    • Michael Rourke Natalie Kalas Sean Stockley Vivian Graubard
    • Biometrics Basics
      • Definitions:
        • The collection, analysis, and management of data in biology.
        • Science of recognizing an individual based upon:
          • One or more intrinsic physical
          • Behavioral traits.
    • Classification of Some Biometric Traits
    • Common Questions Biometrics Answers
      • Is this person who he says he is?
      • Has this person been banned from this facility?
      • Should this person be allowed into this area?
      • Is this person wanted by the government?
      • Has this person been here before?
    • Functions of Biometric Systems
      • A biometric system can provide the following functions:
          • Verification
          • Identification
          • Screening
    • Fingerprint Scanning
      • Unique to each individual
      • Ensure the consumers’ identity
      • Businesses can protect customers
      • Scanners compare fingerprints to a database
      • Scanners are inexpensive
      • Personalized
      • Scanners can be fooled: MythBusters
      • http://www.metacafe.com/watch/250607/mythbusters_high_tech_security_system/
      • Iris scanners should be used along with fingerprint scanners
      • Ensures consumer identity safety
    • Iris Scanning
      • What is iris scanning?
      • Advantages to iris scanning
      • Iris scanning in the United States
      • Iris scanning on a global level
      • Effects on business
        • Cost reduction
        • Time efficient
    • Use of Biometrics Today
      • Border Control between Israel and Palestine
      • ATM security in Colombia, India, and Japan
      • Airport Security- biometrics in passports
    • Summary
      • Cost Effective
      • Passwords cannot be easily lost or shared
      • Personalized to each individual
      • Multiple Biometric systems ensure proper identification and minimize the likelihood of false verification
