Product description

Review

“…particularly relevant…questions are raised and useful answers given…the material is extensive…substantial and well-researched material…” (Computer Bulletin, May 2003)

From the Back Cover

An in-depth look at biometrics, focused on critical issues such as accuracy, privacy, technology capabilities, and cost-effective deployment

No longer a science fiction solution, biometric technologies are being deployed by thousands of companies and public agencies to increase security, protect personal information, and reduce fraud. Along with this broad-scale deployment comes a wide range of critical issues, including privacy risks, secure biometric system design, and the strengths and weaknesses of leading technologies such as finger-scan, iris-scan, facial-scan, voice-scan, and signature-scan. A full understanding of the biometric technologies, applications, and markets is required for successful utilization of biometrics in today's enterprise environment.

Written by leading industry authorities, this book provides you with everything you need to know about the technology, the industry, the applications, and the challenges that define biometrics today. It explains why institutions are turning to biometrics to authenticate employees, customers, and citizens in mission-critical applications. It also provides a broad conceptual understanding of the technology, explains specialized terms and concepts, and concludes with an analysis of the factors you must consider when designing, deploying, and maintaining biometric systems.

Reviewing large-scale project examples, the authors:
* Discuss the metrics used to determine how well biometric systems operate
* Define how biometric deployments can be privacy-enhancing or privacy-invasive
* Dispel various myths and misunderstandings surrounding biometric technology
* Address topics such as system com-ponents, data acquisition, template generation and matching, and typical deployments for each biometric technology
