Biometrics databases are often flawed – people will suffer for their inexperience
Biometric systems can have detrimental long-term consequences if they are not designed properly. Let’s take a look at a recent incoming request.
Incoming lead details
State Health Insurance Agency described their project as follows: our role is to provide technical support and infrastructure to meet the agency’s needs. Therefore, we need to develop a duplicate resolver to isolate already registered lives (Enrollees). These enrollees are from different local government areas of the state, including both urban and rural settlements with little or no network. Our Biometric Enrolment Device can work online and offline. We capture the enrollee’s primary, facial, and biometric data. Initially, we started with capturing ten fingers per enrollee, but the engineers later changed this to four fingers – two left and two right fingers. We did not buy any biometric search system, and a de-duplication system is urgently needed. The current enrolment database size is 50,000 using fingerprint biometric data in ANSI 378 template format. Our goal is to have 2M+ as we cover the entire state.
