Next-Generation Biometrics and Forensics

  1. 1. Next-Generation Biometrics and Forensics Moving Biometrics to the Tactical Edge
  2. 2. B Using a holistic approach, we deliver comprehensive biometric collection, processing, exploitation, and dissemina-tion tools and training for today’s high-priority identification intelligence mission needs. We are developing biometric techniques and technologies that are portable, can be used by non-experts, and provide much quicker results. Booz Allen’s biometrics and forensics capability service offering integrates and applies expert research and develop-ment resources across a large number of science and technology domains. Our high-level scientists and engineers offer their expertise in a wide variety of areas including microimmunology, DNA, physics, optics, biometrics software engineering, deployment and logistics, analytics, and biometrics standards and policy. Our advanced work extends across the broad spectrum of biometrics capa-bilities, moving biometrics from the laboratory to the tactical edge. Tactical Forensic Systems. Who Was Here? In sensitive site exploitation and other law enforcement agency operations, agents need rapid, mobile forensic collection and identification solutions to give them action-able, on-site answers to today’s most pressing identification intelligence chal-lenges. Booz Allen develops and delivers integrated, next-generation Next-Generation Biometrics and Forensics MOVING BIOMETRICS TO THE TACTICAL EDGE tactical forensic devices that leverage existing commercial off-the-shelf mobile platforms and advanced imaging tech-niques. With Booz Allen’s high-level biometrics expertise and tactical forensic system development, government and commercial agencies can provide their field agents increased situational awareness, in-field Tactical ID, urgent analytics, and more effective mission planning. Biometric and Forensic Intelligence Case Management. What Do We Know? National security and law enforcement agencies are responsible for handling multiple active and lengthy cases involving countless quantities of multimodal biometric and forensic data from many different intelligence sources. With Booz Allen’s integrated identity case manage-ment capabilities, case analysts across the world can draw on existing biometric data sources and collaborate in a meaningful and effective way. Our Joint Biometrics Identification System (JBIS) for collection and case management captures, manages, and stores all intelligence and biometric information in an integrated, biometric- and forensic-enabled system. Booz Allen’s identity and forensic analysis capabilities support both the local iden-tification of biometric evidence and the querying of central biometric databases. In the real world of intelligence gathering and law enforcement, the limitations of traditional biometric techniques are becoming increasingly clear. Biometric information is often collected under less-than-ideal conditions, making the data frequently incomplete and difficult to analyze with traditional tools. Booz Allen Hamilton, a leading strategy and technology consulting firm, develops and applies next-generation biometrics and forensics technology to solve our clients’ most difficult identification challenges.
  3. 3. C challenges and system vulnerabilities, while developing countermeasures to deter malicious attacks. As part of Booz Allen’s identity protection and biometric security engineering capability, we research, test, and evaluate system vulnerabilities to give clients a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of their biometrics systems and to ensure the protection and security of their biometric data. Biometrics and Identity Intelligence Analytics. What Else Can We Determine? As biometric data and related informa-tion sources rapidly expand, organizations need to implement and leverage scalable systems to process the increased flow of bulk data from diverse media. Harnessing the power of cloud analytics to decipher trends and patterns within big data, Booz Allen has developed a revolutionary cloud-enabled identity architecture that advances biometrics analysis by breaking down the traditional stovepipes between biometrics and all-source intelligence analysis into a consolidated platform. It allows scalability, vendor interoperability, and enhanced analytics, improving the intelligence gained from the data collected and delivering a holistic view of an identity. Remote Human Identification. Who Is That? With a partial or occluded face, inferior lighting, or a blurred or off-angle image, analysts often find that traditional, commercial off-the-shelf biometric facial identification tools are limited. Booz Allen’s remote human identification capabilities can help analysts pull critical identification intelligence out of the most challenging and occluded images, by evaluating smaller image “patches” rather than relying on just a whole face. Our facial and 3D Body recognition capabilities expand the quality and amount of available biometric data; it does more of the groundwork and allows agencies to deploy human analyst resources more efficiently in identity intel-ligence areas where they are needed. Biometric Security Engineering and Identity Protection. Is The Data Reliable? Biometric and identity management systems are marketed as a secure and trusted means to identify and verify identi-ties. However, these systems are suscep-tible to myriad attacks, including biometric spoofing; network penetration; database manipulation; software hijacking; firmware modification; and communication intercep-tion. Booz Allen can help clients investi-gate their biometric security engineering
