An insight into the biometric industry and the steps for successful deployment

Biometrics technologies verify identity through characteristics such as fingerprints, voices, and faces. By providing increased security and convenience, biometrics have begun to see widespread deployment in network, e-commerce, and retail applications. This book provides in-depth analysis of biometrics as a solution for authenticating employees and customers. Leading authority, Samir Nanavati explores privacy, security, accuracy, system design, user perceptions, and lessons learned in biometric deployments. He also assesses the real-world strengths and weaknesses of leading biometric technologies: finger-scan, iris-scan, facial-scan, voice-scan, and signature-scan. This accessible book is a necessary step in understanding and implementing biometrics.
