Here's a friendly introduction to biometrics - the science of identifying humans based on unique physical characteristics.

You'll discover: How pattern recognition and fingerprint recognition are used The many vulnerabilities of biometric systems and how to guard against them How various countries are handling the privacy issues and what can be done to protect citizens' privacy How a scan of the palm, veins in the hand, and sonar imagery establish identity What it takes to fully authenticate a signature How gait, speech, linguistic analysis, and other types of biometric identification come into play The criteria for setting up an implementation plan How to use authentication, authorization, and access principles Written by a pair of security experts, Biometrics For Dummies gives you the basics in an easy-to-understand format that doesn't scrimp on substance.
