Adopting Biometric Technology: Challenges and Solutions by Ravindra Das

By Ravindra Das

Many sorts of safety applied sciences are at present in use, with biometrics being one of many newest and so much state-of-the-art kinds that has been produced for mass software. Biometrics, whereas exciting, is usually broached with hesitation and bad knowing. Adopting Biometric expertise: demanding situations and ideas advocates elevated implementation of biometric know-how parts of the area the place it's been least accredited, really within the United States.

This booklet seems at numerous particular functions of biometric expertise, difficult matters that experience obstructed using biometrics in protection and supplying real looking strategies for expanding its world wide usage. it really is divided into 3 sections, with the 1st discussing societal limitations opposed to the adoption of biometric expertise in safety. the second one part provides case reports of particular purposes, similar to e-passports and e-voting, that experience already been applied and will be increased into areas the place utilization is low. The 3rd part lays out a case for the final practicality and cost that biometrics deals to appropriate company sectors, together with the advantages of enforcing the at present arguable expertise as opposed to the traditional varieties of verification.

While biometric expertise has been poorly permitted and followed within the usa in addition to different constructed international locations, it really is already a favored software in constructing countries in Asia, Africa, and jap Europe. Adopting Biometric Technology examines the societal resistance hindering the wider utilization of biometrics and offers sensible ideas for overcoming these limitations whereas displaying how its elevated program will be total advantageous.

The Logic of Time: A Model-Theoretic Investigation into the Varieties of Temporal Ontology and Temporal Discourse (Synthese Library)

The topic of Time has a large highbrow charm throughout varied dis­ ciplines. This has proven within the number of reactions got from readers of the 1st version of the current booklet. Many have reacted to concerns raised in its philosophical discussions, whereas a few have even solved the various open technical questions raised within the logical elaboration of the latter.

The Rational Expectation Hypothesis, Time-Varying Parameters and Adaptive Control: A Promising Combination? (Advances in Computational Economics)

One of many significant controversies in macroeconomics during the last 30 years has been that at the effectiveness of stabilization rules. even though, this debate, among those that think that this sort of rules is lifeless if now not damaging and those that argue in want of it, has been almost always theoretical to date.

For instance, the methodology behind it would be very similar to that of hand geometry recognition, in that the predetermined distance in the actual earlobe would be captured, and from there, the unique features would then be extracted. In terms of social issues associated with earlobe recognition, at this time, it is highly anticipated that there will not be much of them. This is because no direct contact with the ear will be required; thus, there should be no concerns with regard to privacy rights or civil liberties rights violations.

The only way to protect these particular biometric templates is when they are 100% encrypted. Biometric Technologies in the Future As mentioned previously, a lot of resources and critical funding are being spent on the research and development of newer biometric technologies. Many industry experts have raised serious concerns about this spending, even if it is worth the effort to conduct all of these research and development activities. There are many new biometric modalities that are being examined, and they range the extremities that include odor recognition (in other words, confirming the identity of an individual based upon the unique features of his or her particular odor) all the way to brain mapping (this involves taking a snapshot of an individual’s brain, mapping the fissures in both the cerebrum and the cerebellum, and from there extracting the unique features to create the respective enrollment and verification templates).

However, just like keystroke recognition, signature recognition suffers more technical issues rather than social issues. For instance, signature recognition hardly suffers from any privacy rights or civil liberties violation concerns from the public. It is also a very easy biometric modality to install and deploy, and is deemed to be extremely noninvasive to the end user. Compared to all of the biometric modalities reviewed so far in this chapter, signature recognition does not require any type of end user training, which thus greatly enhances its level of both adoption and acceptance rates by end users.
