Should the use of biometrics for identification be monitored?

The following guest post was submitted by Katrina Manning of Build Niche Links.

Should biometric technology be monitored? To answer this, one must analyze the biometric system. To start with, what is biometrics? Biometrics is the analysis and measurement of people’s unique physical and behavioral characteristics. It’s mainly used for identification, verification and access control. Verification is a “one-to-one” matching between the person’s biometric and biometric templates in a database. Identification is a “one-to-many” matching. A person’s biometric is compared with all of the biometric templates in a database.

5 Ways Biometric Security Will Redefine Mobile Phone Authentication

The following is a guest post submitted to M2SYS by Nasrullah Patel

You may be aware of the term “biometrics” – an evolving technology used for identity authentication and access privilege. The word biometrics is derived from the Greek language where bio stands for life and metrics for measure. Biometric security technology was first made commercial in the year 1970. It has become intrinsic for almost all security technologies ranging from government and military standpoints to private organizations, healthcare, and the telecom sector.

Mobile devices play a significant role in everyday life, not only for communicating with others but also used for entertainments and social relationships. Along with the increase in the usage of mobile devices like smartphones, tablet PCs, laptops, and other portable devices, the growth of confidential data like (bank accounts, personal and official e-mails, photographs, video) that these mobile devices store is also increasing. Currently, biometric security is one of the best authentication solutions to raise security within the mobile environment and there are plenty of examples of integrating biometric technology via Mobile App Development that includes; mobile voting, banking, and performing online transactions.

Does the rising use of biometrics on mobile devices require a higher level of security?

The following is a guest post submitted to M2SYS.

When it comes to an organization’s information security systems, passwords are possibly the weakest link. This is why many inroads are being made in the field of biometric authentication technologies. Take a look at the rate of website breaches, and you can make the discernment whether or not biometrics and mobile biometrics are necessary. Companies can force users to come up with long and complex passwords. Yet, many will then write these passwords down somewhere simply because they are difficult to remember. In this regard, biometric authentication can be a foolproof approach—especially when using mobile devices that are the increasing method people use for accessing their accounts. Now the question remains, do mobile device biometrics need more security? Continue reading →
