The good news is at least the agencies that need true security will combine biometrics with some of the other tried and true methods such as combinations. There is alwa...
  • Security Expert And My Passwords
    1,481 words
    Biometrics uses personal characteristics to identify users. When it comes to security, mapping unique patterns and traits in fingerprints, irises or voices is considered light years ahead of forcing employees to memorize combinations of letters and numbers - which are easily compromised and easily forgotten. The technology works by taking measurements - whether it is the weight and length of bones in the hand or the pattern of blood vessels inside the eye or the pattern of fingerprints - and the...
