Securing identity with biometrics a good future

As identity theft is becoming a common place with consumers everywhere, biometric technologies are being innovated to make transactions more secure.

Such biometric technologies include iris scans, fingerprint scan, matching shape and size of palm, skin, voice and face patterns.

Biometric security systems are increasingly applied to verify identity of individuals at corporate and government sites as well as airports and border points.

The strength of biometrics is that it uses patterns that are unique to each individual; his fingerprints that belong to him alone and unlike the password on a person’s online bank account they will never be lost.

The essential objective of biometrics security is protection - protection of assets against intrusion, theft and fraud; protection of environment against unsolicited access and damage; and protection of man against terrorism, injury and loss. The necessity of positively identifying individuals is the key to safety and security for both corporate organizations and national governments and to facilitate legitimate travel and trade internationally.
