposees of commercial advantage without authorization 2.) A person shall not sell, lease or disclose biometric identifiers to another person without individual consent & authorization, or when disclosure is required by law enforcement with probable cause 3.) Organizations storing biometric identifiers are responsible for protecting them from unauthorized disclosure. 4.) Government shall not sell or disclose biometric indentifiers without individual consent except in the case of a criminal investigation

System uses 3 components, sensor, computer, and software. sensors- detect the characteristics being used for identifications. computer- reads and stores the information software- analuzes the characteristics, translates into graph or code and performs the actual comparisons.

~CONS~ Fingerprint *some people have damaged fingerprints Voice Recognition *easiliy corrupted by noise Iris Scan *results may be affected due to pupil size change Gait Analyze *still under research

~ PROS ~ *increased security *replaces hard-to-remember passwords which may be shared or ovserved *make it possible, automatically to know who did what, where, and when *eliminates problems caused by lost IDs or forgotten passwords by using physiological attributes, and prevents unauthorized use of lost, stolen, or "borrowed" ID cards. *reduce password administration cost.

*ENROLLMENT* the first time you use a biometric system. It records basic information about you, like your name or an identification number *Storage* Contrary to what you may see in movies, most systems don't store the complete image or record this data onto a smart card that you can carry with you *COMPARISON* the next time you use the system, it compares the trait you presnted to the information on file. then, it either accepts or rejects that you are who you claim to be.

PHYSIOLOGICAL: relates to the shape of the body. ex: fingerprints, face recognition, DNA, Palm prints, iris recgnition, & odour/scent BEHAVIORAL: relates to the behavior of a person's typing rhythm, gait, & voice.
