Real-World Issues and Applications from the Biometrics Front Lines


Beyond passwords and PINS, beyond ID cards, keys, and tokens, stands biometrics--the science of recognizing people by physical characteristics or personal traits. Learn about the technical properties and applications of fingerprints, hand geometry, facial and voice recognition, iris and retinal scans, signature and keystroke dynamics, and futuristic biometrics such as vein patterns. Follow sample scenarios and real-world case studies to understand ensuring biometric liveness, deploying biometrics in large-scale systems, developing technical standards, and testing and evaluating biometric technologies. Make financial and business dealings safer and more reliable, improve safety, and balance your needs for speed, convenience, and accuracy with help from this thorough resource.



  • Select the right authentication methods for your unique operating environment and security needs
  • Learn biometric technologies through case studies detailing FBI programs, Super Bowl surveillance, and more
  • Learn about the role for biometrics in a national identity program
  • Explore esoteric biometrics such as vein patterns, facial thermography, DNA, body odor, and hand grip recognition
  • Increase confidence in biometric security with liveness testing
  • Guard against multiple identity fraud and identify theft
  • Test and evaluate biometric systems for metrics such as performance, vulnerability, and compliance with emerging standards
  • Assess your needs and find the right balance between security, convenience, and cost-benefit concerns
