Biometrics in the New World: The Cloud, Mobile Technology by Julian Ashbourn

By Julian Ashbourn

This booklet takes a clean examine biometrics and id administration, extending the discussion past technical concerns, and exploring the various broader societal and philosophical facets surrounding using biometric functions. positive factors: offers a quick historical past of the advance of biometrics, and describes the various popularly held misconceptions surrounding the know-how; investigates the demanding situations and chances of biometrics throughout 3rd occasion infrastructures and on cellular computing units; offers information on biometric structures layout; explores the mechanisms essential to allow id intelligence, together with logging mechanisms, facts communications and information codecs; discusses such utilization concerns as collaboration frameworks, and messaging and knowledge translation; examines the impression of biometric applied sciences on society, protecting problems with privateness and consumer elements; experiences the present scenario in id administration, and predicts the place those developments may well take us within the future.

Sample text

It may be expressed as binary code, an encoded character string or an image. It may represent the biometric trait directly, or it may be a mathematical expression derived from extracted features of the biometric. In any event, it will be a small piece of code suitable for processing by computer. This code is then J. 1007/978-3-319-04159-9_3, © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014 25 26 3 Assumptions and Misconceptions stored as the reference template. When a live sample is collected, for matching against the reference, a similar biometric capture process is undertaken in order to produce another piece of code which represents the live biometric (of course, we may also compare two stored biometrics).

All manner of federated identity ideas will surface, many claiming to successfully integrate biometric identity verification. The degree to which they can intelligently integrate biometrics into this landscape will vary significantly and there will exist a good deal of misunderstanding in this respect. Across all of these areas, there exists the danger of making assumptions around the efficacy of a biometric matching transaction, without really understanding what is happening at a lower level. This lower level includes both technological and human factors.

Fingerprints may retain their fundamental patterns, but the fingertips themselves will change and the skin will become more brittle with age. In addition, minor blemishes and abrasions will take longer to heal as the individual ages. Those fingerprint readers which scan beneath the visible surface may have an advantage in this respect. Faces change fairly dramatically, the process being variable according to the individual genetic profile. In addition, temporary biological change, as might be experienced with serious illness for example, is often reflected in the face, as is stress.
