Biometrics

























There
are many things about you

that are
unique
.



The pattern of lines on your fingertips.



The pattern of the coloured part of your eyes (the
iris
).



T
he sound pattern of your voice.



The proportions of your head and fac
e.


If the police have this information about us in their database, when they find a fingerprint at
the scene of a crime or have a photo of someone on a security camera, a computer can
make very accurate comparisons and tell them who the person concerned i
s and whether
they have a criminal record.


What are the advantages of such a new system?


Are there any possible disadvantages?
