      Biometrics: What is it?
         Human recognition based
          on physical characteristics
         Used in Identity Access
          Management (IAM), Access
          Control, and Surveillance
         Used as a replacement for

      Biometric Classes
         Characteristics divided into
            two main classes:
               Physiological
               Behavioral

When will it be ready?
 Voice and Face Verification
    Banking
    aren’t ready yet
 Iris Scanning
    most accurate
    Most expensive
 Finger Scanning
    14th century by Joao De Barros
    is accurate and most popular
    has some issues
Key Risks
 Encourage crimes-Malaysia’s example
 Fake Fingerprint :

 Success: US Biometrics is making
  employee access to entryways,
  networks, and software easier and
  faster. It has also improved customer
  identity security and securely
  addressed risk assessment procedures
  required by regulators.
 The YMCA was faced with the problem
   of approximately 200 children waiting in
   line for about 45 minutes each day to
   sign-in for their YMCA after school

 Goal: Integrating Bio-TimeClock to
   reduce the long waiting time.
    Bio-TimeClock is a PC-based
      fingerprint software for
      employee/customer time data

 Success: Bio-TimeClock decreased the
   waiting time from 45 minutes to 15
   minutes. It also identified the children's’
   attendance and what program they were
Who does biometrics threaten?
 The security industry is the most threatened by new
  developments in physiological identification due to the
  advance of computer processing and the reduction in
  the price of biometric technology.

 Any employee who works in an industry that relies on
  human interactions could be replaced by the
  implementation of a biometrics system.

Will It be Successful?
Biometrics offer the highest security,
  convenience, speed, and efficiency compared
  to any other form of authentication.
The US Government is currently spending 1
  billion dollars to create a biometric database.
  The market size in Germany for biometrics will
  increase from 12million € in ‘04 to 377 € in
 Keeping in mind the advantages over current forms of
  authentication and the expenditure by the power countries
  of the world to develop this technology, we believe it will
  absolutely be a success and will be the main form of
  authentication in the next 5-10 years.
 Our conclusion is not unfounded: An overwhelming majority
  of IT bosses -11 out of the 12-man CIO Jury IT
  user panel--predicted biometrics will overcome the current
  technical and standards issues to be a more user-friendly
  and secure alternative to passwords.
