  1. 1. Impact of ICT on Society <ul><li>Security Measure </li></ul><ul><li>(Biometrics, Authentication) </li></ul>Prepared By : Abdullah Afeeq b. Imam Jurjani Date : 29/05/2007
  2. 2. Authentication is a process where users verify that they say they are. The user who attempts to perform functions in a system is in fact the user who is authorised to do so. <ul><li>Existing Authentication Method </li></ul><ul><li>Something you know: </li></ul><ul><li>User Id, password, pin number </li></ul><ul><li>Something you have: </li></ul><ul><li>Smart card, magnetic card, key </li></ul><ul><li>Something you know and have: </li></ul><ul><li>ATM card + pin number </li></ul><ul><li>Something you naturally have: </li></ul><ul><li>Fingerprint, face, iris, hand </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>What is biometric? </li></ul><ul><li>A biometric is a measurable biological phenomena </li></ul><ul><li>Biometrics are automated methods of recognizing a person </li></ul><ul><li>based on a physiological or behavioral characteristics </li></ul><ul><li>Why it is preferred? </li></ul><ul><li>Accurate and able to speed up processes </li></ul><ul><li>Convenience: can be used in place of many existing security </li></ul><ul><li>methods </li></ul><ul><li>Becoming socially acceptance and inexpensive </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Biometrics Type – Fingerprint Scan </li></ul><ul><li>Uses 30 to 40 points at each finger </li></ul><ul><li>10 fingers per person </li></ul><ul><li>Biometrics Type – Iris Scan </li></ul><ul><li>Uses about 250 differentiating features </li></ul><ul><li>Very accurate </li></ul><ul><li>Higher matching performance </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Biometrics Type – Retina Scan </li></ul><ul><li>Uses over 400 points for identification </li></ul><ul><li>Very accurate </li></ul><ul><li>Biometrics Type – Hand Geometry </li></ul><ul><li>Uses 3D shape of hand </li></ul><ul><li>Hand length, width, thickness </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Biometrics Technology – Facial Scan </li></ul><ul><li>Measurement of facial features </li></ul><ul><li>Relationship between features </li></ul><ul><li>Minimal user cooperation required </li></ul><ul><li>Biometrics Technology – Signature Scan </li></ul><ul><li>Dynamics of signature creation </li></ul><ul><li>Acceleration, pressure, stroke length </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>New Biometric Technology </li></ul><ul><li>DNA Matching </li></ul><ul><li>- analysis on DNA for identification </li></ul><ul><li>Vein Identification </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>- use vein patterns on the back of hand </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Conclusions </li></ul><ul><li>Biometric gives great impact to society. The need for convenience and high security has brought biometrics to the following applications : </li></ul><ul><li>National security </li></ul><ul><li>Military, immigration and other government purpose </li></ul><ul><li>Citizen Identification </li></ul><ul><li>Identify/authentify citizens interact with government agencies </li></ul><ul><li>PC/Network Access </li></ul><ul><li>Secure access to PCs, networks and other computer resources </li></ul><ul><li>Physical access/ Time and Attendance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Secure access to given area at a given time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Surveillance and Screening </li></ul><ul><li> Identify/authentify individuals present in a given location </li></ul><ul><li>Retail / ATM / Point of Sale: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide identification/authentication for transactions for goods and services </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Criminal Identification </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify/verify individuals in law enforcement application </li></ul></ul>
