The Biometrics technologies used to measure and analyze personal characteristics, both physiological and behavioral. These characteristics include fingerprints, voice patterns, hand measurements, irises and others, all used to identify human characteristics and to verify identity. These biometrics or characteristics are tightly connected to an individual and cannot be forgotten,shared, stolen or easily hacked. These characteristics can uniquely identify a person, replacing or supplementing traditional security methods by providing two major improvements: personal biometrics cannot be easily stolen and an individual does not need to memorize passwords or codes. Since biometrics can better solve the problems of access control, fraud and theft, more and more organizations are considering biometrics a solution to their security problems. Biometrics gives you an alternative and higher security compared to passwords or pin identification due to the fact that passwords and pin #s can easily be compromised.
A reader or scanning device Software that converts the scanned information into digital form and compares match points A database that stores the biometric data for comparison Biometric systems will collect and store this data in order to use it for verifying personal identity. The combination of biometric data systems and biometrics recognition/ identification technologies creates the biometric security systems.
The biometric security system is a lock and capture mechanism to control access to specific data. In order to access the biometric security system, an individual will need to provide their unique characteristics or traits which will be matched to a database in the system. If there is a match, the locking system will provide access to the data for the user. The locking and capturing system will activate and record information of users who accessed the data.
