The World of Biometrics

By: Briana Bellamy

Bio…what?


Biometrics is a way to identify someone
based on their unique qualities. Such as


Fingerprints


Retinas


And so on…

Why Biometrics?


Using biometrics can often be a safer and
easier way to get access things


You don’t need to remember passwords or
worry about losing a key card.


With biometrics, a simple scan would let you have
access


Some businesses already use it as an
alternative way of having staff sign in and
out


This prevents friends signing in for each other

The Enrollment Process


You begin with Enrollment


The person presents information that proves
that they are who they say they are


Then they swipe their finger (if for a finger
scanner). They do this multiple times so that,
there is a median in which it can compare the
data given and the one that is already
presented


How it would be used


After you enroll, later on you would probably
want to access a system or particular area
that is guarded by biometrics


The system then compares the information
given and makes a go/no
-
go decision

Updating, if Necessary


Like most things, people change over time.
In order to make sure that it is possible to
get passed, it is set up so that the system
can get future samples


The system can obtain more samples and “put
emphasis on the newer ones” (biometrics for
Dummies)

The Different Types


Physiological: Fingerprint, Hand scan, Iris
scan, Retina scan, and facial scan


Behavioral: Signature, Voice, Keystroke,
and gait

How it is currently being used


At Disney World




Iris based ATM


The Plan


I believe that biometrics can change the way
people spend their money


Biometrics can help prevent people from
having their identities stolen


It is often faster and easier to use biometrics
than using the original method of using Pin
#s or checks!
